    Islam's reaction to Globalization, TERRORISM

    Islam's reaction to Globalization, TERRORISM
    By Gerald Internet Anthropologist Think Tank.

    Islam is frightened of Globalization,
    and America represents Globalization.

    USA has been pushing globalization
    for years, even though they know it
    means lowering the standards of living
    in America.

    As should be done, USA uses too many
    resources for its size, Out sourcing
    means moving jobs from USA to cheaper
    countries. Globalization is a rebalancing
    of wealth based on best interests for

    Capitalism is forcing USA to share the
    power and wealth, thru globalism.

    Part of this new paradigm:

    Social change usually evolves from a
    movement, fueled by "NEWS".

    In the 1800's a series of photos by
    Reis I think, spurred the development
    of zoning laws, and child's rights
    legislation, was the power of his
    photos of the slums and conditions.

    And the book about Chicago's slaughter
    houses created some of the first laws for
    animal rights, and food safety regulations.

    The global world population has seen this
    in many forms, and have established some
    minimal human rights.

    The decisions on these rights were spontaneous
    and almost world wide.

    One is the right to communicate, and the ownership
    or right of "the right to know".

    In the case of Iran's shutting off parts of the Internet
    the world has said NO. They have a "right to Know."

    And the world has been countering Iran's effects at

    This is a new paradigm.
    All people's "right to know".

    And the citizens of the WORLD, are ready and
    taking on the Iranian Intelligence apparatus.

    Not governments, not armies, not politicians
    or capitalists globalization.

    We the PEOPLE of the World have said
    to Iran's attempt to cut its people off

    Use of the Internet has become a global
    human right, the right to communicate,
    be informed.

    And the people of the world have agreeded
    to censorship of the Terrorist. Shutting down their
    web sites.

    Social Change will come much sooner than it
    did in the past, the Internet has expanded the effort
    and speed of these social changes.

    The Internet maybe the awakening of a Global

    And the ability to enforce its will.

    But back to the fundamentalists Islam fears.

    They see the globalization from different eyes.
    They see Satan coming.

    Globalization has expanded sexualization
    of the worlds cultures.

    Some of the fundementalist keep their womans
    entire body covered except for the eyes.
    For them an ankle can produce an erection.
    Now dump porno movies on that culture.

    In some of those cultures the act of rape,
    is blamed on the female.

    The underlying thought is that men can't control themselves
    upon even seeing a sexy/semi-exposed female.

    And globalization is exposing those cultures
    to porn and other upsetting paradigms.

    The coming globalization scares hell out of them.
    And USA and the world has it on railroad
    cars coming as fast as hell.

    Terrorism is a very big cultural knee jerk reaction
    to globalization. A feeling their culture is at risk.

    They fear the total collapse of their culture.
    The men are not comfortable looking at that
    much skin.
    For a culture where an arm can be something
    erotic, its a huge shock to get porno by the boat load.

    Most Muslems have taken this in stride.
    And realize men can constrain themselves.
    But the fundementalist are frightened
    for their culture.
    Of course its not exactly like that
    or even sex maybe, but it gives you a
    idea of how they feel about globalization,
    or at least parts of it.

    And its not just porn, its the whole
    package, that comes with globalization.G.

    The demand here is for identity retention amidst globalization's churning advance and destabilizing embrace of traditional societies. You have to meet that demand for the connectivity ultimately to stabilize.

    Yes, it's good these reformists seek to conserve Islam. The blame-the-West stuff will always be there, especially if we keep the fights close-in rather than just lie back and let the extremists bring it to us, but since the crisis is within Islam and especially within the Arab world and its culture, it's better to keep the violence where it belongs, forcing the change that must happen. Suffering the increased radicalization is worth it, because it focuses the locals' sense of what the true alternatives are. Absent that pain, the Middle East would keep on being the Middle East forever.

    And that simply won't work in this world.


    No culture has survived intact with
    contact with a more advanced/powerful
    culture, American Indians, Indians in
    S. America, all succumbed to capitalism.

    In Aftica the colonys were required to
    pay taxes. That was a big impact on
    their culture.
    In Africa taxation changed the family
    structure, where a large family was
    an asset in hunter gather cultures,
    to a large family becoming a liability
    as an taxable entity.
    The focus changed from hunter gather
    to earning money to pay taxes, and
    buy food. They had to stop hunting gathering
    to pay taxes on land they owned or loose
    their land.

    Islam's fundementalist knee jerk
    reaction to globalization is to fight
    back, with jahid.

    Once most clutures see the
    contact with globalization doesn't
    mean the dissolution of their culture
    they make the adjustment.

    Globalization brings a humanizing
    effect also, world pressure on
    dictatorships to change.
    And basic human rights for
    all people.
