    Which would you prefer if you had to pick one?

    Tribalism in this context celebrating loyalty to one's tribal elder(s), respecting fellow tribesmen and following a strict tribal law.

    Caste system in this context meaning one owes one's place in society due to the cicrumstances in which they were born. It would be rare for someone to move to a different caste in a short-term period.



    Yes, we know they are both backward systems and we would prefer it if neither were present but I want to discuss the merits and demerits of both systems and which would ultimately be a better system for a society.


    (Yes I know you can have tribalism within a caste system but let us assume they are mutually exclusive)

    tribalism easy.

    much more flexible and able to adapt to the changing environment. At least on a small scale. Large scale tribalism doesnt work so well i dont think. Meritocracy as well. the most intelligent/brutal/skillful leader will be the tribal elder.

    Tribal system. Caste is only there to protect the elites, and people who create systems to protect their own interests (and of fear of not being able to cope without being on top) are mentally unhealthy.

    Caste system is weakend by the bottom rung. An influentiol leader cause easily cause an uprising. Tribal systems are more equal and generally work better.
