I actually wrote this in response to another thread, but, at the risk of sounding arrogant, I think it is something that people should read and think
about, so I am pasting it in its own thread:
Think about it like this: When did the term "terrorist" really become commonplace in the american vernacular? Right after 9/11. Yes it was heard
before, but that word has been completely sensationalized, and turned into the type of word that provokes an emotional response from most people,
because of what they associate it with.
Now consider that if you can find a reason to call anyone and everyone a terrorist, it open a pretty ugly can of worms. When neighbours fear each
other, they hurt each other, either through lack of help, lack of "neighborliness:, or direct hurtful acts. If you were convinced your neighbor was a
terrorist, what would you do? Turn himi in? Attack him?
When you have a population of neighbours that fear each other, then they are already divided.
All that is left is to conquer.
