What happened on 9/11? Part II
Have you never looked beyond the history textbooks they gave you in those mandatory prisons they call schools? Have you never questioned authority or the rules? Why does this bureaucratic system based on crude and elitist psychology of the masses allow small groups of people to make decisions that affect the rest of the population?
In our schools, our churches and our media, the American dream makes it seem like the government is good. Everywhere you are taught that if you work hard, you can achieve anything. For some this is true. While the privileged few keep benefitting from the system, “America” will keep fighting wars, and the news stations will keep showing us politicians appearing in front of audiences who clap when told to, talking heads in the media will keep debating over who can enunciate the pledge of allegiance in the most convincing manner, arguing over who most powerfully articulates his or her belief in liberty, freedom, democracy, justice, America, the good old days, the shining city on a hill. Where the military-industrial complex drives corporate imperialists to creatively find new ways to gut the earth of natural resources and fund an oil-based economy that sells sex, hedonism, celebrity-status, overpriced commodities and clothing, mass-produced food, Easter bunnies and Santa Clauses, holiday shopping seasons, thanksgiving day parades, award shows, red carpet ceremonies, gossip magazines and paparazzi, jewelry, luxurious cars, big houses, fancy watches, designer bags, purses, the items with celebrity endorsements that make you want to purchase them, the sitcom and reality television shows, the political debates, the news stations, the newspapers, the corporate media, the networks, the commercials, the advertisements, the rappers, the bottle-popping, money-spending “mainstream hip-hop,” the talented artists-turned-figureheads, the actors and singers, the promiscuous models and half-naked women in ads, the logos and slogans, the jingles and patriotic songs, the flags, the red white and blue, the presidents, the wars, the military draft, the schools, the prisons, the court system and house of justice, the judges and lawyers and juries and principles we stand by, the invincible American government who rigged the 2000 election to make George W. Bush “our president,” the bureaucratic school systems with hierarchical structures, where principals and school boards are pawns for maintaining a governmental program forcing everyone to adhere to national standards, the mandatory aptitude tests and required menial tasks, the multiple choice answer options, the dates and names in history textbooks, the police officers, the CIA, the FBI, the colleges and universities, the blind nationalism, the illusion of patriotism, the abuse of religious rhetoric, the absence of spirituality, the destruction of the environment, the oil-mining, diamond industry, rain forest removing, highway building, technologically driven modernist surge, the effects of industrialization, rationalization, the glorification of colonization, the rise of consumer capitalism, the public relations teams, the manipulators of mass culture, they’re selling the American democratic corporation and its president–like fascist governments sold their nationalistic power-hungry dictators, the legal system, the reason you pay your taxes, the nation with over 1,000 military bases across the atlas, the briefcases, dollar bills, suits, ties and servants, the constitution that originally justified the use of slaves, the Declaration of Independence that declares the right to revolution, the capitol city with its national monuments replicating classical architecture from past global empires and world powers, the columns and Georgian triangles you see in front of governmental buildings, schools and courthouses, the right to vote, the voting booths and ballot boxes, the corporately funded and privately picked representatives of the people, the stock market, the creation of false desires, the trends, the boom and bust cycles, the need to expand and increase profits, the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the economic collapse, the economic recession, unemployment rates, public opinion based on polls, flag poles, military spending, student loan debt, the acceptance speeches and award ceremonies, the sensationalism of doctrinal platitudes, the socialization, the propaganda, the correctness of politics, the option of picking your ruler from one of two names on a piece of paper and walking away thinking you are exercising your right to be a politically active citizen, the Democrats, the Republicans, the conservatives and neoliberals, the right and the left, the bi-partisan policy debates, the Congress, the economy, the protocols of politics, the manufactured consent of the masses, the society, the accusations of socialist tendencies, the anti-Communist purges, the false flag operations, the Reichstag fire and terrorist attack on the parliamentary building, the attack on the Pentagon, the Homeland Security Act, the Reichstag fire decree, the War on Terror, the attack on the twin towers. Are you not wondering: what happened on 9/11?
