Looking for a way out?
It’s not called “the Web” for nothing. The trap works the same way whether you’re a disaffected young white guy or an angry young muslim. As Christian Picciolini points out below, the lures are identity, community and purpose. That’s a combination that few of us can resist. Who would want to? The video at right discusses the online radicalization process, while the videos below speak to us more directly. There is a way out. And you won’t find a single case online of anybody who regrets leaving the politics of hate behind them.
