Faith and Violence (Irrational Disagreements)
Here is a video examining the connection between faith and violence, and how when one is in an irrational disagreement, one can only resort to irrational persuasion.

To Whom It May Concern,
I do not believe that my video is not advertiser-friendly. Please allow me to make my case that the video follows the guidelines set down by YouTube.
As I understand it, below are the advertiser friendly guidelines set
down by YouTube:
“Content that is considered “not advertiser-friendly” includes, but is
not limited to:
[1.] Sexually suggestive content, including partial nudity and sexual humor
[2.] Violence, including display of serious injury and events related
to violent extremism
[3.] Inappropriate language, including harassment, profanity and vulgar language
[4.] Promotion of drugs and regulated substances, including selling,
use and abuse of such items
[5.] Controversial or sensitive subjects and events, including
subjects related to war, political conflicts, natural disasters and
tragedies, even if graphic imagery is not shown.”
My Video “Faith and Violence (Irrational Disagreements) surely does not fit into categories 1, 3, or 4, and I am confident that these were not the reasons that it was flagged. If I am mistaken, I am sure that a manual viewing of the video will dispel such notions.
However, based solely on the title and description of the video (and
date of publication), I can see how a system might flag it as falling
under either category 2 or 5. Therefore, please allow me to defend
why it does not. The entire video consists in only words on a screen. There are no images, pictures or representations at all, let alone violent ones. The nine eleven attacks are referenced briefly as the impetus for the creation of the video, but the philosophical concepts of faith and violence are the central topics. The video is a philosophical argument about faith and violence in the abstract, it is more about epistemology, logic, and the nature of debate than it is about any particular event. The only actual examples of that are used are discussions of protests of gay marriage and blocking or insulting others on social media.
If your guidelines are that this event cannot be referenced in any way in videos I will admit that the video does wish everyone a good day of remembrance, once at the start and once at the end, and by such guidelines the video could be disqualified. However, since the
majority of the video deals with the more general philosophical ideas of faith and violence, and the event is acknowledged as much because the video was published on the day than anything else, I humbly request that you strongly consider approving this video for monetization. Thank you for taking the time to read this letter
