Desire, Death and Dialogue. Dealing with Terrorism - Enduring, violent, social and political conflicts have often been interpreted as rational actor consequences resulting from socio-economic inequity or the struggle for power. The advent of global jihadi terrorism has been presented as a fight between good and evil - each side."Islamist" and "Western", characterising the enemy in similar opposing terms. This has recently been popularized as a clash of religions, cultures or civilizations with an analysis of the problem in terms of Islamic fundamentalism leading to political radicalization and resultant anti-western terrorism. The Author challenges these analyses using a model of societal development and dissolution in the face of threat. The model is based on an evolutionary approach which owes much to the psychoanalytical and psychobiological approaches which have come from working with mentally ill individuals, but applies these ideas to breakdown in the organism which is the larger society. His approach is particularly unusual because it is based on practical political applications through conflict resolution processes in different parts of the world.
