However, to suggest that capital goes out of its way to keep its market in barbarian dullness is probably the stupidest thing I have read.

The facts speak for themselves. The masses, even the most dull, still drink Coca Cola and brush with Crest.

Look I am not going to argue with you as to which is better. Capitalism for all its faults has some modicum of meritocracy and due process. In contrast, its predecessor, feudalism (in our age, Islam) was downright brutal.

We all know how capitalism has invaded and brutalised peoples in the span of its age, however, it seeks to globalise and impose its hegemony, consumerism.

The Arab Empire similarly conquers but for territorial reasons.

The former has to default to modernism and due process in order to develop the necessary market. The latter has to default to barbarism and brutality in order to protect the fixed wealths consolidation in the hands of a few.

You can take your pick.

Again, you are not addressing my comments (or arguing them, if you prefer). Syria, Libya and Iraq are not good examples of what you are saying. Libya now is, of course. An Islamic Republic, sharia law, and Coca Cola.

and btw who else besides the West et al. uses aka Al Queda Wahabbis foreign mercenary trained killers? You say "everybody" uses them, implying so should the West in their inevitable role as "planters of the seeds of their own destruction". Jeez. Dogmatic much?

How is it in stating the facts, one is being dogmatic. Islamists are widely used merceneries, period. Syria, Libya and Iraq were Islamic states with secular features. They all sat at the table of the Islamic Conference headed by gatekeeper of the empire, Saudi Arabia. They all followed the basic thrust of Arabist territorialism, for example in their support, in its various forms, of territorial struggles in faraway places such as Chechnya and Kashmir. Turkey treads a careful path due to its desire to enter the EU.

These states had ample opportunity to strike partnerships outside the Arab Empire and chose not to. They engaged in opportunistic relationships with America and periodically marched to Jeddah to meet with their imperial overlords. They brought their fate upon themselves.

In contrast Cuba right beside America has stood its ground. China, Maoist extremist, has comfortably slipped into the flow of capital. Vietnam, which defeated the US, now trades robustly with it.

Sometimes, you people look too hard for bogeymen. Too hard.
