If the official story was a tapestry of lies, and the September 11th attack was a meticulously engineered fraud perpetrated by officials sworn to protect us, people would naturally have a difficult time confronting that reality. To reject a story so thoroughly entrenched in consensus reality means both ridicule from others and embarrassment at having been manipulated. Nonetheless, people who have not questioned the official 9-11 story owe it to themselves to consider what kind of world is possible if the official story were to fall apart. All of the attacks on privacy, dignity, civil liberties, justice, peace, and government accountability enacted in the name of fighting terrorism since the attack would become completely indefensible. The corporate media would be thoroughly discredited for its role as propagandist for the perpetrators. A truth commission or some such body would be empowered to find the truth, and people throughout our society would distance themselves from the perpetrators and all that they represented in ruthlessness, duplicity, unaccountability, and arrogance. Truthfulness and independent thinking would be newly valued. Neglect of the people we punished for a crime they had nothing to do with would give way to contrition, sympathy, and reconstruction aid. And there would be vast resources to apply to such projects once the military budget was adjusted to fit newly perceived realities, in a world no longer dominated by the merchants of deception and fear. That might not be such a bad thing.
If the attack was a fraud, would you want to be the last to know? If you haven't re-examined the official story, why not take another look? We have nothing to lose but an Orwellian nightmare, in which an unaccountable few plunder the earth's natural resources, and sap the human spirit through engineered fear.
