Issues arise concerned with consilidating groups
On the other hand, in countries where the government operates independently of the people and where free speech or exchange of ideas is discouraged, there may not be enough ideas to solve issues, and governments may persist in trying to solve them in wrongheaded or ineffective ways.
Any proposed solution to something that affects society is likely to make some people unhappy, and this discontent can promote discord.
Though the United States was a strong supporter of the need to develop a Jewish State in Israel, its support has come at a cost of its relationship with many Arabic nations.
Additionally, countries that allow multiple political parties and free expression of speech have yet another issue when it comes to tackling some of the problems that plague its society.
While some people might view abortion as the solution to this problem, other members of the society remain strongly opposed to its use.
In itself, strong disagreements on how to solve problems create divides in social groups.
