AHC Terrorism still has a positive connotation

Terrorism historically has had a positive connotation.
It was coined to refer to the policies of the French Revolution. It was also liked by anarchists and communists alike.
Ummm, all three of those events and groups have been viewed negatively by many people, a majority of people it could be argued, especially those in power so I would doubt that terrorism itself ever had a positive connotation except with other out groups. I mean, its in the name, nobody wants to be a terrorist, they call themselves freedom fighters.
