Hello fellow ATS journeyers,
We all know about how 9/11 functioned to erode individual privacy and civil liberties (read Philip D. Zelikow's writings pre-9/11 to see how this was
done, by design) and to prop up and accelerate the development of the whole security-intelligence apparatus, while serving as a pretext to a near
perpetual "war on terror", the results of which the world still experiences to this day 16 going on 17 years, later.
We all know that the whole policy has been, overall, an abysmal failure, and that the response to the 9/11 event in the form of "pre-emptive" war
represented a barbaric act of aggression in violation of international laws and norms. For most of us with a certain level of awareness and
understanding, these things are plainly obvious.
Of course some might beg to differ simply because such a view might offend their rah rah pro-American "patriotic" sensibilities or because they are
in so much denial that they are prepared to go to any lengths, even at the expense of a commitment to truth and reality itself, to support and uphold
and defend the official story. Nevertheless, I think that there's something that we can ALL agree on, so please bear with me even if you disagree
with my opening assessment.
The post-9/11 world just isn't the same as it used to be.
That's what I'd like to discuss and explore in this thread, no matter what your views are about the event or what ensued in its wake.
And here I'm not simply referring to outward things involving policy or the use of violence and military force, or the neccessity of being gropped by
power-tripping cop-faced TSA agents at the airport.
There is something much much deeper and more systemic to it than that. I feel that it's a qualitative shift in perceptual awareness regarding the
very nature of the world itself and our own place within it.
This contention seems absurd on the face of it, since "all" we're talking about is a bad and murderous event involving the destruction of a couple
of skyscrapers, the attack on the Pentagon and the loss of 3000 lives. As terrible as that is, it shouldn't have altered the quintessential
experience and perceptual awareness of being alive, but it did.
Let me try to explain as hard as this is to put one's finger on it..
Perhaps the best way to present this idea, this.. impression, is to point to the qualitative difference in what might be called the "ambiance" of
the world as seen in movies and films pre, and post-911.
It can't be just me and neighter can it simply be attributed to changes in production quality after 2001, but the whole scene and setting and
"vibe" of the world as seen in films before and after 9/11 has a distinct, but hard to describe quintessential and qualitative difference.
It is this difference, this distinction, that I'd like to draw your attention to and to discuss and explore, because it's my belief and
understanding that in becoming present to the nature of the distiction, whatever essential thing it was that was lost, can be reaccessed and
Whenever i watch a movie, I can tell right away if it was made pre or post 9/11. It's something in the light, in the sky and the world as seen
through the camera lens, and pre-9/11, it has a certain poignant innocence or something to it as a felt experience. Post 9/11, and it's just not
Does anyone know what I'm talking about and pointing to?
Some old lady was interviewed a year after 9/11 (I can't remember the source now) and asked for her take on things and she said that something in the
air was just different, and by that she wasn't referring to a chance in air quality near GZ.
For me it's something in the light of the world as seen and witnessed by the mind's eye.
Something just went bad and a certain quality in the light shifted and changed aterwards and it's never been the same since.
We've all lost something important I firmly believe, and while just a catchy campaign slogan, I think that Trump's "Make America Great Again" is
an attempt to capture the idea, that longing for a pre-NWO (satanic) world system, of which 9/11 could be thought of as the inauguration of the beast
system where future history is founded on what I would describe as a black magic play.
I believe it failed, but that where it succeeded was to rob us all the whole world over of a quinessetial je ne sais quoi, which contains within it a
fuller expression of both a rich joy and a heartfelt poignant melancholy, that's the best way that I can describe it, the lost innocence of the pre
Maybe it was a big lie that everyone was forced to go along with, that's taken the magic out of the light of day... just say'n.
Perhaps by having a more informed historical context based and founded in the truth, no matter how difficult to reconcile with or how painful to be
forced to imagine, that very same beast can be chained up in double binds and tossed headlong into the abyss which means oblivion, simply because
it's just not worthy of the 21st century human being.
I think that it might have set modern society and civilization up for a fall, not outwardly, but inwardly, where it counts.
I fear for the facebook kids of today for whom 9/11 is something that they might not even remember.
If you'd lived through the late 70's, 80's and 90's as I have and as many of us have, then you would know precisely what I'm talking about, so
for you i point to pre and post 9/11 film and movie making.
The whole thing's out of contro and up in the air now, with the abysmal failure, and it looks like Donald Trump isn't going to be able to put humpy
dumpty back together again, whether you support him or not.
The satanists are just waiting in the wings to reboard the ship.
I think it first shifted when they shot JFK in the head before the watching world, and then their evil and wicked tree was firmly planted in the 9/11
event, or was it?
Memory, heart, soul, aliveness, honesty, kindness, love... the light of life is still lit, even if for a time the world has gone dim.
Keep it alive and make it burn brightly, and let us not all lose all the things and the feelings that gave us fond memories and, however naive or
innocent, gave us joy even joy in the pursuit of the American dream.
I think that the American people and the world have really taken a beating these last 17 years, and that we've all been victims of a great abuse of
power in service to the devil.
Enough's enough! We've seen and heard enough and we have all the data and the "fruits" of that "enterprise" which really does amount to a vast
conspiracy that JFK warned about and that he was determined to fight on behalf of the American people.
We must all operate as watchtowers and lighthouses, standing right on the very shoals of destruction for the sake of truth and life and everything
Did Jesus not place the original double bind upon them by their own hand, and has history not repeated itself?
In loving memory of the victims of 9/11 which also includes us all, once again it could be said that it was the stone that was rejected by the
"builders" that became the keystone. That stone is the little man, and the fount of Liberty and the pursuit of an authentic happiness.
It has something to do with authenticity and being true to one's heart.
Not an easy thing to do in a dark and ignorant world, to be that light in the darkness and to keep the flame alive.
