“And your clan is?”

It’s not a hidden fact that we Somalis live by a clan ideology. This can go way back into our history. With 4.5 now the basis foundation of our political structure, I am afraid that if we do not eradicate this mindset out of the picture, we may soon see passports and IDs being handed out to citizens, containing a section which states the individual’s tribe/clan. 

Being excessive with Orwell’s 1984? You bet but only this time, we are the ones walking ourselves into this mess, not a government conspiracy. 

So tell me, what makes you think this cannot happen? We need to wake up, and fast because clannish mindset is, excuse my French, fucking up our way of thinking.

Sad but true.
