Cyber terrorists can be motivated to target organizations that will result in the radical’s group to cause the most harm and/or receive the most attention for their party. Cyberterrorists use the internet to spread propaganda and enlist new members and use DoS/DDoS attacks to cause disruption to companies that represent actions against their belief’s (Vacca & Rudolph, 2011). Cyber terrorists can also steal information to be used for self-serving strategic purposes. Kostadinov (2012) makes the distinction between cybercrime and cyberterrorism in that the latter should resemble terrorist attacks via traditional methods but perpetrated virtually. Kostadinov goes on to note that most cyberterrorism actions are generally focused on website sabotage and email blasting.
This is also seen today as our own governments try to control us by political propaganda and fabricated news, which is also seen in the novel. They censor what we see, what we believe, our past and our future. They misinform the public by manipulating and tweaking the truth to support their own personal agenda. Just as the Party lied about how the war against Eastasia and Eurasia was going, our media lies about similar subject
Richard Evans in “the Coming of the Third Reich” argues that WWI had sanctioned the use of violence for political gain, leading to the formation of paramilitary groups that further undermined the effectiveness of the democracy.

As the name implies, terrorism is understood as an attempt to provoke fear and intimidation. Terrorist acts are designed to attract wide publicity and cause public shock, outrage, and fear.

Terrorism is the unlawful use of force or violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.
Washington concludes that the formation of political parties is dangerous to the prosperity of the young nation, however, he states that the formation of political parties is inseparable from our nature (Washington, 103). Washington defines the formation of political parties to be the “domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities” (Washington, 103) Washington believed that political parties turn citizens against one another and in certain cases cause riots and insurrection. He also believed that political parties fuel animosity and open the door to foreign influence and corruption (Washington, 103). Because the formation of political parties can not be prevented Washington extended cautions to prevent the demise of the nation from political parties. With certain precautions and a spirit of morality political parties can exist without causing
The relationship then between the media and politicians according to Daniel Chandler, ‘The media and politicians have a love/hate relationship’. This is due to the fact that the politicians require the media to spread the word about their work. However this is also a relationship where the media requires politicians to satisfy the audiences’ interests of political issues ranging from results of general elections to every day political opinions regarding current events such as the terrorist attacks in Pakistan recently. There is also a belief within the political camp that the way the media portrays events is to their own beliefs. This is especially seen with newspapers.

We also remember the The 2011 phone-hacking scandal of celebrities in the US by journalists of The News of the World is an obvious example of another such abuse. Were these journalists, in the name of freedom of expression and of the press, allowed to commit those wanton invasions of privacy of these personalities? In addition, With access to the Internet being democratized, cases where users have insulted or threatened other people or even blasphemed religions, especially across social networks are cumulating. These threats may in turn provoke violent responses or reactions from those targeted. Hence So, we come to understand why the whole question sparked up.
In terms of the general public, the media is most commonly understood or perceived as merely a means of entertainment. However it is much more than that, it is a source of displaying human expression, art, imagination, creativity, and intellect. The founders who create, advertise, and distribute their works to the mass public all over the world regularly incorporate certain and various types of messages or signs in their creations that reflects their creativity and imagination. Certain individuals or groups of individuals that oppose the material might see it as a defamation labeling them manipulative, inappropriate, and sometimes dangerous. Negative comments and complaints are thus directed to the government which then enables acts of
“Conservative and popular press especially indulges in sometimes blatant ‘foreigner bashing’ and reproduction and affirmation of racial prejudice” (Van Dijk, 1999). There are individuals out there who use social media to their advantage by spreading their biased ethnic discriminatory beliefs. The individuals who usually have this power are the social elites and political leaders.

Ethnicity discrimination continues to spread in different conventions and an aim to end this is
