Conformity - I am assuming that by the chocolate group, you mean those selling the chocolate.  Basically, they preach conformity and everyone that does not conform is an outcast.  When Brother Leon enlists the help of the Vigils, he sets in motion a chain of events that shows the dangerous of conformity.  Even through Jerry is at first commanded by the Vigils not to sell the chocolates for the first days of the sale, eventually he makes the decision on his own not to conform.  The individual in this novel is the outcast, because free thinking is the enemy of the conformists.
