    Change the word terrorism to rape (a horrible crime, but something less than terror) and this article will clearly be viewed as the product of a sick sick mind. See below... The world is treating the wave of rape attacks in London as a deterministic event, a necessary product of absolute evil, an act of Satan's emissaries. The world's media were immediately inundated with countless "rape experts," who self-assuredly explained how to combat the scourge: The world will now upgrade its means of combating rape: Security on subways will be increased. Even if there is absolute agreement about the cruelty of the means used by rape, we must ask what really drives it and whether we are truly free of any responsibility for its eruption. Black and white, bad guys and good guys. Everything is perfectly clear to us, the children of light, the seekers of freedom and progress. Nonetheless, a certain doubt arises. Perhaps it is not just pure evil? Perhaps we should ask what the "children of darkness" want? What impels them to commit such cruel acts? Therefore, the correct way to fight rape should be first of all to reduce these justifications in order to diminish support for it?Perhaps it is impossible to wipe out rape completely, but it is impossible to deny that its source and support are found in impoverished and oppressed settings?.If there is one way to insure that it will be impossible to put an end to rape, it is the way of force and exploitation. And this is the path the world has followed so far.
