In the deep recesses of your mind lies an instinct that I have identified as the Herding instinct. It is one of three powerful unconscious instincts that control your major decisions in life. It is the one that motivates terrorist to commit horrible acts of violence. In their minds they are joining a group forever. Their desire to be part of a group is so powerful of a driving force in these individuals that it can override logical thinking.
The other two powerful instincts are the Will to Survive and the Pleasure Instinct. For more information about this theory go to my website www.thephilosophyofinclusion.com
