Religion and the internet. ‘Radicalisation In The Digital Age’, by Marc Weitzmann. It is easier than you might think for an extremist to radicalise a stranger online — to persuade that person to marry them, say, or to join their army in a foreign land; because when we are online we tend to think of our online personae as being not quite real; we take chances, have adventures, with our online personae, and our real-world personae get entailed. “Future converts who begin by searching for ‘real’ Muslims online, in the privacy of their bedrooms, always meet people in the flesh at some point.”
