Terrorism: Motive & Solidarity

Categories:

Clayton Morgareidge, for the Old Mole Variety Hour, January 4, 2010

 In a violent world, where violence provokes more violence, there are enemies everywhere. Powerful nations create enemies among the less powerful and among their people. Thus our war on, and of, terror. 

There are two very different ways of thinking about our enemies – about people who want to do us in. One way is the way we treat garden pests: figure out how to identify them and then how to either fence them out or destroy them. In the case of human enemies, we can also hope that our methods inspire enough fear to deter them from doing what they want to do. This approach is energized by hatred because killing people comes more easily to us if we hate those we are killing. Then our killing is a natural part of how we feel – angry and afraid.   We don’t have to understand the motives of our enemies: it’s enough to call them evil or crazy. 

Terrorism: Motives & Solidarity

program date: 
Mon, 01/04/2010

Examining the case of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, the young Nigerian man who tried set off an explosion on a plane from Amsterdam as it approached Detroit on Christmas day, Clayton Morgareidge suggests that terrorist acts can result from the frustration of the democratic desire for solidarity.   For the text of this commentary and links to sources, go here.
