9-11 + 13 = Happy Anniversary to a Dying Empire

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).

Symbolic Attacks, Disasters, and Massacres as Political Manipulation and Staged Ritual “Historical Metaphors” of “Mythic Realities”

(Don’t worry….Almost all of the posts in this link are in English). The French seem far more sophisticated in understanding conspiracies and lies in government than the Americans or British… The Classical Structuralist, father of modern French theoretical anthropology and student of mythology and comparative religion (Claude Lévi-Strauss’ inspiration and predecessor), Georges Dumézil wrote about this phenomenon in myth and legend in the 1920s one book and a separate review article, “Le crime des Lemniennes: rites et légends du monde égéen,” (1924), and “De quelques faux massacres,” Revue turque d’anthropologie (1927).

So is all the world a stage, and is “official” world (political) history nothing but staged ritual “historical metaphors” of “mythic realities?”  Such an interpretation is consistent with the studies not only of Dumézil but of more recent structuralist anthropologists Clifford Geertz and Marshall Sahlins.  It is perhaps because of the French leadership in the structured study of mythology that they understand political realities so much better than the more idealistic British and American populations.   The French population is increasingly turning towards Marine Le Pen and the Front National while the American electorate apparently ignores Ron Paul and 9-11 truthers as “delusional” in Newt Gingrich’s cynical words….

The problem is that in the modern world, we expect “news” to be “true” and our expectation that the Government is honest with us is so great that most people do not consider very deeply the possibility that the government is den of lying thieving criminals who go into government precisely because they know that this is the one business, where the criminal mind is rewarded most extravagantly, with the least possible consequences…  I honestly cannot say I ever believed the 9-11 mythology, but I have never seen such a convincing array of data that the figure of 6,000,000 murdered in the concentration camps was in fact a pre-fabricated mythological number itself.  The significance of this array of newspaper quotes and articles is hard to contradict.  I am totally open to anyone who wants to dispute the possibility that all these predictions of 6,000,000 deaths and the final figure of 6,000,000 after WWII is merely a coincidence.  I have neither the time or the inclination to go into deep historical research about this point myself, but I believe that this is an excellent example of historical revisionist research—in that it suggests, even if it does not prove conclusively, that the “historical” fact was envisioned first as a “mythic reality”, and then enacted, and performed and the incorporated into “constitutional” mythology—which no one ever dares to challenge.  

This is a valid rendition of a structural anthropological theory to explain a modern historical and political pattern…. from the destruction of the Battleship Maine to the Bombing of Pearl Harbor to  the Tonkin Gulf Incident and finally…. all the events of the decade between Ruby Ridge in 1992 and 9-11-2001…
