Mensagem:  All of this narrow-mindedness and squabling between tribes boils down to 'birds of a feather'. Provincial peoples always believe that those who look and speak the way they do, are good, and anyone who doesn't is untrustworthy until proven otherwise. It's quite understandable, because for most of human history it helped ensure survival; tribes were small - there weren't that many people who spoke one's particular dialect, for one thing. In the modern world, this kind of attitude is a hindrance.
