I have to have a 10 page paper on Evil and Terrorism in the political climate written by 9 am tomorrow morning. I am supposed to respond to the following statement "Terrorism - the mass murder of civilians for political ends - is evil" Should be a relatively easy topic, but I have major writers block and need a little help. I think i'm going to argue that evil is a completely subjective concept based on the moral code of a specific society and that it would be better to use a word such as "unjust" to describe acts of terrorism. One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter so to speak. (clearly not condoning it, but I took too many philo courses this semester and now i'm burned out.)
Help with ideas? examples? anything?
