Let me get right to the point. President Trump is a complete moron if he honestly believes his military advisors are setting him up for success. I want President Trump
A new paper published through the University of St. Andrews, Dehumanisation in Religious and Sectarian Violence: the Case of Islamic State, explores the uniquely horrific practices of the Islamic State. The author, Dr. Gilbert Ramsay, explores how the Islamic State does not dehumanize their victims in traditional ways. In fact, the Islamic State will often attribute a great deal of humanity to those massacred. This can be seen most explicitly in the videos IS publishes. In one instance, Dr. Ramsay notes IS employs editing in their execution videos that offer: “a window into the thoughts of the penitent victim prior to death”. Through their publications, IS seeks to create an intimate bond between the viewer and the victim. The religious content of the Islamic State ideology is so potent, the dehumanization of massacred individuals is sometimes unnecessary. According to IS, Infidels and Shiites must be killed or submit to their ideology. As evidenced by the callous nature of their videos, this is done unapologetically.

To be sure, Ramsay also notes the Islamic State will, from time to time, use dehumanizing methods. However, compared to other genocidal organizations, IS does not employ dehumanization nearly as frequently. Notably, the Nazis found found ways to dehumanize and shield themselves from profoundly depraved actions. The implications of the Islamic State’s ideological nature presents a terrifying possibility: we are dealing with an entity that does not find genocidal activities to be morally unconscionable.

The Islamic State represents a truly unique and horrible evil. Although they are materially weak, the ideological power of IS is potent. It has been often said that you can kill a man but you can not kill an idea. While I agree with the sentiment of this maxim, the West must begin to attack and kill the ideology upon which the Islamic State is premised. If this new study is any indication, combatting the Islamic State’s cancerous belief system will be incredibly difficult.

World News and It’s Hunting Season!
Mathew Gilman “The Collapse Experiment”
On this episode of the Collapse Experiment… Around the world the hunt is on. Here in Michigan bow season for deer is in. Turkey season is in full swing with me unable to get a license in time, sigh.
In Syria, Putin is also enjoying the hunt going after ISIS with air strikes that has started to drive the group into Turkey. The US and Russia have gone back and forth about Syrian airspace and coordinating attacks against the radical militant group. Like I said before, you know you’re a special kind of jerk when Russia and the US will work together to get rid of you. The Syrian army has joined the fight with an offensive following a series of Russian air strikes against ISIS targets.
To the north, Obama has decided to leave 5,500 troops in Afghanistan for another year delaying our leave of the country. This comes after attacks from the Taliban and a coalition helicopter crash in Kabul on October 10th killing two American soldiers. The move is to ensure the security of the country after the US is completely gone.
Iraq has finally put on their big boy pants and is preparing an assault against the ISIS held Ramadi. This is after the Iraqi army an with their tail between their legs a few years ago when ISIS took over the area in a Blitzkrieg style offensive into the country.
In political collapse news everybody agrees with Bernie. The first democratic political debate had everyone repeating the comments of the oldest man on stage. Bernie Sanders had no problem telling people how it is and everyone would reply with “I agree with Bernie…” The debate was a stale version of the republican debate with no Trump for everyone to attack. Even Hillary was non existent on stage.
China is warning the US about their presence in the south china sea. The US is concerned about the Chinese building military facilities on a series of islands that are in dispute. China warns the US to stay away from the region after the US made comments about patrolling the area.
A Scottish nurse that contracted Ebola over a year ago in Sierra Leone is in critical condition after the virus came back. The doctor are convinced that the virus is not contagious and that a weakened version of the virus has returned after not being fully eradicated.
