«The greatest conflict in the history of the world was not sufficient to stop far-right extremism. Three percent of the world’s population was killed in World War II, and that was not sufficient to eradicate fascism. And you’re going to stop it by kicking Alex Jones off of YouTube? You cannot kill an idea. Not even with the biggest war in the history of mankind. They will always find leaders and they will always find forums. All you can do is craft a better alternative, a more human, more giving, more just alternative, and hope people pick the right path. You cannot save everyone from themselves. You just can’t. So you make your own side more attractive and you do the slow hard work of pulling people into your orbit.»
