George Monbiot charges that infatuation with the 9/11 conspiracy film Loose Change turns opponents of the Bush government into “gibbering idiots.”People believe Loose Change because it proposes a closed world: comprehensible, controllable, small. Despite the great evil which runs it, it is more companionable than the chaos which really governs our lives, a world without destination or purpose. This neat story draws campaigners away from real issues — global warming, the Iraq war, nuclear weapons, privatisation, inequality — while permanently wrecking their credibility.
What poor ignorant fools they are. The truth is – the 9/11 theorists don’t go FAR ENOUGH. Why have NONE of them spoken of the space aliens who telepathically commandeered the planes, causing them to crash??? Only the DELIBERATELY BLIND will not see the space aliens were acting on behalf of their OVERLORDS in the FEDERAL RESERVE and WALL STREET who made BILLIONS from it and who are TIGHTENING their control on all of us. In fact, by NOT REVEALING the OBVIOUS TRUTH, the 9/11 theorists clearly show themselves to be PART OF the conspiracy they pretend to uncover. (Wiping foam from mouth…)
Hundreds of scientists with no axe to grind as well as CounterPunch have conclusively shown that the Twin Towers and Pentagon damage happened because planes hit them. That the evidence is consistent this, and not with some bizarre conspiracy that tens of thousands participated in for no apparent motive will, of course, not dent the skulls of the 9/11 theorists. That’s the weakest link in their long chain of flimsy logic. What’s the motive for US government to destroy the Twin Towers? Answer. There is none nor do they present a motive. Apparently they can’t believe that a handful of Arabs and Muslims could have done it alone, so therefore it must have been a massive conspiracy involving all levels of US government – which is a racist and elitist assumption, America as the superior power.
There are plenty of real injustices and problems out there. So why waste time with 9/11 conspiracy garbage which deflects potentially useful energy into unproductive back channels where it accomplishes nothing. Predatory capitalism and global warming are two obvious problems which need attention now. Not half-baked 9/11 conspiracy theories.
