Case Study: Domestic Terrorism I the America Context:
The subject of domestic terrorism in the United States is arguably a study in idiosyncratic political viloence. Indigenous terrorist groups operated in the American political and social enviroments during historical periods when extremists chose to engage in political violence.
In the modern era, left wing and right wing polictical violence grew from very different circumstances. Leftist violence evovles from a unquely American social enviroment that produced the civil rights, Black Power, and New left movement. Rightis violence grew out of a combination of historical racial and nativist animosity, combined with modern applications of religious and antigovernment ideologies.
In early years of the new millennuium, threats continued to emanate form the right wing antigovernment and racial supermacist extremists. Potential violence from leftist extremists remained low in comparison with the right. When the Septembe 11, 2001, attacks created a new security enviroment, the question for terrorism originating from domestic sources remained uncertain; this was especially true after the anthrax attacks o the American East Coast.
