Terrorism (and the psychology of resistance)
Jun 05, 2017, 00:11
I skimmed the thread on the London attacks and it didn't seem like this article would suit the mood; so I figured I'd post it separately.

Like much of Fintan O'Toole's writing, which I often disagree with myself, this is likely to prove controversial and provoke a hostile reaction in some (I'm always amazed that such a conservative paper as The Irish Times would employ him -- that paper is very much the voice of The Establishment over here). Anyway I think it's a thought-provoking piece and worth a read for those with an interest:

Terrorism is becoming normal, and that will be its undoing

Incidentally, I personally don't actually read much politics in that article; and what politics there is -- isn't the interesting part. It's the psychology... the notion that ultimately this form of violence is self-defeating, by definition.

As I say; just thought it was an interesting perspective.
