The Lowest Common Denominator

The Lowest Common Denominator

We Americans internalize the information we receive from sources we have come to trust. Once inside us, they form a perception that resits logical argument and appeals to rational thought. Once we are told enough that Islam is a threat, we begin to act in ways that alienates practitioners of the religion. Alienation leads to misunderstanding. Misunderstanding leads to conflict. Conflict leads to hatred. Islam as a threat becomes the self-fulfilling prophesy. It is the same vicious cycle that we have endured within racial debates; the same cycle we endured with the million of illegal immigrants from Ireland, Eastern Europe, and Italy after the turn of the 20th Century; the same cycle we endure with today's immigration debate.

The End of Capitalism? Alex Knight Speaks Out (Part 1)

We can’t pretend we have freedom in this country until “we, the people” have a say in our neighborhoods, towns and cities, in our workplaces, our schools, and our government. This requires that the public actively participate in managing their own affairs, for example through neighborhood councils to have a say in the neighborhood, through labor unions to have a say at work, student unions to have a say at school, and other democratic organizations that give people the power to defend their rights.
