Howdy, Peace on Earth!
Well, I can throw a model here that I think includes all the actors as
well as the motives behind terrorism...
THE LAW OF THE JUNGLE
Once upon a time, in the deep jungle, lived a Lion and a Monkey... One
day the Monkey, tired of the Lion always taking the LION'S SHARE, and
seeing that such injustice represented a danger to all, demanded
JUSTICE... The HUNGRY LION, yawning and stretching, said, "You would
have to have paws and sharp teeth..." Then the Monkey, who was very
clever, devised a plan: He would go to the costume store, and look
like a lion...
When the Lion saw him, noticing that the new lion wasn't a match for
him, and fearing COMPETITION, killed him on the spot --before the
indifferent look of the little animals of the jungle... And that's how
the Law of the Jungle was re-established one more time...
NOTE: Other monkeys survived him...
This HUNGRY LION is very peaceful, that is until his lion's share is
challenged. "How dare you? Well, I'm the King of the Jungle, and I
give a damn." There's a problem though: Your lion's share rides on the
GREAT INJUSTICES committed over billions of little animals. "Never
mind, you would have to come up with an armed revolutionary struggle
and have real teeth and paws to show." Well, you know the rest of the
story: There's no military match for the King of the Jungle. But the
new violent monkeys are intent on beating the beast and say, "The hell
with it, one way or another we'll get the mother f***," and then the
little animals start putting the dead to both sides...
Well, guys, for the whole thing to stop, there's but one single
solution: STOP THE JUNGLE! Yep, THE JUNGLE MUST GO. It must be ended
for big and small; the lion's share must be, well, shared; he must end
his MONOPOLISTIC BEHAVIOR that don't allow for CHOICES; and the
indifferent little animals must be taught to not ever again live with
a lion as if pretending there's none. That would be a happy ending to
the story indeed.
