HERE IS THE SECRET TO STOPPING TERRORISM:
BAN ALL MEDIA COVERAGE ON TERROR RELATED EVENTS world wide -
Gone - End - Over - No more terrorist attacks . it really is that simple.
If governments, and media networks continue to give these senseless acts mass publicity, then you know that they are opportunistically using these to advance their own political adgendas at the risk of encouraging other groups to use bloodshed for publicity. Otherwise the media and the governments that allow this are just as guilty as those who commit the acts. They wont commit them if there is no point and there is no point if there is no publicity!
It is commonsense really!
What happened today in Martin Place in Sydney is a tragedy. A mad man that sliped through the cracks of the justice system held hostages in a coffee shop in the heart of the city. It was not an act of terrorism. It was bad and sad. Rather than creating fear and panic and giving other lunatics ideas, the media should simply be reporting on "a SIEGE in SYDNEY" - which is more accurate anyway - and fuzz out any flags, political messages and the like that could be any advantage to the purpetrator.
Adjectives should be banned in news journalism, so that the facts and only the facts are reported - not overblown emotionally manipulative hype.
Keep Calm and give NO PUBLICITY TO ACTS OF TERROR - and definitely don't at to the chaos.
PLEASE SHARE THIS TO AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE
PS My deepest condolences to those involved and their relatives.
