How about Operation White Man's Burden or War Against Imperial Subjects?
Well, those are catchy.
And I'm left once again to wonder, what exactly are the differences between, say followers of Al Qaida and followers of Bu$hCo? Psychologically, they seem to be cut from very similar cloth. Let us count the ways:
- Strict adherence to authority-sanctioned norms (well call it "conventionalism").
- Fanatical devotion to their leaders and causes, leading to strict obedience among those followers and a demand for such obedience from their leaders.
- Unwillingness or inability to think about complex social problems in anything but the most simplistic terms (we might use a technical term "low cognitive complexity").
- A tendency to see authority-sanctioned violence as acceptable, necessary, as God's duty, etc. Hence, the single minded drive towards engaging in holy wars; hence, the use of terrorism (whether it's setting bombs off in a tube station or at a family planning clinic, or burning a cross in front of an ethnic minority's home it's the same damned thing). We'll call this "authoritarian aggression."
