    "Islamic terror" does not exist in the world of western multiculturalism.
    That is absolutely true in the progressive left "respectable media". But a lot of conservative, libertarian and neoconservative media - specially the neocons - talk about Islamic Terrorism and even though they are not deemed as "cult" or "respectable", they are the ones with more listeners and that shape the minds of the silent majority of the people.

    Exactly... There were mass demonstrations "Je ne suis Charlie" (I am not Charlie) throughout the Muslim world but no march against violence or against the Muslim extremism in the Muslim world.
    Now I am absolutely sure that if someone did a big terrorist attack in name of Christ, the next day there would be mass demonstrations of all denominations of Christianity against the attacks and the Church would excommunicate them.
    The same thing happens in Jewish communities when someone goes too much "out of line" to the point that people boycott all their business and cut all types of relations to the peoples they expel from their communities.

    That is true. The world "appears" far more dangerous today than ever before because of the ubiquitous presence of video cameras. A small flood or land slide or bombing gets recorded from multiple angles and repeated 24/7 for weeks on end. People tend to focus on the negative more than positive already.

    I was in Paris during the terror attack in November. I had the TV news on. It got depressing after 2 days of continuous reporting and I just had to watch something else.

    As usual, The Colonel deconstructs the argument in one, simple statement.

    If ISIS and Al Qaeda are Islamic terror will you allow the same logic to the IRA being catholic terror and the Ku Klux Klan being Christian racism?

    Was going through my previous posts and don't think I ever read all the responses to this one.

    Feel the same.

    What I find interesting is the (to me apparent) increase in global geopolitical instability since the mid 00's as opposed to the the almost continual decline experienced by the world in the last quarter or so of the 20th Century. To me it seems tied to the lasting impact GFC and the end to what was almost 50 years of more or less continuous economic growth and rising rising levels of global prosperity prior to that event. Now that the world appears to have entered a period of extended low to zero economic growth we seem to also be seeing rising levels of political disengagement and/or frustration by the electorate in the West and an outright breakdown in political authority in other parts of the world. The worrying thing is that instability and uncertainty are by default counter-productive in terms of increasing global wealth. The 'real' or physical economy by and large thrives on certainty not uncertainty. So the question is - assuming global economic growth doesn't improve in the near future, have we reached some kind of global tipping point?

    Periods of crisis happen.But global economy is mostly harmed by fighting.And fighting is provoked by rising competitors of the west.Who rose because they had enough peaceful years to grow.
