This is important

Alan Johnson's address to a Labour Party Conference Fringe event.

Ignore the jibber jabber like:

First, having the will and the resolution to promote that order and that society as non-negotiable normative ends. So enough with the apologetics for them and the self-hatred for us.

Just try to wade through it. This is the stuff wherein liberals (in the American leftist sense) and classical liberals need to get their act together and fight not just violence of extremist Islamism, but the ideas, too. You know, the old hearts and minds thing.

The only way to win the idea war is with better ideas. Guns cannot regulate ideas, they can only kill people.

What ever else the guy said, "its the ideas" is correct. I don't think the stupid helps.
