"Terrorism," as it appears today, is a political and social problem that 
theosophy, which doesn't interfere in social or political action, can have no 
practical solution... Except, perhaps, to continue spread broadcasting the 
fundamental truths it teaches -- with the purpose of eventually changing the minds 
of all people, so that Universal Brotherhood and altruism in thought and deed 
becomes universally practiced, and reflected in the governments and societies 
of mankind everywhere. Then, there will be no further need for terrorism -- 
which is used solely as a means to enforce change in social, economic and 
political systems that, through one means or another rooted in selfishness and 
greed, is oppressive to others.
