Colin Wilson and the Ousiders

Colin Wilson wrote that you can measure the health of any society by how it treats outsiders. I think that this theorem is especially profound these days and would completely change society if the core concept was taken to heart. Unfortunately it isn't and for the most part outsiders are scorned, demonized, alienated and rejected. I guess it means that you have to be pretty tough to be an outsider, something I have first hand experience with.
