Down 4 the Count: Radicalization of the ‘Everyman’

The following article recently appeared in The Montreal Gazette.

Contrary to the promise of the headline, it too focuses on the Islamic extremist threat – to Canada, in this case. Is this some sort of sleight of hand or a modification of the Bread and Circuses approach to dealing with a problematic social situation? Why do we continue to demonize the easiest enemy?

The man-cession has provided more than enough motivation for ‘ordinary’ men to become radicalized to the point of utter desperation. Beware the precariat!
