911 Coordinator, Truth Grassroots Organization
Let’s face it – America is fantasyland and always has been.
The ancestors of 98% of us, and in some cases we ourselves, came to this country (and those of you elsewhere, please understand) in the firm belief that they (we) would soon be well-to-do, respected, and trouble-free full citizens of this land of plenty, this virtual Heaven, where the good will always come out on top. The meaning of things here isn’t what it is, but what you would like it to be. “Liberty and justice for all? We already have that! Don’t tell me we don’t! Sure, there are problems!” 9/11? “I don’t need to look at the evidence! I know it had to be those foreigners, because no Americans would do or allow anything that evil, even if they were in the hapless joke of a government. It’s not conceivable, I don’t care what you say your evidence shows.”
On the other hand, my friend Dante Vignaroli wrote in Facebook: “Amazing that in the history of aviation airplanes crashing into things like buildings and the ground left no debris, like wings, tails, jet engines, seats, bodies, wheels on 9-11-2001. I remember another dark day in America, it was 11-22-1963. And there are many other similar days in the past and more will continue to happen until the people finally say enough is enough and refuse to be lied to by our government.”
If only far more Americans would summon the will to use and trust their own minds instead of internalizing the constant inane narration overriding their honest, unimpaired, amply demonstrated (in other venues) ability to think!
But the incredible response to 9/11 of A-list public intellectuals and informants down the line, from (yes, sadly) Oliver Stone to Charles Lewis, the well-reputed top-level “investigative” journalist who wrote the brand new book, 935 LIES, uniformly neither affirm nor deny the government’s and media’s 9/11 lies. They just leave either mention or anything more than passing reference to the whole, key stupendous and era-transforming episode out, as if it never really happened!
After I checked the content and carefully examined the table of contents and index of the distinguished Mr. Lewis’ heralded book, astonishingly finding nary the slightest mention of 9/11 nor of the JFK atrocity amid the hundreds of certified lies and deceptions he deigned to document, I shot the author an email inquiring how that could happen, what with more abundant evidence of more and far more-consequential lying in those two cases than for any of the instances actually cited to illustrate the argued depravity of decades of successive administrations? Maybe he planned a second volume, with 9/11 lies as its singular focus?
And he answered without hesitation: “9/11 is a massive subject, yes, which has been heavily covered and analyzed by the local, national and international news media, by academics and by government institutions and commissions. And despite that, it will still take decades for the full truth to emerge, as with all major historically significant and complex subjects.
“However, as especially in the case of presidential assassinations and UFOs, I generally avoid sensational but uncertain assumptions and curiosities which have not and cannot be proven authoritatively. Life’s too short. Some of us choose to walk on firm ground. That includes me. I generally try to avoid quicksand and quagmires [but am happy to point out and document nearly a thousand other blatant government lies to the American people by their sleazy controllers. I just can’t venture to look into anything that might rile anybody too much, especially my sponsors. You understand.”]
It’s like the Soviets’ scrubbing inconvenient non-persons out of official photos. Those – and I think all of those who are approved to depict our common histories and paint approved limited hangouts into all of our probing minds are doing just that with 9/11, permanently creating false consciousness instead of arguing niggling points of honest protest and answering arrays of impossible questions, by focusing the discussion precisely everywhere else. And the real sources, meanwhile, not being approved, exist only as scraps in our own cut-off non-minds, and being non-sources, don’t exist, are beneath the slightest notice. The world goes on without reality being noted.
Our pipeline to everyone everywhere needs to expand exponentially.
