Does Islam Promote Terror? | Clarissa’s Blog
Oh, wow, I always thought it was modernity itself that schematized identities. I really do still think so, although what we may have is a lot of moderns who are not so well-developed in their intellects, who schematize as a short cut. I have always considered that my difference from these types was my inability or reluctance to presume to know people on the basis of categorization. I was unable to meet people and start with an abstraction about who they were and then work to flesh out an existing notion.
Maybe most moderns really haven’t caught up with the full potential of modernity. It is likely that this full potential is threatening to many people brought up within modernity itself, since an embrace of over-certainty often occurs in the face of a fearful unknown.
