Origins Of The Term Terrorism

The root of the word terrorism is taken from a Latin term that literally means "to frighten". It became part of the phrase "terror cimbricus", which was used by ancient Romans in 105BC to describe the panic that ensued as they prepared for an attack by a fierce warrior tribe. Many years later that fact was taken into account during the bloody reign of Maximilien Robespierre during the French Revolution.

This period of time was referred to as the Reign of Terror, largely in homage to "terror cimbricus". After nearly a year, the Terror came to an end and Robespierre was overthrown and executed. When it was over, people started to use the word terrorist to describe a person who abuses power through the threat of force. A journalist in the United Kingdom wrote about the Reign of Terror in The Times newspaper, and created the word terrorism as a way to describe the actions of Robespierre. The word became so popular it was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary three years later.

Crime Museum

Originally, "terrorism" was used to describe one who abuses political power through force.

Funny how government uses language once used to condemn itself in order to "terrorize" its own people and keep them in compliance.

so throwing tea in the sea is an act of terrorism


The definition of terrorism:-

Terrorism is a criminal act that influences an audience beyond the immediate victim.

So yes...........Throwing tea into the sea can be classed as terrorism in that instance. It was just a small part of the bigger picture.

The truth of the American Revolution is not convenient for a globalist oriented, corporate-socialist society which needs tyranny, centralization and propaganda to perpetuate itself.
Notice how in the last 30-40 years, the Founding Fathers have been transformed into Indian killing, slaveowning oppressors while men who increased Federal/Corporate tyranny are made into bigger mythological heroes(Webster, Clay, Lincoln, FDR)?
How a society views history is usually more indicative of that society's prejudices and or the will of its controllers than of actual historical events.

Of course the Boston Tea Party was a terrorist act acc to the British mercantilist government and the Tea Company. It was a heroic act of protest by those whom the above oppressed.

The federal government and the corporatocracy that influences it are much more similar to the British centralized system than to what the US Constitution intends. The American people have enabled our government to become the exact same thing the Founders rebelled against.

If we do not change this situation, we are not only failures, but traitors and cowards.

Did you even read the article, did you even graduate from high school? You seem very ignorant to not being able to place the paragraph as stated in the lesson plan within the context of sarcasm/reporting an historical even from another point of view, as they do teach in history classes. Typical knee-jerk reaction of the spew of paranoia and foam from the mouths of the conspiratorial ignorant I see in the comments above. Stay in school children.

Actually the tea was dumped because Britain stopped the colonies from printing their own money, which allowed the colonies to thrive but offered no valuable metals to tax for the king. Once they forced the colonies back on the gold standard they fell into a great depression with high prices and unemployment. THEN they did the tea massacre, it wasnt just in reaction to some overpriced tea. It was a reaction to financial terrorism being applied to the colonies, Britain forcing them from a prosperous situation that benefited the people into a hopeless depression that benefited british royalty.

Its not terrorism when tyrants are involved.

George III was not a "Tyrant" in the true sense of the word. He was in fact mentally ill.

Correct.

Even more, I can't see why anyone cares. If you want your kids taught a certain way, teach them yourself. That's what is called "parenting".

So by depicting the original Tea Party as terrorists, they hope to correlate the new label to today's Tea Party.

Low.

What's new. I have found that half the history I learned about in school was fabricated by the upper levels of society all along. If something interferes with perception of the time than it has been changed. They used to call it propaganda and conditioning back when I was young. Does anyone think that they are going to change this policy? Some of this practice was good, some was bad, all of it was a lie. I see a shutdown of the internet coming in the future, people are screwing with their ability to deceive us or control us. Not all of the control is bad though, some of it is supposed to be incorporated into society. I see a collapse of our society as immanent in the near future. People are more for themselves than loyal to a country and this is just getting worse. Morality is declining as more and more people are living for the moment without concern of the future. The net is causing a big problem for many countries in the world, I see something bad in our near future.

So who is really behind this new conditioning and what is the real reasoning behind implementing it?

They can now change history across the world instantly with the computers they use, what you knew yesterday may not be real today. Text written on the net can all be changed by those who have great power in this country, books are bad, evidence is always a problem. That is why the schools need the books turned in.

That doesnt make any sense. It doesnt matter if its your fault or not because you had a syphilitic brain or whatever, youre still a tyrant.

1.a sovereign or other ruler who uses power oppressively or unjustly.
2.
any person in a position of authority who exercises power oppressively or despotically.
3.
a tyrannical or compulsory influence.
4.
an absolute ruler, especially one in ancient Greece or Sicily.

I would argue that most of the evil people throughout history are psychopathic, and science says that 1% of the population is born with psychopathic tendencies. It doesnt matter if its your fault or not, your still a psychopath just as it doesnt matter if your brain is messed up, your still a tyrant if you practice tyranny.

Like if coffee were to go to $10.00 a cup today.
"But it was private property!" (of the state-sponsored corporation - British East India Company)


Uhhhh.... coffee is over $5 and I don't see anyone rebeling. They just pay, even daily for their coffee fix.

Go to Starbucks... drinks over $5. I know, I buy them for my gf all the time.

Mental Illness stops the brain from thinking "Rationally" In other words actions of a mentally ill individual can be totally different from a sane person..

Adolf Hitler was mentally Ill. If he had been sane WW II may never have happened.

Strange, This false version of history is one that to me i would be more likely to see in a calif school with all the weird liberals in calif.

The two biggest school systems in the US are Texas and Calif and most school books are written for one of the two states and other states are forced to pick the one version they want or pay millions for there own version.

Today's Tea Party is the anti-thesis of the Boston Tea Party.

The Boston TP was protesting a corporate tax cut
Todays TP screams for corporate tax cuts.

Significance of the Tea Act, 1773


It is important to understand that the Tea Act actually placed no new tax on tea. Instead it simply gave a tax break to the East India Tea company.

The new measure was also supposed to win the minds of tea consumers in America by driving down the market price of tea. But in the situation already aggravated by the previous heavy-handed tax measures, this obvious economic benefit was overlooked by the population and the new law was regarded at “Taxation without representation”.

The Tea Act taxed the tea at source (i.e. in India) so there was no tax collection in the colonies. The act allowed the tea to go directly to America instead of having to be imported to Britain and then re-exported to the colonies. This made the tea 9d per lb cheaper, even with the 3d tax. It also allowed the East India Company to sell the tea exclusively to chosen merchants (consignees) in the American colonies. This established monopolies in America and offended colonial merchants.

Every student is taught a false version of history, only the teachers don't know any better because they were taught the lie also. We are taught what the Illuminati want us to be taught, it's all BS.

History = BS.
Biology = important information withheld (no mention of biological transmutation)
Physics = BS.
Health = BS.
Math = important information withheld (sacred geometry).
Geometry = important information withheld (geomancy)
Government = BS.
Economics = BS.
etc.
