    So then there's less darkness in those places? Your use of "importing" suggests the removal of darkness from one place to another. That's not the case. There's more darkness, it hasn't been transferred.

    Although I think we've been in place of relative cover over our childhoods, when you think about WW2 and then the Cold War..:
    The darkness has existed in other nations, only recently have our governments allowed those who form and create the darkness to enter our nations, bringing their darkness with them.

    Police said they could not exclude the possibility of a terrorist motive.
    Police spokesman Hanspeter Kruesi told AFP news agency the suspected attacker was not of immigrant background.

    Other than perhaps the IRA, terrorist attacks against the UK were very uncommon throughout the Cold War. Certainly no Soviet KGB agents or sympathisers tried to blow us up.

    Even the IRA usually gave some kind of phone warning as civilians usually weren't their primary target.

    I wasn't referring to acts of terrorism in regards to the Cold War. I know the Cold War was a time of anxiety for many people. I remember my mum saying that my nan was very anxious what with the Nuclear Arms Race. It was a time of deep political unrest as we all know.
