If you recall, about 5 months ago, I joined Destiny (Steven Bonnell) during his live stream. He invited me back for another discussion. The genesis was a conversation I wanted to have about why we are not seeing terrorism in the West during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Have a listen! It’s about 45 minutes in lenght. Wide-ranging topics, I’m sure you’ll love it!
Listen to my previous discussion with Destiny
A better understanding of terrorism requires that we look at a much wider set of information, like foreign affairs and foreign policy.
When it comes to talking about terrorism it is not enough to limit the discussion to specific terrorist groups or terrorist acts. Things are much more complicated than that.
Terrorism does not occur in a vacuum: it exists in a context (or better: multiple contexts). Terrorism happens when multiple players make multiple moves on multiple chessboards: some of these moves provide terrorists with incentives.
