What is your response to this article about Boko Haram in Nigeria?
1 Answer | Add Yours
My response to this is that it shows how important it is to have a good governmental system that can make people feel like they have an equal share in a country. In Nigeria, the power of Boko Haram seems to be driven in part by the fact that the government is corrupt and can at times be brutal. When such a situation exists, people are likely to want to put their faith in their "own kind" rather than seeing themselves as part of a larger country. This leads to this sort of "us against them" violence.
