Links between the two. Funding. Apologetics. Historical origins and counterparts. Myths. Do people become terrorists because they are crazy, or out of conviction, or because they enjoy blowing things up? Why do they remain terrorists? When and how do they retire from terrorism (the ones who do), and what do they do afterwards? What do people who would otherwise become terrorists do when they lack opportunity? (Do they ever lack opportunity? What about eras before gunpowder and mass armies?)

What can we do about people who want us to die for their convictions?
