Inside 9-11, the next Pearl Harbor?

Here's a few more videos on 9-11 developing some of the ideas that 9-11 was an inside job. There are numerous inconsistencies and questions that were ignored by the official 9-11 report that lead to the suspicion of a cover-up.

The first video is of Dr. Morgan Reynolds, Ph.D. who served as chief economist for the United States Department of Labor during 2001--2002 in the Bush administration. Dr. Reynolds explains how he came to suspect that 9-11 was an inside job and provides some interesting commentary on the official explanation and investigation.

The second video is entitled Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometime. This video shows evidence that points toward a conspiracy, and raises many questions that were unanswered in the official 9-11 Commission report.

The interesting thing about these two videos is that they document that many very well educated and well connected individuals suspect that there was a conspiracy behind 9-11. Given the numbers of people who are suspicious of a 9-11 conspiracy, these ideas barely qualify as Fringe. Comparisons to Pearl Harbor arise, as evidence later surfaced that the government allowed Pearl Harbor to mobilize the country for full-scale war. Was 9-11 used for the same effect? We certainly got 2 ongoing wars and the Patriot Act. There is evidence that the wars were planned prior to 9-11. Was there a neocon conspiracy behind 9-11?

9-11 could rival JFK

Conspiracy theories on 9-11 are rampant these days. I have even seen stats that around 30% of U.S. citizens suspect some sort of conspiracy. There are several movements collating information about 9-11 conspiracy theory. Check out 911 Truth or Scholars for 9/11 Truth for introductions to the ideas if you are new to the theory that 9/11 was either an inside job or allowed to happen for political reasons.

It is understandable that people would feel drawn to 9/11 conspiracy ideas, given the heavy-handed manipulation used afterwards to push through the Patriot Act and engage in two wars! 9/11 certainly allowed the Bush administration to push an agenda that eroded human rights protections, allowed government torture of prisoners and sent billions toward the military industrial complex and Haliburton. Whether the administration orchestrated or allowed the attacks or was just too stupid to prevent them, the extent to which the attacks were used to push though radical policies will likely continue to raise flags for concerned citizens.

As a parting gift, here is a video that proposes that the footage of planes hitting buildings were fake and that the explosions were created by "Hollywood-style" effects.

The mindset of conspiracy

Why would an organization such as the NWO or Illuminati want to exterminate the population when humans are so easy to control. Techniques such as Caesar's bread and circuses have been refined and improved in media such as TV, movies, and pro sports. There are hundreds of channels of programming with advertisements to encourage losing oneself in a never ending rat-race of consumerism. If you have control, why would you want to destroy civilization?

The very far out theories of alien invaders or spiritual warfare avoid these logical problems, as they need no explanation for the conspiracy beyond pure malice. Of course, couldn't powerful aliens just easily get rid of humans with a powerful advanced weapon? Why would they need a hidden conspiracy? If they have the technology to visit earth, surely they could do whatever they wished once here.

Spiritual warfare is by definition resistant to critique. Spirituality is based on faith and belief. Spiritual beings can not currently be measured with scientific instruments. Apocalyptic battles have been raging in our myths since the dawn of language. This is likely why many conspiracy theories eventually lead to Apocalypse.

Whether by aliens or demons, there is generally a secret war going on. Only a few awake individuals understand the gravity of the situation. These projections of evil serve a useful purpose, as it is hard to imagine that humans are capable of the terrible things they are doing in the world today. Being part of the few awake individuals provides a community of like minded individuals who also have managed to apprehend the struggle ahead. This unity appeals in a culture such as ours that has seriously eroded social connection and community ties. Finding other like minded people is more than a breath of fresh air, it is necessary to our mental health.

Look around. Bad things are happening. Lives are exploited in harsh economic systems or sacrificed in wars that mainly serve the profits of the elite. Fascism and fundamentalism are smouldering and slowly growing in strength. Civil rights erode. People suffer without health care while oil companies post record profits. Climate change is altering our ecological framework, and extinction and loss of biodiversity plague earth's biosphere.

Something is going on. Maybe it is spiritual warfare or alien manipulation. Maybe it is the ravages of greed, fear and lack of compassion or empathy in a world shaped by grave technologies such as nuclear or biological weapons of mass destruction. As a citizen outside of the elite circle of oligarchs, one can only search for the truth and try to network and act with the limited resources of the controlled. Whether projections of despair or hidden menace, these dark forces wield great power in the Fringe.

A unifying theme in Fringe ideology involves distrust of the mainstream media. It doesn't take a conspiracy theorist to see that the media is heavily influenced by corporate concerns. Any publication dependent on advertising money is open to manipulation or censorship to please advertiser interests.

Indymedia.org was established during the Seattle WTO protests in 1999 as a grassroots media outlet. It has served since then as a source of information that is excluded by the corporate media. There are local chapters for most major cities and countries which can be found on the main website.

Indymedia is biased toward anti-globalisation and far-left ideology, but does carry some stories that represent other areas of the sociopolitical Fringe such as Libertarian or even far-right topics. In addition to the main site, each local site has a news wire where anyone can publish a story. This is where many Fringe topics may be found. While discretion and discernment are required given the open reporting format, the freedom of speech provided makes it worthwhile for those searching out the Fringe.
