I think that you’ve touched on a possible story subject, dealing with the difficulty we have changing our minds about things. For instance, choose someone who believes something YOU believe about a politicized subject. Show them as being critical of the inability of a friend or co-worker to shift their beliefs. But then show how our protagonist himself is “frozen” in some other way that he cannot see. Help the reader see how this influences our world.
