The absurdity of the world today is so blinding that we can barely see through the fog to discern what went so wrong.
Plans had been spun for years in the dark underground caves by the enemies of man. The Neoconservatives had it all planned, but one factor was missing.
Propaganda had already been working its insidious misinformation. The mass media were already more than willing to play the game of Big Money. Americans were thoroughly indoctrinated to toe the line of Big Power. Respect for power and blind obedience were the result of the U.S. educational system. "I pledge obedience to the flag of the United states of America" Millions and millions of yes-men had been molded out of the clay of propaganda and history books.
Yes, the Neoconservatives had it all in hand. Ronald Reagan had taken the first big step to load the dice. Anybody with a conscience was now going to be deprived of any realistic means of resetting the scales to a just balance. This was the beginning of the policy of "starving the beast'. The little people had no say. Only Big Money weighed heavily enough to tip the balance. Bill Clinton continued in the steps of his predecessors and the famous climbing ladder, supposed to be available to all Americans, has become more and more of an illusion.
The path to world domination is made possible
September 11 made it all possible. Whatever really happened on that fateful day will probably never be known to the public, even though theories abound. But what we do know is that mass hysteria was awakened in the American people and the surgeons could now come in and chop away at human rights, spread fear instead of showing a reasonable calm, and all this without being hampered by any humanitarian considerations. The homeland had been attacked. All means were from now on considered legal.
Patriotism had its field day and barely any questions were asked. The tiny clique of cavemen made preposterous statements, unsupported by any real facts and the citizens lapped it up blindly, without the slightest attempt at verifying the truth of the accusations. Mass hysteria snowballed.
A country was pointed out as being behind this incomparably heinous deed. It made absolutely no sense whatsoever, but people didn't pay any attention. The propaganda channels were screaming: "Never in the history of mankind has a deed been wrought that was more evil, more undeserved, more incomprehensible. What do they have against us? There's absolutely nothing in the world that we have done that would deserve an attack like this one."
The rah-rah chorus got louder and louder. "Our country, the most civilized, the most moral and the most powerful country in the world has been attacked by an evil country. How did they dare?"
The patriotic screams covered over any voice that dared point out that the entire show didn't make any sense.
The big invention -- the WAR ON TERROR
The U.S. President became an ever more powerful actor on the world stage. He could wage wars that were not wars. He could kill civilians who were not civilians. He could initiate invasions of nations that were not invasions. Up was down and down was up. Sense and logic had given up the stage to hysteria and illusions. Non-sense is the rule of the day.
How was this possible? Because of an attack on two skyscrapers that collapsed like sand castles because two airplanes flew into them and a third one that did so without anything hitting it? No, that wasn't enough. It wasn't quite that simple.
