Pursuing Terror as an Open Society

Since terrorism is the last resort to express grievances, other forms to voice grievances are necessary. One forum could be a “Global SMS Network”, where one would have the ability to text message grievances to toll-free phone numbers. This idea is based on the fact that the number of cell phones in use today is passing one billion. These text messages would be collected at an independent global clearinghouse. From there, they would be sent to governments, journalists, etc. The messages could be acted on. The end result would be the spreading of information by providing direct access to those with grievances. It would be giving voices to the voiceless.
