Tuesday, August 02, 2016

ROME, Aug 02 (IPS) - The media are increasingly events in a basic manner, and have by and large abandoned the process of deep analysis. Now is the moment to focus our attention on terrorism. This topic be will remain a pressing issue for quite some time. We now know that terrorism has many causes, which can be rooted in religion to feelings of social xclusion and from a desire for glory to the actions of a damaged psyche. There is no way to fight against the unpredictable, and in mentally unstable minds emulation is an important factor.

In fact, until now, no act of terror has come from immigrants (except a mentally disturbed afghan). Yet, still, it is important to take into account that for every European killed, there are over 120 Arabs, who die because of ISIS.

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

ROME, Jul 26 (IPS) - A Chinese curse is "May you live in interesting times". That meant that too many events would disrupt the essential elements of harmony, on which the Chinese pantheon is based.
