    Remarkable is right.

    It’s interesting that she said her feeling of tribal connection was the biggest help to her recovery. That powerful tribalism is what multiculturalists want to destroy.

    • truepeers

      Fwiw, a tribal connection is what the murderers have, Israel goes beyond that in its nationhood; it is a very multiethnic national family – culturally and physically distinct Jews from many parts of Asia, nEurope, Africa, the Americas, etc. – and, notwithstanding leftist attempts to find victims of “racism” in the mix, they generally all trust each other deeply in daily life which they know can turn deadly at any moment. “Diversity” works in Israel because they also have a clear idea of the fundamental unity on which it is based.

        The great god Diversity is crap. It doesn’t make you a racist to appreciate the persons with whom you share culture and language. Anyway, the tribal impulse is hard-wired, so better to deal with it.

        • truepeers

          It is not hard wired, at least not innate: you can take an infant from any parents and raise him in any culture. But it is the essence of culture that it is about constituting groups around a shared understanding of the sacred. My point is simply that national identity goes beyond tribalism and Jews are not tribal because ethical monotheism is something distinct from tribal culture Where you invoke your gods not as universals but as your own unique protectors. Jews do not kill in god’s name. That’s tribal.
