    It's too bad this kind of thinking is no longer allowed by the tribes. It sure works in business.

    Two people who collaborate well will be about three times as effective as each of them operating independently, because each will see what the other might miss—plus they can leverage each other’s strengths while holding each other accountable to higher standards.

    I think most of us have common goals for the most part. The problem is that (a) we're so quick to distort those of the other tribe, and (b) as things get worse we're less like to listen to and really understand other points of view.

    Another issue is that so many now confuse collaboration with capitulation. It's not a zero sum game. If we collaborate on several issues, you'll get things more your way on some, and I will on others. And most valuable is the fact that REAL collaboration creates INNOVATION, something all NEW, on many others.

    Some people have the skill set and temperament required for collaboration, and some don't.

    Anyone who is calling me a racist, is out to destroy me. If I am stupid enough to work with that person, I am empowering my enemy.

    And that is how the warring Greek city-states fought off the most powerful empire the world had ever seen.

    Correct. They did not go around calling each other racist, and were able to work together against an outside threat.

    Something we cannot do today in America.

    Perhaps YOU should look at your own behaviours and attitudes before accusing others of trying to destroy you.

    Anyone who is so paranoid as to think others are trying to destroy him, is the type of person who destroys others. Just the idea that you would strike first at the notion of criticism shows that criticism is valid. That you’re using it as an excuse to destroy others first.
