The best way to counter terrorism is by confronting the cause. I believe the root cause of terrorism are the fundamentally exploitative and abusive international policies of the USA. Namely - the policy of Global Dominance.
I wish for the USA to do away with this policy of economic dominance. Do away with the mentality of dominance at all levels.
I wish for people to live with each other harmoniously. I wish for people to live cooperatively and consensually with each other.
I believe that terrorism largely amounts to blowback from unjust economic policies and practices.
True security can be found through policies of cooperation and generosity, and mutual respect for the dignity and well-being of others - respect for the dignity of all people.
