Bruce Schneier refers us to the Southern Poverty Law Center’s timely article about, as Schneier puts it, “the rise of lone-wolf terrorism.” “The long-term trend away from violence planned and committed by groups and toward lone wolf terrorism,” he observers, “is a worrying one.”

“Authorities,” Schneier adds, “have had far more success penetrating plots concocted by several people than individuals who act on their own.” Not that we should brush aside groups like Al Qaeda and the Islamic State, of course.
