The effect upon the non-conformists is just the opposite of the ostensibly intended effect---because leaders have not been careful students of human patterns of behavior and the roots of those patterns. Excluding non-conformists from communal dialogue alienates them, generates anger and disdain. If they have been excluded they have reduced respect for those who have excluded them. It is a counter-productive strategy. It does not lead to conflict resolution and so does not lead to communal peace and tranquility. The above pattern of response may be observed in people of all levels of education, income, ages, ethnic origin, religious orientation and sophistication. It is futile to pretend otherwise.
