That's interesting. Which ones?

I'm not being confrontational here. I'd value your input. If I have been misleading I'd genuinely like to know so that I don't make the same mistakes again (And can correct, or apologise for the ones that are already out there).


Really, the only one I would quibble with would the role of religion as a factor in crime. Religion is a factor, perhaps a main one. But I am not sure I would agree it is the causative factor. At least not in and of itself.

I am not saying you are wrong or anything on that comparison, it just seems incomplete to me.

Perhaps there is more and better data than I know about but it can be hard to compare countries in such ways. Just like it is tricky to compare the impact of one policy choice. They do not exist in isolation.

Is it religion, economics etc. These things are so tied up with one another that it is tricky to make a definitive statement. At least in my mind.

I totally agree that it has a role. I just think it is tricky to figure out if it is THE cause. It is an important one. If I read you wrong than I apologize.
