On the similarities between liberalism and militant Islam…
One of the reasons that leftists are nonplussed by militant Islam may be the idea -- I mean look at what it is. Especially if you go all the way to Sharia. It’s an all-encompassing, intrusive, uniform, mandatory, instruction manual detailing how everybody should dress, how everybody should eat, how everybody should live, how everybody should work, how everybody should play, and, what to worship. Now doesn’t that sound like liberalism? Philosophically, doesn’t it sound like liberalism.
