I originally wasn't sure whether to post this one here or in Science Faction, but it's definitely more about the politics of science than it is about science per se.

^ yes, she tells it true.

And on the same theme:
'ISIL Is Weak' by Waleed Aly for The Project

The horror in France has us talking at least.
We can but hope that more than the very few are listening this time.

I found this to be a long but readable backgrounder on ISIS.

Very stirring. I doubt the BBC would let anyone get away with calling ISIS "bastards". :rolleyes: Good on him.

Alas, I feel there will be more than one negative outcome from these attacks. I see these attacks being unashamedly used by national governments as justification to further curtail our freedoms and rights.

You can't fight hate with hate. We fight tyranny with freedom and fight hatred with love. I'd die on my feet before I lived on my knees, either under government in the name of "safety" or under ISIS in the name of "religion".

And yes, I fear you are right Storm. All the more reason to publish voices of reason

Well said. Especially those last two paragraphs.

I tried to explain a similar concept to a self-described "socialist" and "Corbynista" that I work with and he just couldn't comprehend the idea of doing something for yourself rather than advocating a politician do it.

*Sigh.* We live in a world where everybody has a right and nobody has a responsibility. It's a path into the woods and we're getting further off the trail.

...
in a capitalist system, it also becomes economical to feed into everyone’s insecurities, their vices and vulnerabilities, to promote their worst fears and constantly remind them of their shortcomings and failures. It becomes profitable to set new and unrealistic standards, to generate a culture of comparison and inferiority. Because people who constantly feel inferior make the best customers.
