    A consensus among thinking men often leads to polarization of the masses. There is nothing wrong with this; it is the natural order of things.

    This, apparently, is what is happening, today. I believe it is caused, primarily, by a controlled News Media. ( Big Brother is also attempting to censor the Internet, our main free source). There are many issues, - a current big one is Health Freedom. We must get involved & protect our Liberties - as well as retrieving ones we have lost.

    To what extent is the dignity of the individuality of the individual actually honored, within the family or society.

    Historically, a signal hindrance to human progress has been the pride and fear based cultural premium that has been placed on conformity, in most settings.

    As George Orwell expressed it:

    " The more people chant about their freedom and how free they are, the more loudly I hear their chains rattling."

    Ultimately, Freedom is a state of Mind.
