What would free speech icon Voltaire say about the political and social marginalization of the 9/11 truth movement?
The dethroning of sacred narratives and sacred myths in a culture is impossible without a free press. No such institution exists in the West, which explains why the official 9/11 story is still considered a sacred narrative in the Western mind eleven years after the traumatic events.
There is censorship in the mainstream media, and most of it is self-censorship, as heroic British journalist Alan Hart
said in this interview. What this proves is that America and the Western world is just as totalitarian as the Islamic Republic of Iran and the religion of Islam.
The Muslim world’s intense reaction to the anti-Islam film which originated from America is a reminder that blasphemous offenses to totalitarian cultures and religions are not tolerated. People want their beliefs to be validated and consider them sacrosanct. Both rational criticism and monstrous insults are forbidden.
In Islam, Muhammad’s image can’t be criticized because it is sacred; in the West the official 9/11 story can’t be criticized because it is sacred. The claim that there is freedom of speech in America and the West is a big lie. Sure, you can criticize Islam and foreign countries, but there are social and political restrictions upon speech when the 9/11 lie or the crimes of Israel are brought up for discussion.
The vicious trick that is used to cover up this blatant double standard is the “conspiracy theory” label. This label is the peaceful way of cutting off a heretic’s head in the West. It is less savage than the Islamic method of dealing with heretics and blasphemous disbelievers, but it is just as effective.
People who use the label “conspiracy theorist” in a debate about the 9/11 events are intellectual savages who have the sword of error in their hand. They can’t win the battle of ideas with rational arguments so they pull out their sword and tell you to submit to the official U.S. line on 9/11 or face the axe of ridicule. The individuals who refuse to kneel are branded as “conspiracy theorists,” and “crazy truthers.”
This has to be the dark ages because we’re definitely not living in an enlightened civilization. We are going through another episode of collective madness in the history of mankind.
There is so much censorship in the U.S. and the West that when one little fact about 9/11 penetrates through the fog of propaganda it is viewed as a big success. And censorship is not even the biggest barrier to truth. The religious nature of the 9/11 story makes it that much more difficult for the voices of reason in the 9/11 truth movement to get anywhere with people who are still in denial.
It’s not the fog of propaganda that blocks the penetration of the truth about 9/11, but the sky of religious thought that dominates how people think about 9/11. Millions of people are religiously wedded to the official account of 9/11. Saying 9/11 was an inside job in the West is like saying Muhammad was a pedophile in the Muslim world. The reaction to 9/11 truth statements is blind rage, hate, and contempt. And it is deeply religious.
The Muslim extremists who are burning American flags in response to a stupid anti-Islam film (at least that’s how it appears on the surface) are just as irrational as 9/11 truth deniers in the West who symbolically burn 9/11 truth documentaries and books by rejecting them as “conspiracy theories.” The difference is a matter of degrees.
Preventing the circulation of ideas, facts, and opinions is the worst crime in society. The Stalinists and Goebbelites who hijacked the American government under the cover of terror are as bad as the torturers of the Inquisition. But there is at least some sort of civilized society left because the truthers haven’t been burned yet.
It speaks to the political development of America and Western civilization that Western governments have not used violence against the truthers to intimidate them into silence and crush dissent.
But even if violence is used in the future, it cannot stop the truth about 9/11 from being known. The 9/11 truth movement will continue to expand because it is based on rational arguments, public evidence, and the use of reason.
On September 11, 2012, Glenn Greenwald spoke about the current state of knowledge about the 9/11 events and the political handling of new 9/11 findings in a conversation with Sam Seder, host of The Majority Report. Greenwald said:
Greenwald says that the reason why it is difficult to change collective perceptions of the U.S. government, the U.S. media, and American society in general is the power of the American mythology to blind the American people to the reality of present day America. He said:
It is inevitable that the 9/11 mythology will collapse. No earthly political authority can suppress the truth and the cry of justice. The voice of reason will have the last say in the 9/11 debate, not totalitarian propaganda and political fantasy.
