Does this legitimize terror when they are voted for?Democracy is a mere reflection of its voters. If its voters are terrorists, it is a reflection of terrorists.
I dont know where this came from. 'Ignorance' Im not sure you can just say that. You know unless you waltz in a study telling us which voters are more informed or better educated on the topic they are voting for. As far as I'm concerned the right (edit: 'new american right'?) is in political psychosis.Yes, the ideology of "Democracy" is at fault. Are you aware of massive voter ignorance that compute Democracy as Democratic Party? (I don't have time to elucidate)
Also, I'm not sure if terror is legitimately the result of another political psychosis, or whether it is because conditions and human insult have gotten so bad that terror is born as naturally as god desired.
Of course it is.In the eyes of its voters yes. But is terrorism ever a legitimate tactic?
"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."
Attacking civilians to coerce an occupying nation into withdrawal? It's hard for me to legitimize the attacking of innocent citizens in any way. Don't think I can.
Democracy in no way hampers terrorism -- if you want real-world examples, you can just look at the number of home-grown terrorists the US has, and how much death and destruction they've caused.
Democracy has essentially no bearing on the growth of terrorism -- even in a democracy, there will always be disenfranchised political groups, and so there will always be radical dissenters.
And radical dissent is only a short step away from flying a plane into a Kansas City post office.
