THE VECTORS OF VIOLENT EXTREMISM
This lecture will look at historical examples of gang violence in the USA and Germany to determine parallels and divergences. Students will be asked to compare their own experiences and history to build a model of the sources which cause violent extremism. The sources of extremism are poverty and desperation, anger and despair. Anger at being isolated, shut out, ridiculed, excluded. Despair at lack of opportunity. Desperation due to hunger, untreated illness, absent medical care. No education other than the gang, whatever stripes or colors the gang wears to intimidate enemies and inspire friends. In some respects, extremist violence is a reaction to violation. Without a wellspring of despair violence is limited to isolated individuals, deluded fools or criminals. Despair is a necessary precondition to extremism, may exceptionally be sufficient on its own, but is not the sole cause of violent extremism.
WEDNESDAY 14 DECEMBER 12:15-16:00 (PDS)
ENGENEERING VIOLENT EXTREMISM
LECTURE: Though often a reaction to poverty and desperation, not all violent extremism is desperate and poor. In fact, elite leaders of extremist movements, the Lenins, Maos, and Bin Ladens of the world, are by-and-large from the upper classes. Rarely, a rabble rousing populist like Hitler emerges from the rank-and-file. But by and large the main ingredients of extremist violence are elites consciously choosing violence and everyday people so desperate that they will try anything just to have the bare necessities. Add war veterans, police, some guns and explosives, a taunting prejudiced provocation here and there, season with misplaced ambition and jealousy, and set on a low simmer of constant low-grade domestic violence and petty crime until the pot explodes. That, roughly speaking, is the recipe for "success" in violent radicalism. This lecture examines the biographies and histories of various violent extremists such as Lenin, Hitler, Stalin, and Bin Laden to determine whether and how to prevent or stop violent extremism.This lecture seeks to understand common paths of violence.
