Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Actually, the identification of the Tribe with the elites isn't accurate. You think Bush's 30% in the US are all elite? Lots of them are in the Western Tribe though.

Bush's tribe is the "proud to be an American" tribe. I wonder whether those who say "Bush makes me ashamed to be American" are accusing Bush of betraying the tribe, or actually placing themselves outside it.

What are people here proud of being?

And, do you have to be proud of your tribe every time, all the time? I have to say I have a hard time saying "I'm proud to be Spanish" or "I'm proud of being European" even when I would have reason to (for instance, when I post favourable news in the open threads I never say "this makes me proud").

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
