FOUR murderers who are also at War with Mother Nature, and I am on Mother Nature’s side. What type of human goes to War against Mother Nature?!? Clearly, anyone at War with Mother Nature should not be allowed to own firearms.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased levels of uncertainty and social polarization in our societies, compromising young people’s capacity to envision a positive future and maintain a meaningful sense of purpose in life. Within a positive youth development framework, the present study investigates the associations of a positive future orientation, presence of and search for meaning in life, and support for violent radicalization (VR) in a diverse sample of Canadian college students. In addition, we investigate the moderating role of future orientation in the association between presence of and search for a meaning in life and support for VR.
Snip .. Mounting evidence points to the negative consequences of the pandemic on adolescent and young adults’ mental health (3–8). Simultaneously there has been an upsurge in all forms of violence associated with despair, further polarizing society (9, 10). A recent Canadian study indicates that in 2017 students aged 16–18 were at higher risk of supporting violent radicalization (VR), compared to students aged 19–21 who were at higher risk in 2015 (11).
Snip .. Violent radicalization (VR) is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon (12) defined as a process whereby an individual or a group increases support for violence as a legitimate means to reach a specific (e.g., political, social, and religious) goal (13). Although the association between support for VR and violent action is not linear, population-wide attitudes toward legitimizing some forms of violence may increase social polarization and fuel the emergence of extremist groups, thus providing a narrative to channel despair and rage in vulnerable individuals (14, 15). Schools and colleges are important radicalization vectors and recruitment sites (16).
Snip .. However, we observed some changes in the expected associations between gender, main language, immigrant generation and our outcome. Specifically, in contrast with previous research, men and women have comparable levels of support for VR (38). Transgender and gender-diverse youth emerge as the group at the highest risk of support for VR. This is in line with results of a recent survey conducted during the pandemic that highlighted high levels of support for VR as well as psychological distress among gender minorities (75).

There were five forms of governance that migrated from theory to reality in the 20th Century:Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Nazism and Progressivism.The common denominator among them was unprecedented control and regulation by the State over human activity. It is delusional to think that the Totalitarian impulse expired with the 20th Century. – E. Nuff Said
