Even 'debunking' articles can have a good effect
This explanatory post is long. The salient point is that even bad 9-11 articles can have a good effect. See below.
In my case, for some reason I knew on the day of 9-11 that that airliner was shot down over Shanksville. A friend of mine was in the Air Force. He had no doubt at all about it, on that day. But I thought the explosives idea was just nutty -- that bombs or whatever took down the WTC buildings.
Then -- pretty recently, really -- there was an article on Alternet debunking 9-11 'conspiracies.' By someone named Matt something. I read the comments to that editorial, to see what kind of people would believe the conspiracies. In the comments someone praised the video 9-11 Mysteries. I downloaded that, based on the person's praise of it.
God, what an amazing turnaround. The implications still just amaze me.
I now really hope that every last detail of this horror gets exposed -- every plan, every player in the mess, every stooge.
But I also believe the aftermath of that will be no smaller than the Civil War, once all this is known, or even some of the major pieces of it. I say, bring it on since, just like with the Civil war, we will not have a country worth living in, if this truth stays hidden. If it stays hidden we will resemble the Third Reich in most fundamentals. At present we already do, IMO. But we can get back on track, if this gets exposed, again IMO.
By the way, Alternet and other so-called left-leaning news sources really depress me these days. They aren't any bgetter than right-leaning sources. And the middle stinks too. Only the internet works. (Watch 'them' try to kill it therefore.)
Who has the courage and the decency to actually look at evidence? Not the left. Does the right either? 9-11 truth transcends that divide. Liberals and conservatives, Dems and Repubs, all look basically the same, on this topic, which is more important than any other in our generation.
(I posted this same item as a comment on the poll that dz posted, asking when we became 9-11 active. I propose that 911blogger post it here too, as an intro to my blog.
(BTW: These posts are almost my only 'activism,' so far. But I do have a few acquaintances in high positions, who will receive info and questions from me soon.)
