– While CVE is fashionable, “countering” violent extremism puts us in a reactive posture that responds to extremist agendas. We need to get out ahead of those agendas, be active instead of re-active, and set our own agenda. At Narrative Strategies, we question the proposition that we can “counter” violent extremism without creating second and third order repercussions. So, we are not focused on countering extremism, we are focused on eradicating violent extremism by making it obsolete.
