“The 9/11 Truth Movement held the seeds of liberation for humanity. If the lie of the “terrorists” and need for “permanent war” had been dispelled, we’d be living in a different world today. All of humanity would have demanded more from their governments before blindly following them into war. The awakening that it was people’s governments that manipulated them, and not others somewhere else, would have created a society where people’s needs would become the highest priority, not foreign militarism.”
Alex asked, “Why did this not happen?”
The old black man pondered the air above him for a moment, “Well, it wasn’t because of the criminals in our government at the time who perpetrated these crimes of false terror.
“Their acts would have meant nothing if those who purported to love justice and peace would have stood up to the lies. However, they didn’t. Although a majority of Americans knew they’d been lied to about 9/11, they were disorganized. They had no collective entity, and of course the powers that be tried to keep them confused, divided, fearful, and suspicious of one another, and tried to keep all others suspicious of the 9/11 Truth Seekers.”
The old man sighed, as if this story had worn him out, “But, the peace and justice movements of the time, which would have found their peace and their justice if they had joined those struggling to expose the lies, the lies that had been orchestrated and propounded so that peace and justice could be decimated for decades to come . . . would not speak out. They remained silent. And the powers of brutality, conquest, and militarism milked the false flag attacks of 9/11/2001 for all these many years to subvert and pervert national spending priorities. The opposition party bought into the lie, and in doing so painted themselves in a corner they could never get out of. Had they stood up for truth everything would have changed.
“Eventually this betrayal broke the people’s will, and like whipped dogs, they became mean. It is impossible for a nation to thrive when standing upon a foundation of lies. The lies of the attacks of 9/11/2001 being perpetrated by “foreigners,” “Arabs,” “Moslems,” and the human suffering all over the world that innocent millions suffered because of that lie . . . was too heavy of a karmic weight for this nation to bear. Everything began to crumble after that. The stock market collapsed, the dollar fell, the weight of endless military spending crushed the nation in spiraling national debt. The good will of the world was lost, because most of the world had long realized that the 9/11 attacks were a lie. When they saw good people in America, like the leaders of the opposition parties, the peace movements, and the justice and human rights movement leaders remaining silent about the BIG LIE, the one that had unleashed illegal barbaric wars on people for their oil resources . . . the world decided it was no longer in their interest to see a powerful America.
"Long ago, a man named Martin Luther King, Jr. said, "A nation that continues year after year to spend more on militarism than programs of social uplift . . . is approaching spiritual death." Because the lies of 9/11/2001 were allowed to stand, the American people were beaten with the fear of that over and over again, and spending shifted to militarism, and America's spiritual death was sealed.
“The lie became a festering pusy sore, and America became a pariah nation. Those who loved peace and justice preferred “popular myth” to stark painful truth, and refused to clean out the wound. America died from an infection of lies.
The old man stretched back after putting his hands out at his office and the messages on the wall, “Yet, here we are, 25 years later, fighting to get truth out. Here we sit in a sad collapsed, angry and confused cancerous nation. Had more who cared about this country, and peace and justice, stood side by side with those fighting for 9/11 Truth, back in the early years . . . we’d be in a golden age today.
"A man named Jesus once told us that 'the truth shall set you free,' and many in America's peace and justice movements claimed to be Christians, but for some reason, they didn't listen to what Jesus said, which could have created the nation they dreamed of.”
The old man pointed to the sick yellow smog filled sky outside in the impoverished collapsing neighborhood, as if indicating with one motion what decades of fear based military budgets had done to the environment and the human state of being, “But, they didn’t. So, please take a seat, my young brother, and let us see what we can do now.”
