Growing In Vacuum -- Cause of Terrorism
Boooom!!!!!!!!!!!! Boooooooooommm!!! the bombs are now a days every where.. earlier we used to think they are targeting some countries from which they want something, but now they even started targeting their own lands.. own people...
Yes !! I'm Talking about terrorists and terrorism.... every debate i am hearing is about "Who" started it?? "Who" are they?? "Where " they come from?? "What" they want?? "How" to stop them??? "When" they can attack next??.. "How" to punish them..?? "Where" to find them?? One can see we are asking every kind of WH Questions expect WHY???
Why do they exist?
And i guess answer to that question may help in solving many problem..... and i am not saying this piece of blog with my thoughts will give the root cause, but yes if "Experts" in various threads of society come together and have healthy debate on the ground root problem, then yes definitely we will have root cause of this which will then may lead us to permanent solution.
Yes, A Permanent Solution for Terror!! whatever world is doing is not Stopping / Reducing terror but just 'Avoiding' it. neither force nor agreements between governments will solve this problem permanently. But most probably, or i would say certainly, demolishment of Root cause is the only solution. The problem is "WHAT IS THE ROOT CAUSE"???
first lets confirm what is terrorism??, and who are terrorists?? As per me Terrorists are those people who spread terror for their own REAL interest. having said that, though the visible interests may differ, the real interest is to grab 'importance'. To grab the position. The position which society has Denied them to get.
"Is terrorism a product of religion?"
i would say NO. there is terrorism / extremism in name of every religion on this earth..
"Is terrorism a product of religious Belief??"
I would again say NO.. whatever your belief is, psychologically it is not easy to become Terrorist. Just religious beliefs don't give you the courage to fight to get the desired thing.
"They Why only certain religions have more extremist groups than other???"
This is very interesting question. Take a simple example. There are two boys one is of Religion A and other is of B. There is One Apple left and both are hungry. There can be various scenarios possible
1) Both boys fight with each other, the one wins get entire Apple. and other boy remains Hungry.
2) Both the boys fight for apple. Both are equally strong. so finally Both share the apple. and both are happy.
3) Both the boys fight for it. As both are equally strong its difficult for any one to win. Suddenly one boy says This Apple is for sell. Since he knew other guy don't have money he remains hungry
Among all above cases the future results are different.. In case A, World War II happens. In case 2 European reunion happens and in case C seed for terrorism is planted. There is no relation of which religion you are from. You are just denied what is desired.
And hence According to me the major cause for terrorism is "Money". Rather denying the desired, just because one don't have money. In such cases, if there is no way to earn money to achieve what is desired, men choose alternative. Attitude is like "You don't give me because i don't have money?? hahaha i will still show you that i can get it". And in such situation if you alone cannot grab the desired, find the group of people who desire the same and try to achieve it, and that spreads the "Terror"!!
"So can we say the terrorism a byproduct of capitalism??"
Partly Yes. you can say it is byproduct of capitalism. But "Desiring" something is as natural as breathing. in above example of case 3, the situation bows seeds for terrorism. But after that the process of "Grouping" of alike minded people and thinking of "Action" and then actually acting accordingly takes lot from external forces.
But a single Force can stop this as soon as seed is bowed. Take example above, there are two possible endings, but the same startStart:
the boy will be first depressed. And then become angry that he don't have money.End I
: His mother tells him, Presently they are not rich because his dad lost his job. But if you try hard and take every good and honest efforts, one day will arrive, when you shall get enough money to buy entire farm of apples.End II
: His friend tells him, Presently they are not rich because his dad lost his job being from religion A. Even if you try hard and take every efforts, one day will arrive, you will be denied to eat apple because you are from Religion A.
This is the point and situation where the future of the boy "DECIDES". There can be separate debate why this day should be in the life so that he can buy an apple. but even after that the Direction that he gets decide the his and ultimately everyone of ours future.
So if we take a overview, More than Poverty, The root cause is the Direction given to jobless people. Or we can say a whole part of generation which is born after capitalist world is born. They have various temptations in present world like earlier, but now they are "AWARE" of tempting things and also aware that it is not possible to get it.
It just happen that some section of the society of same religion fall in lower income group and hence not getting Apple. But the Director (in this case leader of the respective group) should be responsible enough to use this opportunity to direct the crowd in "Competitive" and "Motivating" way rather than "Depressing", "Power oriented" way.
Yes!! here comes the point. This entire section of post-capitalist generation is lacking DIRECTION. And good direction can resolve this.
Now, still this is prime cause but not the root cause. now the question arise
"Who is the director? and when he will direct the crowd"
The truth is "You are the director". As you can see.. Everyone of this "extremist" category is growing in Vacuum and now there is no way we can pull them back on "Ground". But this society, that includes everyone, me and YOU, needs to make sure that no one is growing in "Thoughtless", "Directionless", "Aimless" vacuum anymore.
And to reduce vacuum, just be calm and quiet and help the person who is trying to remain on ground during his depressive days. always tell every one only one sentence of great Mr M.K. Gandhi "Eye for an Eye will leave world Blind"
