It is said that without the media there would be no terrorism. And it is true that terrorism does not exist in itself as an original political act: it is the hostage of the media, just as they are hostage to it. There is no end to this chain of blackmail – everyone is the hostage of the other: this is the end of our so-called ‘social’ relation. Besides, there is another factor behind all of this, which is something like the womb of this circular blackmail: the masses, without which there would be neither media nor terrorism (Baudrillard, Fatal Strategies New York: Semiotext(e), 1993:43-44).
