No easy way to deradicalize hate group members, experts say - 2019-08-24
While people might wish for a magic pill or program, there is no easy way to guide someone away from hateful, racist ideologies, deradicalization experts say.
Michael Mitchell, a retired army major and former associate faculty member at Royal Roads University in B.C., says deradicalization is like treating a mental illness. Root causes of the trouble are complex and stem from a person's unique life experiences.
"There's no pill for this," said Mitchell, who studied radicalization in B.C. high schools.
