How do you sift through the chaff and assure you aren't ignoring the wheat?

So to comes down to deciding, impose on religious freedom or sacrifice the indoctrinated and overpowered?
A) can we test a choice to tell the difference between indoctrinated or based on life experiences?

B) the idea of support is really weird. This make a government role in maintaining a veil of ignorance over parties so one party doesn't revoke support.
