Reader comment on item: How to End Terrorism:

Submitted by trans-parere (Canada), Dec 5, 2006 at 19:07

Good points, and I think most non Muslim governments have begun to initiate something along these lines of thought. Governments however must also battle against their own extreme social deviants whos goal is to corrupt or fracture the existing democratic experience to either turning back the clock to an earlier more glorified authoritive existance(?) or to extend the influence of socialism in democracy and capitalism.

I am of course using Russia here to detail the switch from a communist society to one of democracy(?) and free market economics(?). And what appears to me to be a shifting of social expression by the implementation of more authoritarian principles. Also including the general shift by world democracies to selectively choose particular social rights or freedoms to curtail in the name of national security and public safety in response to terrorism.

It took 70 years for the democratic nations to help bring about change to communist Russia.
It will be a great challenge for democracies to re-enforce their democratic principles and laws protecting the rights and freedoms of the individual in regards to the Muslim assault from with in, while trying to educate the world Muslim population to the benefits of democracy and the rights of the individual as a concerted international foreign policy of sorts.

Europe, a union of independent states is very much not unified in regards to its effort to deal with world terrorism or those Islamic states known to support world terrorist organization. Britain, France, Germany, Spain, etc, are pursuing their own interest in this matter and the rest of the world is hardly unified as to strategy or specific action. I fear the price will have to become much greater before all democracies unite in the face of world terrorism and the advance of radical Islamism. For now it seems to be every man for himself.
