Am I "off base," deceiving myself, or being counterproductive to think that a concerted effort to disprove the official story, without theories of what really happened muddying the waters for those who already have a seemingly impossible task before them to take that first baby step, could only serve to help us all?
I think the horse is long out of the barn on that. Anyone looking into 9/11 now is going to be bombarded with everything.
I've noticed though that people often ignore what doesn't fit their preconceived notions.The buildings fell at near free fall speed, (within two or three seconds of free fall speed). Case closed.
It was a controlled demolition. There is no way around that for anyone who is willing to accept a real fact, unchallenged by anyone. But people ignore that fact and advance any number of arguments to blunt the effects of the mountain of circumstantial evidence that points to a controlled demolition and a conspiracy within the US government. They carry on the whole discussion at a secondary level, ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room.
Many people do not want to believe the truth of what happened that day. They don't want to face the issues it raises. They like the image of themselves as people of principle who would never have been like those sad sack Germans who let Hitler ride roughshod over them. In the famous phrase from the movies, "They can't stand the truth."
When I am talking to anyone who isn't really aware of the 9/11 controversy, the first thing I do is introduce them to the 800 pound gorilla.
