  • Sharpening Contradictions: Why al-Qaeda attacked Satirists in Paris
    • I wonder about whether the western impulse to re-post all Charlie's most satirical cartoons aimed toward Islam is also a galvanizing force that helps the Terrorists' cause. What kind of response is the best antidote to the "sharpening contradictions" strategy?

      Martin Luther King Jr. dealt with the issue of white fear: "A mass movement exercising love and non-violence IS an object lesson in power under discipline, a demonstration, to the white community that if such a movement attained a degree of strength, it would use its power creatively and not vengefully" (King, 1962/3). I am pretty sure that non-violent movements work best to thwart the brutality of a minority, but I would love read an article about the flipped response to what they perpetrated this week.
