People would be more willing and less fearful of adopting the views of 911 Truth activists if they felt they were calling for forgiveness rather than
retribution and punishment.
The peace movement should call for granting amnesty from prosecution and guarantee of an ample, lifetime pension to anyone who agrees to testify on
their roles in the events of 9/11, extending this offer to any members of the US government, foreign governments and/or terrorist groups involved in
the planning or execution of the attacks of that day.
Additionally, individuals should step forward and volunteer to spend time working with those who give testimony on crimes they have committed so that
they might be reintegrated into society.
Instead of executing Nazi war criminals we should have devoted all the human resources available to us to rehabilitating them, awakening in them
awareness of the nature of their actions so that they could have come to understand that they must make amends. If they had remained alive they would
have been a living testament to the transformative powers of forgiveness.
Historians and psychologists especially should come out in favor of preserving invaluable study material in the form of the opportunity to converse
with the authors of unfortunate historical deeds.
We must find a solution to the existing state of affairs that would be acceptable to both the accusers and the accused. It should solve the problem it
sets out to solve without creating additional problems. It should present itself as an ethical means to an ethical end.
In "The Art of War", Sun Tzu said never to surround an enemy. If you do not leave him an out, he will fight to the last man.
