The Vanishing Muslim Individual
The concluding chapter assumes that it is possible to dismantle the trifecta of coercion, and if we’re going to save the individuality that our rapidly developing world will so desperately need in order to escape fascism, violence, and inequality, we have to alleviate the pressures that perfect that trifecta. Only an inclusive “we” can lead to higher levels of integration without destroying the individual. Europe has to transgress the religious, philosophical, cultural, and political boundaries that are now paradoxically trapping it due to political reasons that have more to do with exclusion than inclusion. Europe can save the democratic state through a new civilizing process that gives the political and scientific means for the emergence of a modern European Islam that fits harmoniously with the grand secular design of Europe while maintaining its faith.
