FYI, Leo, "fight" and "extremism" are incompatible...

Sounded more depressing than encouraging. We see the trends... and should fight against them. The natural bent however favours extremism.

This could be that it is a monday morning and I have not had enough coffee yet, but how do you arrive at this? If I fight fire I do not become a fire, If I fight cancer I don't become a cancer. I am not grasping how you can say that by fighting extremism you become an extremist yourself.

RE: A global culture to fight extremism
Believe I've said this before. You can never allow a bully to operate under the assumption that he is the only one willing to do harm.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
