What is Terrorism? Part One

Terrorism - part one
What is Terrorism - part one
The term terrorism originated during the French Revolution from 1789, from the period of the Reign of Terror. Thousands of people were guillotined to enforce law and order on them by the authorities. The French radical politician, Robespierre, said 'terror is nothing but justice, prompt, severe and inflexible'. We must beware when politicians define terrorism; ask them for their political interests. They may be trying to manipulate you for their own ends to approve laws that prop up their powers but conflict with a free society and work against your personal freedom. Robespierre ordered mass arrests, torture and executions but finally fell prey to the guillotine himself.
