Certain strategies that are used in fighting low-level terror can backfire badly.
The first among the strategies for fighting low level terror that can backfire badly is the one where people are encouraged to form their own vigilante groups to fight the terror. The problem with these vigilante groups is in that the members are usually people without proper security training. So they overreact to situations, instill a reign of terror and end up terrorizing the very people they were meant to protect!
The second among the strategies for fighting low level terror that can backfire badly is the one where state agencies start hunting down the people suspected of being the masterminds of the terror and executing them without any checks and balances system. This approach is likely to give rise to extrajudicial killings. The agencies that carry out the elimination of the people who perpetuate the low level terror may, of course, claim that they have good intelligence on who the people to target are. But errors often creep into the intelligence collection mechanisms: as these depend on networks of informers, who sometimes turn out to be malicious or innocently mistaken. That is why it is always best to process people who are suspected of these sorts of things through the courts, inconvenient as that may be.
One of the nightmares that human resource managers have to deal with is that of workplace violence. The way things work is such that, whenever workplace violence takes place, it is perceived as a failing of the human resource department. It follows, then, that it is the said human resource department that is expected to come up with strategies for minimizing such violence.
The first strategy you can use to minimize incidences of workplace violence is that of coming up with rules that directly discourage such violence. The rules then need to be applied consistently: under a scheme where people who take part in workplace violence are actually sanctioned, so as to discourage others from taking part in similar incidences.
The second strategy you can use to minimize incidences of workplace violence is that of educating the staff members on why such violence is undesirable. This can be done by the human resource department. It can be part of the employee orientation or it can be part of ongoing employee development.
The third strategy you can use to minimize incidences of workplace violence is that of carrying out proper pre-employment vetting. The objective would be to avoid hiring the sorts of people who are predisposed to workplace violence.
Caregivers of children, these being mainly parents and teachers, can take certain steps to make the future society less violent.
One first step that caregivers of children can take, to make the future society less violent is that of desisting from beating the children. People who are beaten as kids grow up into violent, often irrational, human beings.
Another step that caregivers of children can take, to make the future society less violent, is that of building up the self-esteem of the children from early on. This is because most violent people tend to be people with low levels of self-esteem.
Yet another step that caregivers of children can take, to make the future society less violent, is that of modeling the desired non-violent behavior for the kids to emulate. It is a well established fact that kids don’t often listen to what their parents say: and this often causes the parents to be angry. Kids do, however, pay close attention to the behavior of their parents, and try to emulate it.
There are child psychology journals that you can subscribe to, in order to get more ideas on this subject. Some of these can be obtained as www.gmail.com downloads, under a scheme where they are send through Gmail delivery. Others are accessible online, in much the same way as the Gmail.com blog that is accessible for free online.
The United States is one of the most stable countries in the world. True, there are always undercurrents and small incidents of violence here and there, but generally, this huge country is peaceful. A question arises, as to what strategies are used to prevent national violence in the United States.
Now the first strategy used to prevent national violence in the United States is that of proper economic management. The understanding is that proper economic management will lead to prosperity, and prosperous people are unlike to engage in violence.
The second strategy used to prevent national violence in the United States is that of putting in place measures that ensure a certain degree of social justice. This is implemented through things like food stamps and other forms of subsidies.
The third strategy used to prevent national violence in the United States is that of proper political management. The system is designed to be quite representative, so that all interest groups feel that they are well catered for, and nobody can therefore cause trouble.
The fourth strategy used to prevent national violence in the United States is that of proper intelligence collection and management. So effective is American intelligence that anybody plotting any sort of violence is quickly nabbed and sorted out. This system has been in place for long enough to ensure that everybody knows about it, and nobody dares do anything unwise.
From time to time, we have situations where states fight, giving rise to what can be referred to as inter-state violence. And as it turns out, there are some three ways in which such inter-state violence can be brought to a halt.
The first way in which inter-state violence is usually brought to a halt is through diplomatic means. This, in other words, is all about negotiations, because the people who fight tend to be fighting over something, and once that ‘something’ is sorted out, they have no further motivation to continue fighting.
The second way in which inter-state violence is usually brought to a halt is through political means.
The third way in which inter-state violence is usually brought to a halt is through military means. This is like where a military force can be sent, to bring the violence to an end.
To get more insights on these matters, you need to start reading more on international relations. You can, for instance, subscribe to international relations newsletters. To do so, you will probably need to create an email account. But that isn’t really an hindrance, as you can always visit www.gmail.com, and proceed to establish Gmail.com email usage free of charge.
Getting the necessary intelligence to stop violence is hard for any given nation, but it can be done. It has to be done, anyway.
One way of getting the necessary intelligence to stop violence would be by infiltrating the various violent groups. This of course, potentially exposes the infiltration agents hence sent to grave danger, but the intelligence hence acquired can be extremely helpful.
Another way of getting the necessary intelligence to stop violence would be by carrying out espionage from outside.
Yet another way of getting the necessary intelligence to stop violence would be by cooperating with other states that may have such intelligence in the possession. Countries with relatively weak intelligence services often cooperate with international agencies such as CIA for crucial ‘intelligence aid.’
To get more insights on how violence can be stopped, you can subscribe to one of the newsletters that deal with this particular subject. You will probably only be asked your email when signing up for such a newsletter. And you can get the necessary email at the www.ymail.com service description page. So you just go the said Ymail page and create a special Ymail.com account, which you then use to sign up for the newsletters. That is, of course, assuming that you have no other email address: which would be an oddity in this day and age.
Street gang violence can be extremely ugly. There are places where, thanks to street gang violence, it becomes impossible for people who are not members of the respective gangs to venture. Ultimately, such street gang violence has to be combated. And there are two approaches that can be used in combating the violence.
The first approach that can be used in combating street gang violence is that in which ‘hard power’ is used. This is all about meeting violence with violence. The police can crack hard on the gangs, even as intelligence collection is enhanced. This approach is quite alright, so long as it is done in a lawful way. But if it is done in an unlawful way (like where ‘shoot to kill’ orders are issued), or by untrained folks, there can be a lot of collateral damage.
The second approach that can be used in combating street gang violence is that in which soft power is used. Here, the idea is to persuade the members of the street gangs that the violence is not worthwhile. Social interventions can, in the meantime, be put in place, through subsidized housing, food aid programs and so on: ensuring that the basic needs of the youth are met, and they therefore have no economic motivation to take part in violent crimes.
Getting rid of violent militias is extremely hard, once they are formed. Further analysis reveals some three reasons as to why it is often hard to get rid of such militias.
The first reason as to why it is often hard to get rid of violent militias is in the fact that the militias tend to indoctrinate their fighters very intensively. Most of them are actually known to first give ‘oaths’ to their fighters, before commissioning them. Then, the fighters become part of family units, and they strongly believe that if they ever leave the militias, they will suffer harm. So they are effectively locked in.
The second reason as to why it is often hard to get rid of violent militias is in the fact that the militias tend to use both conventional and non-conventional approaches to fighting. Conventional armies fighting them are therefore often greatly disadvantaged.
The third reason as to why it is often hard to get rid of violent militias is in the fact that the militias tend to have backers in the political class. Some of the backers actually turn out to be global actors, keen on using the militias to achieve certain strategic objectives. Their political backers then protect them from behind the scenes.
The nature of violent militias is such that they tend to be divided into units. So we typically end up with some four units.
The first unit that we tend to see in violent militias is the one that does the actual fighting. This unit has the foot-soldiers on the one hand (these being the majority, who are also viewed as easily dispensable) and the commanders on the other hand (who, in a proper army, would be the commissioned officers cadre, and who are greatly valued).
The second unit that we tend to see in violent militias is the one that handles financing issues. In some cases, this unit is involved in businesses (legal or otherwise) whose proceeds are then used to keep the militias going.
The third unit that we tend to see in violent militias is the one that handles intelligence issues. The nature of the activities undertaken by militias is such that they need a lot of intelligence, hence the need for a dedicated intelligence unit.
The fourth unit that we tend to see in violent militias is the one that can be termed as the ‘political wing.’ This is the one that does political negotiations on behalf of the militia. This is the visible wing of the militia. This is also the wing that does propaganda work for the militia.
In order to understand the dynamics of state sponsored violence, you need to ask certain questions (the right questions). This is akin to the situation where, if you want to understand the dynamics of anything else, you need to ask the right question. It is akin to the situation where, for instance, if you want to understand the dynamics of something that is good in nature, like the www.njuifile.net claim benefits program, where folks go to njuifile.net to claim unemployment benefits, you have to ask the right question. Similarly, to understand the dynamics of state sponsored violence, you need to ask the right questions.
The first question you need to ask, in order to understand the dynamics of state sponsored violence, would be as to why states sponsor such violence. This is, in other words, a question as to what strategic objectives are achieved through such violence.
The second question you need to ask, in order to gain insights on state sponsored violence, is as to what models the states in question use to perpetrate such violence.
The third question you need to ask, in order to gain insights on state sponsored violence, is as to whom the victims of such violence tend to be (and why they are selected to be the victims of such violence).
Much of the violence we see in the world, especially in the less developed parts of the world, is that which is perpetrated by militias. It emerges that there are some three reasons as to why people form such militias.
The first reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their political interests.
The second reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their economic interests. You come to realize that people are ready to go to great lengths, to protect their economic turfs.
The third reason as to why people form violent militias is in a bid to protect their social interests. This is where the issue of religious militias comes into the picture. Thus, for instance, when Sunnis form militias to fight the Shias, the whole thing is about protect social (religious) interests, though deeper analysis reveals that there are political contests at play as well.
You can read more about the dynamics of militias on the Internet. Of course, to do that, you will need to be connected to the Internet. But that is not hard, because even if you don’t know how to get a connection, you an obtain such information remotely, through programs like www.logmein.com, which is also accessible through logmeinrescue.com.
Violence seems to be part of the human condition. Subsequently, most human societies tend to have violent groups springing up. The violent groups in question tend to fall into three major categories.
The first type of violent groups that we tend to see in various societies is that of youth gangs.
The second type of violent groups that we tend to see in various societies is that of vigilantes.
The third type of violent groups that we tend to see in various societies is that of militias.
Tackling the problems brought about by these groups is not easy. The best solution is usually to prevent the formation of the groups, in the first place. That can entail making improvements in intelligence gathering. That can also entail giving equal opportunities to all people: as the groups tend to come up in societies where there is sense of social injustice. One way of giving equal opportunities would be by creating employment. This should be decent employment: in the sorts of companies that, say, can afford the services offered at portal.adp.com, the latter being a portal where you can check your income online. So just providing employment isn’t enough: it has to be decent employment, which promotes human dignity.
We noted, in an earlier post, that the achievement of social justice can help a great deal in the eradication of violent criminal organizations. Today, we will be going a step further, to identify the specific ways in which the achievement of social justice can help in the eradication of violent criminal organizations.
Firstly, the achievement of social justice can help in the eradication of violent criminal organizations to the extent that it can do away with the sense of disenfranchisement that gives rise to these organizations.
Secondly, the achievement of social justice can help in the eradication of violent criminal organizations to the extent that it can reduce the pool of potential recruits to the organizations.
Thirdly, the achievement of social justice can help in the eradication of violent criminal organizations to the extent that it can enhance patriotism, which would then tend to discourage such organizations.
You can read more on this topic by borrowing a book on the same from your library. Alternatively, you can opt to buy such a book. Whether or not you can afford it will depend on what you earn. Thus, for instance, if you work for Macys Insite, you can go to the Macys employee or Macys associate website, login, and browse through it, to see what exactly you earn and then figure out whether or not it is enough to finance the purchase of this sort of literature.
Certain things will have to happen, before violent criminal organizations are eradicated from the world.
Firstly, if violent criminal organizations are to be eradicated, then the cartels that benefit from violence will have to be dismantled first. This may entail ensuring that only state agencies are involved in the arms business: because so long as that business remains in private hands, the folks behind it will always try to sow strife, so that they can sell more arms.
Secondly, if violent criminal organizations are to be eradicated, then social justice will have to be achieved first. Social justice doesn’t mean ending up with folks who are equal in all respects: people’s achievement will always vary, because different people have different abilities. Social justice does, however, mean that all people should have equal opportunity. It should, for instance, be possible for any person to register a company on, say, the portal, described on this article, without facing undue obstacles: regardless of whether or not the person in question is well connected with the powers that be.
Thirdly, if violent criminal organizations are to be eradicated, then the masses will have to start electing leaders who really care about their interests. Unfortunately, the masses are often fooled by party machinations, ethnic considerations and so on, to end up electing leaders who don’t care about their interests.
Experience has shown that it is hard to eradicate violence completely in the world. This is a sad reality. We are trying to understand why it is the case.
The first reason as to why it is so hard to eradicate violence completely in the world is in the fact that violence seems (to a certain extent) to be ingrained in our DNAs, as human beings. That is why we tend to be violent, even in situations where it is really unnecessary. If, for instance, you go to www.njmcdirect.com, under the pretext that, for instance, you want to pay for a ticket and then observe happenings carefully, you will notice certain things. You will, for instance, notice that most of the people having to pay fines there are folks who drove violently, mostly in situations where they really didn’t have to.
The second reason as to why it is so hard to eradicate violence completely in the world is in the fact that we are conditioned, from a young age, to view a certain degree of violence as necessary for survival.
The third reason as to why it is so hard to eradicate violence completely in the world is in the fact that (at an international scale), there are folks whose economic fortunes depend on there being violence. Here, we have in mind the arms suppliers and their ilk.
Some two types of actors are known to cause violence in various parts of the world.
The first type of actors who are known to cause violence in various parts of the world is that of ‘state actors.’
The second type of actors who are known to cause violence in various parts of the world is that of ‘non state actors.’
Often though, the distinction between the state actors and the non-state actors is hard to point out. That is because further enquiry often reveals that the so-called non-state actors are actually working at the behest of governments.
You can read more on these matters by investing in the books that explore issues of geo-politics and global governance at greater depth. Such books are not expensive. Assuming, for instance, that you work for SHO or SHC, you can make a visit to the Sears employee website, where you will find information on Sears benefits and where, closer scrutiny may actually reveal that you have been given a bonus in a given month. Now instead of using the bonus money on booze, you can decide to invest in the purchase of such books: which will help you understand the workings of the world in a better way.
Most of the violence that takes place on national scales (giving rise to wars) isn’t spontaneous. It tends to be planned. A question arises, then as to why people plan such violence.
Now the first reason as to why people plan violence on national scales is the desire to achieve certain political objectives. People have, for instance, been known to use violence to scare members of certain communities into voting in certain ways (or to scare them into desisting from voting altogether).
The second reason as to why people plan violence on national scales is the desire to attain certain economic objectives. One common objective is that of getting a market for weapons: as the folks who constitute the infamous military-industrial complex know that the demand for weapons is likely to go up greatly when there are wars. So, always remember, whenever you see a war taking place, that someone somewhere is benefiting financially. Such people then have the incentive to keep on fanning new wars, in order to keep the cash flowing into their coffers (regardless of human cost).
Folks who use plastic money in the form of, say, Citicards credit cards online at sites like www.citicards.com/login (which is the Citicards.com login page), or those who have other means of making payments online can use the same to pay for the various journal subscriptions. Those are journals where they can get more info on the politics and economics of violence.
It may sound crazy to say, but the truth of the matter is that there are some groups of people who benefit from violence (and who, as such, have an interest in promoting wars, in order to keep on enjoying their benefits).
The first group of people who benefit from violence is that of weapon manufacturers.
The second group of people who benefit from violence is that private security contractors, who often provide the mercenaries necessary to fight various wars.
The third group of people who benefit from violence is that of the contractors who are often given the contracts to undertake ‘reconstruction’ once wars are brought to an end (and new ones started, to keep the gravy train going).
The fourth group of people who benefit from violence is that of (certain) humanitarian aid agency contractors: who, for instance, get contracts to transport aid to war zones at very lucrative rates.
There are nice books you can buy to understand the economics of violence (and the economic angle in terror, so that you can see the bigger picture, as events unfold in the world). Some of these are books you can buy online, and pay for them using, say, a card obtained at walmartmoneycard.com (from where you can also access the WalMart money card login page). You can also pay for most of such books using PayPal or even check in some online bookshops.
