Is your neighbor an Enginerrorist?
Grandpa Milo comments on a new sociology paper that connects ''a engineering mindset'' and a predisposition towards Islamic terrorism. You know this will be awesome, right?
By: Grandpa Milo
Let me tell you, I was always a bit suspicious about my neighbor. He's an engineer. And everybody knows those sons of bitches are just crazy about radical Islam, right? I mean, after all, they do have an engineering mindset, after all.
I'll call Homeland security right away; he might be plotting to build a gigantic laser and use it against Hawaii.
He is an engineer, and engineers build stuff. Deadly stuff!
Now, kiddies, I didn't read this fantastic new paper that is the talk of the town, but I can tell you, the idea is so preposterous that I wonder why people just don't laugh at this. Then I remember, they're idiots.
Let's take a closer look, shall we?
The authors pose the hypothesis that "engineers have a 'mindset' that makes them a particularly good match for Islamism," which becomes explosive when fused by the repression and vigorous radicalization triggered by the social conditions they endured in Islamic countries.
Yes, those Islamic countries sure brainwash everybody long and hard, don't they. The grate sociologist himself Jerry Falwell often pointed that out. Also, the repressed always willingly and by free choice start to fight for the very thing that is oppressing them, right? Take The American Revolution, for example.
But, let's not forget about that evil mindset.
Whether American, Canadian or Islamic, they pointed out that a disproportionate share of engineers seem to have a mindset that makes them open to the quintessential right-wing features of "monism" (why argue where there is one best solution) and by "simplism" (if only people were rational, remedies would be simple).
Sure, those are the traits of terrorists, no question about it.
So, you can be American, Canadian, black, white, Islamic or even Chinese - the bottom line is:
If you love one best solution, rational people, insurgent videos and Bin Laden - you're an Enginerrorist.
The evil Enginerrorist are among us, people. Keep an eye out.
