I wonder what you mean when you suggest we stop worrying about the "semantics". Do you even know the definition of that word?
I'll quote from wordnetweb.princeton.edu:
# the study of language meaning
# the meaning of a word, phrase, sentence, or text
So, by dismissing "semantics", you are suggesting that we stop concerning ourselves with the meanings of the language used. In my opinion, we need
to work harder to understand the meaning, not dismiss it as unimportant.
I agree that many times a discussion gets bogged down in trivial quarrels over unimportant issues. Often people call that "semantics", but it's
not. It's trivia, minor details that don't materially affect the argument.
Personally, I think 9/11 is over. Nothing will ever come of any of the thousands of conspiracy theories, simply because there are thousands of them.
Whichever one of them is correct (if any), it no longer matters. The deed is done, the evildoers have escaped (or died), and we've made our
horrendous decisions to engage in wars and ill-considered laws. No matter what happens, if the truth ever comes to light, the vast majority of peoplw
will claim it is false. The truth will not be recognized among all the crap. The guilty parties, if any are still alive, will never be brought to
justice. The dead will remain dead.
It is time to let this go and to move on. There are things happening right now that we can do something about. 9/11 is over, and we can't do a
thing about it any more.
