After a terrorist attack of any kind there are always consequences that must be faced. Sometimes the point of the terrorist attacks is because the organization wished to send a message or to influence policy in their favor. However, after the 9/11 attacks administrators realized that the United States was not prepared for a tragedy of this kind and had little to no measures to prevent one, this lead them to create new programs and policies. Terrorist organization’s goal often comes down to one of the following: regime change, territorial change, policy change, social control and status quo maintenance. The main purpose of a terror attack may well be to influence public policy.
Abstract Domestic terrorism is defined as committing criminal terrorist acts in the individual’s own country against other human life. Such acts are intended to coerce or intimidate the civilian population, influence the policies in government, or affect the conduct of the country through assassination, kidnapping, and mass destruction. These acts occur primarily in the United States (White House Briefing Room Statements and Releases, 2021). These acts can be done because of an ideology or political, religious, and racial reasons.
In this paper I will present my definition of violence. Everyone has their own ideas of what violences includes. Some think it is more specific and direct, and others think it can be very broad and wide ranging. Most people will define it as a person’s physical act, yet others think the weather can be violent. I will also talk about the heinous crimes of Andre Thomas.
The world today is facing a crisis and there seems to be no resolution in sight. The war on terrorism has been going on for many, many years and it appears as if the leaders of the world are baffled as to stop it or if nothing else, control it. Many scholars have a difficult time attempting to define a good definition for the word terrorism. Many believe it is a difficult word to define because there are so many interruptions to the word. It will depend on what part of the country one is in, but for the universal approach to the definition many believe terrorism is “the use of violence and threats to intimidate or coerce esp for political purposes” (Dyson, 2012, p. 19).
Department of homeland security and Domestic Terrorism One of the major reasons why defining domestic terrorism has proved difficult is because different agencies approach terrorism with their different interpretations (White, 2013). The difference between the various definitions of domestic terrorism lies within the various descriptions given about terrorists’ motivations. White (2013) classified domestic terrorism as either those that are politically motivated or others that attempt greater specificity. It is however difficult to establish and define the motivations of terrorists. It is therefore necessary do in-depth analysis on terrorists’ motivation because their purpose reflects the methods and targets the terrorists are most likely to select.
The term terrorism is inextricably intertwined with the notion of foreign actors unleashing widespread disaster on American soil. This notion is not unfounded and carries a very real and very dangerous threat to the US. While the US must of course be constantly vigilant with regard to the threat of an attack emanating from a foreign land, the US must also consider an equally dangerous threat that lurks in our own backyard: the domestic terrorist. Make no mistake, the use of the word domestic should by no means diminish, and should in no way normalize the malevolency these groups perpetuate. One is tempted to limit one’s thinking regarding domestic terrorism to the latest news story and how that may affect the US in the here and now.
In Western society today, one of the most misconstrued topics that is discussed in the news is terrorism. The Criminal Code of Canada defines terrorism as, “an act committed, in whole or in part, for a political, religious or ideological purpose, objective or cause with the intention of intimidating the public” (Government of Canada, 2015). Despite the clarity of this definition, the general North American population has misconceived the usage of this word, and instead, labels acts of terror as different – and often, less harsh – words. This error is especially prevalent in the United States, where political leaders now lead the country into believing that terrorism is exclusive to Islam. This ideology continues into Canada as more people question,
In the novel Violence by Slavoj Zizek, he discusses two types of violence. The two types of violence are “subjective” violence and “objective” violence. In his novel he defines “subjective” violence as a form of murders, thefts, crime, terror, etc. As for “objective” violence it is violence in the form of hate-speech, racism, discrimination, and so on. Zizek’s definition of violence is not the common definition that is commonly used today but rather his definition exhibits a sense of importance and significance.
The question mark and separate location would represent an important uncertainty about political activism, which we understand as legal and non-violent political protest or political action. It is beyond the scope of the present article to explore whether or how often activism leads to radicalization, that is, how often legal and non-violent political action leads on to illegal and violent political action. We expect that the answer will differ for different groups, different decades, and different cultures. Note also that the pyramid does not imply a stage theory, which would require that every trajectory to terrorism must start at the base of the pyramid and rise through each intervening level in order to reach terrorism at the apex. Note that, in the pyramid model, the volcanic "magma pipe" of radicals/terrorists reaches down even into the neutral population.

Springer (2009) believes that violence is a gross stereotype which is associated with the depiction of the culture in the context of 'war in terror '. African, Asian and Islamic cultures are said to be highly violent. Thus, any discourse that suggests violence should be viewed as contextually specific, because it is bound to particular places in which the culture of violence is formed. Therefore,
This course of action similarly enhances tension between idealistic Muslims who continue to stay devoted to their religion, and hence find a means to project that through radicalized courses of actions. The product of conflict is danger to entirety of the group involved, and hence it is best to find sympathy and solidarity between the oppressed and
Tourism can be considered one of the most significant economic and social phenomena of the twentieth and twenty-first century. The evolving of the tourist’s behavior has triggered a series of changes in the way of operating the tourism businesses.
