I would not say the tribe owns us though

Because that would be at least as egotistical on the part of whoever runs the tribe. I do agree that there are philosophical problems with self-ownership, to some degree penned here http://arkansaswatch.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-libertarian-pr...

People ask me if I am a communitarian or an individualist. I'd say with the smallest unit of government, the family, I am fairly communitarian. I get less so as you go up (to VERY individualist at the highest levels) but I do figure I owe more respect to what my neighbor wants than what some guy in a capital 1,000 miles away wants.

Localism is for people who can still sleep at night even though somebody they don't know in a city they have never been is doing things differently. ("Localism, A Philosophy of Government" on Amazon for Kindle or Barnes and Noble ebook websites)

It's a balance...

the tribe should give due respect to the individual and the individual should give due respect to the tribe.

You mentioned a geographic element. To me the "tribe" is "local organic society". The circle of people you can engage face-to-face while still being able to return home daily for sleep. The further you get away from that the further you are from your tribe.

What gets me is many/most of these people who disdain society and the tribe, they rant on and on about how great the "market" is when that market is in fact nearly one-and-the-same with local society and the tribe.

The benefits given to each side of the individual=market relationship have the same dynamics of the individual=local society/tribe relationship. Both sides need each other to function properly.

Humans in isolation are miserable short-lived creatures cut-off from many relational and logistical innovations...
