Last night in Beverly Hills, as if to celebrate the eve of this horrible day, there were searchlight helicopters all over town and police in every alleyway of every residential street. What happened? Nothing, so far as I can tell. But the Police State is operating quite well, thank you. No problems in filling the American Gulags. In Los Angeles they arrest and fine people who care for too many unhealthy dogs (if they aren’t veterinarians, but just caring, loving people). In Beverly Hills they arrest and fine people who have more than 4 dogs… or more than 3 dogs and two cats…. I forget the exact formula, BUT I actually know people who have been prosecuted for such things.
Meanwhile, 9-11 has achieved all of its goals: we have lost most of our fundamental freedoms, we are constantly under surveillance, and our country has been flooded with Muslim immigrants precisely to make sure that no one will ever feel safe again, and the original (White & Black) populations of this country will know that this is NO LONGER their land….Blacks are no longer the “dangerous minority” to whites—Blacks and Whites are both being displaced by Japanese and Chinese Asians at the upper end of the socio-economic scale and Mexican and South Asian immigrants at the lower end. Hindus and Pakistanis and Arabs come to replace us in the middle class, management and many professions. So yes, racially conscious politics and policies are still alive and well an living in the United States—it’s just that the world’s all gone Topsy-Turvey.
I would like to see 9-11 transformed into a national holiday where we study “the lies of history” and celebrate our liberation from those falsehoods. Historical truth can be a source of pride or a source of shame—or just a source of valuable psychological insights into the perversity that is the Human Condition. 9-11 should be remembered as a cautionary tale that we must ALWAYS QUESTION THE FACTS and BE SUSPICIOUS AND SKEPTICAL, NO MATTER WHO TALKS TO US.
A friend of mine, and she is a friend, albeit a highly emotional and difficult person, becomes very indignant with me when I disagree with her assessment of other people or situations (or even her own situation). She tells me that friends should support each other no matter what. I say, “sometimes only your best friend will tell you what you really don’t want to hear.”
She cannot understand that I no more would ever say, “I support my friends, right or wrong” than I would say “I support my country, right or wrong.” Although I know that, for many years, “my country, right or wrong” was a prayerful mantra among those who still had faith in their government.
No, we all have a fundamental duty constantly to evaluate what is right and what is wrong. We are not merely entitled to change our judgments, we are duty bound to change our judgments if we learn new facts or see old facts in a new light. The quest for truth is a constant, never-ending struggle and the moment we abandon that quest, we cease to be human.
ANYONE today in America who says they still believe the official story about 9-11 is either a retarded fool or a craven sycophantic liar. And yes, this does appear to include all the editors of “Wikipedia” and “CNN”….and the National Geographic Society….etc. (in other words, everyone in the mainstream).
