There is an old Arab Bedouin saying: “I, against my brothers. I and my brothers against my cousins. I and my brothers and my cousins against the world.”
In this episode the guys consider examples of being part of a tribe in both business and the wider society and talk about the pros and cons of tribalism. They make certain startling f***ing observations, someone who campaigns for available healthcare for all isn’t a communist, someone who advocates for a robust immigration system isn’t a nazi and the person who opposed your budget amendments in the office isn’t part of a sinister global cartel dedicated to ruining your f***ing career … well perhaps the last one might be true!
