Some discussion starters:

1. It is apparent that the Atreides are heading into a trap--and that they know it to be a trap--and yet they go anyway; why do they follow this dangerous course that could very well lead to their destruction?

2. Think of all the groups involved in the story to this point--the Atreides, the Harkonnen, Bene Gesserit--and to a lesser extent, the loosely associated groups (the Emperor, Landsraad, the Spacing Guild, CHOAM, the Mentats, etc...)--what could be the inspiration for these groups?

First> I think it's because of wealth of Spice which could be found in the deserts, and maybe Leto had no other choice but to obey Padishah!

Second> Herbert's character and words are extremely inspired from Middle-East in main, for example Lisan al Qeib or mahdi which are Shiat facts. and spice for oil maybe!?
But i need to go through more to get to the bottom line of it.
