About

Inductive terrorism, aka stochastic terrorism, is a phenomenon in which false and inflammatory propaganda is spread about a target person or group in such a way that it induces some tiny percentage of gullible people (which is a large demographic, so a tiny percentage is all it takes) to act violently in retribution against the target.

This propaganda is usually seeded by powerful interests – either in overt advertising campaigns or in the interpretive framing chosen in deliberately biased media presentations – but may often appear to be grassroots-driven, as individuals become ensnared by the emotional hooks planted in the propaganda and take up the cause as their own.

It is a form of demonization.
