Nobody wants to be a Nobody. Everybody wants to be a Somebody. The difference between a Nobody and a real Somebody is esteem: for self and others. "Fix the blame, not the problem" is an Old World's bureaucratic response, so we have Wars on Drugs, Poverty, Terrorism, Cancer, and other dis-eases, rather than humane responses to human beings' cries for help in a left-brained, numbers-oriented, technology-driven, transnational and domestic terrorist-ridden world. Today's World of drugs, crime, violence, disrespect for self and others, revenge, greed, and conspicuous consumption means people's cries are cries for their basic needs for love, respect, dignity, safety, belonging, and meaning, and/or a roof over their heads and food on the table. Could it be that there is something wrong with a society that promotes a steady diet of "more:" negativity, violence, prescription drugs, and plastic/fast food? Should our government's Titanicism, Corporate America's "big is better," and regimented educational systems be charged with contributory negligence? Shall we continue to blame the victims? HEALING THE TERRORIST WITHIN! reminds us that words lipped but not lived reveal esteem's status, that esteem is missing when the age-old battle for human minds, bodies, emotions, and spirit perpetuates fear, dogma, a dislike of the unlike, and war, and that our society does not honor all human cultures and intelligences (including right-brained emotional intelligence) and individuals' uniqueness. The human brain's plasticity means we, the people, can make a difference in our own and in others' lives when we heal the intimate and other domestic terrorists residing within and/or outside us who silence, betray, undermine, abuse, or destroy us; they are as dangerous as the transnational terrorists. We cannot heal what we do not acknowledge, understand, or work on. Without self-knowledge, we accept reactive, victim, or status quo mindsets, for we do not see people and things as they are
