Sensible people are discouraged from thinking about the root causes of Islamic terrorism by mainstream media and academia. (AKA SJW's)

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414113/actual-root-causes-islamic-terrorism-ira-straus

Osama Bin Laden was a well to do man from a well to do family who was radicalized.

It is an interesting hypothesis. And men (and women) can be motivated by sex. However it is not a motivation for every man, in fact probably not even the majority of men would jihad for sex. Should we take a poll?

It's not a conscious drive just like the drive to chase girls is not an intellectual formula. Men are just compelled to do it. Men are compelled to act out violently because for 5 prior generations, that is what worked and that is why he exists. Success literally breeds true.

PeopleUnited says

As far as Islam's reason for conquering the world, it is bigger than sex. Sex is actually pretty easy to acquire, it isn't like women don't like it.

Well strictly speaking we're talking about reproductive success and not just sex but it's also relative to the rest of the population. Islam wants to conquer the world because they want to cover it with their children. They see the riches of the West and correctly ascertain that with those riches, even a modest middle class income, they would have no problem laying the babes that surround them in the desert or wherever. Also they get four! It's a mirage since the women in such a culture have their own agenda, as we've seen with the disgusting excesses of feminism, but they can't know that. All they know is that $35,000 a year in an Afghanistan village makes you the richest man in town and all the women will flock to you.

Also when you say sex is pretty easy to acquire, you should be aware that this only applies to prostitution. A wife is nearly impossible to acquire as are children. Also you need to feed them. We don't see it in the United States but talk to one of the billions of humans living on a few dollars a day and you will see they have a very different view of the world than you do.

It has degenerated to cult and like any cult, it is partially deviod of reality. Yes, afterlife is the carrot and it contain many things promised, sex being one of them, it is no different than any cult.

This also is an interesting hypothesis. Put in other words, you are saying that the culture of the Middle East (which is dominated by Islam) literally breeds violent extremists. If that is true, and the Islamic immigrants don't reject their old culture but instead propagate and practice it in Europe and America, then we can expect increasing acts of terror propagated by immigrants in the Western world.

iwog says

"Islam wants to conquer the world because they want to cover it with their children."

Which is another way of saying that Islam is a theocracy which seeks to usurp control over every society on the planet. It is not a peaceful religion. It is an Army with conquest in mind.

Not just prostitution. The "dating" scene as well. If you are a decent looking male with any game you will find it hard not to get laid. In fact, if your game is good enough, looks don't hardly even matter.

This is so true. The Islamic terrorist leaders are a lot like David Koresh or other cult leaders who use their proselytes for wealth, sex, etc... And it is primarily their cult followers who put their lives at risk or literally give their lives to further the cult leaders interests.

The people who start or control religions don't actually believe in them. They only believe in the usefulness of religion to get idiots to sacrifice their lives and wealth for you. All religions are scams. Some more transparently so then others, but all are scams.

Cept that's not true in 3rd world nations where the males must compete with an idealized version of white men displayed through global media. In most countries, less than 50% of the population EVER get married and a very large percentage of marriages end in divorce, separation, or death. In fact marriage throughout the world is dying. We're nearing the end game for a species-level super-cycle.

I don't mean to imply that sex is being limited by this trend, in fact it's a free-for-all for beautiful women and rich men. I know most Americans don't have a passport however in Europe, Australia, Canada, Japan, and Korea, sex vacations are bi-annual and getting laid is simply a matter of getting 50 girls interested and picking a few off the tree. The catch is you need to travel to Eastern Europe, Asia, Africa, or Latin America. It's sexual arbitrage and I have a pretty good idea that it's causing the rapid decline of marriage everywhere.

We've only started bitching about terrorism since 2000.

Yes after we lost Russia as boogeymen to make our people fearful and continue the war industry, and feed our younger generations into the green machines.

The war industry arose from the slavery which led to America's civil war and then grew by backing Hitler with his slave camps, all the time looking for a way to convert Americans to slavery again.

Why do you think our wages are trending towards zero for decades now for everything except the skill of betrayal?

Because the war industry thinks you will sell out the future generations for a few more bucks right now.

You know that's how they lead everyone to hell is by paying out a few buck now.

Why do they think we are all so stupid to take the bait until it's too late?

Why do they need all this military more than the rest of the world combined and enforcement too?

Do you think old honest Trump is going to do something with all that???

The American money to back Hitler arose out of American slavery!

It's always LOOKING to be the same again! No?

Why then?

First the blacks, then Chinese and the Irish, then "Illegal" Mexicans

Investors complain about criminals but they LOVE LOVE LOVE the cheap labor and the poor bastard's lack of any and all legal recourse.

Now thanks to the drug wars we have prisoners working as slaves.

Do you feel special because you have a gig now? Really? Maybe someone put you through medical school and so you can act the part of the rich man, does that make you happy? Really?

Look how the Irish escaped slavery: by becoming the first police that could go around beating everybody up for the rich New Yorkers.

The problem for the Irish was that James Harper (of the famous publishing family) had just become mayor of New York City, running as a candidate for the infamous anti-Irish, anti-Catholic Know Nothing Party.

“The Know-Nothings preferred to have [police officers] named by the mayor, since ward control, in parts of the city, meant giving immigrants lots of input,” according to Reppetto and Lardner.

In other words, no Irish need apply.

Joining the Force
Galway native Barney McGinniskin is generally acknowledged to be the first Irish-born cop in a major U.S. city. He was hired to police the mean streets of Boston in 1851, but he lost his job three years later when nativist Know Nothings took control of the Massachusetts state legislature and cleared precincts of many Irish Catholics.

Try as the nativists might, however, they could not fight the radical changes under way in Boston, New York and cities across the country. So many Irish immigrants escaping the Famine meant that, eventually, they would come to dominate local politics, and police departments.

In fact, when the infamous New York City Draft Riots arose in 1863, though many scholars have identified the rioters as heavily Irish, it is less well known that many of the police who put the riots down were also Irish.

Reppetto and Lardner estimate that as early as the Draft Riots, half of the NYPD was already Catholic, the vast majority of them Irish.

Author Richard Zacks estimates that by the end of the 19th century, nearly 70 percent of the New York police force was Irish-born or first generation.

These Islamic terrorists have lived through GENERATIONS of our CIA allowing only American investor friendly administrations to survive in their countries for years and years now.

Generations have grown up living through tremendous deprivations because of our government's sanctions, our battles and our covert forces overwhelming the rule of law in these countries to bend them to the will of American investors.

And it's no coincidence why African history was erased from western schooling. America and Europe MADE SLAVES all over Africa taking gold, diamonds and spices.

Was there not enough profits to go around? Could the wealth not have been shared? OF COURSE IT COULD HAVE.

Why were those investors so greedy then? BECAUSE GREED IS THE DEADLIEST SIN! GREED IS A SICKNESS THAT KILLS ALL ELSE.

That is what we have to wake up and fight.

Okay? Please?

All the evil that is going on in our media was first used against the third world and perfected before they launched control of American talk radio and Fox News synchronized propaganda. We have been under attack from within.

How come Arab Slavery isn't mentioned?

The word Slave comes from Slav, which the Tartars sold to the Arabs and Turks by the millions. North African Arab Muslim Pirates took millions upon millions of White Slaves from the Coasts of Spain, France, Italy - as far as Ireland and even Iceland. Corsica's flag is a Moor's head to warn Arab Pirates and Slavers of their fate if they are caught raiding Corsica for plunder, rape, and slaves.

And of course, the Arabs totally enslaved most of East Africa. The European Slave Trade began when Portugal realized it was cheaper to buy slaves from Ghana than buy them in North Africa from the Maghreb, or East Africa from the Zanzibar.

The Arab Muslims were the greatest Slave Traders in history, bar none, enslaving from Marakech to Malaysia and beyond.

Europeans voluntarily ended the Slave Trade when they underwent a Moral Change. The Arabs ended Slavery only at the point of European firearms. Indeed the last Slave states, Mauretania, Saudi Arabia, and Sudan only did so under massive international pressure, and in fact Slavery continues there today. Qatar's World Cup Infrastructure will be built by Slaves, lured to Qatar not by flute-players as in the past, but by promises of employment; only to have their passports seized, to be beaten for slacking, kept in tents in the desert sun, and having their water revoked as punishment. Arab Slavery of Europeans only ended when Steamships were invented, allowing European Ships to outrun or chase down Arab Rowed Galleys that could escape with slaves into the wind, leaving sail ships behind.

The Great British Empire, and the Royal Navy in particular, was the primary force responsible for the end of Slavery and the Slave Trade.

The Great Hero and MP's Name was William Wilburforce, the Crusader Against Slavery.

So the issue that we are all divided on is you are either for slavery or against it.

If you are against slavery that atuomatically puts you in the category of being a John Locke LIBERAL Since you are subscribing to his philosophy and I quote:

Locke believed that people had natural rights to “life, liberty, and property”, and that the role of government was to preserve these rights. If a government does not preserve these rights, then the people have a right to change their government.

This is what scholars refer to as the political theory of Liberalism. Liberalism in this sense differs from the way the term is used in today’s media in American politics (i.e., referring to the opposite of “conservative”).

A Liberal government’s power is limited and justified by the solemn pledge to:

~ treat individuals with respect,
~ pass laws that more effectively guarantee individual freedom and liberty, and
~ avoid unreasonably infringing upon these liberties.

A Liberal government is one whose authority is justified by its respect for human rights. Liberal democracies rely heavily on majority rule through elections and legislative decisions, but they also limit majorities by protecting individual and minority rights.

This is not about TigglyPuff, LGBTQ, abortions, guns, and free stuff: ALL THOSE MANTRAS ARE PSYOPS to lead you to the false choice of slavery with a shimmering new mass media face lift.

Yep. And the Clintonistas, Blaires, Trudeaus are all about "Breaking down barriers to Trade" "Opening Borders", which is corporate speak for "Eliminate Trade Restrictions no matter how much harm it causes domestically, Export Jobs, and flood the labor market with more workers than job openings."

If it wasn't for Clinton and Blair able to move enough Democrats/Labour behind NAFTA/EU Expansion, Big Banks, Pharma, Insurance (Obamneycare), etc., we wouldn't be where we are now.

Most Democrats on this board - Marcus, YesYNot, BayAreaObserver, Bob - are economic neoliberals who buy the Corporate Think Tank line on the STEM (glut) shortage, H1Bs, Jobs Americans Won't Do, tons of mass migration of cheaper labor or you're a racist, Public-Private Partnerships (ie Public Pays the Expenses, Private Takes the Profits), etc. This is now the dominant thinking of the Democratic Party.

Bernie, Warren, and (I think lost his seat) Grayson, maybe some others are either in the minority, or buy into a big slice of the neoliberalism platform themselves. And the hard Lefties like Waters only care about welfare.

Trump is the reverse Clinton who is trying to take the Republican party back to a more nationalist, protectionist, traditional Hamiltonian Economic System that we had prior to the 1980s. At least he's worth a gamble. The Democratic Leadership is entirely Clintonista based. Even after a dramatic, surprise loss, they elected yet another Clintonista to run the DNC.

Right now Socialism means hating Whitey, denying that non-Whites can be Racist, worrying about Transgender bathrooms, asserting that Women with Master's Degrees driving BMWs or Lexuses (Lexi?) are oppressed by Patriarchy, while supporting massive transnational economic globalization.

It's actually so brilliant I cannot believe it was an accident or evolution of the Left.

The Left was deliberately destroyed by SJW issues and rabid feminists. The workers suffered, and moved to the right to support Trump.

Trump is turning out to be the lyingest kleptocrat that ever got busted at his golf course every other day it seems.

Basically Billionaire Lives Matter while bizarre speeches by Trump placate the working classes ironically who are about to give their health insurance up for a tax break for the 1% ... just for starters.

Healthcare rollback is the highest priority of this administration ... oy! ... that's because this was a strike against the rentier class who can afterwards go back to making wars, getting the slaves off weed, increasing enforcement and surveillance in anticipation of the climax to the current boogeymen crisis while they plot out the next unforeseeable (LOL) financial crash.

There is a reason you can't put your money anywhere safe from losses ... and that there's no more pensions ... and that healthcare is unthinkable to GOP

It's Work or Die. Billionaire Lives Matter.

You either either or slavery or against it triggly poof de damned!

Is that meant as a joke? They have one policy position where they are similar. They are HUGELY different on:

taxes
healthcare
EPA
Education
Civil forfeiture
financial regulation
immigration
et. al

Trump is wrong on so many issues, the one issue he's right on is almost irrelevant.
