ABSTRACT

When a terrorist act is done, the concerted expressions of horror and unqualified condemnation from all quarters are likely to cause in anarchists a dulling of the shock, a seeking for excuses and justifications in reaction against the presentation of the total blamelessness of the victim and the absolute lack of grounds for the violent act of the perpetrators. It is a reaction we should guard against; not to let our judgement, moral and political, be betrayed by sympathy for the doers who, being hunted by the police then become victims, or by the need for solidarity should they turn out to be anarchists or others opposing the unjust arrangement of society which we are opposed to.
