The question is how a region that once yearned for modernity could reject it so dramatically. In the Middle Ages the Arabs studied Aristotle (when he was long forgotten in the West) and invented algebra. In the 19th century, when the West set ashore in Arab lands, in the form of Napoleon's conquest of Egypt, the locals were fascinated by this powerful civilization. In fact, as the historian Albert Hourani has documented, the 19th century saw European-inspired liberal political and social thought flourish in the Middle East.

I grew up in across from a strip mine in a . steel town that is now in desperate straits. The only stores open downtown are gambling dens and bars. Down by the river, are rusty trailers with a big sign pointing there that says "GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS!" What a terrible ending for a place that took pride in making the steel that won WWII and built this country. I was there when Kerry came to campaign. He never got out of his stretch limo with the tinted windows except for a pretend rally for the news, with a few union guys paid to wave signs. They locked down the town and the bridge across the Ohio while he was there. I could not help but compare that to JFK coming there, shaking hands with everyone at the community center. Kerry did not notice our agony. He, essentially, stepped over bodies, too good to notice the locals. I was always a Democrat, but after that performance I realized they had zero interest in us. For your information, people there don't sit around complaining about how the blacks or immigrants are taking their jobs. What jobs!? The mill has been ground up and melted down! I didn't, and don't, know anyone who sits around drunk or uses drugs. I'm sure those people exist but they are not the norm. Church, family and trying to make a living is the norm. In fact, I never met anyone like the people . Vance describes. I think he wrote a lot of hyperbole to push the views of his pal Murry.
