You are stereotyping. If I happened to be born Muslim I would still be free to be me. You judge ppl by an arbitrary, chance characteristic and cherry-pick data to confirm your arbitrary prejudices. For shame.

Actually no, you wouldn't. You'd have have their ideological drivel forcefed to you since birth. And even if you survive the brainwashing, a large portion of islamists will have you killed for being born a muslim and not following islam. Lastly, those who are willing risk their lives and abandon islam anyway are so few that it's just not worth combing through all the muslims in order to find them, since islam allows lying to further its purposes.

I've had neoliberal drivel driven into me since birth, but I self-identify as non-neoliberal. Are you saying neoliberalism is less powerful a religion than Islam?

Do their followers segregate into communities where force is used to ensure that is the only point of view that is allowed? Is death the punishment for leaving neoliberalism?

From what I've seen the answer to both is no. Of course it is weaker in terms of how strong the indoctrination and entrapment of those who were born under it.

My brother accepted neoliberal indoctrination to a greater degree than I. He committed suicide at age 49, three years ago. I blame neoliberalism. He felt trapped in his spiritually-destroying job; his decent corporate accountant salary was not enough to satisfy his philosophical yearnings.

Neoliberalism kills. Neoliberalism is part of what Islamnis fighting against. When the twin towers came down I laughed (we didn't yet know it was Islamic terrorists). To me, neoliberals are scarier than Muslims. By far!

A personal anecdote where someone decided to stick to an ideal, which as far as I know nobody forces you to follow, decides to kill himself, again his own choice, is incomparable to the idea that you are forced to follow an ideal and that if you do not stick to it someone else comes in and tries to kill you.

Neoliberalism is cult-like. Economists are high priests, affirming through math incantations the divine rights of markets. If you challenge neoliberalism, they turn you into Venezuela. Neoliberalism is the real threat, my deluded friend.

Oh boy this is a good one. Math incantations? Divine rights of markets?

And the big one "they turn you into Venezuela". How is that their fault that it got run into the ground by commies? Besides being lenient enough to let them take over in the first place.

Trump is holding excess world food production over their heads, saying "dance to my tune". This is not about efficient allocation; this is about starving out rebels like Assad in Syria.

Your argument against it is us not giving Venezuela free shit?

Why are they in need of handouts in the first place?

Because money markets devalue their IOUs. When the same arbitrary emotional devaluation occurred with mortgage-backed securities, the Fed printed trillions. Venezuela is being arbitrarily punished. By arbitrary, I mean it could easily go another way. This is about human dominance games, not about efficient allocation of resources.

well said. Unwarranted kindness is a social cancer that has allowed the deaths of whites at the hands of others for too long. What did people expect to happen when people get marginalized and their voices silenced?
