What has really been causing the increasing number of Islamic terrorist attacks?
The endless attempts to make all people get along in harmony, as one equal people, no-matter how distinctly different they are, has never worked, even when great force was applied. Long-lasting traditional religions and powerful political ideologies, such as Marxism, have failed to make people live together in peace and equality. Any relative peace and harmony possible has come with people who share the same genetic and cultural disposition.
In every human culture ever studied, human nature included kin-selection preferences, incest taboos, marriage, hierarchy, division of labor, gender differentiation, localism, and ethnocentrism, even xenophobia, with group-selection as the main unit of selection. If a culture proposes to not include these things, the culture does not last long and it will always return to these things.
For example, if I take a bold and honest look at what has really been causing the increasing number of Islamic terrorist attacks (therefore a politically incorrect look) I see the struggle for access or control of oil by big global corporations and the constant nefarious schemes of the neoconservatives and the Israelis. And these three powerful sources often agree in their deceitful purposes. Does that not define a conspiracy?
Powerful lobby groups who work for these groups help elect and control politicians and the media, and this generally means the use of slander, libel, and all manner of dirty tricks against anyone who does not agree to their schemes. Islamic terrorism will not be stopped and relative peace and order will not be restored until this deceit and conspiracy is understood and stopped.
But I do not advocate all-out war against these people. I advocate ethnopluralism, which acknowledges the very natural drives of different groups to reach for dominance and success---which is part of real human nature---but separates distinct ethnic groups and cultures into ethnostates, and then protects the states internally and externally with some sort of federalism.
The world has tried to become a melting pot into one stew of people, which refuses to melt. So we are left with all the different ethnic groups and cultures endlessly scheming against one another for dominance. Ethnopluralism finally acknowledges this reality, and in doing so offers the world the best chance for long-term peace and order.
Then perhaps we can get on with the sacred mission of evolving, with variety, each in our own way, toward Godhood, guided by international sociobiological research centers, open to all, and by the religious philosophy of theological materialism. Other philosophies have not worked, and we are steadily moving toward extinction.
