    OK...revised...

    In my opinion...this was plain and simple an idiotic endeavor. Done and done.

    As I said, the same could be said for a school shoot 'em up.

    I'd be curious to know if the people who find little wrong with the teachers assignment to plot to kill as many people as possible to get their political message across, are the same people who oppose teaching sex education in public schools.

    I doubt anyone can really get the context of this from the article posted.
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    Sorry; there is no difference.
    do you really think that a school assignment is going to trigger students into becoming terrorists?

    To have them plan a terrorist attack on paper, think it through? How could it not?

    Where did I say that?

    and i'm sure this'll be a major impact on their psyche, much more than any of the movies or crap TV shows about terrorism that come out of Hollywood.

    Where did I say that?
    you agreed with maggie's statement that the planning of a terrorist attack is the same as planning rape, so therefore the actions of raping and terrorism must be equivalent too, otherwise how could they be equivalent?

    When did I say that? Never.

    Nor would an assignment to plan out a school shooting trigger students to shoot up their school. But it could make them more aware.
