Balancing Fear: Why Counter-Terror Legislation was Blocked after the Oklahoma City and London Bombings
Unformatted Document Text:  This variable encapsulates the following three factors: political institutions, party competition and government composition/party in power. Though all of these constraint variables will be looked at, two will be shown to have especially strong explanatory power: approval of the executive and the government’s partisan composition. The legislature, the theory’s intervening variable, enters the picture in the next stage of the process. It can either support or block the executive’s proposed legislation. If it attempts to block the new counter-terror laws, an interplay between the executive and legislature may occur wherein the executive tries to push the legislature to pass new legislation by shaping the threat accordingly. This give-and-take is depicted by the dashed line in the above chart. The final stage is passage of civil liberty-abridging legislation and enforcement of civil liberty-abridging legislation. These two outcomes are the dependent variables of this theory. Depiction of Theory. 3

This variable encapsulates the following three factors: political institutions, party
competition and government composition/party in power. Though all of these constraint
variables will be looked at, two will be shown to have especially strong explanatory
power: approval of the executive and the government’s partisan composition.
The legislature, the theory’s intervening variable, enters the picture in the next
stage of the process. It can either support or block the executive’s proposed legislation.
If it attempts to block the new counter-terror laws, an interplay between the executive and
legislature may occur wherein the executive tries to push the legislature to pass new
legislation by shaping the threat accordingly. This give-and-take is depicted by the
dashed line in the above chart. The final stage is passage of civil liberty-abridging
legislation and enforcement of civil liberty-abridging legislation. These two outcomes
are the dependent variables of this theory.
