    Freedom of thought is regarded as freedom of heresy? If cake-box hat-head is really convinced that heretics should be beheaded to prevent the spread of their “insanity”, then he why is he engaging in discussion, instead of taking a sword to cut off his opponent’s head? He is obviously engaging in heresy by even discussing the matter, so he should be cutting off his own head.

    There is something about the person who doesn’t need to adorn his head, because his thoughts are sufficiently beauteous in themselves.

    The ones most vocal about removing heads are rarely the same ones who are willing or capable of doing it.

    I don’t know the background on this show or the guests, however, supposing for the sake of argument that this example represents an average sample point in the domain of Islamic mind-space, I’d say that the seed for rationality in an Islamic mind is certainly there, however, it is badly outnumbered and under constant threat of death from the old guard. If Western leaders were serious about an actual winnable war against these dark-age bastards they’d realize the primary battlefield is the mind-space of the young minds in the show’s audience and not the conventional battlefield with tanks, jets, and infantry as such. Of course, for that to happen Western leaders first must have actual minds.

    A new system won’t flourish while the old leaders are still strong (Machiavelli was right). Did you see how the voting percentages altered depending on the speaker? That said, and although they’re easily manipulated, the voters *are* holding the reins.

    I think Dan’s tactic on Youtube is good. He keeps his ideas fairly basic, while being entertaining as well as very accessible. The young blokes like his sense of humour, respectful manner, novel ideas, as well as the little tickles of personal attention that he gives them. And he doesn’t scare them off by leaping into the deep end, but takes things very slowly. I think he’s doing a great job of “educating the voters”.
