In local social groups, the minority stopped attempting to voice out as most of their past attempts have been overshadowed by the majority. Here, the minority have an unusually high probability getting heard. In fact, it would be a misnomer to use the word “minority” in AIESEC, the distinction is redundant.
Also, under the banner of the institution’s name, we could always cite 'rules/structures/plans' even in pure social occasions. For example, if some sub-groups of friends happened to flock together during dinner, someone could suggest switching seats in the middle of dinner citing the aim of “adding diversity” or “making new friends”, and chances are there would no objections, some would even commend it as “great idea!”. If you do that in a local social group, you might get labelled as "nerd", "weirdo”, “too much” or even “he/she wants to show off”.
Recently an old friend told me that 5 years ago there were a few occasions where I ignored him or
I just asked him to shut up when he wanted to talk to me enthusiastically. I
was shocked as I couldn't recall any memory of that. I hope that he accepts my 5-year-late apology. It also made me realising
that most of the times we would not realise our meanness when we happened to
be, while the listeners suffered it insurmountably.
I understand that it is hard to take care of everyone's feelings, and we would not want to be timid
or reserved to correct others when they have done something inherently wrong.
But the general goal we would want to strive for is to avoid statements like
"Why are you so stupid?"
"Why do you look that weird?"
"You are so childish"
"Stop eating please you are so fat
Those are epitomes of meanness. The general direction we want to
strive for is “honest opinions supported by strong facts and evidence”. Or even
better, supply constructive suggestions that really help. Or even the best, speak only when it truly matters.
 Now looking back I feel that it was a huge mistake for not aggressively persuading my other friends to join AIESEC. I was too concerned on being neutral and was trying to be “not annoying”.
 I am not in the Startup communities. But I follow Paul Graham, Y-Combinator, Peter Thiel, Ben Horowitz etc. closely. So I might be wrong by just observing sheerly from the outset.
