    Today, we find nearly every corner of the world has a terror level, be it small or large. This has manifested itself in the west even, and, there have been horrible encounters with terrorists from bombers to shooters.

    The cause of terrorism, as I see it, is wanting to rise above, or, feel powerful over someone else's life. These fantasies come from exposure to media or too much time day dreaming - the films made by people delving deep into their dark fantasies and philosophy about what it means to be deranged and at large leads to people having similar thoughts when they are alone. Naturally the solution should be more socializing and togetherness, so these thoughts are dissuaded from occurring, yes? That would be obvious so far.

    In a perfect world, where terror does not occur, we could look at some places that will remain unaffected and ask why it is so there? Tibet would be such a place, yes? I cannot see any terror going on in Tibet, as, there is no dark desire there, there is so little and everyone is thankful for it, of course.

    So, how do we take Tibet out of the loop, no crime, no terror, no sorrow, and copy it over the whole world? There would be a need for the people to want this, this desire to be thankful - even the depressed need only be thankful and then they will realize that life is about comfort, and, how much comfort you can afford yourself in the end, be it sex, family love, highs from drunkard activities and of course a nice diet? I am sure, having all of these things, there is room to indulge?

    Let's face it, in the west most bombings and shootings come from people with a bent on complaining. These people need to be sorted out, as they will make others complain, and, one of them, one of them, might do something about it! This could be helped along by having weeks and festivals of denial where there is awareness of going without, yes? This would make it more apparent how lucky those are that realize it, and, even those that say they are not interested might at least have time to pity others, of course.

    Well, I wouldn't know myself most remote areas tend not to have those problems but that's because of their very nature, which most people don't like.

    When your whole life's effort is devoted to simple survival there isn't much time for brooding on politics. You can't really go off that easily from just arguing with your yaks

    What about interior Alaska, is it the same there?

    It would be much easier to recruit someone to bomb places and stuff in Alaska than Tibet.

    This is because they have strict moral codes. It is part of their culture to look after each other. This is because they have so little in their area to give them these fantasies about being bad guys with their own agenda, as is prevalent by comparison in the west, where there are, for example television shows about drug dealer's lifestyles and rebellion against the system, and, each other.

    I dunno, do you live in Tibet or have you studied the area extensively? Are the people there actually like you say?

    I never have, but I've never heard of Tibetans having any particular moral strength relative to other areas, even other remote areas. They, undoubtedly have the stricter morals people in remote areas often do and there is the factor of being the basis of a major world religion, but Italy is not a moral leader for having Rome and we all know about the Arabs and Mecca.

    And you must not fall into the trap of thinking people in remote areas have no knowledge of the outside world. I remember watching one NatGeo special where all these Shepas were watching television on their new IPads and complaining that the latest model was being delayed. The world is very homogenized nowadays, high technology is everywhere.

    The opposite is true. It is the fact that others do have power over someone's life that gives birth to the terrorist. Terrorism is revenge upon the powerful who have armies. Terrorism is seeking a way to hit back with limited resources at their disposal. The terrorist has no tanks or airplanes. The terrorist has rocks, matches, and anything he can get his hands on.

    I've been all over much of Alaska.
    It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

    I've seen pictures, it's breathtaking, no doubt, but also not very easy to survive in. There is a saying in Minnesota, which is actually warmer than Alaska , (though not by as much as people think); "Forty below keeps the riffraff out"

    Read, "To Build A Fire" one time, Jack London had actually been to Alaska in the Gold Rush, the cold he describes there is no fantasy

    Jack London was my favorite author when I was a kid.
    I went to Alaska in 79, I was still a young man (29) looking for adventure
    Spent a couple weeks in Ketchikan, then 2 years in Juneau. Learned to fly.
    Then I went north, bought a house in Anchorage,
    Went as far north as Livengood, 100 miles north of Fairbanks.
    Went to Kodiak for 2 years.
    Flew all over the southern half of the state,
    Faribanks was as far north I flew.

    Left in 90 when the economy crashed, and came to Seattle, where I have been ever since.

    The interior is no joke, 90 Degrees in the summer, 40 below in the winter..
    It can drop 80 degrees in two hours, catches cheechakos off guard.
    I was used to the cold, born and raised in Chicago, and lived in N. Dakota a couple of years.
