Those of us who have exited The Matrix are concerned that there are no checks on Washington’s use of nuclear weapons in the interest of US hegemony over the world.
You are not alone in asking that question: How is it possible that we can be so antagonistic towards conservative traditional Christianity and yet so accepting Islam?
I think we have to understand that there has been a revolution in the US and the West in general. An ideological revolution for neoliberalism.
Neoliberalism is dedicated to scientific rationalism, that's neoliberal conception of life: science, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, that’s it. Everything else is the matter of your own personal opinion. When that began to make its way into our culture and policy, in the 1960-s in particular, it gave rights to something called "emancipatory politics". The emancipation has to be freedom or liberation.
