Radicalization isn't this yes-or-no choice. It's a pcsreos, during which people have questions — about ideology, religion, the living conditions. And they're coming online for answers, which is an opportunity to reach them.

Original Text

Radicalization isn't this yes-or-no choice. It's a process, during which people have questions — about ideology, religion, the living conditions. And they're coming online for answers, which is an opportunity to reach them. And there are videos online from people who have answers — defectors, for example, telling the story of their journey into and out of violence; stories like the one from that man I met in the Iraqi prison. There are locals who've uploaded cell phone footage of what life is really like in the caliphate under ISIS's rule. There are clerics who are sharing peaceful interpretations of Islam. But you know what? These people don't generally have the marketing prowess of ISIS. They risk their lives to speak up and confront terrorist propaganda, and then they tragically don't reach the people who most need to hear from them. And we wanted to see if technology could change that.
