“what you speak is what you get”
tithing? Strictly?
standarization of expression —media, books
Deliverancy: Demons
“Things are truer if un-African, so we quote Americans. It is traditional, but projected

hostilily to Islam: works in Nigeria, weird in Zambia, impossible in Indonesia
flexible networks, intensive sociability, egalitarian
