On the broader implications of the Islamic protests…

We have this notion that it is in the application of an idea or concept that the concept itself failed us. Stalinism for example is often quoted as a failed application of the ideas of the time – Communism. The recent Islamic protests against a video on YouTube are also explained away by the “true believers” by claiming that the protesters are not practicing their religion appropriately and that the notions, ideas and concepts of Islam are true etc (“these extremist idiots don’t know the true meaning of Islam…” etc).

Should we not criticize the propensity of an idea or a concept to fail so miserably in practice? I think if we can do that, if we can truly understand that often the idea or concept that may be lauded by many inherently contains enough leeway (or the seeds thereof) to be practiced to a disastrous end then perhaps we can get somewhere and spot the dangerous and disastrous ideas early on.

  1. The concept of a youngster snoring is really a small
    odd for many folks to obtain their thoughts around. We typically think of a middle aged individual in relation
    to this problem, but it is attainable for your youngster to have
    it too. That does not necessarily imply they’ve a problem (unless they’ve some sort of sleep apnea), but a lot of parents
    aren’t actually confident what they are able to do about it. Not just is there very small data on this type of difficulty, there is even much less on the topic for the youth. I thought I could show you how kid snoring could be eliminated within a very short time frame.
