Few activities have as far reaching economic impact as war. And, while war can be carried out in several ways, few can be more devastating to the well being of a people as terrorism. This post will explore terrorism, and so I apologize in advance for the downbeat tone.
In today’s world, acts of terrorism are spread so widely, that it is possible for the various acts to be either
- completely separate,
- several pockets of individual groups’ attacks, or
- largely instigated by a single central authority or philosophy.
While most people would consider terrorism as being made up only of violent, planned activity, this need not be the case.
