What is Terrorism? Part Two
What is Terrorism?
Terrorism is the use of intimidation and violence, often
against innocent people, to impel change in society. Extreme actions can provoke
big effects, such as the Boston Tea Party, which led to the American War of
Independence and the world’s first major declaration of human rights. Yet rational endeavour, education and law change, although
slow work, make for greater and longer lasting changes in society. Violence is
noticed; quiet initiative seldom trumpeted.
