The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
Most interestingly, such conspiracy theories are most common in both far right and far left. Be it the theory that hitler's still alive, but lives in an alien base at south pole, or that 9/11 was an inside job...
Not to mention that this train of thoughts should also imply that so called islamofascists might just be islamophobes trying to damage the other side; A thought which makes little sense to me.
I believe it is time to accept that this terrorist was a conservative nationalist who tried to spread his ideas by instilling fear. That the government up there is clever enough to act in the opposite way, by increasing openness and democracy, only means that he utterly failed. Other governments, however, are not so clever; They would decrease freedom and break into privacy, increasing fear, hence only helping the terrorists to their goal.
