When you compose a post, there is a button for "IMAGE." You provide the image's URL, and it is placed inside img tags.

Please use discretion when posting images.

No. You must have the image hosted somewhere and link to it using its URL.

And please don't hijack posts in the future. Post your questions in new topics in the appropriate forum.

I suppose behind violence (wrapped in Terrorism) two factors work:

1- Fanaticism: Tinctured fanaticism in every bit of blood, that makes no U
turn to terrorist to be back Humane.
2- Money: Poverty and the feeling that their life may be worth bunch of bucks
that could ease lives of their family members in the sacrifice of one life.

That reminded me of an article I recently read - A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE by Steven Pinker.

In other words, the content and technique of Victorian age religious, educational, and political indoctrinization promoted by the Establishment is what transformed society from savagery.

The loss of confidence in those values and their own authority by leaders of the Establishment in the face of political attacks against it in the 1960s -- explains why the streets of London and other cities are so much less safe than they were back in the 1950s.

For some reason, I don't think Plinker's views are going to be widely disseminated.

I feel sad because when I was little like many children my age who had gone astray from the path of righteousness and turned to the devil for solace, I would sometimes hurt small animals like ants and other insects for no apparent reason other than the sick thrill it gave me. focusing the rays of the sun with a magnifying glass onto slow moving insects would provide me hours of sick pleasure, this pleasure was only surpassed by breaking up ant colonies by jumping all over them at the school playground where looking for them was an enjoyable pastime. throwing pebbles at stray dogs with my evil cousin and then laughing when the dog squalled out of pain. i feel terrible about all this stuff now

I remember this debate coming up many many years ago. Of course, the implication was that the violence didn't exist to that degree in the past.

From that debate, I recall that a good counter argument -- that the violence always existed -- was a song by Billy Joel.

Voilence exists as

Home Voilence
Terrorists ( this is global now)
- terrorist for cause of their religion
- seperatist (who wants their own identity like jerusulam,kashmir,tibet)
Anti Social Elements ( Whoc connot operate and co exist with society they want short cuts easy money cannot work hard)
Physco Who are out of their minds for various reasons and target easy prey like Woman and children

There could be more

Each of them have been increasing year over year. And these have to do with the way human beings live socially(Money ,religion,relation ships). The reason they are growing Humans are making their life process lot Complex,
They are addicted to religion they themselves have created
Money and resources are reason for seperatist
exposure of children to Pornography,Sex,Crime through different Media is creatign physcos and Anti social elements

While each scientific invention is having merits its also having devastating effects what if nuclear technology goes to hands of terrorist,what if genetic engineering were used in wrong way, what if terrorist hijacked a country nuclear arsenal control house
