A tribe is a group of people that are one one way or another connected to each other, with one leader, connected to a vision. This concept of “tribe building” got me, mostly because when I had learned about this concept, I had serendipitous realized that I had one of my own tribes. This tribe is called the Remi Tribe. The Remi Tribe is known to be one of the founding peoples of Rome.
The Belgian Celt tribes were known throughout history as prideful, had internal leadership struggles and rejected all pro-Roman leadership ideals and hated the neighboring barbarians.
The Remi wanted the tribes to ally with Caesar. This could make sense because then the tribes could eliminate the combative Barbarians that the tribes hated so much. But instead of fighting just one war, the remaining Tribes wanted to take on both the Barbarians and Caesar, simultaneously. This strategy proved to be very self-sabotaging. This strategy could not have appeared promising or intelligent from a strategic point of view at that time for the Remi. They were obviously the only tribe with the vision large enough to see what was coming in the future. It did not appear to be very bright.
The Remi saw what was coming, but what were they to do? What a catch-22.
Disrespecting and rejecting the Remi ideals turned out to be a fatal move for the remaining tribes. This was a bad time for the “take everyone on” strategy, because the neighboring Barbarians were constantly engaging in warfare against the remaining Celt Belgian forces. Both the barbarians and Caesar had forces superior to the remaining Belgian tribes… Belgian Tribe overwhelm seemed to be a very likely reality in the future.
The barbarian forces were superior in combat compared to the remaining Belgian tribes. Between the lack of strong Belgian leadership and sense of unity coupled with the imminent barbarian forces and also Caesar on the warpath; the Remi made a strategic decision to reject the strategy of the remaining Belgian Celts by allying with Caesar.
Why did the Remi reject the other tribes sense of rejection? Well not only would their be an endless melee between the Belgians/Barbarians, Caesar would be able to march in an conquer as everyone else remains divided and off balance (aka no more tribes for anyone). This could not have been an ideal atmosphere to be challenging an army like Caesar’s. The Remi must have seen this coming. This is why the Remi made the choices they made. They rejected rejection and made their own leadership decisions that made long term strategic sense.
The Remi literally went out of their way to march to Caesar for an alliance. That says something. This strategic leadership decision turned out to change history forever.
