    True...

    But then maybe we should also ban Oil and nationalism if we're gonna prevent wars?

    So it's ok to have total freedom to create extreme groups, buy as many guns as you like and put a pillow case on your head to express your beliefs - because blaming the group/belief system is just lazy?
    No it's not OK. That's a lazy argument.

    Maybe the situation is more complex? Do you think if Islam suddenly didn't exist all those people would suddenly turn into nice people you see on GBBO?

    People are people, if you indoctrinate them into being lunatics then they'll be lunatics, if you indoctrinate them not to be racist then they won't be racists.

    Are you saying that a certain percentage of human beings are going to be murderous savages regardless of anything?
    Because that's starting to sound a bit like racism...

    I think racism is natural and the default state. Just look at Dawkins' Greenbeard Altruism concept.
