People who want to support non-violent action do not seek to reject or eliminate power. "Instead, they recognize that power is inherent in practically all social and political relationships and that its control is the basic problem in political theory and in political reality. They also see that it is necessary to wield power in order to control the power threatening political groups or regimes. "7 "Power grows out the barrel of the gun. " A government system is dependant in the people's good will, decision and support. Political power is very fragile.
Strikes, boycotts, sit-ins, teach-ins, petitioning, fasting, marching, demonstrations, institutions and occupation are only the new forms of non-violent action that has been used all around the world. These techniques and ways were used to fight for civil rights, national liberation, better living conditions and fundamental changes. The Economic consequences of terrorism have a major impact in our world today. A perfect example of this is; on the morning of Tuesday 11, September 2001, United States was hit by a set of terrorist's attacks that caused a lot of damage and killed many people.
Crisis management played a key role after September 11th attack. They had to build up their confidence, secure the financial system and avoid emotions or depression. In reaction to the attacks, the Insurance industry raised its premiums, reduced coverage and involved the governments to step in and cover risks. Stricter border controls, could be very serious to economic consequences. The disruption in the transportation system following the attacks have posed great importance to open borders for daily operations of manufacturing companies, especially in the US- Canadian border.
The right balance between efficiency and security need to be accomplished. Public spending on security will cost the economy very much. Anti- terrorism spending should be considered even the costs and benefits. In addition, tighter security may reduce level of productivity. For instance, lengthen the waiting times in airports and employ more security. Insurance rates have risen from low levels. The hikes in insurance premiums have hit several industries.
The strongest impact has been aviation, but other sectors, including transportation, construction, tourism and energy generation have also been affected. Overall, it is estimated that commercial and liability insurance may have worldwide effects that its coverage has been reduced. The increase in higher security spending could have great effects in the long run. The impact of military spending on economic growth has been the topic of theoretical and empirical research. The impact in developing countries of the attacks is major fallout.
The widening of bonds spread, prices become higher and the currency becomes lowers worth that the effects all the markets. For security reasons, visa requirements, and control of legal immigration have started to be tightened in advanced countries. 8 This has the potential to lower the number in developing country workers employed abroad. The cost of trading has increased greatly. Shipping costs vary widely, depends on the origin and destination. Small increases on trade have a strong impact on trade. Environmentally, after the September attack there were several effects on the environment.
For instance, the airborne debris contains harmful particles such as asbestos, the runoff of water will have contaminants and eventually become undrinkable. An environmental health concern and the WTC is the potential; breathable hazardous gases and tainted water. Gas emissions levels increased drastically which can cause global warming. The after effect of water supplies, public health, agriculture and industrial production. Oil and gas plays a dominant role in the effects. They can be exploded and won't supply any water running.
This can lead to a disaster. Terrorism threatens society by instilling fear and helplessness in its citizens. It looks to control a government or society hostage by fear so they can get what they want. When a terrorist act occurs, people look for many ways to cope with stress and drama that its happening. Trying to cope with this can be very hard and sets off a chain of emotions like fear, helplessness, vulnerability and grief. Xenophobia (fear or hatred of strangers of foreigners) can develop in these people who are affected.
The fear generated by terrorism can aggravate the population and open doors for unity and strength. Psychologists have worked with victims or terrorism in Israel, Latin America, and the United States. Peacekeeping and the UN, to prevent chaos. Anarchy was breaking out when the Taliban withdrew, and Afghanistan's government and the international community agreed to some kind of international military presence was needed to build security. In December 2001, the UN sponsored a meeting to meet with Afghan political leaders in Bonn, Germany and establish a force around Kabul. The U.
N security Assistance Force was sent to Kabul to protect their city. This is how the U. N works and is trying to involve every country for peacekeeping within our world. If everyone is involved in this, it potentially can limit terrorism. In conclusion, the solution to darkness lies in the bringing of the light. The solution to crime lies in creating an insurmountable strength of harmony, positivism and coherence in the world consciousness. It begins with us to embrace peace and use the human mind to enliven the intelligence at the basis at nature and generate waves throughout everyone.
How serious is the problem of terrorism and how far should the governments being prepared to go in dealing with it? What causes terrorism, and what is feeding its growth? Is terrorism morally justified? What does this tell you about the moral state of society, generally? All these issues are examined and addressed throughout this essay. The whole point of terrorism, in short, is that it must not be ignored, and in that sense the overreaction of the press, public and governments. If this is an age of terror, then it has become all the more important of understanding terrorism now.
