  1. The information found here http://www.nl.edu/mediaresources/cliques/ expands on this more.

    My question is: Can you please expound on the difference between (harmful) cliques and (informal and formal) special interest groups? It seems that there can be a fine line here between the proposed definition of (harmful) cliques and specific groups such as religious groups, sporting groups, competitive organizations, etc.

    When does a group based on shared mutual interests cross the line from its sanctioned raison-d’etre to being categorized as exclusive, indoctrinating, etc. ?

    Thank you!
