Okay, but it includes that. Note that "outliers" want freedom, too.

Don't attempt to make them. Consensus is rare, and when it does occur
(no dissenters), "collective decision" is not needed anyway.

The point is that "outliers" will not tolerate having their peaceful
behavior bound by others' political decisions.
