What if we take a step back and look at ISIL/Daesh as a socio-political-economic black hole?

Maybe we should try to understand the world's political problems like a distribution of matter and energy (which can be objectively measured and modeled) instead of a distribution of wealth and power (which admit too much mystery). Then we can use big data to understand and control and improve these problems?

Without a strong economy, masses of people living outside the gravity, heat, and light of modern wealth and power naturally form systems orbiting relatively poor and therefore independent forms of wealth and power. Strong politico economic gravity is felt by people with the possibility of gaining and losing real material wealth and security. People free from the orbit of modern economies can find themselves caught in the orbit of weak gravities produced by magical thinking and zealotry.

Out of this, I expect we should first try to achieve some detection and classification of systems/regimes like we do with astronomical objects: on a scale of positive-sum, negative-sum, or zero-sum games/regimes. Some of this will probably end up obeying principles in the standard model of physics. Are suicide bombers the Hawking Radiation of small bodies being sucked into the void, for example?

Since we are really modeling the interaction of matter in mass psychological systems, the "laws" and interactions we might discover are likely more complicated and interesting than the Physics we use as a starting point. Luckily we have ridiculous computer power available to run simulations and mounting data stores of past observations to crunch.
Attacks in Iraq, Turkey and Bangladesh show that the group’s tactics may change but its goals remain the same.

+John Brandon​ doesn't know (or pretends not to know) much about Ethics or AI, but would like you to click the ads of his sponsors if you like him are ignorant and afraid of the dark.

Even the choice of an optimal ethical model from a list of contenders (Utility, Deontology) can be made with optimization algorithms.

This is why Arab Emirs are perceived undeserving of their petroleum wealth, and Muslims perceived as backward and stuck in the middle ages.

+Edward Morbius Robert Reich stands up against TPP:

"Frankly, I'm appalled. The Trans Pacific Partnership is a Trojan horse in the global race to the bottom. That the Democratic Party platform won't oppose the TPP is a sad commentary on the continuing power of global corporations to dictate party policy whenever that policy might otherwise conflict with their goals.

The Democrat's failure to oppose the TPP also gives Donald Trump -- who is unambiguously against it -- a trump card he doesn't deserve."

Story

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)
