Polly Toynbee, a woman I have communicated with on a couple of occasions concerning her articles, writes a piece closely related to my current reading, and current line of thought. In it she mentions Huntingtons ‘Clash of Civilizations’, and the ideas expressed therein.
I agree with her to a large extent on religion, as I have done in the past when she discussed separation of Church and State in the UK with regard to education.
On this I am a little more hesitant, but I largely agree with her sentiment. Religion is a major factor in many conflicts.
Meanwhile I reserve judgement on her criticism of Huntington. I will discuss this topic at greater length in my upcoming Soapbox section.
