What is the actual meaning of the word, ‘terrorism?’ It might surprise you to discover that it didn’t always mean the same thing as what we think it means today. In fact, the meaning of this word has been changing in recent years. It has been changed to meet the needs of the political ruling class, and that can be proven. Let me show you.
FIRST, A TOUR OF HISTORY
Ask Google what the word means and you will find this:
1. the unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims.
Ask the Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary and you find this:
However, if you ask the Webster’s II New Riverside Dictionary of 1996, you will find this:
The political use of violence or intimidation
Finally, if we consult, ‘The World Dictionary,’ circa 1974, we find this:
1– a terrorizing; the use of terror
2 — a condition of fear and submission produced by frightening people
3 — a method of opposing a government internally through the use of terror
NOW FOR THE LESSON
The modern definition of ‘terrorism’ has been intentionally changed. Notice how it used to mean any use of terror to the ‘unlawful use of terror for political purposes.’ Why did they change the meaning of this word? Nothing about its ‘form or function’ changed, so why did they change the definition?
As an example: I invite you to consider the way the government, their doctors and the ‘main stream’ media have treated the current COVID-19 ‘crisis.’
You might not see it, and that is fine, however, when I watch the doctors in the WHO, CDC or the doctors at the podium with President Trump, I see people who are pushing a worse-case, ‘end-of-the-world’ narrative. I also see them advocating for very similar ‘solutions,’ all of which amount to massive government control over every aspect of society for anywhere from 3 months to almost 2 years! What’s more, I have seen proof that these same people — the doctors, their government agencies and the ‘media’ — are intentionally manipulating the causes of death so as to obtain the highest possible ‘COVID-19–related’ death counts. Additionally, these same people keep using predictions based on models that are wildly out of sync with reality. Finally, some of these people appear as though they are happy about all of this; as though they can barely contain their glee. The final conclusion I draw from all of these things is that these people have intentionally manipulated the COVID-19 virus for the purpose of terrorizing society into submitting to, even begging for the implementation of their political agendas.
But I do not believe this in a bubble. There is further support for my conclusion. If one has been watching, one will have seen that members in both major American political Parties have been openly saying that the COVID-19 ‘crisis’ is an opportunity to force their political agenda on America. They admit their agenda could never pass in ‘normal’ times, but boast that the ‘crisis’ presents them with the opportunity to get everything they’ve ever wanted. By the old definition of the word, this is ‘terrorism:’ the intentional use of fear (i.e. terror) to further a political agenda.
However, if I go to Google today and ask Google if this is terrorism, Google will say NO! None of the uses of fear or terror I just listed are ‘unlawful’ (go back to the top definition and look at it again), therefore, none of this could possibly be terrorism (sarcasm intended).
If I ask the modern Merriam-Webster people, they would probably tell me that this ‘might’ be but probably isn’t ‘terrorism.’ You see, according to the modern Merriam-Webster definition, ‘terrorism’ has to be ‘systematic.’ But, if I asked, the government, its doctors and the media would most likely tell me that none of this is ‘systematic’ because it is all being done in response to an ’emergency.’ Therefore, all of this is ‘temporary,’ which means it can’t be ‘terrorism’ because it’s not ‘systematic’ (sarcasm intended here, as well).
However, if I ask the Webster’s II New Riverside Dictionary of 1996, or the World Dictionary in 1974, both of them would tell me that what we are seeing from the government, its doctors and the media most definitely is ‘terrorism’ — because it meets the criteria of their definitions.
Why is this important?
Well, if we allow people to just change the meaning of a word, then they can make themselves innocent of any crime simply by changing the meaning of the language in that law. Murder becomes abortion by changing the meaning of the word, ‘human.’ But, in the case of ‘terrorism,’ if we apply the true meaning of the word as it has historically been understood, then all of these people are guilty of breaking multiple American laws. In fact, were I president Trump, I would likely invoke the Patriot Act to arrest a wide swath of American society. The majority of the ‘Deep State,’ the Democrats in office across the nation, (probably about half of the Republicans, as well), and the vast majority of ‘the main-stream’ media, as well as large numbers of people in the education and entertainment circles would go. In fact, I suspect I’d also find several hundred people inside the corporate world who would be joining them. The charges would be ‘terrorism’ (as well as subversion and sedition), and I’d send them all to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to await military trials.
I’M NOT KIDDING!
BY THE LETTER OF THE LAWS ON THE BOOKS — AND HIS CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY AS PRESIDENT — TRUMP COULD LEGALLY DO THIS
But then, I’m still laboring under the false impression that this is still a world governed by reason, and that this is a nation governed by the rule of law — neither of which seem to be true any longer.
WORDS MEAN THINGS!
IF YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ACTUALLY MEAN, THOSE DEFINITIONS CAN USUALLY HELP YOU CLARIFY THE SITUATION AT HAND!
(which is why lawless people try so hard to confuse the plain meaning words)
