Don't the US, France and several other countries have a no capitulation doctrine when it comes to coercion through terrorism? No, public officials, soldiers and the innocent citizen bystander alike are all expected to stand firm in the face of terror. Any terrorists are then hunted down, jailed or killed.
So why is it okay for the collective poor to hold others hostage with the threat of an increase in robbery and violence if concessions aren't constantly delivered? That's morally a double standard and a choice of vastly greater evil because the poor terrorize with exponentially greater frequency than any international terrorist. In a word, cowardice describes contemporary Western society. Another descriptive term is morally pretentious.
We're not interested in the good or the true. We're interested in telling the world we're good while really just keeping our own asses safe if owned by the underman horde because the risk is just too great to do otherwise.
