Psyc: Tribal Bullying


What are your opinions on bullying by tribes? As members of society we all live in tribes.

Tribe examples include family, work, church, city, sports teams, gangs, cliques, organizations, income, discrimination profiles, political parties, military, demographics, national pride, etc.

When my daughter was in middle school, the in-girls clique bullying was terrible.

When I was in grade school we lived on the wrong side of tracks and we were poor. The kids from the "the north side of Colfax" did name-calling, shoving, ridiculed, and ostracized my brother, my sisters, and me. We were not the only school kids who the bullies attacked. Colfax was a label of convenience, rather, in reflection, we were poor, but not in poverty. I suspect other branding like patched clothes,  paper bags not lunch boxes, heritage, grammar, size, clicks, and family advertised labels for bully aggression. I remind myself, the sins of youth are not the sins of adults. Years later, after meeting the bullies from my youth, they had none of that character. 

Tribes have four actions, recruit, inclusion, exclusion, and expelling.

Tribe behavior includes identity, defense, ranks, sustainability, contribution, commitment, boundaries, dues, events, charter, fraternity, and attraction.

During a person's lifetime, the person will be a member of many tribes. Tribe membership can come and go, rise and fall, persist or fail. Membership changes are fundamental to the tempo of life and death. From the time of birth, we build membership in the tribe of self. When I die, I will be a member of a US veteran's gravesite. 

Bullying is the use of force, coercion, or threat, to abuse, aggressively dominate or intimidate. The bully's behavior often repeats and becomes habitual.


Besides mobbing, what are the other profiles for tribal bullying?

What is the self-defense for tribal bully attacks?
