Taste, smell, touch, feel.
Race and Religion and Marijuana and Homosexuality/LGBT and GMO and Ecology for just a few examples.
Good, bad, ugly, pretty.
Like, don't like.
We believe this..

Alcohol is this..

Everybody is Catholic in our community so we are Catholic.
Everybody hates gays so we hate gays.
Everybody loves gays so we love gays.
Black is the enemy, so black is the enemy.
A heard of cows goes into the barn to milk in a certain order.
Number one cow, number two cow, number three cow, etc etc etc.
Each with it's own milking station.
The pecking order.
Try to disrupt that and you got a mess.
A new startup farm wants to start a milking herd.
They buy fifty cows from an existing herd of established cows and truck them two states away to their fields and farm and milking station.
It takes a bit of doing but the cows adapt and milking resumes.
Another farmer does the same thing only he buys a few cows here and a few cows there and gets his fifty cows from about two dozen different places and trucks them two states away to make up his new dairy farm.
Everything is chaos.
The first farmers cows already had their pecking order.
#1, #2, #3, etc etc etc.
The second farmer that bought his cows from all different places had to endure while the cows worked out their pecking order by fighting and pushing and bellering and biting and kicking one another until it was established who was who.
Blood and broken bodies everywhere.
Brute rage and force by a fifteen hundred pound cow that is mad as hell.
Teeth and hoves and body slams raging.
We do the same thing.
Constantly establishing our pecking order.
Just like cows.
Introduce something new into this society and you got hell to pay.
