The terrorists of IS are currently prepared to die for their islamist beliefs. We on the other side of the conflict, do everything to spare our own lives. We develop new expensive techniques to attack from far distances and without human presence. So in this secular western world, what is our ideology? Putting our own lives over the bigger cause – individualism? Lacking a bigger cause – capitalism?

In “Spontaneous Evolution” Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman provides this model:
“Civilisations” (western world’s) 4 basal paradigms:
The western world today is super materialist, which means we acknowledge only matter and not spirit in our belief system.
The islamists are offering a monotheistic world view where the godly, in fact the spiritual realm is the only important and the material world is just a transport, a stepping stone for an after life in paradise.
