A Collection of Persuasive Essays

Attached to this blog is a easily-downloadable (300K), 30 page pdf containing eleven 9/11 essays I have collected. These essays were not written to provide facts and hard evidence, but instead address the human psychological aspects of the 9/11 events.

From the introduction:

The essays that make up this document are not primarily focused on presenting evidence that supports the theory that 9/11 was an inside job. That evidence is so abundant and has been presented so many times and in so many ways that to restate it here would be redundant.
These essays attempt instead to persuade the skeptical reader to simply “open his eyes” and investigate the subject for himself. The simple concepts that compose the truth about 9/11 are difficult to express through the written or spoken word, but very easy to understand through firsthand, personal experience. Psychological barriers must be overcome. Cognitive dissonance must be resolved through critical thinking, not by sliding down the path of least resistance. Fear must be subdued. The consequences of not doing so are touched upon in some of the writings, as is the urgency of opening eyes on a grand scale against a ticking clock.

I believe that any open-minded person unaware of non-government alternate 9/11 theories would be impacted by a sit-down reading of all these pieces.

Pass it around!

At first glance, it appears to be a veritable borgasmorg.

"9/11: Living in the Matrix" is my all-time favorite 9/11 truth essay!

Since this appears to be a first draft of your compilation of 9/11 truth essays, I have a few recommendations that I hope you don't mind my giving.

First, your introduction is well-written and certainly, I thought your analogy between coming to terms with 9/11 truth to that of a man whose eyes have been closed to the reality around him particularly good. My only issue is with your request of your readers to suspend their common sense, when, as I see it, common sense is what would lead them to appreciate the truth of 9/11. For example, when two cars collide, the each slow down (law of conservation of momentum); when a tree is cut, it does not spontaneously start to shred and pulverize to dust -- it follows the path of least resistance and topples over (unlike the towers did); and so on and so forth.

Also, you may wish to reference "Plato's Allegory of the Cave" in your introduction, or describe it altogether as representative of your point:


I was first exposed to it through Webster Griffin Tarpley at the PNACitizen-sponsored event in Austin, Texas called "Rebuilding America's Senses". Just so you know, it is the basic concept behind such great movies as "The Matrix" (http://whatisthematrix.warnerbros.com/rl_cmp/phi.html) and, as far as I can tell, George Lucas' first film"THX 1138".


I have cleared up the "common sense" ambiguity like this:

Temporarily suspend your disbelief and set aside your “common sense” that tells you that if the vast majority of the people think something is true, then it must in fact be true.

Good catch.

I hope to keep adding essays as I run into them, and of course I found another just after I made this pdf. :>
