Democracy and Anti Terrorism: Through Media

Author: Kamala Budhathoki 'Sarup'

Published in Scoop Media. Good education system and objective media will reduce terrorism, and violence. So, we need to wage war against the poverty, illiterates and terrorism. We can't forget how thousands of people in the world have lost their sense of security and thousands face an indefinite period of uncertainty and anxiety. Everyday countless innocent victims including children and women are dying.

Education enhances ones ability to get better work and become an informed citizen, which is important in a democracy and to fight against terrorism. If people left uneducated, they won't know too much about a possible better life. Education always promote from the earliest times in the centuries. Since many people had strong beliefs, an education is necessary to read and understand the development. That education and media also are useful in work and business pursuits too.

I don't see how we can function adequately unless the general population has at least the ability to read to know what is going on so that they can choose leaders intelligently. If the people are uneducated, then the minority of educated people will pass laws who do not promote the interests of the general population. I also can't imagine how the some countries could become so technically proficient and rich without considerable investments in education and media so that expertise could be disseminated throughout industries to people who work in them.

So I think good education or media in general, if it remains somewhat objective is the only way we can be in democracy. The more objective media and good education, the better. Without a objective media, and education we cann't be successful. So we should promote good education system and promote objective media.We can think of a particular media who publish terrorist propaganda when it loses it objectivity so much that its articles are lies by any standard, or at least gross distortions from the truth by any standard. We should remember to assist the two requirements for a democracy, it is necessary to have a objective media and a people educated enough to read the media.

That way, when noncooperation and selfishness are exposed by the media, a literate population can put effective pressure to protect their rights.There is and always will be incompetence, noncooperation and terrorism , but when brought to light in the media and literate people are informed of them, so that they can pressure the legislators to eliminate at least the worst faults.

As long a terrorists persist in frightening in the countries as reported by the media, we will not tire of spending money to eliminate them. In this case, terrorism will be defeated. However, it will take a long time because it is difficult to stop.Support a voice for democracy and peace which is recognized worldwide - stand up a system which considers the development of humans. Today many of the people globally, are routinely subjected to torture, disappearances, kidnapping and forced displacement. Humanitarian crisis is taking place in the world. But we all should respect the student's right of being unaffected from the terrorism and they should not be used by any group. More students globally, are getting more frustrated and depressed. So media can show that the development philosophy, has been workable in practice. As for the objectives Media, I don't know how much opportunity some media have to make democratic analyses. The subject is, the media do give the attention and people read the media. Yes, Media must be fair, and accurate.
