A petition that encourages new Government policy to view social media as a medium to combat tribalism.

Asabiyyah is an Arabic word originally signifying tribalism or clanism, but as tribes evolved into nations, it has come to connote blind, unquestioning support for one's national, religious, ethnic, or political group.

Engagement of the other hand is associated with the human need for conversation and debate, to encourage learning from others. This petition encourages new Government policy to view social media as a medium to combat asabiyyah.
