A short time before 9/11/2001, I read or heard somewhere that terrorism arises from a deep sense of hopelessness and powerlessness. But I'm surprised that with all my reading, I haven't run across any kind of compelling discourse as to why terrorists kill civilians and themselves. Has anybody run across a cogent essay somewhere that has some insight into terrorism? Or do you have some insights yourself? Anyone. Thanks.
