Easter Long Weekend Four Horsemen of the Trigger Warningocalypse Spectacular, Part Two: Terrorism

Day 79. Word count withheld.

Today I’m going to talk about militant extremism and radicalism; acts of terrorism; mass murders; suicide bombings; the cultural and historical and religious impetus behind these acts; the self-feeding cycle of violence and vengeance; the concept of freedom as relates to cultural self-expression as well as the formation of laws; racism / xenophobia / bigotry; the political benefits of keeping a population ignorant, afraid and hate-filled; and what the heck, gay rights as well. Also cultural and political isolationism, and building walls across borders to keep the bad people out, or possibly in.

Just kidding. It’s Saturday, go and do something enjoyable.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/
