One hears a cry for “unity” today, but though America is one country, we have always been actually many nations. On this show, author Louis Salome talks about places like Afghanistan, the other “stans,” Iraq, and other countries whose borders have been artificially imposed. His book is titled Violence, Veils, and Bloodlines. Nationalism is an ugly twist of tribalism, which an essential and timeless part of us as humans. Salome posits that tribalism is a universal need throughout all cultures and history. It can not be defeated, perhaps its time to embrace this basic reality.
