Isis has attracted about 20,000 people from Western nations to its cause. Why would westerners want to travel across the globe to join a terrorist organization? There are many reasons. Some join because they are actually Muslims transplanted from North Africa or Arabian nations. Others are attracted by the offer of a sex slave for every fighter. Most however are attracted because Isis is taking advantage of one of the oldest secrets known to recruiters since the dawn of time. Losers are easily swayed.
Isis is attracting the losers of Western society. The crap job or jobless individuals who are often socially isolated, disenfranchised and disgruntled. They are capitalizing on the target group of everyone from the ancient Romans to the Nazi’s and Communists.
At the dawn of the American Civil War, most southerners were poor. How do you suppose they rich plantation owners got them to fight for the Confederacy and the preservation of slavery? By convincing them that even though they were poor, they could save and in time, they too could own a slave. They used the same argument to pass and enforce Jim Crow laws by telling the poor white trash southerners that no matter how crappy their lives were, no matter how poor and uneducated they may be, they were still better than a black person.
The reason the losers of the world are so easily swayed is because they don’t want to be losers. They want to be winners. They want their lives to have meaning. They want to fulfill a purpose. The first person or group that tells them they can have a purpose, the first person or group that convinces them that they can be or are winners, will attract them. This can be done by good people or organizations just as it is often done by malevolent people and organizations. Many losers for example are moved towards religions who tell them that God loves them and shows the miracles God works in their lives.
Many of the Westerners in Isis are disenfranchised, disgruntled sex starved losers of Western society who Western societies have failed to engage. They are our outcasts and a product of our neglect. Whether they are nerds who could never get a girl to go out with them. child molesters attracted to the 9-12 year old sex slaves offered by Isis or idealists who want to be part of a winning team attracted to Isis early military victories we left them by the wayside and Isis scooped them up. One thing they are not is real Muslims. Real Muslims know that Isis has as much to do with the religion of Islam was the Stay Puff Marshmallow Man.
