Governments usually lend credibility to the terrorists' declare of legitimacy by means of no longer enforcing measures meant to extirpate them. often, democratic societies worry that inflexible keep watch over measures pose a risk to civil liberties. Reluctant to maneuver, a democracy is frequently ham­ strung by means of terrorists bent on manipulating its values.
