kerravonsen: Susan aiming bow and arrows: "Sharp Mind" (sharp-mind)
[personal profile] kerravonsen posting in [community profile] bearing_witness
I just stumbled across a fascinating series of articles about Groupthink, particularly in the context of Christian Fundamentalism:
The Danger of Groupthink Part 1: Consensus and Power
The Danger of Groupthink Part 2: Unanimity and Paranoia
Groupthink Part 3: A Dangerous Sense of Invulnerability
Groupthink Part 4: Overestimating the Group's High Moral Stance

I think it clarifies a bit more why groups which start off with good intentions could end up "preaching hate".
