    @lebneni-murtad – “Enlightenment

    – I think the key advance was secularism, or the separation of church and state, and religious freedom and pluralism.  If there is no separation of church and state, it’s illegal to be an atheist, and in effect, it’s illegal to think.  This is a really dangerous and toxic state to be in.  It’s interesting how the Social Justice Warriors are now saying that “diversity of opinion is just white supremacist bullshit“.  Yeah, good luck with that.

    Perhaps it is a defensive reaction to exposure to western culture.

    Mahatma Gandhi was once asked what he thought of Western culture. He answered that it would be a good idea.

    Europe took centuries to get over repressive theocracy.  Do you think it will be centuries with your area, or is there some hopeful reason to think it will be much shorter?

    I think it will take some time, for us to wake up, but no it won’t take centuries but a long time, I think it will take less because of the internet and now it is easier to travel around the world.

    But I wish the US government would stop aiding KSA, and stop buying their oil, and stop selling them weapons, and not waging war on any middle eastern country especially Iran, that would be great.

    And it is time for the western left to wake up and realize that Islam is a horrible religion and against social justice
