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.

Ten years of fear is enough

This should be the calling for every American as we remember the 10th anniversary of that terrible day. As the ATS poll results showed, regardless of what your position is to the idea of a 9/11 conspiracy, it is universally accepted that day set in motion a radical move to a police state. It is time we as Americans pushed back on these increasing violations of our civil rights.

physics, science, math and numbers DO NOT LIE

My thoughts exactly, which is why I wonder how so many otherwise bright and intelligent people can fall prey to the lies of the truthers.

Good article, thanks for bringing it. Great quote in there from MacArthur:


“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)


Interesting how the guys who wage war, generals like Mac here and Smedley Butler, who are been there/done that/bought the shirt/rode the bull types of guys, tell us that "war is a racket" and it's all about the fear, gotta keep the people in perpetual fear.

Isn't that the same scenario that plays out in the novel 1984?

Some could argue that this is exactly what happened on 9/11

Sadly.

Because bright and intelligent people may have other opinions?

They may have their own opinions yes, but not their own facts.

To give my outsider opinion, the attack on that day was aimed at the government, and not at the general population. I don't see how one can be patriotic by suffering due to situations which are essentially out of your control.
So even if you are a truther, wouldn't ten years of fear be enough for you too?

I have never been afraid of what they say we must be afraid of...

Only who is saying it...and why.

I'm afraid we will never hear the end of 9/11.

It just goes on and on and on and on like a broken record.


Get new material.

Mate

That is a good point. I started this thread yesterday and here is the link.

Liberty Lost? Certainly is at the Mall of America

I won't bother regurgitating it here but have a read if you're interested. My personal thoughts are at the bottom of the thread.

Cheers

Now the news is claiming a possible credible threat we should all be worried about... I am going to the lake and swim instead of listen to this crap.

dont hear too many people talking about

passing a check to own a gun

being told what kind of gun to own

how many rounds it can hold

how many rounds it can fire at the pull of a trigger

waiting 6 months to put a silencer on it (yeah yeah some of us dont like to distrub our neighbors and have the morons call the cops on us for excercising a constitutional right)

where we can or cant fire it.

i hear the tag lines of freedom and liberty but only when it comes to the patriot act thats what upsets people

live in fear they say but make others live in fear of their rights to own and do whatever they want with their own property.

hipocrisy at its finest and for hte record i am no fan of the patriot act but if your going to go down this road make it a clean slate.

some things are tolerated and some things arent you cant pick and chose what part of the constituion you want to follow.

its all or nothing

The Supreme Court has ruled that Congress can regulate all those things as long as the ability to still own arms exists. You may not agree but it's certainly Constitutional.

I never implied it lowered crime only that it's not against the second amendment. The second amendment didn't even actually apply to the States before 2010 so before that they could make any law they wanted it relation to ownership of weapons.

You're absolutely right and there's one person who has championed this cause. I'm sorry but its just a fact.
