Deep Cause of Terrorism
“The deep cause of Muslim terrorism is not religious. It’s hate for western civilisation.
But this problem is replicated by another: We westerners don’t love ourselves either. Our missionaries are quite conscious of this reason buried deeply beneath other arguments. The people they meet don’t love themselves/each other, don’t expect much from themselves, in other words there is a painful general apathy. Should I say a general depression? … I am going to tell you why they feel this disgust or general apathy. It’s because they have completely lost sight that mankind has a much greater need for grandeur, interior beauty (RA 12/3), superior ideals, magnificent, of heroism (RA xxxv/4-12), love for one’s neighbour, forgiveness, true freedom, than for social security. That is what The Revelation of Arès reintroduces into our minds and that is what we seek to reintroduce to the public mind by assembling a small remnant (24/1) of heroes who go into the streets to remind humanity of this. Yes, we must fish out our beautiful ideals, particularly those of The Sermon on the Mount, from the gutters and sewage pipes where they have been abandoned.”
