The social security act In order to beef up security within the United States and its environs, the federal government of the United States of America has enacted a social security act that aims at compensating the victims of terrorism in the United States and its emphasis throughout the world (Abraham & Koch, 2004). The implicit goals of the legislation are to compensate the terrorism victims who are vulnerable to terrorists because of their stronger ties with the United States of America. The legislation of the social act has financial impacts on the citizens of the United States.
This means that the citizens have to pay hefty taxes in order to cater for the enactment of the proposed social act. The legislation of this act serves all the people of the United States and its embassies without discrimination based on gender, religion, race or color. The fact that the major targets of the terrorists are the regions where the wealth and the powerhouses of the United States are centered, the normal citizens, do suffer unnecessarily and thus deserve compensation by the federal government of the United States (Anderson, 2010).
The legislation of the social act pertaining compensation of the victims of terrorism was never enacted before and the civil society groups together with the state corporations should participate collectively in respecting the rights of the victims of terrorism. The sponsors of the proposal are the human rights activists who fight for the rights of the victims of terrorism. In order to justify their call for the enactment of the social act, the human rights activists links the acts of the terrorists to the federal government premises as the targets and not the innocent people and it is the responsibility of the federal government to enact the social acts that caters for the compensation of such victims.
