"a strong man armed keepeth his palace" - Low-entropy Paris vs. High-entropy Syria/Iraq

Around Tokyo

Low-entropy Paris vs. High-entropy Syria/Iraq

Civilization creates many various structure in good order of goods, products, systems, and organizations.  But while producing so many well organized products of civilization, it also produces a great degree of chaos around the center of civilization.

Civilization reduces entropy at its core, but it also increases entropy around it in a degree that would surpass the degree of the decrease in entropy at its core.

That is why while the US has been so prosperous, Mexico and other Latin American nations have been poor and in disorder politically and economically.  That is why while so many rich Americans are enjoying a high degree of civilized lives, there never cease to exit more poor and unhappy Americans around them.

Now, America, the EU, and part of Arab nations have become so prosperous, enjoying low-entropy well-ordered civilized living.   Then, there must be some regions or groups of people who must play a role of peripheral high-entropy players living in more disorder of environments.

Yes, those Islamic regions stretching from North Africa to Afghanistan and Pakistan and further regions south of the Sahara and Saudi Arabia seem to play the role of the high-entropy and ill-ordered players.

Moreover, even among Islamic nations, the more Dubai gets prosperous in an well-ordered manner, the less Iraq and Syria get stable, thus losing order.

In this context, a prosperous and well-ordered civilized center of civilization, Paris must clearly stand as a great opponent or inevitable enemy to those desperate extremists in the Islamic regions.  The more Paris is in order, the more Syrian and Iraq are in disorder.  Paris must look like a symbolic city of the European civilization or the Western Civilization that has sacrificed some Islamic people.

Anyway, from a physical point of view, Paris and other major West European cities are in a state of low entropy being well ordered, but Syrian, Iraq, and those war-torn Islamic nations are in a state of high entropy being ill ordered.  And, this is an inevitable condition for the human civilization especially since the start of the Industrial Revolution that was set off in England in the 18th century.

To solve the current issue of Islamic extremest terror, we have to change the form of our civilization, so that no dangerous entropy gap would be generated between the center of civilization and peripheral regions.

Luk 11:21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:
Luk 11:22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.
Luk 11:23 He that is not with me is against me: and he that gathereth not with me scattereth.
