Out in paperback in the US next month: Them: Adventures With Extremists by the excellent Jon Ronson.
One thing you quickly learn about them is that they really don’t like being called extremists. In fact they often tell me that we are the real extremists. They say that the Western liberal cosmopolitan establishment is itself a fanatical, depraved belief system. I like it when they say this because it makes me feel as if I have a belief system.
Extract here. Absolutely golden.
