Michael Stuart Kelly Posted April 13, 2008 Share Posted April 13, 2008 Indoctrination of children does count for something. For a simple example, there are about 100,000,000 Muslims who are either radical Islamists or highly supportive of them. Each single individual in that group is convinced he is virtuous, even when acts of terrorism are involved. So we cannot fight them as if they had criminal mentalities. A criminal knows he is doing wrong.And there is a small number of radical Objectivists who, in a similar disconnection from reality, think the other 1,400,000,000 Muslims are crazed Islamists... (oops... couldn't resist... I was discussing indoctrination from childhood... )Joking aside, I wonder how those who like to oversimplify NIOF explain—in terms of NIOF—how Nazism can be outlawed as an intellectual movement.Apropos, I personally think the work of cult victim de-programmers is fascinating. This is an area where the lines get badly blurred.Michael Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
