What do you think are the next steps towards trying to soften Islam enough so that we can head towards global secularism rather than having these insulated theocracies?

I have a website here which discusses the issues and terminology surrounding religion and atheism. It's hopefully user friendly to all.

Mine is "Dreaming", sounds a bit fucked up to begin with but has an absolutely magical harmony at the end with the singing/riffs, it's just fantastic.

I also like all the silly songs. Songs such as "fuck the system" :

Good question, I think the media , celebrities , academics should at least talk to great thinkers who want to reform Islam or better yet encourage them like Imam Tawhidi, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Majid Nawaz, Wafaa Sultan, Irshad Manji.
Universities should host debates, lectures, panel discussions, seminars that have no barriers in discussing Islam without labeling lecturers as Islamphobes.
The US government must cut all aid and support to Islamic countries especially KSA.

In what ways do you think Hollywood is brainwashing people?

Whoo... all great suggestions.

I don't see that last one happening in this administration, though.
