As 2015 draws to an end, we ponder the introduction of a new synonym for terrorism: conservatism.
Religious conservatism, in particular, is a bunch of men — regardless of colour — shaking an angry fist at the world, who can’t get it up without beating someone down, women for the most part.
It’d be comical if it weren’t true. It’d be hilarious if these men weren’t so numerous, so empowered, and so dangerous. It’d be a relief if they weren’t politicians, police officials and officers, legislators, educators, pastors, padres, imams, and rabbis, or the owners of major multi-national corporations.
Terrorism, in this modern age, is as much a notion, or an idea, as it is an act or deed.
