We are doi...
We are doing, for example, cutting edge research on the dynamics of radicalization, because detecting violent extremists isn’t enough. We need also to understand them – to understand how seemingly ordinary young men or women can grow up in Canada yet come to reject the Western democratic values that underpin Canadian identity, instead replacing them with the nihilist ideology of al-Qaeda.
Hmm, yeah that’s tough. I wonder if I can just Google this one:
- Estimates that roughly 1⁄5 of drone kills are civilians
- The incarceration rate of Aboriginals in Canada is 30x that of non-Aboriginals and the rate for African Americans in the US is 6x more than Caucasians
- Whitewashing a national symbol as “design by committee”
- Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay, and the torture of an innocentGerman citizen
Enough with the rhetoric of obliviousness. This isn’t a Western security problem, it’s a global equality, justice and welfare problem.
