The Practice of Terror
The guillotine operators of the French Revolution were the direct ancestors of the the ISIS swordsmen. The practice of terrorism creates terrorists in much the same way that the practice of tennis creates tennis players. There is an endless vicious loop with regard to the generation of fanaticism and violence.
1902 - 1983
"It is probably true that violence breeds fanaticism as that fanaticism begets violence. It is often impossible to tell which came first, Both those who employ violence and those subject to it are likely to develop a fanatical state of mind. Ferrero says of the terrorists of the French Revolution that the more blood they "'shed the more they needed to believe in their principles as absolutes. Only the absolute might absolve them in their own eyes and sustain their desperate energy. (They) did not spill all that blood because they believed in popular sovereignty as a religious truth; they tried to believe in popular sovereignty as a religious truth because their fear made them spill so much blood.' The practice of terror serves the true believer not only to cow and crush his opponents but also to invigorate and intensify his own faith."
