as this is really going nowhere I suggest I'll refrain.
whatever you dig, "mate"
Nice of you to "refrain" since the dictionary you so arrogantly suggested I get, doesn't have "terrist" has a word. That must have hurt a bit. So... maybe I'm not the one who needs a dictionary.
Thanks for giving up and further humiliate yourself over something as simple as a word.
EDIT: And please, may I suggest you stop with the "mate" also? Cause it seems like you've just discovered another new word. (mate exists in Merriam-Webster btw, just in case you just found it out)
cheers mate.edit on 4-5-2012 by Outofcontrol because: (no reason given)

I think that terrorist is the wrong word to use, but I completely agree with what he is saying.
Kaku knows that we eventually will have to form a "one world government" in order to step out into the stars......but some people will be against it even if it is for the best of mankind.
If anyone saw him on Faux News explaining the death of the birds a couple of years ago, when he was asked "Why the mass bird die offs"???

Michu- "Yes masters, I'll say whatever you want me to say on camera, thank you for this fake money. I will say whatever you need me to masters, thank you, thank you, snarf snarf."
He is definately a First Class shill all the way. I wouldnt believe anything he says.

He is right. A world government is the next step for humanity to move up the ranks. If good people were controlling it at least. Terrorist wasn't the right word to use since it has such a horrible context socially.
Have you looked at the US government lately? No thanks.

We have a United States of America, why not a United States of the World?

What are they planning for us?
There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always — do not forget this, Winston — always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.
You people that think you know it all really annoy those of us who do.

Mate... "terrist" isnt even a word...
Whats that all about? "Terrist"?
A terrist is a radical environmentalist or a self-proclaimed green anarchist who sees her or him self as heroically defending the Earth, or "Terra" (Latin), from humans or other forces acting through humans - typically ideologies or technologies, which they see as out of control. They may or may not profess the 'Earth immune system' ideology of Gaians.
There is so far no openly stated ideology called "terrism". That may be deliberate, as terrists usually see it as unnecessary to discuss, explain or agree. Instead they act.
Many terrists oppose capitalism as inherently dirty and destructive of the natural world. Others view technology as the enemy, and some state that they seek human extinction, e.g. through suicide, cannibalism, abortion, euthanasia, and other means. A notable group of this sort is the Church of Euthanasia. Some consider the Anarchist Golfing Association to also be taking a basically terrist position, as they offer a relatively weak rationale for attacking the game of golf, itself a symbol of what they oppose. Both groups might also reasonably be called situationist.
Critics of such groups often consider them insincere or mentally unbalanced, and believe that extreme goals and visible actions are nothing but a publicity stunt. As evidence they point to the fact that the term "terrist" was openly coined in deliberate mockery of the term terrorist, which is sometimes pronounced (especially with certain American accents) as "terrist". A web search will verify that this is the most common use.
Radical environmentalists don't usually openly state that they are terrists, but seek some socially acceptable rationale for their actions. As with the word "terrorist", if someone says they are a terrist, they probably aren't, but are just seeking publicity.
Terrist is also an alternative name for Terrans - as defined by Dr. Hugo De Garis in opposition to what he calls Cosmists - taking opposing and irreconcilable positions on whether humans should attempt to develop artificial intelligence. This debate is so far confined to specialized professional circles and has generally not been addressed in public policy.
Other than taking a strong active position for biosecurity and being willing to break laws to advance their aims, there seems to be no program common to all terrists - and no single authority on their objectives.
Controversial usage of the term to describe Greenpeace or Sea Shepherd activists, Gaians, or others in the Green Movement, is generally not welcomed by those groups, who differentiate very carefully and deliberately between themselves and groups deliberately destroying property.
Terraist (L. terra, "Earth" + "ist")
1 A person who loves the Earth and its natural wonders.
1 The terraists were out watching the sunrise and bird-watching again this morning.
2 Terraists around the world are united in a wish to prevent the destruction of the natural environment.
