 The Tribalist's Handbook

 A word to the wise: generally those who are most offended
 by "The Tribalist's Handbook" are the most inflamed of
 messianic tribalists.  If the pamphlet gets under your skin,
 it is because you recognize yourself in it.

 If you are a strident tribalist, consider seeking help
 for your affliction before you do real damage to your
 neighbors.  Think about your behavior and realize that
 you are the mirror image of your enemy.

 Wayne McGuire

 The Tribalist's Handbook


 A day in which the world media are not entirely preoccupied
 with the problems and needs of your tribe is a bad day
 indeed.

 A fine paradox: the more you battle your tribal enemies,
 the more tribal enemies you accumulate.

 A militant universalism can often be the covert expression
 of a militant xenophobia: both are driven by fear and
 hatred of the tribal other.

 Agonize about the birth rate of your tribe compared to
 other tribes.

 All communications are a form of psychological warfare in
 the holy struggle of your tribe against all the other
 tribes.

 All forms of idolatry are repugnant except the idolatry of
 your tribe.

 All forms of messianism, tribalism, nationalism, patriotism
 and ethnocentrism are ridiculous and repulsive -- except
 your own, which are blessed by God.

 All tribes are created equal, but some tribes are more
 equal than others.

 Always accuse the other tribes of harboring the same evil
 intentions towards your tribe that your tribe harbors
 towards them.

 Always be on the lookout for threats to your tribe.

 Always be the aggrieved party.

 Always blame the other tribes for your bad behavior.

 Always blame the other tribes for your personal problems.

 Always blame the other tribes for your problems.

 Always blame the other tribes for your tribal problems.

 Always keep the attention of the world focused on the sins
 of the other tribes and off the sins of your tribe.

 Always keep the other tribes on the defensive.

 Always put the interests of your tribe above any other
 interest.

 Any crime is permitted for the sake of your tribe.

 Any crime or atrocity committed by your tribe is an act of
 God.

 Any crime which provides an advantage for your tribe over
 any other tribe is justified.

 Any criticism of tribalism in general is an unacceptable
 attack on your tribe in particular.

 Any deed, no matter how criminal or evil, which increases
 the wealth and power of your tribe is morally justified.

 Any friend of your tribal enemies is automatically your
 tribal enemy.

 Any government around the world that can't be easily bribed
 and corrupted is a menace to your tribe.

 Any number of children of other tribes can be easily
 sacrificed for the advancement of your tribe.

 Any politician that can't be easily bribed, corrupted or
 blackmailed is a menace to your tribe.

 Anyone who disagrees with any member of your tribe about
 anything is an enemy of God.

 Anyone who disagrees with any member of your tribe about
 anything is an enemy of your tribe who must be utterly
 annihilated.

 Anyone who disagrees with any member of your tribe about
 anything must be destroyed.

 Anyone who disagrees with your reading of your tribal
 doctrine is a blasphemer, an idolater and a heretic.

 Anyone who disagrees with your tribe is an enemy of God.

 Anyone who disagrees with your tribe or with any member of
 your tribe about anything must be utterly annihilated.

 Anyone who messes with you messes with your entire tribe.

 Anyone who opposes you opposes your tribe. Anyone who
 opposes your tribe opposes God. Therefore, anyone who
 opposes you opposes God.

 Anyone who opposes your tribe opposes God.

 Anyone who refuses to exterminate the enemies of your tribe
 must be exterminated.

 Anyone who refuses to hate the enemies of your tribe is an
 enemy of your tribe.

 Anyone who won't apologize for or participate in the crimes
 of your tribe must be destroyed.

 Anyone who won't grant you special favors and privileges is
 an enemy of your tribe.

 Anyone who won't hate your tribal enemies is your tribal
 enemy.

 Anyone who won't kiss the ass of your tribe is an evil
 enemy of your tribe.

 Anyone who won't kiss the ass of your tribe must be
 annihilated.

 Anything that is good for your tribe is universally good;
 anything that is bad for your tribe is universally bad.

 Assimilation: a sinister process which weakens the strength
 of your tribe in its vicious competition with all the other
 tribes for survival, security, wealth and power.

 Assume that everyone is a dangerous tribal enemy until
 proven otherwise.

 Be a chameleon: fluidly adopt whatever political or
 ideological coloration best advances your tribal interests
 at the moment.

 Be more ruthless with tribal insiders who become tribal
 traitors than with tribal enemies who are tribal outsiders.

 Be obnoxious, aggressive, bullying, demanding and
 high-handed in your dealings with other tribes.

 Be true to your tribe.

 Because your tribe is better than all the other tribes, you
 are better than any tribal outsider.

 Because your tribe is superior to all the other tribes, you
 are automatically superior to any tribal outsider.

 Become totally in love with your tribe to the most
 spectacular degree of imbecility.

 Being a member of the special tribe means never having to
 say you're sorry.

 Being a member of the special tribe means that you have a
 divine mandate to lie, steal, cheat and murder without
 restraint or shame in your dealings with all the other
 tribes

 Being a member of the special tribe means you never have to
 apologize for committing crimes against other tribes.

 Better to be a conspiracy principal than a conspiracy
 theorist.

 the fanaticism of your tribe.

 positions on all sides of every issue, argument and
 controversy.

 the information might come in handy in the various schemes
 of your tribe.

 tribe.

 Collected detailed dirt on everyone.

 most despicable and evil deeds and practices. Confuse the
 hell out of everyone, including yourself.

 Come up with ingenious explanations to explain away
 misdeeds and crimes by your tribe.

 Commit acts of vandalism against your tribe and blame it on
 the other tribes. Then milk the other tribes for sympathy
 and shake them down for money, favors and apologies.

 tribe and blame them on your tribal enemies.

 the other tribes as evil and the worst deeds of your tribe
 as virtuous.

 Control the media, control the headlines; control the
 headlines, control the world.

 flattery, bribery, blackmail and threats.

 the advantage of your tribe.

 and even-handed regarding the torrents of abuse you
 regularly direct against all the other tribes.

 themselves against your tribe's predations.

 cunning of your tribe, he would have given them at least
 half a brain -- but He didn't.

 If it's good for your tribe it's good for you.

 If it's good for your tribe, do it.

 If you fail to perform your detailed and arcane tribal
 rituals to the letter, God will punish you and your tribe
 and the universe will collapse.

 If you look carefully, you can find outrageous insults to
 your tribe everywhere.

 If you think "The Tribalist's Handbook" applies exclusively
 to your tribe, you are a besotted messianic tribalist to
 the utmost degree.

 In a nutshell, you are God.

 In order to save your tribe from the scourge of
 assimilation, commit provocations that polarize the rest of
 the world against it.

 In private conversations among your fellow tribal members,
 gloat and boast about the power of your tribe to influence
 the world, but dismiss as wild conspiracy theories any
 remarks by tribal outsiders about the power of your tribe.

 In your dealings with other tribes always take and never
 give.

 In your holy war against the other tribes cultivate all
 those personality traits that are generally referred to as
 sociopathic.

 Incite and exploit conflict among all the other tribes.

 Inflict the insanity of your messianic tribalism on the
 entire world in the name of God.

 Invading and violating the physical, psychological and
 cultural space of other tribes is your tribe's divine
 imperative.

 Is it good for the tribe?

 Is it good for your tribe?

 It is a poor tribalist indeed whose thoughts are not
 perpetually obsessed with enemies of and threats to his or
 her tribe.

 It is impossible for your tribe to be happy unless all the
 other tribes are miserable.

 It is necessary diligently to intercept and analyze each
 and every private communication in the world in order to
 ferret out tribal enemies, tribal traitors and evil plots
 against your tribe.

 It is not enough simply to crush and plunder other tribes:
 one must savor their humiliation.

 It's important always to get the last laugh in your
 dealings with the other tribes.

 Justify every evil deed committed by your tribe in the name
 of your good intentions.

 Keep detailed lists and files on anyone who has ever
 offended or who in the future might offend your tribe.

 Keep detailed lists of all your tribal enemies.

 conflicts.

 holy wars.

 Life is a big blame game in which the object is to outblame
 the other tribes.

 Life is a game in which the object is to use your tribe to
 maximize your personal advantage in the vicious competition
 with the rest of the human race for survival, security,
 wealth and power.

 Life is a nasty game in which the object is for your tribe
 to out-cheat, out-steal, out-blame, out-bluster, out-bully
 and out-scam all the other tribes.

 Life is a vicious competitive struggle between your tribe
 and all the other tribes for wealth and power.

 Life is an endless holy war between your tribe and all the
 other tribes.

 Life is an eternal holy war between your tribe and all the
 other tribes in the vicious competitive struggle for wealth

 enemies of your tribe.

 Like a beggar in a third world metropolis, prominently

 for sympathy and handouts.

 Like the God of your tribe, you are a master of the
 universe.

 Live in perpetual fear that the other tribes will figure
 out what your tribe is up to.

 Love your fellow tribal member as you love yourself.

 Loyalty to your tribe takes precedence over loyalty to any
 nation, government, organization, party or interest in the
 world.

 Lying, stealing, cheating, poisoning, arson, terrorism,
 murdering and blackmail are good if they provide an
 advantage for your tribe over any other tribe.

 Marginalize, censor, terrorize, and , if necessary, murder
 the critics of your tribe. Silence them by whatever means
 are necessary.

 Messianic tribalism is an infinitely downward-spiraling
 negative feedbook loop in which the problems of a tribe
 mount in direct proportion to its misguided efforts to
 solve them.

 Messianic tribalism: an aromatic blend of megalomania,
 paranoia, infantilism, aggression, narcissism, sociopathy,
 obsessive-compulsive disorder, manic-depression,
 sadomasochism, self-delusion, authoritarianism,
 totalitarianism, vampirism, xenophobia and racism.

 Morality and ethics are tools with which to maximize the
 wealth and power of your tribe.

 Murder, conspiracy, arson, blackmail, terrorism, drug
 trafficking, extortion, threats, intimidation, collective
 punishment, kidnapping, theft, money laundering, fraud,
 lies, deception, torture, assassination, embezzlement,
 counterfeiting, poisoning and slander are all valuable
 tools in the vicious competitive struggle between your
 tribe and all the other tribes for wealth and power.

 nobody.

 outsider.

 Never miss an opportunity to play a dirty trick on another
 tribe.

 Never stop complaining about how many injustices and
 injuries your tribe has suffered.

 Never stop complaining about how the entire world is
 against your tribe.

 Never trust a tribal outsider.

 No matter how many favors and gifts the other tribes shower
 upon your tribe, their tribute will never be enough.

 Nothing is more pleasurable than destroying the cultures of
 other tribes.

 Nothing is more pleasurable than ridiculing other tribes.

 Now and then the suspicion will creep into your mind that
 your messianic tribalism has made you quite mad and ruined
 your social relations. Suppress these suspicions with all
 your might and redouble your efforts to ferret out and
 crush your tribal enemies.

 Now matter how much tribal outsiders grovel to curry favor
 with your tribe, kick in their teeth in the end.

 Obsessively fight ancient battles with your tribal enemies
 over and over again.

 Of all forms of tribalism, messianic tribalism which
 combines ethnic and religious chauvinism with infantile
 fantasies of apocalypse is the most volatile and dangerous.

 bigotry.

 to bully and dominate the entire world with impunity.

 to drop its mask and openly express its contempt and hatred
 for all the other tribes with impunity.

 discipline of your tribe.

 tribe has a right to judge you in its courts of law.

 divine right to be as obnoxious, predatory and vindictive
 as you like.

 Since you are a member of the special tribe, all the other
 tribes owe you a living.

 Since you are a member of the special tribe, everything you
 say must be true.

 Since you are a member of the special tribe, you are a very
 special person indeed.

 or her own and fighting fair and square.

 That which is Other must be destroyed.

 The arrogance of other tribes is maddening.

 The baser your tribe's motives, the more pious and
 self-righteous should be the profession of its good
 intentions.

 enemies of his or her tribe.
