Detailing Groupthink

Thanks again to Rug for another nice link.

This article explains the dynamics of groupthink in Liberal Academia, but it fairly applies to the phenomena across a range of scenarios.

It serves to emphasize my desire for a better debate to break out in this country. I have high hopes for the power of the internet in introducing new ideas to people who otherwise might never have seen a differing political opinion.
