Fighting back against Trumpism, globalism and dangerous ideologies (without making things worse)

The online world has been heating up for quite some time now. It seems we are becoming more and more polarised in belief and opinion, in the political, social and religious frameworks arenas. It is all too easy for discussion to turn to argument to turn to outright personal attack. We single out people like Donald Trump, Jordan Peterson and "social justice warriors" (for example) and call them all manner of names, simplifying their world views into simple and concise labels, which makes it easy to then castigate the entirety of who they are. Issues and ideologies are now often reduced to and identified by names of well-known people within public discourse. Anyone who subscribes to even just

Why are We Christian's so Quick to Judge?

Book Review: Letters to a Young Contrarian by Christopher Hitchens

Christopher Hitchens (d. 2011) was a public intellectual known for his outspoken views on religion and politics and his often confrontational means of communication.
