Why terrorists aren’t ‘evil’


Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 10 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 10 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve just posted Why terrorists aren’t ‘evil’ over on Gazette Communities. It’s an extensively reworked and updated version of this post from 2005. Those with a copy of my book will also find a copy of the original post on pages 173 to 174. Those without the book can buy a pre-publication copy via this page, or will shortly be able to get hold of it from all good bookshops – including sjhoward.co.uk/shop. How much promotion can I fit in one tiny post?
