10. Terrorism is sacrosanct and holds the absolute highest position of fear.
This is why the war on terror is so fucked up. By elevating terrorism to something greater than other crimes and murders, we are setting ourselves up for the psychological and nationalistic response. As always, the particular crime of terrorism isn't treated as an actual crime, but as a war. It is holy and USA Inc. loves for us all to shiver with fear.

When the next hit comes, we will all be ready for more war and less civil liberties.
