The present-day mass-media seems to portray each and every (of
the so many recent) radical Islamist acts of terrorism as “events”, or
absolutely unique and unprecedented eruptions in historical time. This, of
course, utterly obfuscates how, until the U.S.A. repatriates about half the
globe back to itself, terrorism will now and maybe forever remain a normal everyday
global occurrence, and this perhaps most especially in the few but virulently metastatic
postindustrial enclaves of the world.
