Homo sapiens is a small-tribe species

Here’s the core of the issue, as I see it. I think of homo sapiens as a small-tribe species. The large social structures we’ve learned to build are not agile, or resilient, or people-friendly. They don’t suit us. And mostly they no longer work well. The evidence that they are not working has been around since at least the mid 1960s.1
