Interesting points - but I'm not sure how big a part porn really plays in people's lives. Sure, sex sells in advertising but it's only the sickest individuals whose lives revolve around porn. Most people tend to get thing a bit more in perspective by the time they reach 25.

"Who cares, whether Obama or Putin are to bleme in the Middle East? Actually, they're both just bit actors."

I don't agree. They COULD wipe ISIS in a week - they have the tools to do it but they are not doing it. ISIS actions are against all UN coventions, rules etc. So why is nothing being done?

"..And this is what young Muslim men have to sublimate -- and this makes them angry at the West.."

It's not porn. Stats show that internet searches for some quite sick porn related behaviours come from countries such as Pakistan , Saudi etc.

They're basically control freaks without the gnauss to be able to live in a modern Western society. So a far more emotionally appealing option for them to get to act out their arab machismo is to become one of allah's little agents.
