Why Did British Police Ignore Pakistani Muslim Gangs Abusing 1,400 Rotherham Children? Political Correctness »


Mary Reeser, born in 1881, was found almost completely consumed by fire in her Florida home in 1951. The odd thing about the discovery of her body was that part of her left foot was left completely unscathed, and the extremely high temperature required to cremate a human body did not cause damage to the room or objects around the pile of ash which remained. The FBI investigators called in Professor Krogman from the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Medicine, in the hopes that he might explain the mystery. He said: “I find it hard to believe that a human body, once ignited, will literally consume itself — burn itself out, as does a candle wick, guttering in the last residual pool of melted wax…. Just what did happen on the night of July 1, 1951, in St. Petersburg, Florida? We may never know, though this case still haunts me…. I cannot conceive of such complete cremation without more burning of the apartment itself. In fact the apartment and everything in it should have been consumed. I regard it as the most amazing thing I have ever seen. As I review it, the short hairs on my neck bristle with vague fear. Were I living in the Middle Ages, I’d mutter something about black magic.” The mystery has never been solved.

Why Militant Groups Succeed »

To understand this phenomenon, we need to turn back to the 14th century Arab historian Ibn Khaldun, who observed the frequency of smaller, poorer groups defeating larger, better organized states. Khaldun posited that the cause of this phenomenon was a concept he termed asabiyyah. According to Khaldun, groups on the margins of society including tribes and today’s militants possess a strong sense of asabiyyah, which translates loosely as “group feeling.” Groups possessing strong asabiyyah have a strong sense of cohesion and solidarity and the individuals who made up these societies feel tightly bound to the group’s goals. On the other hand, groups that become more civilized and wealthy have a weaker sense of asabiyyah and become more lax and less coordinated because of the growth of wealth and individualism.

Thus, groups with a strong sense of solidarity and purpose frequently take their societies to great heights, but upon doing so, loose the cohesion and ability to maintain their power. As a result, they are frequently overwhelmed by newer groups possessing their original characteristics. These newer groups often see an opportunity to engage in a level of violence to achieve their goals unmatched by more established states. This explains why well-established, rich countries often feel overwhelmed in confronting small, militant groups despite the resources they have in doing so. Imagine how difficult it is then for weaker states with almost no sense of nationhood to confront militants and rebels.
