He urges us to remember some important lessons while processing and reacting to these violent attacks. in particular, he urges readers to understand the root of the anger, understand the nature of the organization, remember that realities are constructed, to understand the capacity for recruitment and to recognize complexity while honoring simplicity in approaching the conflict.
