One example of this is the hysteria of McCarthyism in the 1950s. Many people are filled with fear of the Communists and accuse many innocent people. The accused must then say who else they know are involved, and this allows the hysteria to spread and leads to chaos. Another example of this in everyday life is terrorism. Many people in today’s society allow the extreme fear of a terrorist attack to control their actions and perceptions.
Media is focused on people marginalized in society due to race, ethnicity and sexuality. It is based on well-known stereotypes and reinforces them. Moral panic sends society into mass hysteria over an issue or an event that occurs. Stanley Cohen believed that media created a moral panic. Stanley had published a book on folk devils and moral panics (1972) which says that moral panic occurs due to people or groups become threats to society and interests.
It’s crazy how society takes more action on imaginary scenarios rather than real-life situations. The government is so scared of what the outcome of its decision will be that it doesn’t act in the most efficient ways. This is why the government isn’t always the best with following through with these executions. The CNN article claimed how from 1978-1995, there was a so-called “Unabomber” that was held responsible for a string of mail bombings, resulting in the deaths of three people and the injuries of many others. These bombings are classified as terror cases,
First of all, Islamists who use violence as a tool to achieve their political goals live in extreme political repression combined with extreme economic despair. Secondly, their interpretation of Islam is much distorted, meaning they have a very paranoid understanding about "the other" people. Islamists use two major propositions of Islam to justify their use of violence. The first is "the centrality of socioeconomic equity and justice and the second is the doctrine of jihad. The first principle is derived from the many Quranic verses and sayings of the Prophet Mohammed urging Muslims to struggle actively in the world for justice and social equity.
The target of terrorist is random; they attack both combatant and non-combatant or civilians. They attack people randomly because they do not have a specific target; they just want to terror the civilians and spread the feeling of fear and it is enough for them if people already fear. The example is the terrorists act in Bali in 2002, they do not see whether it is combatant or non-combatant, they attack both. The target of insurgent is the combatant. Combatant is like police, or army that can fight in a war.
Revolution nurtures a spirit of hatred, and therefore, retaliation within the people. This theme reoccurs in Les Misérables and A Tale of Two Cities as both authors investigate the nature of this hatred. According to Daniel Gordon, sovereignty should be significant in investigating how revolutions manifest. In its simplest form, the sovereign kings steal free will from its society leaving everyone else powerless (Gordon 3). Therefore, the citizens view the revolution with enthusiasm as citizens were rising up in revolt and overthrowing old aristocratic traditions (Glancy 4).
Muslims are also to blame for bringing terrorism to America and have gained so much power that they put fear in the citizens of victimized countries (Moore 1). The measure that criminals go to commit hate crimes is just devastating and harsh. These kinds of violence cause harm and strike fear in people not only in London but also places hearing of these horrific events. Nobody wants to be harassed or attacked for something that certain individuals in their culture did, and be stereotyped as that one
Winston’s job is to alter newspaper articles to suit the party’s current regime, to make outer party members believe that what the party is doing is accurate. This shows us that the party is lying and that they are changing history for their own benefit. Winston finds hard evidence of this but ends up throwing it down the “memory hole” where it was incinerated. The party’s main focus is to establish complete totalitarianism over Oceania and by doing this it will destroy any concept of freedom. Therefore any person, who commits these thought crimes against the party, will be vaporized.
Terrorism- As expressed throughout the above programs, political violence can come up in several different forms. While, mainly in the contemporary world, distinct forms of political violence are assumed compatible with terrorism, they are not. Only an angry crowd can practice violent expressions, riots, and protests. Nevertheless, it is more complex to state about killing, bombing, and kidnapping as well: repeatedly nationalist in origin, often anti- systematic, utilized both within countrywide limits and across them. It has gone under terrorism’s label many times and has made contributions to a sense of wavering out of all fractions to its material, as divergent to its representative importance (Laqueur 1999).
But seemingly innocuous offences snowball into more pernicious forms. Once speech reaches a Nazi-like extreme, it becomes too late to avert the dangerous consequences” (Heinze, Nineteen arguments for hate speech bans and against them). While hate speech flourishes and isn’t condemned by society, there will always be ways for the media to manipulate the opinions of the masses. Wars are fought against another culture or countries also political agendas like communism or religion, have also been at the fore of many a war. Enabled through the manufactured propaganda, fabricated crimes or whatever information justified their demise.
We need to also call out the media for confusing the public and causing mass terror. The media does more damage and cause mass terror than actual terrorists. they blow everything out proportion. they don 't actually show real news they twist everything for personal gain to increase views. We can 't make change if the news are biased.
