Supreme Odds Against Extremity
By Anthony J. Mountjoy | Sat, 28 Jan 2017 21:00:00 EST
The word radical or extremist gets thrown around a lot these days. Either to smear individuals or diminish impact from broader messages being promoted by those who support any given ideology. I'd suggest its not extremity that makes the Jihadist, its the Jihadist's sense of Supremacy reinforced by a sub-cultural feedback loop... trapped in their bubble. Any person or group that cleaves to self-supremacy will become violent eventually.
Even a childlike believe in soft purple dinosaurs from mars with no direct command to hurt anyone becomes a call to arms when those who come to feel they are, by righteousness or nature; the natural elite and that they are being held back...victimized even...by the rest of us.
They will certainly follow whichever narrative seems to lead “their people” to that supremacy. If it's not great for everyone then it isn't so great for anyone; it's some variant of socialism, anti-productionism, and destroys everything in order to sit on the throne of influence and esteem. The virtue of representation without accountability pays quite well in a globalist framework squeezing the middle.
One could be extremely kind, extremely productive, interesting, useful. However, extreme + supreme and we get an ISIS or a KKK or a Mussolini or a Mao. The physical manifestation might be, in character or colour, related to Islam or Christianity, or Hellenism, or Leninism; but the core path to violence is the same. Supremacy leads one to forget the enemy are men and women just like you. It pushes the thoughts of collateral damage...children...to the back of the mind where one need not concern themselves with such things. It's in god's hands... It's a necessary price... they deserve it...
It's not so difficult to understand where terrorism of almost all kinds comes from. The common evil that exists within any group. That we are better than them, not in merit of ones conduct, but by simple association. Collectivist supremacy gives us things like Communism and Corporatism while religious supremacy gives us 911 and dead doctors; national supremacy gives us Timothy McVeigh and Uni-bomber, and Hitler. Chosen people become Zionists and Statist parasites suck off Capitalist production by placing a yoke on the neck of manufacturers to pay for some form of this in every country on earth. See...not so difficult to understand is it once we're past all the distraction and mislabels?
It's misleading to fixate on the word or concept of extremism. When we ask a stranger which is most important ones nation or ones religion, for example, it is appropriate to not know. Or to consider them give or take equitable, but to suggest one is greater than the other is to flirt with catastrophe. Like asking which is most important...having a mother or a father? Some things are indivisible. Unlike devote believers, corporate sycophants, nationally over-loyal fascists, death and war. This is the result of all forms of supremacy once enough people believe it.
