Île de la Cité by Peter Turnley, Paris, 1975.
But if we define terrorism as the use of violence against civilians for political objectives, then the US state is the world’s leading terrorist. The powers that be in global society and that control the global political discourse attach the label ‘terrorist’ to violence that they do not approve of, and they attach the label of ‘freedom and democracy and security’ to violence that they do approve of, or that they commit themselves. Moreover, increasingly, ‘terrorism’ is used to simply describe political dissent, so that legitimate social movements and political struggles against global capitalism become labeled as ‘terrorism’ in order to justify their suppression.
