Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's glib, superficial pop-fascism bollocks.

If a board of directors run a company into the ground and they get called on it, that's just tribalism?

If a firm of engineers builds a bridge and it falls down, demanding accountability is just tribalism?

If a government fucks up in a major way, voting them out is just tribalism?

You think it's different for economics and business, why?

You're all for accountability, except for the people who made the decisions that led directly the massive systemic failure, and are in the lucky position of being shielded from voter influence.

Keep your violent projections to yourself. No one here[1] is talking about stringing anyone up from a lamp post - we'd just like to make sure that in future these stupid, miseducated and self-absorbed people aren't allowed into positions of influence where they can make stupid, miseducated, and self-serving decisions that have predictably ruinous consequences.

[1] Except Twank. Who's only doing it as performance art. (Probably.)
