Simplification of Complex Realities Comes at a Price While Seeking Clarification

Reader comment on item: Augustin de Barruel
in response to reader comment: Reality As Anti-Religion Is Too Simplified

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 16, 2021 at 16:45

For reader Roberta; your contention is well presented and to the point it makes, this observer concurs.
While there may be an attempt to distill all the ills of the world for the sake of determining a means to obtain some kind of peace in an environment of antagonistic and hostile antipathies, religion versus anti-religion appears as a base rationale in these modern times where, in the vein of articulating those passions in this forum due to Islamism bringing the worst of those ills, arguments over religionism remains the base contention.
Your distinction about the variables other religious and non-religious aspects that have complicated the attacks on other world societies as they may have been breached by Islamism provides an interesting perspective worth pursuing; if indeed the world has that much time left for pursuing freedom.
