Of course, those too are supported by faith based economists. It's always best to borrow and spend now. The future is always better than the present, and so it is cheaper to pay back debt then. And inflate it away over time as a hidden tax, as 'correct' economic policy for managing the money supply.

Isn't it wonderful that a bunch of incompetent faith based economists have set the world on a course for economic destruction? Pass the popcorn. comment by usgoosht on Brazil Government Primary Deficit Moves Farther From Target 12 hours, 32 minutes ago
The problem is Islam itself is radical and 'islamist'. How can it be tamed without removing that from the cult? But, the Koran is inviolate, unalterable word of God. So when it says the duty of Muslims is to "kill, enslave, or convert the unbeliever", there is no changing that.
This was written about Mahmud of Ghazni, by a Muslim historian, about his invasion of Gandhara.
"Maḥmûd utterly ruined the prosperity of the country, and performed there wonderful exploits, by which the Hindus became like atoms of dust scattered in all directions, and like a tale of old in the mouth of the people. Their scattered remains cherish, of course, the most inveterate aversion towards all Muslims."
Another historian describes Mahmud's invasion thusly.
"Fire and sword, havoc and destruction, marked his course everywhere. Gandhar which was styled the Garden of the North was left at his death a weird and desolate waste. Its rich fields and fruitful gardens, together with the canal which watered them (the course of which is still partially traceable in the western part of the plain), had all disappeared. Its numerous stone built cities, monasteries, and topes with their valuable and revered monuments and sculptures, were sacked, fired, razed to the ground, and utterly destroyed as habitations."
Mahmud is a hero to Muslims. His is the second most common name given to male children, after Mohammed.
The acts of ISIS against the Shias and Yazidis are eerily similar to the campaigns of Mahmud. And Mohammed, in his time, against people who rebelled against the tribute he demanded.
Violence by Muslims is not an aberration, but a continuous characteristic of their cult. The only way to end radicalization is to end Islam.
The people who would benefit most from this would be Muslims. But, because they have been brainwashed from birth by their destructive, dysfunctional cult, they cannot see the evil done by it unto them, or even contemplate life without it. Sad.
A more successful method might be to resort to incentives. For every 9/11 or 7/7 perpetrated by Muslims, a tax similar to the Muslim tax on foreign religions is raised. And mosques that nurture such true Muslims are taxed more and more highly.
Islam isn't really a religion in the Western sense, since there is no separation of church and state in Islam. It is as much fascist political institution as oppressive religious cult.
The future of Muslims and the West will be 'interesting'. comment by usgoosht on Dutch Government Clamps Down on Radicalization 12 hours, 36 minutes ago
There should be noise requirements on drones. After 10 feet, 3 meters, they should be less than 80 decibels. comment by usgoosht on U.S. moves toward opening skies for commercial drones Jul 6, 2014 5:28 PM [GMT]
