Neo-tribalism has continued to expand its reach--and shows no signs of subsiding.

From the smoldering wreckage of World War II arose a general realization that the directions where fascist forms of neo-tribalism led were anything but good.  Under widespread  revulsion, European fascist parties in general, and National Socialism in particular, shriveled toward extinction.

However, their techniques for eliciting and feeding on tribalistic responses to problems of the modern era have by no means been abandoned.  These techniques are still very much alive--and if anything, have become more prevalent today than they were in the 1930s.

To recognize their ongoing power requires mainly that we look past differences in agendas or ideologies of the movements that practice them, and keep our gaze steady on the emotions on which they feed.
