The far worse terror we now face as a nation is the State’s manipulation of the effects of fear deliberately induced and exaggerated to cause citizens to willingly sacrifice their liberty before the great god Security. The two most noble victims buried beneath the tons of stone and steel that once was the World Trade Center are those precious American siblings — Liberty and Freedom. Rather than responding to this attack the way Americans usually have responded to adversity – by picking themselves up, marshaling their courage and resources, and building a better, stronger nation, our political and military leaders choose to exploit 9/11 in order to increase and strengthen their own power, turning America into a nation of quivering victims.
“Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear, kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it.” (Gen. Douglas MacArthur)
