Although "violence is an instrument used to secure a political objective" — whether it is to stop Hitler or invade Ukraine — the real reason behind the decapitation videos released by ISIS is not about securing an Islamic state but simply for the pleasure of killing people.

What was the point of these videos? Propaganda, perhaps. But consider this: in many of the videos, the cameraman narrated the moments before the blast with palpable excitement, panting and exclaiming as the explosion neared. It’s impossible to watch without concluding that those guys were enjoying what they did—that they were getting off on it. Videotaping a mass murder is not politics; it’s pornography.
