What Might Work

Strap it on – This could be a wild ride! I, for one, admit to being a radical, in as much as “radical” means literally going to the root of the matter, as opposed to superficially dealing with or being content with merely tweaking old chestnuts, turning trifling truffles.
We in the trenches of the 911 Truth movement generally content ourselves with the low-key, slow-but-sure task of spreading our vital core truth one person or one DVD at a time. Meanwhile, up topside the movement, our designated superstars often hurl one bold hail-Mary or lightning-bolt after another, in the not totally unreasonable expectation that, while most will be knocked down, one or another may eventually land and score. In that same restless spirit of derring-do and devil-may-care virtuosity, let me suggest a sort of ultimate logical solution – a panacea, if you will – to our vexing bugaboo of getting “our” government to do what it ought to have done long ago regarding a real investigation and prosecution of 9/11 and other mass crimes of the elite.
Let’s start with the basics. Why does the 911 Truth movement exist? Answer: to try to remedy the abject refusal of the government and institutions of this country to provide or permit the exercise of constitutionally-guaranteed due process with regard to the notorious 9/11/01 crimes, arguably the most egregious uninvestigated criminal acts in the entire checkered history of the country.
So, why aren’t more people more upset and adamantly insisting on the revelation of truth and justice pertaining? I believe the answer to that is two-fold. First, less-vigilant citizens are fooled by the establishment’s ridiculously specious explanation. And those who are able to overcome their sentimental inhibitions and thus know or sense the basic truth generally can see no point in getting exercised, because they don’t know what they could do about it anyway.
Now, just what is it that this world’s powers-that-be uniquely value and respect? A: Unlimited profitability and cash flow and unlimited power to command and control.
Nonetheless, of the world’s two current superpowers, the U.S. Empire and World Public Opinion, I’d put my money on the latter as being the more powerful. But, this second behemoth is like a brainless muscle-bound adolescent: unorganized, undirected, and without a clue. But, look: globalization isn’t necessarily all bad: its advantages are simply yet unrealized. Every regular person in the world wants to live an unimpeded and self-directed rewarding and purposeful life, not as anyone’s slave, but as a free person. If there were a way for the world public to effectively demonstrate its uncontrollable, absolutely intimidating strength in its own behalf, things could be turned around quite suddenly and dramatically. And, in fact, there may be.
In at least a couple of instances in the past, impressive mass feats were accomplished “just for the heck of it.” One such startling example was pulled off a few years ago. Remember “Hands Across America”? What did that stunt accomplish? One thing: It showed such a thing could be done – that people could do it. (And, note that corporate billionaires joining hands, for instance, wouldn’t have reached nearly as far).
Similarly, but on an even more ambitious scale, what if people who are good at organizing and promoting such things all got together, and promoted extensively online everywhere, nonstop, for a year or more in advance, or however long it would take, a world-wide all-day work-stoppage or (optionally) perceptible slowdown, maybe vital services exempted, to start on a set calendar date and extend for two, three, or more days? Without ordinary people’s participation, the world’s economy would come to a grinding halt. Indeed, if everyone, or even half, got the message and participated, just to show what “ordinary” people could do, the world economic system would probably be close to crumbling after an idle day or two – something none of us would want.
But, let’s say 8%, or 4%, actually participated in the global work-stoppage or slowdown, something far more achievable. The result in that case would surely be a tremendous shock and awe demonstration that the powers-that-be wouldn’t want to ever see repeated.
And, the second time, once the effectiveness and benefit of the technique had been realized, the potential for mass participation should be relished and consolidated. And once raw global people power had thus been demonstrated, its awful threat could be used very selectively to achieve concessions and victories for the oppressed. For one thing, this ultimate tool – a sort of peaceful nuclear option – could be used to impose a sort of “writ of mandamus” on U.S. public servants, requiring that organs of government and justice fulfill their mandated duties. In consequence, uninvestigated elite mass crimes for which manifest bodies of evidence existed would have to be prosecuted, not just selectively at the pleasure of the constituted officials. A raft of other pro-people objectives might be fulfilled thusly, too; and a whole list could be applied to one instance. And, thus, the proper balance between the people and the organs of government of which we have lost control could be regained.
Why shouldn’t the emerging seven billion be so empowered against the few hundred?
