The light of life

The real fanatics
We see fanatics as some crazed people who will do whatever it takes to further their cause, yet we have placed the worst of them at the centre of our societies.
Political suppression and real freedom
Much of the world is not really free to choose what sort of society they want, despite experimentation with radically different politico-economic systems.
