I read of a lesbian wedding, yeah. I'd assume this happened multiple times as Islam is even more open to fractious interpretation than Catholicism as it tends slightly more toward Praxis than Dogma when compared to the later.
Europe has less terrorism now than during the extreme left and IRA period coupled with some extreme-right false flag actions.
The axiological neutrality of capitalism is bullshit? It is not some objective, value-free way of handling the economic side but a consequence of past European problematics filled with hidden value judgments? Basically it is so present nowadays (there is no alternative) it becomes invisible, we don't question its premises but they still exist. This is why stuff like tv debates are so fucking stupid, we present hegemonic philosophies already swallowed whole and normalized...
Beyond "pissing off some allies" the US president is part of a system with its rules but also its own logic, finding some sort of executive order way to deport Jews to Cuba wouldn't really prove "it can be done" unless you understand the praxis of various moving parts of the US government. The way foreign affairs are handled, with its integration within a tradition of post WWII diplomacy (the new world order of the Bretton woods conference but also the mentality in...
Is that a Donald Trump quote?
I certainly haven't broadened the "scope" you were discussing (West vs Islam in a clash of civilization) as what I discuss is certainly not based on that. Maybe I shouldn't even have used ISIS as an example and concentrated on other groups to get the point across. Capitalism is a universalist philosophy (well it came from European culture and its universalist tradition) and has in its scope the unlimited, this explains both why (social) conservatives are not as adapted to...
Another interesting example is the arrival of Poles in France, the discourse is remarkably similar to the one concerning North-Africans (can't adapt due to culture, ghetto etc) and public discourse at the time even held their Catholicism against them (sure they're Catholics but their Catholicism is different).
Pio properly answered you but to be honest you need to read this:
It isn't. The new realities in question are the capabilities of organizations that aren't nation states (or aspiring to) in strongly affecting nation states (think of Isis or Google) and the lack of adaptation of our ways of thinking to this somewhat new reality. You can see it with people constantly thinking of Laws and social initiatives as being about restricting government possible tyranny but with no acknowledgment of corporation power or with people discussing...
It would need to be part of a broader regime of sanctions and diplomatic initiatives, which would be absurd in the case being discussed because many of the countries I'd assume would be identified as full of the evil Muslins are currently dominated by governments allied with the USA. Once again conflation of a religious group or some citizens with govs of nation states lead to stupid dumbasses saying stupid dumbasses shit. An amusing case of old ideology crashing into new...
