Two different thoughts on why terrorism happens

There appear to be two schools of thought on the Right as to why terrorism happens. The first is opined by Hoover Institute’s Victor David Hanson in National Review. The second is given by Independent Institute’s Sheldon Richman in Reason. Both are quite interesting in how they show a major split between conservatives and libertarians (although Richman is probably closer to an anarcho-capitalist or an agorist) on foreign policy and what to do in the face of Islamic extremism.

Hanson’s view is simple: The West allows itself to be attacked because of its openness and willingness to accept whoever.
