Heroes come in many different shapes and sizes, here's a hero, his name was Khaled-al-Asaad, an 82 year old scholar of archaeology in Iraq who was murdered by ISIS because he refused to disclose the location of artefacts hidden to prevent them being destroyed or sold to fund this thuggish army and its perverse time-travel experiment (i.e. what's it like living under the most barbaric form of 7th century Islamic theocracy). Unlike most so called "scholars" in his region Khaled was a proper scholar; he had read more than one book.

For any society to progress, there needs to be a separation between religion and state, with religion given only very limited powers.

To put religion in charge means a reversion to barbarism.

CB, quite agree, a proper secular constitution is the only way forward IMO.
