“Tucker Carlson interviews Sam Harris about how liberals enable Islamic extremism.”
Interesting [and I think, good] point…
…It’s probably true, that the reason I easily accept the stance of Sam, is because I was raised with a fundamentalist belief in Christianity…It is my life experience, that people absolutely can believe “god is real, and this is what he says”…I know what it’s like, to place stock in the time after you have died…and to believe “it’s going to be so wonderful”.
If you don’t repeat the dogma, and behave as though you believe it…you get punished and/or ostracized…
I have no problem recognizing how violence and terrorism develops, in this type of setting.
Of course, there are other factors…But that kind of a base is like the perfect formula, to build contempt and incompatibility with people who are different.
