I was thinking - we're overwhelmed with fear from terror, however in reality it's statistically more likely to be killed with lightning then by
My question is: Why media, governments, agencies are always talking about possible threat from terrorism - you see it every day red alerts fancy "war
on terror" graphics on CNN etc, why? Why are the anti-terror agencies not working silently behind the scenes? What is the gain to tell these things
to the public?
Fear breeds revenge, hate, prejudice, arrogance, envy, greed and uncovers worst of all instincts & we are manipulated folks.
Face it: In mind of Average Joe, muslim = terrorist with dynamites
In my opinion mainly media (trying to have best ratings) are responsible for this, you see/read it every day, it's so easy to blindly fuel our fear
with terrorism threat.
Doing this hype is also extremely useful to push political agenda.
Of course we're not talking about problems with starvation, pollution, etc., heey
this is more interesting!
My take - yes of course they're are terrorist, however the threat is exagerrated and I am not so sure if we (West) are not generating more and more
terrorists with our current actions e.g.(Israel/Lebanon conflict).
What do you think?
Thanks for comments.
