For some right intentions do not always mean the right results.your impact may be different and harm the other person.or it could backfire and harm you which in good intended missions happen….have experienced both in the recent past…and it isn’t pretty good….we should all probably strive for a holistic view rather than believe things will fall into place with just the right intention…and not the hurt some responses of selfish others… … .but I have been burned by doing this too many times so now I have just learned to mind my own business. If it isn’t something that directly affects me or impacts me, then I have learned to keep my nose out of it. For most people even when you think that you have their best interests at heart they aren’t going to appreciate what you are trying to do for them anyway, so why even bother? most of the time you will just get chewed out so I have even stopped going to all of the trouble for nothing. I figure that if they need help they will ask, and if they don’t then I am better off keeping to myself.

Are terrorists human?

vbYes, they are but they kill humanity in inhumane ways.
It’s a mistake to simply label terrorists as “evil” or psychologically deranged – in fact, psychologists who have studied terrorist groups have found that terrorists tend to be stable individuals, not paranoid or delusional. What seems to make terrorists essentially different from others is their ability to “switch off” their sense of empathy in service to their beliefs and goals.
Empathy and compassion seem to be natural for human beings. It’s natural for us to feel for the sufferings of others, and to respond with a desire to alleviate their suffering. If you lack the ability to empathize, then it’s very likely that you could be diagnosed as a psychopath.
To become a terrorist means disengaging this natural empathy, so that a person can treat certain other human beings .. the members of the groups he feels he is fighting against …as objects, and kill them without remorse. It means seeing members of those groups as fundamentally “other” and refusing to connect with them. It is only a complete lack of empathy which makes it possible for one human being to behead another.
Terrorism is the symptom of a sick society; and like any competent doctor will tell you, the only way to get rid of a symptom is to treat the disease. Popping pain-killers will not cure you of the headache if it’s caused by a tumor in the brain. Just agonizing about how horrible the pain is will not make a whit of difference so far as the underlying tumor is concerned.
