Very well said...
Like it Victoria! You nailed many great points. I don't have much to add because you seemed to have covered it all :D
Thanks for putting your heart into this, very sincere.
No need to thank me Freelee...it is my observation and it needed to be said in the midst and now hopefully the wake of everything that has transpired in the last few days..too many conflicts and put downs which were not only unnecessary, but also childish and immature. I am glad to give my perspective of what it means to be in a group or community..I have that background and it is something I know about well. Some people just don't get that there are guidelines that need to be kept in every group there is no matter what...without sounding like a recorder over and over again, I still would like to repeat...There would be chaos and no order if that were to happen..then we would not have anything to go by...it would then not make sense...that is the meaning of a group or community.
i am new 2 this site...is there something i a missing? what happened? is it ok i have some hot dudes that inspire me on my homepage :-)
whatever the problem is i hope we can all get along.....and i guess a thank u is in order to u victoria for nipping whatevr the prob was in the bud!

This is very insightful, you seem to intuitively understand part of the process of ponerization within a group.
in what way could this text not be used to justify for example discrimination of minority cultures in relation to status quo?
isn't rebellion one of the ways in which a community evolves. doesn't conformity just because easily lead to stagnation, narrow-mindedness etc.?
it seems contradictory to me to take an example such as hasidic jews who (as I understand it) refuses to conform to the rules and cultural traditions of the community at large in a text which is intended to make the point of how you should comform to a community's rules or leave
do you think jews or other people who had to flee from their homes would be okay if the people of their new country said 'accept our rules to the letter or get the hell out of here'. people who comes to a new country tends to adapt a bit out of necessity but also still bring some of their own culture into the mix. that's how communities evolve. at least to a degree
btw I have no intention of breaking any rules of this community personally. I simply have no desire to. but I find this text illogical
btw isn't for example the jewish community (since you mention it in particular in your text) somewhat famous for the often rebellious culture that exist within it's own group aswell as in relation to other communities? like the saying goes "for every two Jews there are three opinions". ok that was just a sidenote to my point.
