I just reread this and something popped into my mind. Street gangs that actively recruit young teens are also just like this. The kids are usually poor, many virtually uneducated, and have known nothing but violence their entire lives. They are easily recruited into the ranks knowing that death and definitely pain are awaiting them but join non the less. I guess we kind of have a form of the taliban "non religious" in our own back yard.
