Hi Stephen P. King 

I define good as that which enhances life and evil
as that which diminishes it.

Hi Craig,

    To me it boils down to a willingness to be objective. If one defines a 
standard of measure of good and bad, then one must apply it consistently. 
Otherwise there is no such thing as "good' or 'bad". Tribalism comes with a 
shiftable measure of good and bad (stealing from non-members of the tribe is 
OK, stealing from tribe members is bad, for example), this makes tribalism bad, 
IMHO, not matter what kind of tribalism it is!
