in response to reader comment: The Paradigm of Civilizationism is Already Challenged. Where Does the Order of Society Come From Now?

Comes now the shoe not dropped, but thrown with contempt at those who would seek peace by equitable means, yet thwarted for the incompatibility of the ideologies and mindsets of the enemies of peace; for a peaceful solution does not meet the needs of egos and pride filled hearts that rage within themselves because they cannot seem to get their own way. As such, threats of war and engagement in terror tactics like that seen in Syria by all sides have been the norm for quite some time and extensions of those tension are about to breakout in ways not seen since the Second World War; only this next time it is going to be so much more dramatically worse.

The immigrations issue(s) are the forerunners; the refugee crises, here in America and Europe, from Africa and the Middle East; all are precursors; in the Middle East, Israel is the central target for most are convinced that Israel caused it all. This may be true; but not for the reasons most think!
Let's go back and settle on the premise that Islamic supremacism is a pivotal component of the rage directed towards Israel; and to some extent it is: but why? For example, if the immigration issue (which was caused by the colonialism of the Middle European powers of times past) did not have the emotional component of resistance of ethnic populations pushing back on African/Muslims refugees, would they even care about what is/was happening in the donor countries? In this there is the convergence of competing theosophies (which God do you want to be subservient to (?)) and how does one attempt to merge or blend the two in a further attempt to find compatibilities for peaceful coexistence. It cannot be done.

So, resorting to the default human condition, asserting supremacy become the objective; for the pride that exists and manifest itself in every sector of society is subjected or is made to be subject to the greater power. The problem with that is determining who is superior. Who gets to make that determination?

The great battle to determine that is in the winds of fury developing in the near future; indeed, the precursors to that are already in motion. The prescient notion of civilizationism is threatened in its initialization of its own concept for not will adhere to the notion of peaceful resolution; humanity does not inherently possess that greater nobility in any innate capability, instead pursuing hatred comes more naturally. Ask how al-Assad will rule if, and maybe, he does not destroy Syria in his purge. Will the Russian even let him rule when they move more fully into the Golan?

Such a determination is a threat to civilizationism and that will be arriving to its own conclusion shortly, if the Russians continue their push. Ask how the west needs to respond to that?
