Just finished re-reading the chapter on "Anti-Hindu Laws in Goa" from "The Goa Inquisition". I suppose it was @by2kaafi sir who once said

Sticks - Destroy temples, prevent their upkeep. Drive out influential Hindus. Make it difficult for Hindus to lead a normal life. And snatch away orphans. Making women forcefully listen to Christian doctrine

From "Skin in the Game"
Mediocristan: Domain where the effects of a random event are contained, and don't have an impact on the System.

Extremistan: Domain where effects of random event impact other entities in the system, & in worst case bring about ruin of the entire system. Examples for Mediocristan:Deaths due to drowning in the Bathtub, crossing roads. Examples for Extremistan: Deaths due to Epidemic Disease, Terrorism.
Thus while % of people dying due to drowing in Bathtubs might be higher than % of people dying due to Ebola, the latter is risker
