Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
So the best counter to consumerism and perceived Islamic barbarism (some of which is real, some of which is a mirage) is to encourage (Judeo-)Christian [1] barbarism? That does not strike me as an exceptionally wise move. To use a polite turn of phrase.

[1] The term 'Judeo-Christian' is in itself an interesting construct, but I'll defer a discussion of the etymology and political use of that term to someone more knowledgeable about the subject than I (and possibly another diary where it would be less of a threadjack).

Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
