Christopher Dickey

Christopher Dickey, son of the great American poet James Dickey, and a leading international journalist, wrote a book in 2009 predicting much more terrorism to come.

He was, to say the least, prescient and his analysis seems to remain relevant down to the present time of escalated Islamist assault upon the West and its national cultures. Or does the murderous regime of the Islamic State Caliphate represent a qualitative as well as quantitative change?

    The Islamic state is simply the latest name for a basis of terrorism that will continue until the final result.

    Yes. Bill. I do fully agree that the ferocity and rigorous (ideologically sustained) homicidal madness has been there for a long time. But the new, sustaining myth of the reestablished caliphate does give that shared madness a widened and deepened provenance. In marketing terms it is as if they have made a great leap forward in developing their “branding” strategy.
