Second we got the Liberals, they will combine hard protection with consideration of human rights. In third we got the Critics, they deconstruct the debate of terrorism and the effects of counterterrorism in society. Fourth, the Revisionists are outspoken critics of the liberal democracies and claim that states are the real terrorists. And fifth and last the Analytical tradition, they try to explain and classify political violence in a neutral manner. (Less)
