If the whole damn thing were revealed to be a deadly hoax, and I don't mean we don't need to recognize that there is such a thing as terrorism or that vigilence against it needn't be maintained, but if, in general, we were just sold a bill of goods, very possibility including even in terms of the 9/11 event itself as something which was planned and scripted out, in advance, and then made to happen on purpose - do you think in light of that, if it was rendered as nothing but a myth commonly shared, that a return path would open up, to the lost innocence of our pre-9/11 days..?
What if it was all a Big Lie?
Yes, people died - but within that context, nothing really did change. Just that mass murder was committed and unjust war waged by evil doers within for nefarious and machiavellian reasons, but in terms of the REALITY we live in and the air we breath, or the REALM of possibilty and general (I can't describe it) which existed before 9/11, isn't that still like here, with us, and in us, and around us..?
For young people, it must be very troubling, and depressing, this world, but for some of us who've been around since the 70's and 80's, there is a remembrance of another time.
Zelikow (Chief 9/11 Mythmaker) was right to posit (this was three years prior) that an act of catastrophic terrorism would divide the world and history, into a "before, and after", but it it's all just bullshiit, then that is bullshiit too, right?
