Terrorism is the cousin of war. It is meant to scar sometimes a whole nation. Not committed by sheer pleasure, it is done for a specific reason. In many cases that reason differs, due to whatever the objective is. No matter the objective the attack will be rather categorical. Whether it is genocide, assassination, bombing, or even hacking into the “X Files”. But when it comes to the query of putting terrorism to sleep, we find ourselves stumped. No worries readers, this document contains the map to fountain of answers we all soo crave to drink from. Warning the solutions that are proposed contain no violence.
To begin my list why don’t we travel back a few centuries to the publishment of the 13th amendment. For those who are now left dumbfounded due to their ignorance about the 13th amendment, it was the amendment that abolished slavery. African Americans during that time were filled to the brim with joy, knowing that they were exempted from being forced to perform physical labor past their bodys breaking point, knowing that they were finally going to be treated better than farm animals, knowing that they were now free African American citizens. But what they didn’t realize was that the war was far from over, that they just stepped out of the frying pan and into the fryer. White men and women constantly harassed the freemen. Ridiculing them to the point where they would retaliate and then have to take full responsibility for their actions with beatings from cops and even extremely long prison sentences.
Finally they discovered a way to beat the system. By surrendering even when they committed no wrong deed. This method wasn’t at all easy on the body, they had to withstand beatings and humiliation, however over a period of time it proved to be successful. They transformed their image from being savages to the defenceless. Thus receiving help and pity from others, strengthening their voice.This is the clever technique that we should adopt from our fellow brethren. Don’t get it twisted. I’m not saying bend over when the terrorist are near. The moral it to forgive and forget. To pretend as if nothing happened. Transforming the guilty’s image into a tyrant.
Now for solution dos. Renounce every trace of violence in your heart and your life. Adopt the wisdom and practice of active nonviolence, as Gandhi and Dr. King taught. Beg the God of peace for the gift of peace. Join your local peace and justice group. Stand up publicly for an end to war. Let your life be disrupted, and take a new, nonviolent risk for disarmament. Create new cells of active nonviolence. Embrace the religious roots of nonviolence. Study and teach the wisdom of nonviolence. Resist your local military and government violence. Stop business as usual, government as usual, media as usual, war as usual and demand peace, justice, and disarmament for the whole world, now. Announce the vision of a new nonviolent world, a disarmed world, a world without war, poverty, injustice or nuclear...
