We're all in many groups, some overlapping. For example, you're also part of Voat and likely fit into other more specific groups/cliques within Voat.

I mean a group as a set of people who hold like opinions, or think alike, or accept/tolerate others who share some common place/goal/purpose.

i agree with your statement. but consider those few sociopaths and psychopaths who do not empathize with others and have no need for other humans (other than convenience). such people do not have group tendencies that the rest of us have. they do not view other people as "people" through a natural response. instead some figure it out, but must learn it (like they would learn math) as it does not come natural to them.

Psychopathy is a bit of a wild card. I imagine some end up leading violent groups and some lower functioning end up as fodder for the conflict.

As you rightly point out, my assertion deals with the 'normal' person if such a thing exists. :)

I'm not sure how to challenge that as that's the point of Ostracizing them. Keep pushing them out of other groups so they have no where to hide or thinned out so much they can't form large enough groups to do anything.

The ostracized can connect based on nothing more than their common exclusion. How do you prevent that group from becoming large?

What happens when the excluded group is radical enough to use violence to retaliate against their 'oppressors'?

I wouldn't want to prevent them from becoming larger. Getting the worst of society out on the open and away from other innocent groups, is the ideal. Muslims wouldn't be blanket targeted if their violent members were ostracized into a nice easily targeted package. Simular to how Christians handled their association with the KKK.
