Earning Money in a Tribal Culture Tribes of the Planet Atakpame, Togo West Africa Sunday, May 13, 2007
In the USA we ignore Kings, Queens, caste systems, chiefs, tribes and racism, we tend to be too Noble or politically correct and above this type of behavior. The reality is we are naïve and insulated from this by the oceans and our desire to ignore or overlook the sad and tribal culture of Mexico. Plus, it is hard to see the tribes of the USA, under all the consumer goods.
Africa is Tribal without the cover of consumer goods.
A tribe enforces the rules of the culture with violence or force.
Here is my opinion of degrees of enforcement of Tribal Rules on the planet earth.
MOST to LEAST enforced:
Middle East - Most India Mexico Africa - Less Russia - I am guessing, I do not know. Central America Caribbean South America Asia Europe USA and Australia - Least
I am going to ignore Canada just to annoy them. (Same culture as the USA.)
Tribal customs and rituals are difficult to see, and the pure culture with all the rules and regulation are all masked and hidden under modern consumerism and objects. Hard to see a person is acting like a primitive person when they are driving a Mercedes and has a Cell phone in their hands.
What is fun here in Africa is because there is very little of the modern conveniences, like dishes, books, Chinese goods; I can see the tribal behavior and not have it hidden by a car or consumer goods. Africa is less violent than the Middle East or India, the women are safer then say the Arabic…
More or less this is freedom of religions in a nutshell, the more the freedom of all religions the less tribal.
What is great is the business of a tribe; a tribe is dysfunctional in their ability to compete with the culture of a non-tribal business. Unless, the tribe has slavery, or a dictator with forced labor.
In a tribe, the King or Chief does not work. In a non-tribal culture, the King or Chief works, prepares the way for the braves, and growth continues.
Fun to watch the failure or stagnation of an Africa business, when the person become the primary boss or owner, they just stop working because a boss does not work in West Africa, thereby guaranteeing the growth stops and a life of living in constant recession. It is like watching a comedy of errors. It would be more also fun to watch in India is not so cluttered and the Middle East if a person was not killed while watching, one bad comment they could kidnap you like the BBC reporter in Palestine, and you do not even have to talk bad, just be there.
