-We must at all costs avoid saying no because people prefer those who say yes, and this allows us to survive in hostile territory.
-What other people think is more important than what we feel.
-We must be amusing at all times and sneer at those who express their real feelings; it's dangerous for a tribe to allow its members to show their feelings.
-We must buy jewelry; it identifies us with our tribe, just as body piercing identifies those of a different tribe.
People who are different are dangerous; they belong to another tribe; they want our lands and our women.
