In all of human history, every time anyone has waged a war on science, science has won. — David Rothkopf

It's important to remember that for ISIL, the carnage is a means to an end. The goal of its few but painful attacks is to weaken faith in open societies' ability to protect their citizens, undermine their democratic principles, and thus push them into more closely resembling the theocratic surveillance state ISIL wants to build. That's not a war the West, or any democracy, can afford to lose.
— Michael Coren
