It is impossible to miss the societal push to ‘tribalize’ or identify with a specific group. Companies like 23 and Me, Ancestry.com, CRI Genetics want to analyze DNA to give individuals an ethnic, racial category. Social forces push identification according to trending feelings of self-selection. Political parties want folks to choose an ideological affiliation. Church denominations sometimes ask members’ identities to evolve as their doctrines change.
