Randians address Islam threat
The Randian blog NoodleFood has a discussion on what should be done to protect America from Islamic terrorism. The topic is opened by the commenter Madmax. He seems to recognize that there is a problem here that is not addressed by the usual Randian/Objectivist formulae:
… But if this Jihadism gets worse what should the West and America do in our situation? I have serious concerns about continued Muslim immigration in today’s context yet I don’t know how, under Objectivism, the domestic threat from Islam can be addressed.Many commenters reply with their various approaches. One, Sajid, says that Islam is not a threat because when people come to America they drop their religion and become proto-Randian individualists and thus cease to be a problem. Because this happened to him, he evidently believes it will happen with everyone. Sajid also addresses my position on Islam.
