Life is very simple
It’s all tribalism
It’s all which narrative you want to buy into.
Which story you want to believe.
This gets us up in the morning at the end of the day. These stories. They cause us to fight. They cause us to work. They cause us to plan and build.
You have to believe in these stories, and some you are born into, and some you go out and find, and some you create within you and sell to others.
It’s hard to fake when you won’t die for what you believe in.
