Terrorism is a lame game, unless you’re the Government

I was mulling over the ineffectiveness of the latest terrorist atrocity and it occured to me that none of those that I had lived through had ever achieved much.

I looked up wiki and found this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_terrorist_incidents

The point is that terrrists kill loads of plebs and all they get is some publicity.

Nothing changes.

Sorry!  correction. None of their alleged objectives are ever achieved.

Who remembers the Baader-Meinhof (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baader-Meinhof_%28disambiguation%29), or their aims?

Of course, we all remember 9-11. We don’t have World Sharia and probably never will.

However, we do have a whole raft of legislation, which has destroyed hard won democratic freedoms.

The new authoritarian regimes, emerging globally, have taken advantage of Islamic terrorism to push through legislation, which implements Monetarist policies to enrich the rich and pauperise the poor.

They Occupy movements, arising to oppose them, is weakening, as they are isolated, subverted and smothered by the Media.

In the U.S.A., where the revolutionary spirit versus crass greed has the greatest polarisation of the two camps, the Occupy movement is talking of more active opposition, there is a danger of breakaway groups moving towards terrorist acts.

This would be sad, if it were to happen, as it would only strengthen the hand of those who wish to legally turn The USA into an oligarchy and tear up their Constitution.

In fact just as Hitler had The Reichstag burned down to destroy the Communist opposition, it would be conceivable for the Republican hierarchy to instigate and fund such a faction.

Terrorism only works, when it is employed by those in power e.g. Hitler, Stalin, Pinochet, Kim Jong-il.

The only effective counter to such forms of Government, where there is one identifiable key figure, is assassination. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_assassination

However our present threat has no such identifiable figure/s.  (the same problem faces those who want to impose Global Sharia)

The world leaders are merely pawns looking to feather their own nests, with little chance of joining the players.

The true key figures will only emerge a few decades from now, when we have no more ability to act than a six week old broiler hen.

On the bright side, a natural disaster could destroy civilisation and give a chance for democracy to re-emerge.

Even a Solar storm, wiping out much of our computer technology, could loosen the control of the Oligarch’s.

Sometimes I depress myself but I lighten up by remembering that I can’t read the future and there’s always the Devon Loch aspect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Devon_Loch)
