911Truth is Dead - Long live the truthers

The truth movement has run it's course and done its dash
where's the love gone ?
the black shirt truth movement has done it's work.
fractured , pulverised, brown shirted the thinking
of the truth movement as a whole.
this of course was the plan from the start.
the more we let real truth be played like the next cool thing,
it will be treated like an exciting fad.
it was, and it's been buried as such.
i predict no-one will march or protest at ground zero on 911 2008.
a handful of people might be trying to flog the last of their cd's.
all the while whining about getting no support,
but it's over. it's done.
the fight was won and lost right under our noses.
i must admit i didn't see it happening until it was too late as well.
the meme of the black shirt and holding a sign in the street,
all with the same theme, thinking the same 'allowed' thoughts, killed
people like "alex jones" have given us a scripted allowed book to
he even makes us pay for it, and the general population is told by
a new internet govt was is "subversive" and "allowed thinking".
people are intimidated in real life, and sometimes threatened,
and are always marginalised and alienated,
if they think for themselves.
isn't this out of the frying pan into the fire?
if someone yells "inside job" it doesn't make them more accountable,
less real, more credible. all of the new evils were brought about
with old revoltuions. a new poison is still poison.
does your local truth group tell you what theories are acceptable ?.
think about it. do they ?
do they say "mr and mrs average won't dig it" ?
i have made a point of always reminding people to think for
with the infestation of the net, by govt bloggers,
not being a part of a crowd, or group thinking is the best place to
lets face it, not many people believe the official stories of the
four big planned events [and more] .
so with such an obvious truth,
censorship is not possible.
but muddying the waters is.
no - planers are usually blamed with this role.
but lets face it,
any group which makes you pay fees,
or buy cd's ,
and tells you what theories are "acceptable"
and manipulates you into action for them,
is surely just another massacre waiting to happen.
i have become aware that it is too late for us to change the bigger
we let it go too long.
yes you and me, we pray to the money god too.
just like they do, that's all this is.
they think they own the world now -
it's sounds stupid i know, but they do,
and we bought our way into their master plan like good worker ants.
just make sure you get ur black shirt and stand on the street corner
with the right sign.
there's a good boy.

Can Truth Retain Its Independence?
(Followup Article to 9-11 Truth is Dead.)

Justin Raimondo has a good column from Antiwar.com. It is written as a fundraiser. But what it shows is that journalists (and whistle-blowers) who tell the truth in America are more likely to be pummeled than rewarded, whereas those who lie for powerful interest groups live high on the hog.
It wasn’t just Bush, Cheney, and the neoconservatives who deceived us into an illegal war in behalf of a hidden agenda. It was the American media. Raimondo names some of the culprits who are complicit in the deaths of some one million Iraqis, an unknown number of Afghans, and thousands of American soldiers.
It was all for a lie. A lie told by the President of the United States and his handmaidens in the media.
Two of the worst handmaidens, Billy Kristol and Thomas Friedman, have been rewarded for their treachery to America by the New York Times, which pays these men, who have never been right about anything, to pontificate from columns on its pages. Others, such as Peter Beinart, are installed at the Washington Post and other publications.
The benefit of being a name columnist at a name newspaper is that it puts you on the lucrative speaking circuit. Raimondo reports, for example, that Friedman is paid $65,000 for a speech.
Such extravagant fees are not paid for words of wisdom. They are paid by interest groups for service. Even if Friedman had anything intelligent to say, it is unnecessary to pay him $65,000 to repeat what he writes in the New York Times.
The same interest groups that control the government offer the most extravagant fees on the speaking circuit. Global corporations that are driving up their stock prices and management bonuses by moving American jobs offshore reward journalists who write propaganda about the benefits of globalism. The military-security complex rewards journalists that feed hysteria about terrorism and foreign threats.
There are far better columnists available than Friedman and Kristol. There’s Raimondo himself. There’s Alexander Cockburn, Jeffrey St. Clair, Pat Buchanan, Lew Rockwell, to name just a few. If the print media had columnists of intelligence and integrity explaining events, instead of propagandists for government and interest groups, the United States would not have wasted eight years (so far) in pointless, illegal, and immoral wars of aggression that have been financed by foreign loans, thus sapping the strength of the dollar and American power.
In America, money, not truth, has the power. If the New York Times had Cockburn instead of Friedman and the Washington Post had Raimondo instead of Beinart, the newspapers would lose advertising revenues and connections with the power brokers.
The same problem exists outside the media. Studies produced by think tanks and university professors serve the causes of those who finance them. Does anyone think we will ever see a study from the American Enterprise Institute, for example, that is critical of Israel’s policy toward the Palestinians, the military-industrial complex, or the offshoring of American jobs? With rare exceptions, think tanks serve the interests of donors.
Even in universities there is not much of the academic freedom that we hear so much about. The Israel Lobby was able to reach into an American Catholic university and deny tenure to a fine scholar, Norman Finkelstein, who refused to obey the rule against truthfully examining Israeli policy and behavior.
Try to find an academic economist who will describe the devastation that offshoring has brought to the American economy and the economic prospects of US labor.
Try to find an academic physicist who will express in public his doubts about the official explanation for the collapse of the three World Trade buildings. An academic career in physics is almost totally dependent on government research grants. By bringing federal funding to education, liberals handed government the power to control. One physicist who expressed his doubts about the collapse of the twin towers, Steven Jones, was terminated by BYU at the insistence of the federal government, which held the power of the purse over the university’s head.
The same constraint on truth exists everywhere. I once asked the proprietor of a distinguished engineering firm why he didn’t publicly express his doubts about the World Trade Center buildings. He said it would be the end of his business, that he would be denounced as an anti-American and demonized as a terrorist sympathizer. The fact that he would be an expert giving an expert opinion would carry no weight.
The same resistance to truth is found in scholarship where enormous vested interests are entrenched. Taking on these vested interests is most often a career-ending event.
Even when the US had an independent press with independent points of view, hysteria could sweep the country in wrong-headed directions. Today it is easier than ever.
Even when research and scholarship were dependent on philanthropic foundations that supported independent views, academic fraud was not uncommon. Today many academics are bought and paid for.
When government and special interests finance education and research, and the media is concentrated in a few large corporations dependent on government broadcast licenses, there is not much room left for truth.
Consequently, today we have the Internet and a new generation of documentary film makers who, together, provide the information, opinions and research that the media, the universities, and the think tanks cannot provide. These sources are our last best hope.
Scientist and philosopher Michael Polanyi said that truth required people to believe in it as a force independent of material interests and intellectual dogmas and to relentlessly seek it. Truth is a belief system, he said, and if we cease to believe in it, it will disappear.
