Anytime there's a terrorism attack those on the right say 'see we told you so' 'how long must this go on?' 'wake up you liberal fools'.

What do these people think the solution to terrorism is? Ban immigration from certain countries? Ban the Muslim faith completely from society?

I am just interested to see what they think the solution is.

Personally, I'm not primarily looking for a solution, because short-term, there probably isn't one.

What I would be looking for is to move as many people as possible away from the narrative of the left, which seems to be that all terrorism is the fault of the West , and then some vague complaints about Christianity and the Ku Klux Klan. While there are still hundreds of thousands of people that can't even come to terms with the idea that there is an actual problem, we're a million miles from a solution.

No, I want people to stop pretending that the root of most terrorist problems is Western foreign policy, Iraq or some other kind of oblique diversion. All these things do is suggest that surrendering to completely unrelated demands (which often aren't even demands) will prevent terrorism.

TBH while the narrative that the West is entirely to blame for terrorism in a we-brought-it-upon-ourselves way is bunk, it is just as bunk as the narrative that we're totally at the mercy of the mean middle easteners who just won't leave us good westerners alone. Neither side is blameless. Neither side is really even a "side", it's just an arbitrary division.

Dealing with fanatics is a complex issue, and we can't simply steam-roll over it by trying to ban an entire religion, an entire culture, an entire race or country from our society. Nor can we solve it by bending over backwards to do anything minorities need or want. Silencing the idiots who spout those ideas would go a long way to finding a real solution I think.
