This excellent post from Washington’s blog was originally titled; The failure to investigate 9/11 has bankrupted America financially and morally but that is not true of course. It has bankrupted the entire Western world both morally and financially.
It allowed our masters to take us to war all over the globe.
NATO with all it’s European members is just as culpable in the genocidal and ongoing tidal wave of mass destruction and murder currently ravaging the middle east. The wars are ravaging the moral fiber of our communities as the MSM propagandises us into believing that there are more than a billion irrate Muslims out to get us while we stuff ourselves with GMO and chemically processed “foods” and do nothing other than watch “reality” TV and sports.
It allowed our masters to let the banking system run amok
It allowed our masters to let the banking system run amok while they pointed at our terrorist enemy du jour and they looted us with their tax cuts for the rich and their fiat currency. And as the system collapses around us we are played against each other; Pakeha against Maori against Chinese. South Europe against North Europe. Greek against Turks and Left against right.
It allowed the ultra rich to manipulate our anger and our discontent
It allowed the ultra rich to manipulate our anger and our discontent to the point were we actually thought that they were right. We voted in a guy who has $ 50 million with most of it in shares in one of the most corrupt entities in the world; the Banks of America, because he was a hard nosed businessman who would see us Kiwi’s right and even when he told us that he was going to sell our home from under our arses there were still enough of us who thought he would see us right because we were frightened enough and angry enough to not want to see the truth.
The thought that for 11 years we have believed in a myth brought to us by the super rich who did not allow any real investigation of 9/11 would be to bad to bear. As Hitler said: tell a lie, tell it often enough and they will believe it.
The failure to investigate 9/11 did indeed set the stage for the rot we see around us today.
