TWO ENDURING MYTHS
There are two enduring myths that permeate American culture, which we
all subscribe to in varying degrees, regardless of our religious views.
They are the myth of an independent news industry consisting of diverse
interests competing to bring you the truth, and the myth of our
government protecting us from evil and harm.
We immediately trust certain sources of information, because we were
raised to believe that they’re "credible," and we do so without question.
We immediately turn to our government for protection from all danger,
because we believe it’s their purpose. These beliefs are so deeply
ingrained in our culture, that expressing doubt about either’s validity will
result in being ostracized by many members of our society. In other
words, if you insist that the entire news industry is capable of
collaborating to hide the truth, or try to tell someone that the
U.S. government has murdered thousands of Americans, there’s a good chance they’ll
think you’re crazy, and they’ll probably seek to avoid you.
You can hardly blame them. Your information shatters their comforting
myths, and leaves them in a frightening world they’re not prepared to
face. You also insult them by suggesting they’ve been fooled, and that
most of what they know about current events is in fact, deceit. And they
certainly don’t want to believe that the powerful protector they’ve
always relied on for their safety, is now terrorizing them into
submission. It’s not the kind of news that makes people happy, so if it’s
possible to disbelieve you, that’s the route they’ll take. Disbelieving you
will allow them to exist in the false security of their caring and
protective government, confident that they’re making well-informed decisions
because they read the newspaper everyday. Their "credible" source of
information has already warned them about "conspiracy theorists" like
you, and probably expressed hope that there will someday be a cure.
I too, would rather not believe what I know to be true. I would
definitely feel happier and more secure if I believed
America were fighting
terrorism, and punishing the villains of 9-11. Unfortunately, I know
better. For me, the myths have been exposed as fraud, and that fact has
also exposed the threat we all face from our own government. Politics is
not my hobby, and I would rather not think about the government at all.
But what I also know to be true, is that our government can no longer
be ignored, and to do so invites horrors that most Americans believe can
never happen here. Anyone who is unwilling to look past what’s printed
in the newspapers, is probably very dependant upon the myths for their
security and happiness. The American myths share their main aspects
with every other religion. Our newspapers are the givers of truth and
wisdom, and our government the powerful entity that will protect us from
evil, punish the bad, and reward the good. To deprive people of these
is to take away their Gods.
The result of these myths being so widely accepted, is that too many
Americans are not accepting the reality of our situation, and that fact
is putting us all in danger. Many still believe change can come through
elections, or that the insanity of our government can only last four
more years. They’re very wrong on both counts. We’ll never have honest
elections again, and our situation will only get much worse, unless the
American people take action to change things. The government of the
is robbing and killing Americans, destroying their nation,
and shredding their constitution. The will be no congressman, judge or
new politician coming to their rescue. There will also be no newspaper
breaking the story across the headlines, so Americans will only know the
truth, if other Americans educate them. In 2005, any American that
ignores his government endangers himself, and the rest of this country, and
any American that relies on corporate media for their information,
very little of what’s actually happening in the world.
The truth is that today’s "credible" news sources are masterpieces in
the art of deception, and they epitomize the propagandist’s skill. I’ve
learned to appreciate the magic show, and I now know that the best way
to make a nation’s constitution disappear, is to first distract the
people with the court trial of a dancing pervert. And if I ever need to
inspire hatred in my fellow countrymen for an innocent people, I only
have to blow up a few buildings, and blame them for it. There’s no need to
worry about the newspapers revealing the truth, and apparently, that
hasn’t been a problem for a long time.
The government of the
is not protecting you, or your
freedom. Only you can do that. What they are doing is oppressing you, and
they’re accomplishing this by convincing you that the world is a much
more dangerous place than it is, and by making it a much more dangerous
place than it need be, so they can sell you protection. Their protection
is only visible as a loss of freedom, but the "credible" news sources
have told you it’s necessary, so you’ll believe it, and demand it. The
slightest scrutiny of their actions proves they care nothing for the
people they were "elected" to represent, but still we believe they’re
protecting us, because it’s a lot more comforting than believing otherwise.
I no longer enter debates about who’s responsible for the attacks of
September 11, 2001. If by this time, you haven’t looked at the evidence
and arrived at the only sensible conclusion it supports, you simply
don’t want to know the truth, because you’re afraid of it. You’ll defy
science, and create ridiculous arguments to deny what’s obvious, and you’ll
carry on hating innocent people, because it’s easier than shunning
society, and its ridiculous, but powerful myths.
The heros of today are the modern town criers and pamphleteers; the
people who hand out the flyers, and disseminate the information necessary
to educate their fellow Americans, regardless of whether or not they
want to hear it. They’re operating web-sites, printing flyers, burning
CD’s, and whatever else needs to be done to inform a nation that’s been
kept in the dark by a government-controlled "news" industry. These
people are nothing less than the saviors of
, and they’re doing more
to protect you than you’ll ever know. The American military fights for
oil. The fight for freedom and justice is once again in the hands of
the American citizens.
I’m not a "bleeding-hear liberal." I’m a patriotic American, and I have
absolutely no problem with someone who wants to kill the perpetrators
of 9-11. They attacked
, and our president claims they’re wanted
"dead or alive," so we should all help to hunt them down and "smoke ‘em
out." I don’t have a problem with any of this, but I do insist that we
not behave as a lynch mob. We’re Americans, so let’s start by looking
at all the evidence, and not killing anybody until we’re sure of who did
this. That only makes sense. Join the 9-11Truth Movement. Either you’re
with us, or you’re with the terrorists.
