Team Loyalty

In religion, sports, politics, war… humans are first and foremost team animals. They believe what the team believes. No matter what a member of the team does, it is considered heroic. No matter what a member of some other team does, it is dastardly. If you publicly defend some other team or criticise the home team, be prepared for death threats coming in by phone and email. Teams work to discourage independent thought. They also work to keep their members sipping only from officially approved sources of information. This is how they keep everyone believing the name lies and delusions. This is how they persuade the team to commit atrocities.
