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.
