Not sure about this...[edit]

Nothing links here, not sure we really need this unless someone can expand the article to talk about the fanaticism at the root of the practice...but "desperate military strategies" aren't really in our bailiwick. TheoryOfPractice 11:11, 2 January 2009 (EST)

Conceivably a link to fanatical fundamentalism which (under some circumstances) also encourages the believers to kill themselves for the cause. Could be used to make the point that not all suicidal fanatics are religiously inspired. If somebody wants to write it.--Bobbing up 13:20, 2 January 2009 (EST)
Surely Kamikaze suicide bombers (in essence that's what they were) wer motivated by loyalty to the divine god-emperor? So I don't think your point is really valid. As a branch of fanaticism they could be referred to as the progenitors (?) of Fundamentalist suicide bombers. Toast 13:35, 2 January 2009 (EST)
The use of Kamikaze attacks was also exploited for American propaganda -School-children are taught that the US had to use atomic weapons to avoid a war of attrition with an enemy that preferred death before dishonor. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 17:50, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Educated fanatic[edit]

Just because someone is educated, it doesn't mean, the s/he is less prone to become a fanatic.--Arisboch (talk) 08:31, 22 August 2014 (UTC)
