The Third Bubble. Three bubbles actually burst at the beginning of the 21st century: a stock market bubble, a corporate ethics bubble and a terrorism bubble. By Thomas L. Friedman. [New York Times: Opinion]
We are strong because of who we are. Iraq was weak because of what it was. So, yes, let’s add a metal detector or two at the airports, but let’s stop thinking we have to remake our whole society, constrict all civil liberties, ban all Arab students and throw out all our foreign policy doctrines that have served us so well Ö from deterrence to collective security to the usefulness of the U.N. Ö to meet this new terrorism threat. We do not, and we must not.
