When radicalization refers to a single individual, it is defined as the lone wolf (LW) phenomenon. A broader perspective reveals that radicalization is an overarching occurrence that affects all aspects of social life, such as family, schools, organizations, countries, and governments. The current study explores how social events in our towns, regions, and countries can deploy to create a terrorist mind and lead to extremist acts. Under favorable circumstances, radicalization can affect any vulnerable mind leading to irreversible and catastrophic actions that could be preventable with a robust analysis of social phenomena.

Keywords: Analysis, Lone Wolf, Radicalization, Terrorism.
