What is Terrorism? Part Two

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.
