Freedom From Tribal Politics
When spirituality becomes a religion, religion becomes political.
Result: monkey see, monkey do.
To influence, social manipulation has to take place in order to maintain an idea. It’s what chimpanzees do; they intimidate – from medieval Latin intimidat- ‘make timid’, to frighten or overawe, especially in order to make people do what we want.
Chimpanzee politics: chimpanzees acknowledge and respect a hierarchy within their group. Dominant relationships are influenced by alliances, and coalitions are formed through social manipulation to secure and maintain influential positions, especially within the inner circle.
How much have we evolved?
Politics binds us to someone else’s freedom.
In reality, we are already free.
