Michael K. Spencer,

To the contrary, social media has a very strong “Emotional ROI.”

Read the 140-character-count tweets of religious exultation, and watch the video clips of public exhilaration , because it is clear that there is a global pilgrimage, not to a physical destination of spiritual significance, but to a borderless Nowhere Land; an uncharted place of darkness and vapor, whose lifeblood is insanity; and whose personality, if we were to try to give voice to this nonstop deluge of words and sinister thoughts, would cripple the human brain with a devastating stroke, or induce indefinite catatonia or cause instant death — unless a specific group of people, with a deliberate narrowness of mind and a purposeful repetition of a few satanic verses, were to tune in by tuning out; rejecting all pleas for nonviolence and reason, so they could commit mass murder through mass suicide; commemorating, in advance, their jihadist campaign against the West, and celebrating their forthcoming entry into an eternal orgy.

For ISIS and al-Qaeda, social media is the ultimate recruitment tool.

Now, while you may derive little psychological comfort from this medium (excluding Medium), we must nonetheless defeat the spread of a poisonous ideology that reveres death and hates life.

Remember: “You must look at facts, because they look at you.”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
