My sole Christmas list item this year is more of a prayer. I pray that those people who are responsible for our safety redouble their resolve and take seriously the work of reverse engineering violent radicalism.
We elect people responsible for ensuring public safety. What better way for them to do that work than to take what we know about how violent radicals are made, and then deconstruct that process and reverse it? Remove the reasons that a young person would want to take violent action against others, and stop the problem at its roots.
We are counting on you.
