in response to reader comment: Formal/Informal Education

Submitted by donvan (United States), Jan 7, 2008 at 10:06

However, the fact that one has internalized and self identifies with a mythology which distains the intellect, and which simultaniously insists on privileged status based on that internalization and identification , negates the historical process of assimilation of groups into the Western culture, which, contrary to the dogma of the mythologists of "Islam", is Christian in philosophy.

The notion that "Informal education" can mollify the intrinsic hostility and mendacity of a disordered mythology is overly optomistic at best. The affect that an internalized mythology of such destructive dogma has on the human person cannot be overestimated. If the individual has internalized the dogma to the extent of "Becoming " a "Muslim", then one is justified in expecting particular behaviors.

These behaviors can and do lead to personality disorders consistant with other disorders such as PTSD, and others. Muslim Personality Disorder with symptomology of suicidal/homicidal ideation, irrational thoughts, hostility resulting in paranoia of the "Other", grandious notions of world conquest are common, wide spread, and represent a clear and present danger to other "Muslims" and unaffected persons as well.
