Gill disenchantment response prospects remain fraught with danger and uncertainty for a fairly long time to come. The danger here is that, if as crucial a player in the international arena as the US continues to be driven by this paradigm, it could well produce the circumstances for its partial and devastating realization.
The exception to this broad stream of responses is India itself, which has long been targeted by a Pakistan-backed terrorist movement that has sought to claim an Islamist justification. Aberrations apart, India has been extraordinarily successful in separating its counter-terrorist response from the administrative and psychological orientation towards the larger community itself.
Indeed, this has been the Indian experience against religious-identity-based insurgencies and terrorist movements in the past as well. These are, in essence, reactions against modernity, symptoms of a distress provoked by trends towards modernisation within stagnant communities, of the social and moral confusion resulting from the challenge to the supremacy of the fundamentalist line of thought that has long been propagated uncontested in many countries, as well as in many sub-cultures within larger and sometimes pluralistic communities.
The violence of the Islamist response is, in fact, an index of the fears and frustration at the realization that the ways of thought and of life the fundamentalists favour are losing popularity, and that they have, themselves, become a minuscule minority within Islam.
This, precisely, is also what had happened among the supporters of Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale in the Punjab, as extremist elements within the enormously tolerant community and essentially pluralistic Faith found their narrow and bigoted interpretations of the tenets of Sikhism being rejected by the larger community.
So indeed, is it the case in other religious identity based movements. The crisis is the more urgent and is intensifying among Muslims, as the community spreads into Europe and the Americas and comes face to face with the complex realities of modern societies, modes of production and lifestyles.
They destroyed prevailing orthodoxies long before they were themselves corrupted to be transformed, in turn, into a new orthodoxy. This truth contains the seeds of the inevitable destruction of the contemporary fundamentalist reassertion.
With the internet and contemporary communication technologies, this "planetary network" has, in substantial measure, been realized, and is being constantly exploited, both by the forces of liberty and by its enemies. It is through the strengthening of these integral and global interconnectivities, through their continuous and deeper penetration into the recesses of poverty and dispossession among marginalized populations, through, crucially, a radical investment in and reform of education, that a final victory will be shaped.
What most frightens bigots and fundamentalists across the world is the progress of science which destroys the irrational myths that underpin the cosmology of religions, and puts the power of knowledge into the hands of the people, robbing the professional interpreters of the Faith of their cabalistic powers.
This, then, is the weapon that will secure the eventual victory of reason and science over dogma and violence. Published in The Pioneer, February 5, DISENCHANTMENT, RATIONALITY AND THE MODERNITY OF MAX WEBER II. WEBER ON DISENCHANTMENT AND RATIONALITY 1.
