Bro, dont narrow you mind. Western influences such as fashion, partying, weddings and few others are causes of it. These cultures never uphold and value the traditions and cultures. You go partying in night clubs and utilizing your bu brain you cause problem at home and in the streets. Previously Engans were in men's house,decisions were made with collective brains. Furthermore traditional dances as part of the traditional entertainment did not brought any troubles to the societies like now modern entertainments acompanied with alcohols. The end results are apparent you klia.

I was thinking more about the effects Tribal fighting has on the community.

Tribal fighting has been around thousands of years prior to western influences.

The problem with alcohol is that people don't drink responsibly. Any consenting adult that drinks should be aware of the effects alcohol consumption has on themselves.

Responsible drinking is defined "as drinking which is legal, informed and considered". Individuals need to be responsible for their actions and held accountable.

Can you really blame western society if individuals don't drink responsible?

Cheers

km, tribal fights were traditions of Enga and occured for geniune reasons with careful planning from start to end. It occured either accidently or through careful planning from the men's house. Alcohol related problems on the other hand is like adding fuel on to the fire. Some Engans are not responsible drinkers. Drinking makes them feel like heros which results in domestic violence to tribal fights.
If you can look back to the traditional socialization in Enga. Every activities proceed through the decisions made by the elders of the village or the men's house. Now people are utilizing their personal throughts and feelings. As a result of this fights are norms in Enga.
Its better if we all Engans come up with strategies to combat these current issues in Enga and uphold the traditions and customs of Enga. Respecting the cultures, traditions and beliefs of the past kept Enga peaceful in the past (source, Engan aging people)
