Is 9/11 Truth "Fundamentalism" Holding Back 9/11 Truth? Are We Constipated?

If Steve Alten had continued down his normal career path of writing fiction about prehistoric monsters, etc., he’d have been able to take advantage of the normal media/reviewer/etc. tools the media offers to help authors get public attention.

However, by stepping off the 9/11 truth cliff . . . he’s written much of that off for himself.

 


HOWEVER, THE 9/11 TRUTH MOVEMENT COULD COUNTER CORPORATE MEDIA’S ATTEMPTS TO LIMIT HIS CONTRIBUTION TO 9/11 TRUTH!

Now Steve Alten’s website TheShellGame.net promotes all the 9/11 truth websites.  They don’t advertise there, he promotes them gladly because he wants people to have access to as much info as possible so we can all arrive at the all important truth.

However, because of the above attacks by a few, this makes 9/11 truth websites, newsletters, etc. etc. feel “uncomfortable” to RELENTLESSLY promote “The Shell Game” to drive it up to #1.

9/11 groups may feel comfortable mentioning “The Shell Game” once or perhaps twice, but not relentlessly, which is what is required for the movement to create the buzz to drive it to #1 and thereby get attention for the entire 9/11 truth movement, through the growing popularity of “The Shell Game” and TheShellGame.net’s 9/11 truth links.

Why does mainstream media run the same ads over and over and over again?  Simple, because that is how you build a momentum in people’s minds, to make a product successful.

Now some fundamentalists say that “The Shell Game” is evil and the publisher is evil, because they may make a profit off “The Shell Game.”  I pray they do, because if they become a wild success, then the 9/11 truth issue explodes into the public mind.  My goal is to out 9/11 truth by any means necessary.   I could give a good f**k if someone makes a profit.  I wish that NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and all the others would make a good profit outing 9/11 truth, and you know dam good and well they’d make a fortune if they had the courage to do it.

Well Steve Alten and his publisher did have the cajones to DO IT!  God bless ‘em.  Since when did everyone have to be a Jesuit bohemian communist who renounces all material goods . . . in order to be a 9/11 truth activist??

When these snide comments disparaging Steve Alten, myself, The Shell Game, or its publisher poisons these blogs, or is emailed to the 9/11 truth leaders . . . it intimidates them from doing what may truly get our message into the mainstream mind . . . which is relentlessly promoting “The Shell Game” in EVERY message they send out, every blogg they post, every oped they write.

ACTIVISTS MUST SEE “THE SHELL GAME” AGAIN, AND AGAIN, AND AGAIN.  That is how it works.  If activists who get your emails or visit your bloggs, only see “The Shell Game” once, or twice, or even three times, it gets lost in the endless tidal wave of 9/11 information.

Some will say, well that’s important information.  That is true.  All the events, and research, etc. IS VERY IMPORTANT . . . but do we only want to continue passing such information back and forth between people who already know 9/11 was an inside job?   Or do we want to take advantage of a fleeting opportunity to make something happen THAT CAN BLOW THIS ISSUE OUT INTO THE MASS MIND!!

So, how do we do that?  By driving “The Shell Game” to the #1 spot on the NY Times best seller list, and getting Steve Alten on TV so he can look at the camera and push for a new 9/11 investigation.  He himself has said his goal is to get Americans to see what he sees, that “9/11 truth activists are the great patriots of the 21st century.”

When I say this, if we all yawn, and return back to business as usual . . . we will have missed this opportunity.  This has to become a campaign, a fiercely fought battle for the next 90 days.   Mentioning this everywhere, every time we communicate.

Right now I am reading 9/11 truth posts and newsletters even from some who’ve joined the ad hoc coalition, WHO DO NOT MENTION “THE SHELL GAME” in their regular communiqués to their email lists, newsgroups, blogs, etc.

When the famous bus boycotts that sparked the civil rights movement occurred in Montgomery . . . how did that happen?
