I knew we had reached the "tipping point" whereby the "relevant political community" (Zelikow)
Zelikow's area of academic expertise is the history and practice of public policy. In addition to the work on German unification, he has been
significantly involved in contemporary scholarship on the Cuban Missile Crisis, including the relation between this crisis and the East-West
confrontation over Berlin.
While at Harvard, he worked with Ernest May and Richard Neustadt on the use, and misuse, of history in policymaking. They observed, as Zelikow
noted in his own words, that "contemporary" history is "defined functionally by those critical people and events that go into forming the public's
presumptions about its immediate past. The idea of 'public presumption'," he explained, "is akin to William McNeill's notion of 'public myth' but
without the negative implication sometimes invoked by the word 'myth.' Such presumptions are beliefs (1) thought to be true (although not necessarily
known to be true with certainty), and (2) shared in common within the relevant political community.
would lose their "relevancy", amid the rise of a whole generation who would reclaim history and the cause and course of history for the many and for
the individual, as a just and noble pursuit dedicated and committed to the truth and reality at all cost, except at the cost of the truth and reality
Calling us "conspiracy theorists" or "truthers" isn't about to dissuade anyone from examining and evaluating the information we're putting forward.
Of those who hold to the traditional viewpoint ie: the "official story", average American Joe who doesn't have access to the information and the data,
he can be excused, but NOT those who do have access to the information and who knowingly
employ deception to mislead the public, for theirs is
the gravest of activities by what amounts to "serving", as nothing less than the devil's advocate.
This does not imply that everyone MUST accept the conspiratorial viewpoint about things like 9/11 or the JFK assassination, only that they must be
HONEST and aware, in regards to their evaluations and their activities. If they've managed to be deceived or to deceive themselves, that's fine and
even understandable, given the psychological nature of "the Big Lie", but if they are willfully and knowingly, and actively participating, in
, so to as hide the truth or to protect and guard the lie, then that would be the most base, and even the most heinous of things that
anyone could be involved in. Such people run the grave risk of putting the blood of victims on their hands and even their faces.
The great tipping point
is like an avalanche of history. It's not
the kind of thing one would want to be caught under while knowingly and willfully trying to stave it off by trying to push it where it just won't and
cannot be persuaded to go.
The tipping point is sudden, and of immense proportion and magnitude, and we're there, winning back the cause of history for the sake of all who've
been abused by power, including all the many victims, JFK included.
The real "terror" (for the perps, and their advocates/supporters) is when the truth comes back home to roost at the speed of light within the context
of the noosphere; when there's no amount of spin or name calling, ridicule, or violent opposition that's capable of stopping it, placing a type of
double-bind on those who knowingly and willfully kowtow to an evil and wicked agenda, system, and establishment, whereby if they do nothing, it comes
quickly, or, if they try everything they can, it comes even faster.
May the last laugh and the cause of history belong to the little man, the downtrodden, the oppressed, and the abused, as it did/does with Jesus Christ
himself who said "I ask for mercy, not sacrifice".
..."sacrificed, on the alter of freedom."
~ Rudolf Guiliani, 9/11 Memorial, 2003 or '04 (but he did say it)
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
~ Arthur Schopenhauer
German philosopher (1788 - 1860)
