"…violent extremism is neither constrained by international borders nor limited to any single ideology. Groups and individuals inspired by a range of religious, political, or other ideological beliefs have promoted and used violence against the homeland." Department of Homeland Security
Humble opinion... it is too inwardly looking by definition to be effective.
It should be about 'our homeland' not 'the homeland'… (that'd be planet Earth ignoramus). Recognise our community is global. (its been 50 years since he had a dream! and it was colourful ignoramus) Think of the many not the few. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Gain altitude in your view. Recognise the marginalised as such. Stop viewing the marginalised as alien threats that need to be neutralised.
Prevent. (and I don't mean PREVENT - though well meaning our gov has botched up its implementation) Prevent radicalisation and you would not need to counter violent extremism or counter terrorism."
Preventing radicalisation has to be neither constrained by international borders nor limited to any single ideology." Peace Through Prosperity
Prevent radicalisation by enabling the marginalised to have a fair shot at achieving prosperity to the best of their abilities in their own environment. Do not try to fix what is not broken, help them improve upon what they have.
We started Peace Through Prosperity a little over a year ago to to do just that: Prevent radicalisation. We are not into countering violent extremism or counter terrorism because countering it means we let the opportunity to prevent it slip.
Its about how you view them and hence they you.
