Much of the violence we see in the world, especially in the less developed parts of the world, is that which is perpetrated by militias. It emerges that there are some three reasons as to why people form such militias.
The first reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their political interests.
The second reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their economic interests. You come to realize that people are ready to go to great lengths, to protect their economic turfs.
The third reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their social interests. This is where the issue of religious militias comes into the picture. Thus, for instance, when Sunnis form militias to fight the Shias, the whole thing is about protect social (religious) interests, though deeper analysis reveals that there are political contests at play as well.
