Overview

Fake terrorism is the creation of an appearance of a terrorist act, or the appearance that one was being planned, in order to encourage public support for legislation generally leaning in the direction of sacrificing liberty for safety.

It can also refer to a genuine terrorist act which was easily preventable but allowed to carry through to completion because it served the provocateur/victim government's aims, such as the 9/11 attacks.

A false flag attack is a form of fake terrorism if the primary aim is to stir up general fear and hostility rather than anger directed towards a specific country or identifiable group.

Fake terrorism is a very high-level power structure tool in that it is used by people who are already in the seats of highest power to focus and concentrate that power still further (largely through acts of legislation which would not normally be considered acceptable).
