I'm not bashing survivalists, I'm just saying it's a bit self-indulged to want to abandon society and live alone hunting for your own food.
I got to thinking (one of the more dangerous things I do). There are countless people, mostly men, who would love to break off from society and live a self-sustaining life. That's great and all, but it's kind of selfish. I'm not bashing survivalists, I'm just saying it's a bit self-indulged to want to abandon society and live alone hunting for your own food. I bring this all up because I have a better idea (I think).
I was thinking about tribal life. Tribes have survived thousands of years because the members depend on one another. If I were to break off from society, I would personally rather be in a tribal group with my "brothers" and "sisters" to back me up. What do guys think? Pros? Cons?
Tribe \Tribe\, n. [L. tribus, originally, a third part of the
Roman people, afterwards, a division of the people, a tribe;
of uncertain origin: cf. F. tribu.]
1. A family, race, or series of generations, descending from
the same progenitor, and kept distinct, as in the case of
the twelve tribes of Israel, descended from the twelve
sons of Jacob. "The Lion of the tribe of Juda." --Rev. v.
A wealthy Hebrew of my tribe. --Shak.
