​"The only thing more dangerous than an idea is a belief. And by dangerous I mean thought provoking. I mean: people might get killed."

There is no doubt in my mind that I agree with this quote. It is saying that beliefs can be the most dangerous thing when it comes to fighting. Beliefs are what set people apart and the reason for all the conflict in the world. Any human being in the world has his own beliefs whether they decide to share them or keep them hidden. An idea is already bad enough because it leads to disagreements. But with a belief, there is something personal, and people stay very true to their beliefs and easily become enraged and offended when people disagree.
