Understanding 9/11 Anxiety, Avoiding a National Jonestown

Good article, explaining why people won't listen to reason:

...
My own “Eureka moment” for understanding 9/11 anxiety came during a private telephone conversation with one of my favorite public radio personalities, Jean Feraca. After a brief discussion of my view of 9/11, Jean’s lively, lovely, eternally-curious voice sounded increasingly strained, pained, almost depressed. Finally she blurted out: “If you really believe that, why don’t you leave the country?”

The last person I would expect to hear utter a mindless “America—love it or leave it” primate grunt is Jean Feracca. Fox News, sure. But Jean? Doesn’t she understand that we 9/11 truth activists love America too much to leave her? Walking out on America after 9/11 would be like leaving a family member who has been shot by a mugger to die slowly on the sidewalk.

Jean Feraca’s “love it or leave it” blurt-out helped me understand what 9/11 anxiety can do to otherwise thoughtful, cultivated, cosmopolitan people. It underlined for me the key role of the cycle of anxiety-induction followed by anxiety-reduction in the 9/11 psy-op and the mind-control regime that followed.
...
Such anxiety-induced cultishness can lead to collective insanity, as the Jonestown episode shows. People can be led to ignore clear, obvious facts—even the evidence of their own senses—and live out a mass delusion or hallucination that they accept as consensus reality, and cling to in the face of all evidence to the contrary. They can watch videos of the Twin Towers being blown to kingdom come, WTC-7 being demolished conventionally, Larry Silverstein confessing to its demolition, Bush reading to schoolchildren with a guilty smirk while the nation is supposedly under surprise attack...and still cling to their preconceived notion that any “attack on America” must have been the work of outsiders.

Political manipulation is

Political manipulation is all about conflict: and you need a clearly defined, 2-sided conflict, so that you can easily define who is the bad guy and who is the good guy (relative to each viewer's politics, of course.) Once you have that, any scam is possible. All you do is manipulate the public's perception of that conflict with your media control. As long as there are 'shots' being fired in both directions, you simply control what the masses see, and thereby control the perceived momentum of the conflict.

This is why you'll never see the Dems or GOP out of power for too long - that would breed 3rd party fever, and the banker/corporatists can't have that. They play the 2-party system like a violin, because with it they can get any political development they want. As long as power swings slowly back and forth, they have the illusion of a fair system, when in reality, it's all carefully managed.

Right now, the GOP is being thrown under the bus, because the Dems need a few years in the sunshine, and the upcoming Dem Congress followed by President Hillary will provide that. The fixes are all in - anything to the contrary is simply theater to provide the appearance of political competition.

Meanwhile, the Dems will continue to shore up the phony War on Terror, just as the GOP did, and that gives the justification for continuance of all the civil liberty stripping we've seen the past 5 years. Nothing changes, just the faces.

that all we are allowed to

that all we are allowed to see in the MSM is political theater, the slow left-right pendulum swing they allow to keep the 2-party sham system in place so they can use it to manipulate the public.

It sure is a 2-party sham system. Just look at the top Dems, Kerry & Hillary. They are closet NeoCons. It's a fixed game. No matter who wins, we loose.

==================================
I believe that in order to be able to kill for a government, you must truly believe in it's honesty and integrity, as well as be unaware of it's past history of covert atrocities. There's no other way you'd be able to push that button.

Being a Liberal doesn't automatically qualify you as a critical thinker. I spend a lot of time on Left-wing message boards, and many there won't see 9/11 as anything other than possibly a weak LIHOP case.

I find that pure ideologues are harder to convince, becaue the crux of MY take on 9/11 is that it's part of the managed scheme of U.S. politics - that all we are allowed to see in the MSM is political theater, the slow left-right pendulum swing they allow to keep the 2-party sham system in place so they can use it to manipulate the public. Pointing that out makes strong partisans have to choose between either ignoring the scam completely, or admitting a lot of what they've done their whole lives is useless, meaningless tripe. It's like rooting for one side in Professional wrestling. Literally.

I have only too much painful

I have only too much painful experience with this anxiety. I'll give you a particularly depressing example:

One of my mom's friends is an 80ish man who was the Commander of one our NUCLEAR SUBMARINES for many years. This person literally had his finger on the M.A.D. button, always ready for the launch codes to arrive from the WH. He is quite open-minded and a liberal thinker. Reads The Nation and the NYT. When I showed him the NYT article covering the Chicago Conference, his answer to me, deliverred with obvious sadness, was that he has serious questions about that day, but that our government just would not do that to us, no way. Folded the paper over and over so he could not see the photo of the woman with the upside down flag. I felt like dirt for a long time...

This video shows 2 New York

This video shows 2 New York City police officers telling a reporter that the North Tower was leaning & was about to collapse, ahead of time!!! Who gave them this advanced notice??? http://www.zippyvideos.com/2374884495450566/outputwtc_01/

Destroy this 'consensus

Destroy this 'consensus reality'.We can handle the truth .

If anything, the South Tower

If anything, the South Tower exploded near the top & sort of looked like it was leaning.

The North Tower basically came straight down, so saying it "was leaning" was a pretext to clear some people away before its controlled demolition!

I've never seen that clip

I've never seen that clip before, thanks.

i pray(and im agnostic) that someday you will be right about that. but to look around today and see most "journalists" and "news outlets" talking about how The New York Times should be investigated for doing a story on the fact that our government is tracking 98% of all bank records and im not too hopeful.we are talking about jailing people for reporting on what our government does. fuck "national security". i will never buy that excuse as long as the government fails to show any proof for fucking anything. GOD IM PISSED.

I recommend this story be rewritten before being distributed to others. It is contradictary and pessimistic in one place, where it implies that it is almost futile to try to deprogram the population because they cannot change their mind when faced with the truth:

'They can watch videos of the Twin Towers being blown to kingdom come, WTC-7 being demolished conventionally, Larry Silverstein confessing to its demolition, Bush reading to schoolchildren with a guilty smirk while the nation is supposedly under surprise attack...and still cling to their preconceived notion that any “attack on America” must have been the work of outsiders.'

They should worry about make the story fly about the first 19 'hijackers' before they try to sell one on #20.

"Follow the money" is an

"Follow the money" is an axiom long applied to catching criminals, and it quickly appeared near the top of the Bush administration's "to do" list after the 9/11 attacks. Beginning almost immediately, the CIA and Treasury Department gained access to a confidential network known as SWIFT — the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication — a Belgian consortium that tracks international financial transactions.

The secret program, disclosed Friday by several news organizations, has, says Treasury Secretary John Snow, helped locate operatives and their financiers, chart terrorist networks and bring terrorists to justice..." http://www.usatoday.com/news/opinion/editorials/2006-06-25-oversight-edi...

Yeah, but didn't Thomas Kean & others assure us that the money trail was immaterial in the 9/11 attacks? More b.s. & invasion of our privacy!

What's up w/Buffett

What's up w/Buffett entrusting Gates to give his 40 billion away?

Didn't Bush make a stopover at Warren Buffett's place in Nebraska somewhere on 9/11? I wonder if this was for the Chimp to brag to Buffett about the 9/11 success or to get in Buffett's face gangster-style?

Warren Buffett held the last

Warren Buffett held the last of his charity gold tournaments on 9/11/2001. Rumor is that the date was moved up from it's usual October date, no reason given. It provided several Bush crony corporate types an excuse to not be in any WTC meetings that morning. It was Bush's first stop afer the Booker School photo-op. Also, one of Buffett's lease planes was reportedly the "white jet" seen circling Shanksville. Buffett has since confirmed that one of his planes was "involved."

Warren Buffett is into 9/11 up to his eyeballs.

Charity GOLF tournaments.

Charity GOLF tournaments. Not gold. Damn this Fisher-Price keyboard....

That is VERY interesting

Yes Rumpl! great stuff. When I saw today's headlines about buffet on msn , my first thought was - this guy is guilty of something and is jumping ship(probably in a golden rowboat).

I find this to be another

I find this to be another great essay by Jim Barret. The dealing with 911 anxiety part, really hits home.

I would also add, that one method of coping with the reality of 911 and the helplessness and anxiety that come from that, is seeking constant new information via the web, but doing nothing about it, in the real world of our communities.

Another and related coping mechinism is looking for the "one' all encompassing theory that will alleive our anxiety by giving us a comfortable but false confidence in 'knowing' of the whole truth. If we become attached to our version of the 'whole' Truth as our only 'oasis' of security in the midst of realizing so many truly horrific facts about our world, our government, then we tend to attack everyone that doesn't agree with us as if it was threatening our personal safety.......Which it is.....if we identify with that theory for our security.

There is nothing inherent wrong with either of the above coping methods, its only when we get so stressed/helpless/angry/scared, that we can distort them. Thus closing / impeding our critical / skeptical minds, empathetic hearts and our capacity for real action.

I have found myself guilty of all of the above tendencies, at times.

Just a little self-reflection after reading Barret's essay....

When I first woke-up to the

When I first woke-up to the truth about 9/11 it shook me to my core. I had to see my doctor for sedatives. Ever since 11/22/63 I have known how corrupt this government is. I was in a court battle over custody of my daughter and saw first hand the utter corruption of our judicial system. Even this wasn't enough to prepare me for 9/11 truth. When one realizes 9/11 was government sponsored one realizes that our government's criminality is unparalled in human history. This is a bitter pill to swallow. It takes courage to face the truth and I am afraid courage is something most American's lack. We have our work cut out for us..........(9/11-You Can't Handle The Truth.)

You give them to much credit, there were nastier rulers in proportion of deaths to population throughout the history of mankind..

But you are right the LBJ, Kissinger, Busheviks were one of the best mass murderers from the american dept. in the human pandemonium of bestiality..

"I was in a court battle

"I was in a court battle over custody of my daughter and saw first hand the utter corruption of our judicial system."

Me too, Maddog. Makes me the the hardcore activist I am today. In my battle, all I wanted was to negotiate a fair settlement to ensure she would still have a Dad, instead my ex took the lazy way out and started making false accusations to knock me out, and the system worked for her full strength. But that was long ago, and now she is reaching puberty and is beginning to realize the truth, and is very supportive of me. Keeps me going fer sure...

Sure there were other

Sure there were other corrupt governments. Nero burned Rome and blamed the Christians, but lets face it, Bush's grandfather financed Hitler's army, FDR knew about the attack on Pearl Harbor before it happened. The list goes on and on! This government has more blood on it's hands than all others combined. And that is just the tip of the iceberg. What about the trillions stolen? What about the drug trade? What about the child sex slave trade? I could go on forever. This government is so corrupt it staggers the imagination!!!

Master Mind Manipulators -

Master Mind Manipulators - neurolingustic programing... this is real systematic manipulation of the masses.

Control of the media is one of their highest priorities. So people who aren't WILLING to even hear of alternate theories are basically INDOCTRINATED into the governments propaganda.

They would rather CURSE the TRUTH rather than acknowledge their core beliefs are wrong.

That's why EDUCATION of the masses should be OUR # PRIORITY.

We need to counter their programing with our own - pick only 3 points and then hammer it in constantly - just like they do.

1. Controlled demolition and thermite - chemical analysis forthcoming - Building #7 - visually obvious
2. eyewitness accounts
3. Andrew Grove testimony

The reason I suggest these is that they create the strongest case:
1. physical and empirical evidence
2. multiple respected eyewitnesses
3. motive
