Frith and Honor

I have enjoyed reading MountainGuerilla for several years because he has a way of getting right to the heart of the matter with no BS. His tone and choice of wording matches the cadence of every great SF First Sargent I have ever known. In his most recent article on building tribe, he addresses a serious issue of concern about
how the people you know, will impact your group during the coming upheavals in this world. If you think having a tribe you trust is not important for the future, then I invite you to enjoy your myopic land, go back to sniffing rainbow unicorn-farts and keep drinking the koolaid they dispense to you. Don't bother reading further. MountainGuerilla would phrase that a little differently in medical language which uses the word, rectum.

"Tribes and clans are based on shared morals and world views. Trying to base them on convenience or the material possessions of one member of the group being enough to support the rest of the group is not tribe, and it’s not going to work under stress.

Simply claiming someone as a tribe member though, based solely on what they claim to be their beliefs is insufficient. Character has been defined as “what you do when no one is looking.” Morals can be defined the same way. Do you KNOW what the values and morals are of the people you expect to trust with the lives of your family? “Oh, they’re III like me!” doesn’t cut it in reality. How many of the cowards who lined up to register their firearms in Connecticut are walking around with a III patch on their jacket, or are reading blogs like this, talking shit about how they’ll never give up?

You have to possess a shared sense of the importance of Frith and Honor, regardless of the labels you use to define it, or your tribe is as useless as a bunch of individuals with no common goals can be. "
