In the absence of a state that provides basic order, social stability, a predictable continuity of life, people look to other modes of organization to fulfill some of that role. In totalitarian Iraq, the only other mode that could have even the slightest freedom was the religious. But in general, I think it’s fair to say that religion is the most common default source of organization and support in times of dislocation and collapse of governing structures.
