Then came 9/11, a financially costly terrorist operation that expertly exploited American airport and airplane security vulnerabilities to use passenger-crammed airlines as missiles in an operation designed to maximize the kills. “Greatest Generation” World War II veterans such my father, Richard Gandelman, who thought they had buried barbaric mass brutality with Hitler’s death, were shocked by 9/11.
Just as some websites are dominated by boorish, hyper partisan “trolls” who name call and push free speech to the limit of slander in their clamor to get noticed, we now have news cycles dominated by bloodthirsty terrorist and wannabe terrorist “trolls” who clamor to be feared, and exploit state-of-the-art social media technology to spread their message and their branding of brutality.
