Right or wrong; inclusion or exclusion

Sometimes it's about being right or wrong; but often it's about the fear of being excluded.
Thus, right or wrong gives way to the need and desire for inclusion -- having inside influence -- thus to avoid the hell of exclusion.

Paraphrased from the comments of 
David Brooks in an TV interview with Charlie Rose, March 2016

Of course, the unsaid thing is that the principles behind being "right" might be compromised on the altar of "inclusion".

Sometimes, the isolation of being "right" is overwhelming. It takes a special type to handle the outsider's role.

Sometimes, there's really no other choice.
