Stopping Radical Religion groups

Radical religions are groups that hold a set of delusions of reality strongly, and these group of delusions are passed down from antiquity as a set of memes. They are taught, and the true believer never questions the validity, the origin, and especially not the truth behind the memes.

For those of you that are familiar with memes: A meme (/ˈmiːm/ meem) is "an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture".  These things infect healthy minds like chain letters of old. 

People who have never been taught to verify beliefs can hold these concepts so strongly that they are willing to die for and to kill to propagate the concepts.  Dieing for a concept is not an issue as long as that concept has value, like freedom, truth, justice, home or country, but religion, not so much. Protection of self or the values we have, truth, freedom, justice are worthwhile, but to be willing to kill for a concept is just stupid, and has no value. In other words, to kill of a religion is just nuts, as religions are just a set of delusions.

Anyone who is willing to kill for there religion are radicals and dangerous, and should be sent to a penal island or to where they came from. I would vote that we set up a penal on Axel Hieberg Island, along the east coast, about 1/4 of the way north from the south end. Give them pick and spades to dig out some pits, Sea cans containers to bury in for shelter, and they will need to be packed in to stay warm, muzzle loading bunks, and not much food or fuel. They could have a choice, leave for where they came from or the Axel Hieberg Hilton. Oh, well, there is not the political will to address the problem, or to identify the problem. If the government did, they would realize that any true believe can be weaponized. Puncturing the delusion wall and exposing the truth that we are what we think is the inoculation against weaponization of any human. The old Roman Stoics learned this from the Greek Stoics, and the system of stoic thought survives to this day, but does anybody care?

I come down to we have control of our own beliefs. Once we learn that and to adjust our beliefs, and some thing are up to us and some are not, we are off to the races.
