The Week In Review: HuffPost Bloggers Bravely Commit Sociology
This week, the debate raged on over the "root causes" of terrorism. On CBC's Power & Politics, Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre took a literalist approach, declaring the root causes of terrorism to be terrorists. On HuffPost, the analysis ran a little deeper, with many suggested causes, including oppressive foreign policy. "The root cause [of terrorism] is only depravity," wrote one blogger, Lauryn Oates. "The line between seeking to understand this depravity, and seeking to justify it, is fine and must be tread upon with care." Whatever one's perspective, that's advice worth heeding.
