Abstract:

In order to effectively prevent future lone wolf terrorism in America, one must first understand its origins from the white supremacist movements in America. Analyzing the foundations and psychology behind lone wolf terrorism is the first step in preventing it. Since lone wolves utilize the Internet as their form of frequent communication and education in ideology, the government needs to take a closer look at the Internet, and use it as a tool to track down the terrorists. Through working with the American people to create better privacy laws that allow the government to watch the Internet closer, there is a chance that preventing lone wolf terrorism is possible.
