Ask Hoffer

Via LGF, Slate asks "Why are so many jihadists converts to Islam?"

I'm getting ready for my classes, and given that I've got to read Sayyid Qutb's "Basic Principles of Islamic Worldview", I figured I'd reread Eric Hoffer. So I  reordered a copy of Eric Hoffer's True Believer as an innoculant.

Short Hoffer: they're nutters.

Long Hoffer; they are broken inside.
