Radicalization, a word used so frequently in the news that we’ve become desensitized to it. It’s something that happens to Muslim youngsters, we’re told on a daily basis. They are isolated and immersed into radical views by persons they respect and look up to. In the end they develop a radical world view that all but consumes them. That could never happen to us, we’re cultured and have a wide view on the world, right? Wrong. In a world were all news outlets are continuously looking for the next sensational headline, that one-liner that gets the most clicks, we are collectively going through the process of radicalization. Muslims are bad. Electric cars are good. Everything is either black or white, 0 or 1. We’re losing the art of civilized and constructive discussion. I do miss grey.
