Is It Wrong to Shun Others because of Differing Political Viewpoints?

Margaret Thatcher felt like an outsider, during her university years, because she had a different point of view than most of the people on her campus.  

Why would such a thing happen on a university campus where free speech and differing opinions should be highly valued and encouraged?

Have you ever felt shunned, like that?  What were the circumstances? How do you move beyond it?

If an objective of higher learning is to study (and understand) opposing views, why would anyone pre-judge a student who seems to have a viewpoint which differs from the majority’s viewpoint?
