In this perspective, we look at lifelong Muslims as well as Western converts to Islam to identify any parallels that may exist. Christopher Dickey, in his article “The Making of a Homegrown Terrorist” states initially that, “Radicalization of young Muslims takes place not in spite of a Western environment but, in many cases, because of it.” (Dickey, 2007). Dickey further enumerates his own steps that involve conversion from peaceful person to radical terrorist; these steps include Pre-radicalization, Self Identification, Indoctrination and lastly, Jihadization. While Dickey identifies certain lifestyle, religious, social status and educational status as previously mentioned, he hones in on the fact that most Western converts are “…not poor. Middle class families and students appear to provide the most fertile ground for the seeds of radicalization,” (Dickey, 2007).
is the dismantling of small terrorist cells and tracking money used to help fund terrorism both domestic and international. Department of Defense The DOD headquarters are located in the Pentagon. The role of the DOD is to provide Military forces to deter war and protect the security of the United States. (U.S. Department of Defense, n.d.). Department of Homeland Security The Homeland Security Act of 2002 created the Department of Homeland Security, the DHS mission is defined as “a concentrated national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism and minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur.” (Kamien, 2006).
The federal government has deemed it necessary to investigate anyone that seems in any way suspicious in the way of terrorism. This extends from illegal search and seizure to allowing any future cell phone or computer usage to be watched without a new warrant. Civil liberties activists claim that this, again, is an infringement on Constitutional rights while others claim this is a necessary infringement to protect our communities and people. Another issue with the expansion of the executive branch is the cooperation on a local, state, and federal level. The argument is that police are too involved in the legal aspects of collecting evidence, while intelligence agents are too uninvolved.
This concept calls for the redistribution of wealth and status and for the government to guarantee benefits such as housing, employment, medical care, and income equally to all citizens. Some argue that, if implemented, these two concepts would guarantee social equality and would, therefore, allow the ideal of political equality to be reached. Whether or not these concepts would work is under debate, but in terms of a system that has already been implemented and has proven itself to work, the American system of government has made huge steps in assuring equality to all of its citizens. The United States government protects the balance freedom, order, and equality for its citizens in a number of ways. One of these means of protection is through antitrust laws.

The reason that they do is because they are the final say in all matters. When we look at the Supreme Court we see that it is there job to make sure that all people are tried fair and that there rights aren’t being taken away. When the Supreme Court makes rulings in cases we can only hope that their philosophy isn’t all one sided. They really should be a well-rounded group of conservative, liberal and moderate. If they all were to think alike on all matters then it would be hard to see if they were really keeping with the constitution and really protecting the rights of the people.
It would be absurd to think that there is a need to criminalize a conduct if an individual’s feelings are hurt or an individual is offended by another’s actions. The harm done must be towards protected interests and conduct that are not just offensive in nature. In response to the Report, Devlin argued that criminal law was not just for the protection of individuals but also for society as a whole. The society, Devlin felt, was a community of shared ideas about how people should live their lives. As such, the law is entitled to create laws that protect the society even if it means infringing on an individual freedom to make his or her own decisions.
