The Essay opens with the claim that personal Aggression, Violence and Hostility became permanent visitors in our place. This sad situation was the main reason for writing this paper. Along a short historical review, the Author explains the difference between the former well-organized 20th Century and the current Chaotic world perception of the 21st Century. The Author further reminds that the 20th Century contained two World Wars, that killed tens million people and the Cold War, that had divided the world into two large blocs. Further, the essay explains that in this regard the current century is different. No-more big world-wide armed conflicts, but many end-less small disturbing disorders, violent and terror cases. The difference referred also to the personal prominence of the leaders of the wars. The eminence Winston Churchillthe great outstanding leader of the West, Joseph Stalinthe sadist Communist Dictator who killed tenths millions, and Adolf Hitlerthe mentally-ill Tyrant of the Nazi regime who was a horrendous, barbaric and murderer of millions.

Comparing to these leaders the nowadays villains and terrorists are sick, confused and weak persons who seek recognition. Abstract cut. The Author assumes that criminal Violence and Terror expand at present as result of three reasons: (1) The termination of political debates due to the political parties deterioration, (2) A wrong understanding of todays developments, and (3) an erroneous feeling, about equality that causes much frustrations and lead to wrong expectations.
