The roots of Islamic extremism and white nationalism are eerily similar. Unemployed and emasculated males attracted to a traditional worldview that denigrates women and homosexuality while also elevating one religious/racial worldview over another. Coincidentally a worldview that rejects a technologically connected global consumer culture. How to mitigate against both?
A new public works jobs program that intentionally hires unemployed males to rebuild their community and get reconnected to it. Make sure these units are racially integrated and also have a decent mix of LGBT and women serving in the unit as well as in positions of authority. We can bring together people from different regions of the country as well. The integration of the military was one of the single most effective ways to take down racial barriers and we now have women and LGBT serving openly and even in command. A revived CCC could be a civilian alternative to the solidarity the military creates. Also a way to bring infrastructure costs substantially down. Seems like a win-win for the country-any dissenters?
