Mindless "Patriotic" Email - A Glimpse at the "Other Side"

What sort of reality do people who circulate this stuff live in? I can only imagine.

Here is the full text of an e-mail I received today from a Grandma aged person I know. I don't fault this person because I honestly feel that age is a real obstacle in having an open-mind, but I can imagine that there are plenty of younger people out there who still live in a complete fantasy world of patriotic idiocy, sensationalism and mindless sentimental gestures.

Here is the email:

It is the fifth in a new class of warship - designed for missions that include special operations against terrorists . It will carry a crew of 360 sailors and 700 combat-ready Marines to be delivered ashore by helicopters and assault craft. (...continued)

"Marketing" the Truth! and Passive Activism?

After watching John Conner's video from UCSD I had a few ideas that may help in DVD distribution.

Marketing research shows that people are generally skeptical of things that are given away for free. Either they presume the item is junk or they are wary of some sort of hidden catch. One idea might be for activists to station themselves on a campus and offer "FREE DVD WITH SURVEY". This will create an opportunity to get responses from students, speak to them one-on-one and hand out DVDs. And, because people will feel like they did something in exchange for the DVD, this may resolve some of the "free stuff must be junk" mentality.

The style in which John Conner is presenting the truth is attention getting, but it is also loud and aggressive. A more passive presentation might enable a different group of activists to participate in distrubution and it might also welcome people who are quietly, curious about 911 information.

Everyone who knows the truth is an activist, but each of us must find our own unique style and method of spreading information.

Keep-up the good work John!

The Only Way In?

Now that the mid-term elections are over, many people are discussing the momentum of the 911 Truth Movement and what steps should be taken to move toward a new investigation.

Through my discussions of this issue, there seems to be only one area of common ground even with the most close-minded critics of truth. Everyone wants to know WHY DID THE EPA DECLARE THE AIR SAFE TO BREATHE? Many people are unable to fathom a government that would terrorize itself, but these same people cannot ignore the fact that police, firefighters, rescue workers and clean-up crews are hacking themselves to death with various lung diseases!

All of 911 needs to be re-investigated, but many people and most politicians (even Democrats) will not be open to such an idea...at first.

I strongly feel that the CLEAN AIR issue is our only chance to get our proverbial "foot in the door". Once one issue is investigated closely, the truth about 911 will hopefully spill out for all the world to see.
