Samson Agonistes is only dangerous in the fact that it accomplished what
Milton wanted: namely the death of "tragic" theatre.  One must remember that
SA is a closet play as well, so its incitement can only go so far.  I think,
however, that a lot of the Enlightenment world would not have minded
terrorism so much.  They are the ones who started so many wars for ideas.
