This is a fantastic post! Really thought-provoking. It makes me wonder how modern infrastructure can support the kind of tribal living people want. One difficulty with major social media services, which are supposed to help us find our tribes, is that they exert constant pressure to *expand* our connections. This makes sense for those services; more connections benefits them. And obviously we want our tribes to be flexible and expandable. But it seems difficult to form an effective tribe on Twitter, for example (which is perhaps one reason I see more and more people set up Discords).
