Terrorism has grown to become an important term during the past 40 years and this has been linked to certain groups using terrorism strategies to create chaos and mayhem among governments and the public. But terrorism has grown to develop different meanings among different people and even within government departments (Meisels). The severity and strategies of terrorisms have also changed in recent times with certain groups causing terror in public while others fighting certain groups and individuals and claiming it to be the fight for freedom.
Silencing those who suffer from structural violence and concealing their stories in order to spare those in power is the final characteristic of structural violence. According to Paul Farmer, “the poor are not only more likely to suffer; they are also more likely to have their suffering silenced” (25). By suppressing their suffering, the world is unable to understand the suffering that is taking place and therefore cannot put an end to such events. The rich will continue on with their lives while the poor will have to continue struggling and making ends meet by any means

National terrorism has been the focus of attention since September 11 (Haubrich, 2006). Unfortunately, domestic terrorism is now becoming increasingly common with hate groups around our nation. Domestic terrorism can be defined as violent acts that someone has committed in their own country against their fellow citizens and infrastructures. Some examples of violent acts include violent crimes, (murder, assault, and etc.) property crimes, and public order crimes. It can also be a crime against the state or federal government, like for example the attack on the World Trade Centers and the infamous Oklahoma City bombing.
These are often styled north and south because the division is geographic. Here is the greatest single problem and danger facing the world of the third millennium.” In this book review, I plan to talk about why it is geography is having an impact on poor people’s lives more than the rich such as how those living in disaster-vulnerable areas do not get as much help or improvements as a develop country would if struck by a catastrophe.

Immigrants face a great deal of hardship on coming to America. Many of these immigrants were on uneducated and fell into the trap of Robber Barons. During the Great Migration (1880-1921) about 56% of the immigrants migrated to the United States not knowing what to expect. Therefore, when coming to America many of the defenseless immigrants had to pay a price. “The shipping industry guarantee good profit, but they had to send their children which caused their family to be separated, this was because these immigrants did not have enough money to have them and their children going together” ( Morgan Prezi).
In Eduardo Porter’s work titled “The Danger From Low-Skilled Immigrants: Not Having Them,” he observes what low-skilled immigrants bring to the United States and what we would come to be without them. The United States is more dependent on low-skilled immigrants than it thinks; they are the behind the scenes doing the jobs you do not see, like picking crops and washing dishes at restaurants. They have bettered the lives of Americans not just by filling the employment hole, but also in the working field and academic field. In the work environment, a large number of people and businesses owe their success to low-skilled immigrants for their cheap labor, which heightens economic output. This group of people work for highly little money and the

However, According to “Immigration Surveillance”, “some sectors of the national economy would have been devastated without their labor” (Kalhan 42).

By flooding the labor market with droves of new arrivals, primarily unskilled and uneducated laborers, the wages and employment opportunities for current citizens drastically decrease as “A 10 percent increase in the size of an education/age group due to the entry of immigrants (both legal and illegal) reduces the wage of native-born men in that group by 3.7 percent and the wage of all native-born workers by 2.5 percent ($1,396)” (Borjas).
