we try to stop terrorism, but we still got terrorists here livin’ in the USA, the big CIA, The Bloods, and The Crips, and the KKK.” This verse, specifically, is very interesting. “Where is the Love” was released in 2003; post 9/11. The events that occurred on 9/11 were very gruesome for the United States. The lyrics emphasises the evil that is terrorism, and how the U.S is sending troops overseas to stop the terrorism in other countries even though there are still terrorists that still reside in the U.S.

After almost a year of terror, the trials were over. Over twenty innocent lives were lost. Those who were not the same as everyone else were given the title of a witch. Instead of being accepted as individuals, they were ousted, persecuted, and some executed.
Terrorists have always been a threat to this great nation, but the events that occurred in Washington D.C. and New York on that fateful day showed many Americans the reality of what terrorists are capable of. Even though the hijackers on 9/11 had entered the country legally, albeit under less stringent immigration laws, the fear that other terrorists might possibly be exploiting weaknesses in our border security is ever present. While many people fear these terrorists entering into our country from the south, Alan Bersin, former Commissioner of The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency, says that the biggest threat actually comes from the north. In 2011, Bersin told reporters that the CBP “has recorded more cases of people with suspected terrorist backgrounds or links to terror organizations entering the U.S. from Canada than from Mexico.” (Mora).

The speech talks as well about the issue of power that is closely connected to the construction of the single story. The stories have been used to expropriate and label, but can also be used to empower and humanize. Accordingly, Adichie says, many stories matter, but we cannot know every story. However, we are
According to The Economist, “Even if you allow, as many will not, that torture might be justified under extreme circumstances, it would be difficult to confine its use to those very rare cases.” The essence of The Economists argument is that the U.S. makes cases like this extremely difficult to allow. Torture tactics have been used before and results weren’t pretty. This past year information from C.I.A. leaked and went public. What was discovered from it was the brutal and cruel torture tactics that were done to assumed terrorists.
According to the FBI, 28 hate crimes committed in 2000 were found to be anti-Islamic”(Villemez). The outlook on the entire race is very bleak in comparison to what it was previous to 9/11.

Democracy spreading in the Middle East is counterintuitive and according to Mike, it does no benefits to intervene any longer. He believes that intervening in other countries problems, motivates a sensitive group, the Muslims all around the globe, into triggering unfortunate actions like shooting up a nightclub. Why he believes this concept, is explained through six notions; U.S. support of Israel, support of dictatorship in the Middle East, inhabiting of the Arabian Peninsula, Israelis escalating, reliance on inexpensive oil, military presence in other countries in the “Muslim world”, and lastly, our unfair disposition to categorize as terrorist, any Muslim population that one of our allies (Russia or China) dislikes. Above all else, the self-appointed duty of America, as the democratic police of the world, has ironically become our Achilles
William Golding, who is the award winning author of the novel Lord of the Flies adventures through the idea of savagery throughout his writing.
