Tolerating Intolerance

This chapter summarizes the preceding discussions and presents some final thoughts. It argues that extremists pose a threat to individuals and the larger society. It suggests three viable alternatives to combating the dangers posed by extremism: limiting the free speech of extremist inciters; enhancing and broadening educational opportunities for those living in extremist cultures; and engaging in dialogue with extremists. There is also a fourth alternative that is morally unconscionable and legally deeply troubling: ignoring the threat and hoping for the best.
