I read a wonderful book by Timothy Snyder called 'On Tyranny' today. It examines the ways that people seeking to take complete power (tyrants) manipulate communities and populations to meet their own needs. In the current politcal climate that encourages an 'us and them' mentality. That encourages people to rail against 'the other', we need to be vigilant and double down on understanding, empathy and communication. "Extremism certainly sounds bad, and governments often try to make it sound worse by using the word 'terrorism' in the same sentence. But the word has little meaning. There is no doctrine called 'extremism'. When tyrants speak of 'extremists', they just mean people who are not in the mainstream - as the tyrants themselves are defining the mainstream at that particular moment." Highly Recommend.
