9/11 and THE SOCIAL ENGINEERING MEMES

Last Sunday I blogged about 9.11, but did not, in deference to the moment, say everything I wanted to say. But I cannot help but look back upon the event with the eyes of a "social engineer," and look how the event served to inject new "memes" into our society, the first and most outstanding of which is the meme of perpetual war, and perpetual fear. There can be no doubt that, regardless of what "scenario" one constructs around the event, that it has been used to promote a new kind of enemy, a hidden enemy, that can strike anywhere, and any time, and during the weekend media run-up to the anniversary of that event, we were treated to near-endless replays of the twin towers being struck, with stories about a "credible threat" in New York City and Washington DC, and even, if one was paying attention, Kansas City...

...and then came the meme: Be vigilant, report anything suspicious...

...and that, too, is the new meme: become a snitch, be on the lookout for "suspicious" activity or things, with "suspicious"  here left conveniently undefined. The enemy, here, is also conveniently both external and internal.The events of that day have begun the slow hollowing out of America into a "snitch culture," with the new "suspensions" of civil liberties and ever-present danger in the lives of every citizen, should they be acting too "suspicious." Preemptive action could now be taken against nations, or private citizens, just provide a "credible" threat, and action was warranted.

Then there came the other meme of 9/11: the US began to demonize nations, cultures, as "evil," and so long as that demonization could in some fashion be fastened to 9/11, it became a carte blanche for a whole new and agressive imperialism. As one author has recently put it: We were free to pursue "evil" wherever it was found. (See Willie Wonka & the National Security State)

Add to this potent mix another event: the killing of Osama Bin Laden (or, whoever). Not only could we pursue evil, we could, when that evil was found, assassinate it without trial, and then destroy all the forensic evidence that would allow one to determine if indeed it was even Osama Bin Laden.

The result of 9.11 has been the injection of American military power into Afghanistan, Iraq, and now new actions against Libya, sanctions against Syria... you get the picture.

The infrastructures for the "war on terror" were put into place after 9.11, and that infrastructure, has now become permanent for the long term, and the New Cold War is upon us, but this war, even more than the last one, is using propaganda to a new depth and degree never envisioned before, and fear, and suspicion, have become the new measures of "good vs. evil."

And we note the final meme, paraded before us on the news this weekend: the presence of heavily armed "police" on our city streets, in response to a threat we're told is credible, inspecting people's bags and parcels...

...the only thing missing, is the grade-B movie German accent, saying "Your papers, please..."

  1. Eric Blair last book published posthumosly under his pen name George Orwell 1984 lays it all out as for America becoming a snitch culture it allways was it only how much depened on the political situation. Whether it was witchs,slave revolts,native uprisings and attacks,satanic mence,yellow peril and the list is endless the Islamic mence is ironicly is a return to the dark ages and military disaster the crusades help by equal maglomanic desire of Islamic world domination the mirror image of the Christian meglomanic desires this will be worse than the cold war and the joke is only a small minority in both camps that what this.

  2. I think it strange that the “Patriot Act” was written, ready and waiting
    weeks before 9/11, but not given to Congress, of course,
    until they were told they didn’t have time to read it.

    Congress no longer writes laws (don’t you know?)
    Lobbyists (lawyers) do and then find a congressional sponsor.
    Oops! Well that cat has been loose for quite a while.

  3. the last few posts from you are all so spot-on, that I wish MSNBC would contract you as an alternative replacement for Olbermann.

  4. The criminal Montag has been found and killed in glorious live footage from our police helicopter…

    Gil Scott-Heron did a great set of satire songs in the 80s (“Re-Ron” and “B Movie”, among others) which nailed the political picture of the times dead on. I should check and see if he is still writing – today’s world seems like so much really terrible C or D (or Z) movie nonsense even compared to those days – he would have a hard time keeping up with the weirdness.

    On the other hand, I still have to agree with Hunter S Thompson, it STiLL isn’t quite weird enough for me……

    Hard to believe that I find all the chaos and disintegration strangely calming and familiar. I guess I was born in this time for some reason.

  5. “Doesn’t matter what you see, or in to it what you read. You can do it your own way, if it’s done just how I say.” ~ James Hetfield

    These words were written in the late 80’s (88 I believe), put into today’s context it still is an apt sentiment.

  6. As I don’t believe that an direct energy beam weapon was used at the WTC towers on 9/11, I thought I would post this which I came across today. [oh and I’m also of the belief that Israel played the major part of what happened so I’m probably antisemitic or something lol … but anyway …]

    Could something like this nuclear “gun” have been used on 9/11 inside the tower??. I am of the feeling now that something … a bomb of some sort may have been set off in the lift shaft (maybe some sort of nano thermite or whatever) and the central support structures melted/destroyed and atomised the rest of it etc etc etc … rather than some exotic beam weapon being used

    [Oh and this beam weapon … was it directed at the towers … or did it somehow go off inside the towers?? … can anyone fill me in on that aspect of it??]

    1. Look at the evidence. There is neither need nor room for belief. Where did the material disappear? Aerial pictures taken in the afternoon show that most of the towers’ material just isn’t there anymore. Whatever they sent to China, it couldn’t have amounted to much. There is no known explosive with these characteristics. Obviously, the pool has been so muddied that finding the truth is now extremely difficult. Piling lies upon more lies is one way to cover up the fact that, whoever did 911, stumbled from one blunder into the next without pause. It looks like somebody’s plans where crossed by someone else’s plans. In fact, it looks like war. Or it looks as if the Incompetents’ Olympics have been held on 911.

  7. I received Dr. Judy Wood’ book “Where Did The Towers Go” yesterday.

    At first glance it’s appears to be a literary engineering masterpiece.

    Everybody in the world should read this book.

    1. it most definately is a masterpiece, the Truth will always win out and Dr Judy is an Angel of Truth.

      God Bless Dr Judy Wood, and Joseph Farrell too!

    2. “The book you hold in your hands is the most important book of the twenty-first century.”

      –opening sentence from the forward to “WHERE DID THE TOWERS GO?” by Eric Larsen

  8. Thank you Dr Farrell for sharing that article from the boilingfrogpost. I didn’t know that place existed, but is a very great and very astute article/essay.
    Thanks for bringing it to my/our attention!

    Reminds me of an old Erza Pound quote, “The danger is not that you will be invaded, it is that you have been invaded.”.

  10. How far we’ve come since WWII and the Nuremberg Trials. In many ways they were mere show trials, and far from civilized standards of justice, but we at least pretended the German and Japanese leaders had to first be convicted of “war crimes” before they were executed. Now, we seize an unarmed Osama, hand-cuff him, and shoot him in the head and brag about how brave and just we are. And no American leaders ever fear war crimes tribunals, no matter how many innocent Iraqis, Pakistanis, et cet. they kill.

  11. Dont worry…its on its way out, just keep doing your little part…see the trees from the forest and look at those trees you missed…plenty of awesomeness happening out there if you first accept it’s possible…

    Adonai!

  12. If there is good news to be found in this, it’s that the powers that wish to rule the world are truly frightened, their only tactics being fear and repression and their only method, the violent use of force are now failing and exposing them and their plan for all to see in it’s brutal reality. One can almost sense the onset of their death throse. The wretched of the Earth are about to win.

  13. That linked Paul Fitzgerald and Elizabeth Gould article sure is better than yesterday’s very simple minded free market dung.

    That “‘your papers, please'” law already exists in Arizona.
