MILLENARIAN GROUPS AND THE WINNING PARADOX

Conflict hopping and social media are two phrases that don’t seem like they belong together in the same sentence. But Jesse Humpal says those are two of the major factors behind the longevity of modern day Millenarian groups, or organizations that seek to violently transform global society. Violent actors the likes of Red Faction Army or Khmer Rouge were often supported or useful to enemy states, but faded away before the 2000’s. Today’s Millenarian groups use the connectivity of the Internet and a free agent approach to extend their lifespans.
