Terrorism: Cruelty, and Destructiveness for Everyone
Philosophy and Religion
The term “terrorism” is derived from the French la terreur. As now understood terrorism began in the French Revolution with the deposition and execution of Louis XVI. On April 6, 1793, the French National Convention created the Committee on Public Safety, which we now associate with Maxmilien Robespierre. Citizens thought to have sympathies with the monarchy were brought before the Committee to have their “virtue” tested.
