The same can be said about the xenophobic extreme right in Europe:

"Violent extremism is a malevolent version of crowdsourcing. Groups like ISIS and Boko Haram are opportunistic, participatory, agile, adaptable, seductive and real-time. They are toxic, lean startups that must be countered with similar tactics that allow vulnerable populations to participate in a meaningful future from where they sit."
