Every organization loves to have *conformist* and such conformism is
enforced by various means -- primarily fear -- fear of livelyhood, fear of
loss of position, fear of *spiritual* progress whatever that may mean, fear
of other means. It is the same technique that religion has used from
beginning of time to keep the faithful in line. So this is nothing new.
Organizations will find independent minded people who think for themselves
difficult to deal with, because they will be unpredictable. But great things
have been achieved not by conformists but those who are willing to take the
risk and take independent actions/stands, however unacceptable or unpopular
at that time and it takes a lot of courage and may have to face potential
difficulties. But in the end such daring ones are the ones which make a
change in bettering the conditions of common folks.
So you are in excellent company.
