This paper applies ethical analysis techniques, including multi-loop adaptive learning and virtue ethics, to the analysis of both state and private terrorism. It also discusses the use of the fear of terrorism as a control mechanism by the state, the ways in which this fear can be encouraged, including by the media, and used to scapegoat minority groups to divert attention from government policies. A number of feedback models are presented to illustrate the relationships between terrorist acts, fear of terrorism, vested interests and scapegoating.
