Disembanish

[ #5171 ]
Dear Log,

Hm. I've been thinking about this article for a while...

«The current success of rightwing scaremongering should at least force us to confront the problems of immigration. Islamism is a serious issue, because it allows confused youths to identify with a worldwide brotherhood, with its own ethics and goals. It gives them something to believe in. And one of the reasons some do so readily is that modern, secular, liberal society has little to offer in its place. The whole point of our disenchanted society is that we have more or less banished faith. This does not cause widespread anguish among the mainstream of young Europeans, but for people who feel trapped between conservative immigrant parents and a bewildering society in which they feel barely accepted, it can.»

--"When cultures clash in a climate of fear"

I can't tell whether this is brilliant/obvious analysis, or just aimless "more postmodern than thou" posturing. Hell, maybe it's both.
