Preface 

Since the publication of "The Unearthing" in April 2007, the Truth Movement has continued to gain momentum, contrary to everything Truth deniers and obstructionists do and say to try and stop Truth's exponential surge. Like the snowball effect, the movement continues to grow in numbers, reaching unprecedented gains, seemingly catapulting expectations and offering proof that the more people see Truth, the greater the hunger for Justice and the search for Change. The Truth Movement has begun to reach critical mass, in spite of the system's hurdles and vast propaganda apparatus, in spite of its entrenched censorship and gatekeeping machinery.

Truth, it has now become apparent, cannot be contained, it cannot be silenced, it cannot be imprisoned. The subsequent search for Justice, the second quest in our Movement, just like her sister Truth, likewise cannot be squashed. For Justice for 3,000 murdered victims and for those 9/11 First Responders now dying and suffering is a thirst our species seeks to satisfy. Attaining Truth and Justice, when both have been hijacked, are principles embedded in every decent human being, for these are part of what makes us what we are, what makes us, though at times primitive, a great species to behold, with so much to offer Earth, with so much potential and universal capacity for good.

In 9/11 Truth and Justice we see how millions of us seek a better way, a clean break from our present course of being, an opportunity to alter the course of a sinking ship. The Movement grows because, deep inside, we abhor corruption, criminality, malfeasance and tyranny; we detest injustice, inequality and oppression of the mind. We understand, as all people with free thinking minds, that 9/11 represents a clash between true freedom of the human spirit, not its charade or its myth, and continued enslavement of our lives and minds. This battle between two mutually exclusive destinies lies at the heart of our pursuit for Truth and Justice. We are at war, We the People against They the Powerful. In this battle the future of America, indeed, of billions of souls, will be decided. In this battlefield, they have propaganda, infrastructure, media and power. We have Truth, energy, momentum and Strength in Numbers. We have an unquenchable hunger for change, for discovering the possibility of our potential, of escaping what has been, of reaching what can be.

What the impotent antiwar leadership cannot offer, the Truth Movement has surpassed tenfold, a result of cooperation among hundreds of professions and disciplines, each containing millions of minds and eyes, slowly deciphering the charades and the lies, eviscerating manipulations and propaganda, methodically constructing a Tower of Truth no government institution or neocon shill can demolish. The Net has become our weapon of mass awakening, our printing press hammering down the cathedrals of control and long-embedded power. Through it we are one enormous collective brain, one giant body created from an amalgam of tens of millions of human beings, moving in unity, in synchonization, with the understanding that we are one indivisible whole, altering the balance of power like never before, slowly strangulating the criminal element in our society, robbing it of oxygen and energy.

Springing up in all corners of America, indeed, the world, the Movement grows and grows, unstoppable even in the face of continous smears and censorship, in spite of every obstacle the criminal element throws our way. Their methods no longer work, for Truth is a million times stronger than anything they can throw at us. Truth, it seems, is the flame, the fire that cannot be extinguished. 9/11 Truth, it seems, is the catalyst, the genesis, of a new way forward, a new beginning to a nation that has become an evil onto the world. For it is when the People fight back that Power backs down. It is when we rise that they fall. And it is when we take to the streets that they relent and bow down to our demands. Freedom is never simply granted, it must be sought and fought. And so it is with Truth and Justice. Alone, power gives nothing. Challenged, it gives you everything.

The system's apparatus is entrenched and strong, of that there is no doubt, but somehow, in spite of monolithic barriers, obstructions, hurdles and gatekeepers, Truth is spreading like wildfire, like a virus that has no man-made vaccine to stop its spreading. A fire inside us grows, unable to be extinguished, unable to be contained, spreading from person to person, eye to eye, mind to mind, hurdling over propaganda and manipulation, smear jobs and our lifelong imposed conditioning. Slowly, our chains are eroding, our minds are becoming free, our eyes see Truth, beyond the curtain of fiction and brainwashing. 9/11 Truth is setting us free, it is allowing our lungs to once again breathe the pure oxygen deprived to us for decades. Millions join our cause, millions see reality for the first time in their lives. It is invigorating, it is addicting, it is powerful and it is enthralling. Truth is setting us free, it is helping us climb up the mountaintop, from where a new beginning can be seen, from where Truth and Justice for what was done on 9/11 can be found.

An awakening is indeed upon us, we simply have to make it so. We see wrong and seek to make it right. We see change and want to continue on our path. All roads lead to a new America, a new world, an Earth where humanity finally decides to evolve beyond its primitiveness, beyond a humanity of many different worlds, beyond the catastrophe that has befallen us in the present. The system offers only smears to our evidence, it offers pundits and lackeys to our experts and witnesses, it offers propaganda and a controlled media to our Truth. Their methods no longer work, for our army of eyes and ears and legs and minds has come together, in unison, becoming an unstoppable momentum whose time has come, whose idea is finally upon us, having reached critical mass.

It is in this context, then, that the essay below should be read. An Awakening is indeed upon us, let it guide our way.


With Truth Comes Awakening


The suppression of truth has long been among the highest priorities for the upper echelons of power and authority. For a minority elite that clings to power by the manipulation of the masses using an omnipresent cocktail of lies, deception, mass-produced ignorance and ingrained propaganda, the destruction of truth is an essential method of control. It is a formula that has worked to unmitigated success for the elite throughout history, whether the shadows of power stretch from ancient pyramids, marble temples, castles, mansions or halls of governance. Those holding the levers of power and control understand, better than most, that the dissemination of truths to a blind majority could spell the end of their reign, for truth brings sight to the blind.

These entities understand that truth is like a massive breath of fresh mountain air, pure and energizing, refreshing and invigorating, and that once inhaled by the masses, the balance of control can easily be disturbed and seriously threatened. Revolution of the many against the few oftentimes results, mostly to the enormous detriment of the powerful. They know that widespread circulation of the truths of what they have done in the past and are at present doing to the majority could light a flame onto a massive cauldron overflowing with dry kindling, sparking an enormous inferno of anger. Truth, in short, could lead to an awakening of hundreds of millions of human beings who for too long have had their minds held captive by the instruments of control used by those in power.

It is for this reason that truth is hidden, fought, ridiculed, destroyed and suppressed, why it is emaciated and torn to bits, why its advocates and defenders are smeared, ostracized and silenced, their reputations purposefully shattered, their lives picked apart and criticized. Truth must never be allowed to gain momentum or be exposed, which is why truth seekers must be made examples. Those in power will fight tooth and nail to destroy the messenger of truth, yet will never answer the questions or investigate the proposition presented by the message itself. Better that truth remain a microcosm of darkness in the American subconscious rather that it be allowed to sprout from the fertile soils of free-thinking minds.

Thus, as can readily be seen on a daily basis, both in the corporatist stenograph called the mass media and inside the halls of governance – for those willing to open their eyes and see, for those that have escaped the slavery of thought – is the perpetual attempt to make extinct all traces of inconvenient truths that might upset the long-standing balance that maintains the few in mastery over the many. The crimes of the elite over the masses must never see light of day. Truth, therefore, is and always will remain the true enemy of those in power; lies, propaganda, manipulation and ignorance are their weapons, the methods by which they have always ruled over the masses, the master key to control.

So it comes as no surprise that over the course of the last sixty years, since the inception of television, since the rise of the military-industrial-energy complex, since the growth and corruption of the corporate world, since the marriage of government with the corporate world, better known as fascism, that all manner of truth has been hidden in the deep recesses of America’s black holes and tight-locked vaults.

In order to keep the beautiful minds of Americans from being distracted, upset or informed, in order to prevent truth from ever reaching the cauldron of mass awakening, the corporate media has purposefully been mutated into a propaganda and manipulation machine unlike the world has ever seen. Mass media has become, in the course of a few decades, a tool of dumbed-down distraction, suppression of truth, creator of ignorance, disseminator of disinformation and a stenograph for the corporatist elements that rule America. It is, quite simply, the elite’s evolved mechanism of control that maintains the masses in quiet and unknown servitude.
