Its History, Dude.
While participating in a 911 Truth street action a couple of years ago I heard a curt, yet memorable, comment from a passerby. Managing to catch the attention of a college student coasting along on a skateboard, I quickly asked, “Want to know the truth about 9/11?”
Dismissing my offer of a copy of Loose Change, he answered, “Its history, Dude” and continued on his way. I had to admit, in his own way, he was right. He saw no current relevance in 9/11. It was a succinct confirmation of something I had long suspected.
The 911 Truth movement is comprised of folks and opinions that span the political spectrum. One would think it has the makings of a successful and cogent mass movement. Dedicated individuals have documented indisputable forensic evidence refuting the government version. Grassroots groups have courageously engaged the public by way of local media and on the street. However, the movement remains marginalized and misunderstood. Years after the event, we are not much nearer to justice and closure for the crimes of 9/11/01 than we are for the lies of the Gulf of Tonkin.
Given the scope and diversity of the movement and its members, it is difficult to make generalizations. A subjective view based on personal experience, however, reveals a preoccupation with “single issue” orientation. Dedicated to a false flag event occurring during the Bush administration, it is held captive to a specific day in history. Arguably, keeping things “single issue”, and nonpartisan, has its merits: It’s about a crime and its resolution. It is about justice for the victims and perpetrators.
In reality, however, people have political and value based motivations for their involvement in the Truth movement. We are concerned about this government crime just as we are concerned about all government crimes, past and present. We are concerned about the world we live in today. 9/11 is only one example of staged terrorism used by the power elite to destroy freedoms and liberties. It is only one example of a rogue government paid off to serve financial interests contradictory to the welfare of its citizenry. It is only one example of government sponsored murder.
It is the quintessential window into the workings of the New World Order. It was the signal event, and pretext, marking the transformation from a republic to a police state. For some, public exposure and criminal charges brought against the secret players behind 9/11 would be an ending. For others, it would only be the beginning to dismantle the Orwellian global empire and restore our Constitution. It is the one test question we pose to politicians. Their response to the idea of reopening an honest investigation will define them as true patriots or as waffling quislings.
9/11 paved the way for two wars in the Middle East and laid the political foundation for a domestic surveillance control grid. It is no coincidence that the ruling elite now have a police state apparatus in place to control anticipated rebellion as they rob and enslave the population. With the connivance of their puppet governments the Anglo-American private banking cartel is in overdrive to consolidate its power.
One thing is certain. Keeping 911 activism single issue oriented also serves the interests of the ruling elite:
The objective of the corporate elites has been to fragment the people’s movement into a vast “do it yourself” mosaic. War and globalization are no longer in the forefront of civil society activism. Activism tends to be piecemeal. There is no integrated anti-globalization anti-war movement. The economic crisis is not seen as having a relationship to the US led war. Dissent has been compartmentalized. Separate “issue oriented” protest movements (e.g. environment, anti-globalization, peace, women’s rights, climate change) are encouraged and generously funded as opposed to a cohesive mass movement. This mosaic was already prevalent in the counter G7 summits and People’s Summits of the 1990s.
It would be folly to assume that the 911 Truth movement is surreptitiously funded by any globalist financial concern for the purpose of control. Logically, it does not wash. However, the working principle of keeping the movement “piecemeal” and not fully integrated into an anti-war, anti-globalist movement can be just as devastating.
De facto complicity
Solely focusing on 9/11 as a crime perpetrated by a Republican administration, not only isolates it from the pertinent issues of the day, but also allows it to be exploited by those that benefit from the left/right paradigm charade. During an almost seamless transition from the Bush administration servile to the banker cartel, to the Obama regime, equally as servile, many in the Truth movement chose to remain “single issue”, and by that, de facto complicit. The wars continue. The Patriot Act continues. The debt-slavery impoverishment of Americans continues.
Within the Truth movement there are proclamations of a general mission to “advance the insight that ending a world in which 9/11-type and other “synthetic” events dictate the agenda, requires the fall of.., secret government and hidden economics”. Some activists, however, noticeably avoid the related hot topics of today. In a time of unprecedented awakening to the New World Order (NWO), there are those who explicitly undermine attempts to place 9/11 outside of the phony left/right paradigm. My former participation in a local Truth group that was dominated by a left-progressive clique disclosed the true danger of single issue activism.
Typically, meetings were structured around a video and discussion solely focusing 9/11. Tangential subjects were barely tolerated. I remember one poor chap being admonished, “We are not here to talk about the Federal Reserve. You should go to other groups for that.” Facilitators were fond of the mantra, “Draw your own conclusions. We’re nonpolitical here.” Needless to say, the meetings remained meagerly attended.
Their style of street activism matched that of the meetings. In the fall of 2008, I was compelled to consider how many people I influenced to vote for so called Hope and Change by honoring the apolitical ideal. At street actions and tabling events I’m sure many people mechanically took a DVD or fact sheet and made more of a connection with ‘evil’ Republicans than with the real issue – a singular “bipartisan”, long-term agenda of incremental fascism.
All activities were noticeably accompanied with aggressive intel gathering on activists and sympathizers ostensibly for a contact list. True to form, the Left elitist penchant for information collection and control was in evidence. Drawing my own conclusions, when my efforts to frame 9/11 within an NWO context, democratize the group, and protect personal information privacy of participants, began to take up as much time and energy as actual activism, decidedly, it was time to give up on these people and move on.
The Left, who naïvely yearn for socialist paradise, can comfort themselves that 9/11 must be the result of “right-wing capitalism”. Single issue orientation allows them no need to think past the comfortable left/right modality. It allows them to demonize conservatives and, at the same time, wear the cosmetic of “non-partisanship”. A long history of false flag events, engineered by global financial elites pulling the strings on both capitalist and socialist governments, becomes moot. In the end, Left gate keeping helps the ruling class to maintain polarization and political impotence among the masses. In addition, socioeconomic structures based on Left ideology are necessarily top-down and elitist. Therefore, collectivists are more keen to portray 9/11 as a singular GOP deed than as a common device to herd a given population into compliance. Like pro TV wrestlers, elitists, and their agents, stay within a predetermined choreography.
Equivalent to Tea Party co-optation and sabotage by Neo-cons, the Left can seize leadership of the Truth movement in like fashion. Soul mates of the eugenicist, war making, fascist elite, left collectivists continually maneuver to posture themselves as the legitimate opposition. Caught between the ever unfolding corporatist agenda of the Obama administration and the burgeoning populism that defies the GOP/Dem dichotomy, the socialist Left will be forced to acknowledge NWO issues. Thus far, the most effective Left co-optation of the genuine Anti-NWO movement is the Zeitgeist Movement. Farsighted left totalitarians have scored a major victory in the propaganda war with Zeitgeist, The Movie (2007). The P.R. film for the Venus Project, a scheme claiming to solve war and poverty with a ‘resource based social system’, Zeitgeist is a factual exposé of 9/11 and the private banking oligarchy.* Along with a bashing of major religions against a thematic backdrop of Gaian-esque reverence for mother earth, the message is clear: Down with the New World Order, long live our New World Order! Making use of the 9/11 tragedy to promote global, hive-mind, communism as a cure for the ills of crony state capitalism becomes obvious.
Our goal is to not let 9/11 fade into the unforgiving prison of time. The planners and financiers must be brought to justice. By its very nature single issue activism does not address the system that enables and protects the perpetrators. For many, 9/11 is indeed history. It is the system of tyranny that is still with us and still very relevant. The victims will only see true justice when tyranny falls.

 ZEITGEIST MOVEMENT AND THE VENUS PROJECT – AN ANALYSIS
© 2008 – 2011 by G. Edward Griffin. Updated 2011 March 23: http://www.freedomforceinternational.org/freedomcontent.cfm?fuseaction=zeit_addendum&refpage=issues
*As of this writing there are new developments regarding the Venus Project and the Zeitgeist Movement. An apparent falling out between the two has occurred. Read more: http://www.conspiracyarchive.com/Blog/?p=4317
Ron Paul and his Campaign for Liberty (CFL) have worked tirelessly for freedom and for the restoration of the Constitution. A progenitor of the Tea Party movement, its message of anti-statism and personal liberty has come to undeniably influence a major rebellion against Big Govt. A populist denunciation of corporatist fascism is apparent in the 2010 midterm elections.
Born amid neoconservative betrayal of GOP principles, the CFL is the real hope and change to stop endless wars of aggression and occupation. It has been singularly outspoken and defiant against the spurious “War on Terror” inspired police state.
However, as in every classic epic, the hero has a fatal flaw that will prove to be his undoing later in the story. For Ron Paul and the CFL leadership, the obvious Achilles heel is their silence on the truth of 9/11. Dodging this issue in the obsession to win elections will prove to be a costly tactical error. The evidence of 9/11 being an inside job abounds. Further, to even the casual student of history, it is a blatant repeat of a “burning of the Reichstag” to terrorize the population into submission to tyranny and illegal wars of conquest. It is the 800 pound gorilla in the living room we pretend is not there. No, actually, it’s the halfwit cousin that always ruins the family reunion, but we keep inviting him because we think it’s the right thing to do.
Thanks to the present Faux News induced conservative mindset, the right thing to do for Republican Party candidates is to talk tough on terrorism. If they don’t.., well, the fear of losing their power base eclipses any sincere motive to stand by a commitment to freedom. In large part, the 2010 elections will be defined as a substantial boost for neocons repackaged as Tea Party patriots and as a disappointment for those hoping to stop the New World Order.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11
No surprise here. Backed into a corner, career Democrat politicians, facing the prospect of pink slips, will be looking closer at 9/11. A false flag event occurring under a Republican administration, it is ripe, and waiting, to be exploited by desperate progressives witnessing their demise. Rest assured, though, any new investigation instigated by the left-wing of “The Powers That Be” will be a whitewash as much as the original 9/11 Commission Report . Truthers need not get excited.
The real tragedy lies in the fact that Dr. Paul and the hierarchy of the CFL have dropped the ball. Democrats will use 9/11 to demonize all Republicans; neocon, Tea Partier, and Paulista, alike. Ironically, the activists, to whom it was incumbent upon to expose and destroy the New World Order, have handed 9/11 to those that are imposing a controlled and regulated society. 9/11 will be a tool for merely bashing Bush, the Republican, and not a rightful rallying point to expose and defeat the financial power elite. Hopefully, this recent announcement by Colorado Democrats will spur freedom lovers to do the real right thing.
 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: October 29, 2010
Colorado Democratic Party Calls for Grand Jury Investigation of 9/11
The 2010 Colorado Democratic Party platform, approved by the 146 member platform committee states: “The Colorado Democratic Party calls for the establishment of a truly independent Grand Jury and public investigation in order to find the truth of the September 11, 2001 attacks.” This controversial plank was added to the State Democratic Party Platform after evidence supporting the critical need for a new investigation was presented at several caucuses in 2004, 2008, and 2010. The citizens who presented arguments for a new investigation at their precinct caucuses are signatories to the Architect and Engineers for 9/11 Truth organization (ae911Truth.org) which calls for a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. The quality of evidence contradicting the official 9/11 story is substantiated in part by the 2010 Platform Committee Chairman Hal Bidlack’s statement: “ ….this platform represents the consensus of the 2010 Platform Committee, guided by the results of county assemblies across our state.
The folks who worked tirelessly on the Committee can rightly be proud of their efforts, and deserve our special thanks.” (Bidlack’s statement can be found on page one of the 2010 platform) In the upcoming Colorado election, Green Party U.S. Senatorial candidate Bob Kinsey and District One U.S. Representative candidate Gary Swing have publicly stated they would support a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001.

 The 9/11 Commission Report: A 571-Page Lie: http://www.911truth.org/article.php?story=20050523112738404
A real threat to the Anglo-American banking empire, the Tea Party’s tax revolt message could destabilize the financial engine that empowers the imperialist war machine and the socioeconomic totalitarianism that accompanies it.
Unfortunately, while Neocons are moving to co-opt and sabotage the Tea Party from within, the establishment statist Left are engaging in a frontal assault. Both of these lackeys of the elite are desperate to defuse the populist challenge to the present paradigm. Virtually working in a coordinated effort, Neocons are injecting militarist jingoism into this movement, comprised of fed up and frustrated everyday Americans happily unschooled in political correctness, giving the disingenuous Left fertile ground to attack the Tea Party as racist and fascist.
If your only source of information is mainstream corporate news, the ideological roots of the Tea Party are completely obscured. We passively watch TV and infer throngs of conservative white folks primarily complaining about “that Black guy in the White house”. Started during the Bush years by Ron Paul pro-Constitution activists the original attempt to recapture the ideals of the founders of our republic is long lost from the picture.
Helping to perpetuate the charade professional Republicrat henchmen, serving the banker-military complex, will do their best to cloak this timely populism and ideological mass appeal. They will continue to depend on their respective Democrat and Republican congregations to swallow the lie that there is a substantial difference between each party. Faithfully, they will plant campaign yard signs for Henchman A or Henchman B on their front lawns. Tea Partiers, themselves, will allow neocon and status quo media celebrities, such as Palin and Beck, to speak for them.
Author, David Icke, succinctly warns, “anyone who seeks to prevent the free expression of thought by anyone else is an agent of control and they should know that before their self-delusion leads to the very fascist Orwellian state they claim to oppose.” Pseudo revolutionaries, on the left, will continue to harangue “tea baggers” in condescending and meaningless tirades. Robot radicals will be willing stooges in parroting misrepresented views of any alternative outside of the corporatist mandated Left/Right paradigm. They will enthusiastically work for their own eventual destruction.
African-American Tea Partiers will continue to befuddle leftist ideologues. Anomalous to the standard Left/Right paradigm are Black conservatives. The Leninist concept of Black Nationalism, as a tool to topple the white racist ruling class, is blunted upon the rock of individualism. Freedom and the spirit of enterprise are attractions that cut across racial lines.
Nevertheless, Marxists will exhort the oppressed Blacks. A current socialist propagandist writes, “.., the national liberation struggle of Black people in the U.S. must include the heightening of national consciousness, identity and self-respect. But these are not the same as nationalism, an ideology a world outlook, promoted by the bourgeoisie and petty bourgeoisie that advocates the primacy; exclusiveness and privilege of “their” nation.”.
Prominent Tea Party figure, Rev. C.L. Bryant, a former president of NAACP’s Garland, Texas chapter, is one who doesn’t fall prey to the separatist hype. He says the idea that the Tea Party is racist or is trying to instigate a racist climate is “simply a lie.” Bryant claims the NAACP wants to “create a climate where they can say that those on the right are in fact racist and those on the left are their saviors”…
What is the Tea Party?
One activist writer accurately captures its populist nature and potential: “Do any of us even know how to define a Liberal or a Conservative these days? After all, in 8 years of a “Conservative” president we saw preemptive interventionist wars and nation building on the backs of the taxpayer, runaway borrowing and spending, and massive growth in government. Meanwhile, the “Liberal” savior Obama continues to expand the wars, torture captives without trials or evidence, and target all forms of free speech. Where it matters most, both political parties cater to Wall Street over Main Street, while working to restrict our Constitutional rights. Fierce populist revolutions have been fought over far less oppression than we see today (see 1776), and yet the generally angry public can’t seem to focus long enough to form a strong common consensus… Indeed, the Ron Paul crowd and the Liberal crowd have much in common when it comes to very important issues such as Peace, Auditing the Fed, Individual Liberty, Economic Freedom and Justice, and the Human Rights defined in the U.S. Constitution.” .
Pollster, Scott Rasmussen, describes the mindset: “Americans don’t want to be governed from the left or the right,” Scott Rasmussen tells the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conference of 1,500 conservative and moderate legislators. “They want, like the Founding Fathers, to largely govern themselves with Washington in a supporting — but not dominant — role. The tea party movement is today’s updated expression of that sentiment… The major division in this country is no longer between parties but between political elites and the people,” Mr. Rasmussen says.”
Rasmussen also observed that, although the GOP stands to benefit in the 2010 elections, 75 percent of Republicans believe that the party leadership is out of touch with them.
War, what is it good for?
Researcher-author, William Bramley conducted a seven year investigation into the causes of war. He fully expected to find profit as the primary motivation, however, he concluded that war can also be used to encourage populations to think in ways they would not otherwise do, and to accept the formation of institutions they would normally reject. The longer a nation involves itself in wars, he noted, the more entrenched those institutions and ways of thinking will become.
The Tea Party, regardless of its current problems, conceptually embodies something new and revolutionary beyond entrenched ways of thinking. It is anomalous to generations of accumulated unquestioning reverence for, and dependence on, an all powerful centralized federal government. As its name implies, it hearkens back to an era and mental outlook unfettered by ‘endless war’, states of emergency, and presidential directives.
Riding the Tea Party wave and pandering to the rhetoric of “limited government”, the establishment GOP will, no doubt, recoup some electoral losses incurred in 2008. No fundamental change will occur. Only a people’s movement able to connect the dots between the financial elite’s wars of occupation abroad and the loss of freedom at home will be able to make revolutionary change.
Only a people’s movement, ready to fully embrace the spirit of 1776, will be able to restore our republic. A priority for peace and freedom advocates is to expose the false dichotomy offered by the Republicrat duopoly dictatorship and its singular agenda of serving the transnational financial elite. Concurrently, the masses must be reminded of their inherent capacity for local self-reliance and self-determination.

 Alien Agenda, Jim Marrs, p. 529.
The fruit of the globalists’ phony War on Terror is coming to bear. The CIA manufactured Al Qaeda threat has not only given a pretext for ever expanding unconstitutional wars of conquest and occupation, but now it should be clear that it is also employed as a rationale for a domestic police state control grid.
As the transnational banker elite moves to consolidate its robbery of Middle East infrastructure and resources, their efforts are mirrored here in the U.S. Unprecedented expansion of Federal Reserve powers, the latest health care legislation, and the continued push for carbon tax schemes, reflect a quantum leap forward in the elite’s unbridled drive to codify further impoverishment and enslavement of taxpayers. Using the Republicrat rubberstamp Congress, that no longer even pretends to be accountable to the people, the private banking cartel is solidifying its ‘occupation’ of the U.S.
In essence the Patriot Act has never been about national security. Already written and waiting on Bush’s desk the day before 9/11/01, by design, it was part of a larger agenda. Our ‘burning of the Reichstag’, 9/11, was the fear factor enabling a formula for incremental destruction of the liberties notated in our Bill of Rights. Privacy, freedom of speech, due process, and so forth, are the elements providing a way for peaceful, and effective, resistance to government tyranny.
It is no coincidence that the War on Terror has engendered ‘watch lists’ of disgruntled veterans, Ron Paul supporters, 911 Truthers, and various other pro-Constitution peace activists. It is no coincidence Pentagon controlled mass media are cooperating with Neocons to subvert and co-opt the populist uprising of Tea Party grassroots activism. It is no coincidence that the banker backed Establishment Left is demonizing Tea Party supporters as ‘racists and rightwing extremists’.
Bob Chapman, of TheInternationalForcaster.com, notes that there are now nineteen countries in bankruptcy, including the U.S. and U.K. When the bankers decide to pull the plug on stimulus injections, he adds, it will result in deflationary depression. Further, defaulting on the debt and devaluing the currency will complete the massive wealth transfer from our pockets to the coffers of the banking cartel. A major world war is in the works to be a diversion.
Now, more than ever, the likelihood of a government engineered false flag event is high. We may see a black-ops staged terrorist attack blamed on ‘rightwing extremists’ that will be used to invoke martial law. We may see another attack similar to 9/11 that will be blamed on Iran. Regardless, it is incumbent upon peace and freedom activists to prepare. We may see a complete (engineered) collapse of the economy. From the Gulf of Tonkin to 9/11, false flag events have been used to justify horrific wars and the loss of civil liberties. It will be on us to expose government machinations and stop the stampede towards war and fascism.
PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS: EXPECT FALSE FLAG ATTACK TERROR ATTACK TO PRECEDE INVASION OF IRAN: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2010/03/18/paul-craig-roberts-expect-false-flag-attack-terror-attack-to-precede-invasion-of-iran/
In the course of a few years we have witnessed a phenomenal growth of patriot sentiment. Americans are reacting against ever increasing Big Government intrusiveness, and Big Brother control over their lives, more so now than in recent memory. Motivated by mounting economic pressure, the present day is marked by self-actualizing activism independent from the phony leadership of establishment Republicans and Democrats. The veil is lifting exposing a monolithic government with the sole agenda of serving the globalist financial elite. The theatrics of warring Left/Right factions in Congress, served up by mainstream media, is quickly losing credibility.
If You Can’t Crush the Opposition.., Lead it.
Anticipating that the cat is out of the bag, the Feds are moving to head off discontent and rebellion before the imminent economic collapse. Reports of FEMA camps and a Northcom troop buildup abound. In the meantime, the corporatist propaganda machine has cleverly adapted to the current situation and is spinning a new web of deceit. Sensing that full martial law and complete destruction of freedom is momentarily premature, they are employing mass media mind control to neutralize the opposition. The globalist aligned Right, i.e., Neocon talking heads, are now donning patriot personas and attempting to convince us that their Obama bashing is all about defending Constitutional freedoms. Nevermind that a few months ago they were praising G.W. Bush for virtually the same economic and police state programs.
The Role of Fox News
While CNN’s main job is to craft the reality the elite want you to live in, Fox has always gone a step further to editorialize that reality attempting to elicit certain behaviors and attitudes. Fox’s latest creation of Glenn Beck and the 9.12 Group serve as a prime example of social engineering using one of the oldest stratagems in the book.
The ruling elite… find ways to explicitly link self-interests of the opposition, [or subsets therein], to its goals… implie[d] is not dealing stakeholders out of the game but dealing them new cards transforming opponents into supporters.*
The following excerpts from an October 10 article at Infowars.com describe Beck and 9.12 well:
Glenn Beck’s 9-12 Project is a deliberate attempt to undercut the Tea Party and patriot movements.
Earlier this year, Amy Kremer, Tea Party Patriots’ National Coordinator, said the movement was being hijacked by establishment Republicans. “We do not want it to be a GOP movement,” she told Newsmax
The stated purpose of Beck’s movement is to get America where it was on September 12, 2001, which is interesting considering Beck’s animosity toward the 9/11 truth movement and in particular the families of 9/11 victims.**
It’s about hijacking and taming the Tax Day Tea Party protests, the Independence Day Tea Party protests, and the September 12, 2009, Taxpayer March on Washington. Beck has an established track record of sabotaging the patriot movement. More than any other corporate media figure, he was responsible in wrecking the presidential campaign of Ron Paul. He characterized Paul’s supporters as dangerous terrorists and repeatedly called Paul a kook.
Few seem to see the absurdity of a corporate media television show host claiming to be the leader of a grassroots political movement. Fox News is owned by corporate media tycoon and neocon Rupert Murdoch.
Murdoch and Glenn Beck do not support the patriot movement. Beck’s role is to capture as much of the movement as possible and turn it into a harmless sideshow. The 9-12 movement, regardless of the number of sincere Americans who support it, is another attempt by the establishment to continue and magnify the false right-left paradigm and steer meaningful political change down a dead-end that renders if ineffective.
The Fox social engineers are validating frustrations and anger held by ‘middle America’ and channeling those emotions back into the misguided nationalism of the Bush years. Notice that their prowar hype and constant fear mongering of Jihadist terrorism continues. The bankster elite care little for what attitudes prevail among the masses. As long as they can maintain a war economy, a handy pretext for limiting freedoms and financial enslavement will exist.
Using the power of mass media Neocons are effectively insinuating themselves into leadership positions of the Tea Party movement. Today, more than ever, it is imperative that this genuine ‘people’s’ movement be rescued from co-optation. 9/11 Truth activists must overcome their own Left/Right biases and work with these folks to keep them on track against the New World Order and all of its schemes.
*The Politics of Co-optation:
Graziella Bertocchi and Michael Spagat
Journal of Comparative Economics
Vol. 29, Issue 4, Dec 2001
**Parenthetically, I think the author misses the point about Beck and 9/11. Beck has no interest in 9/11 Truth. His interest is recapturing the prowar/jingoist fervor that 9/11 incited.
Considering recent events, It Can’t Happen Here, by Sinclair Lewis, is a fictional novel I suddenly recall from my high school days. I chose it to read from among several suggested books during my senior year humanities class. Let’s see.., without dating myself too much, that was about the 1970’s, or so.
Published in 1935, “it is a cautionary tale about the rise of fascism in the United States. During the presidential election of 1936, Doremus Jessup, a newspaper editor, observes with dismay that many of the people he knows support the candidacy of a fascist, Berzelius Windrip. When Windrip wins the election, he forcibly gains control of Congress and the Supreme Court, and, with the aid of his personal paramilitary storm troopers, turns the United States into a totalitarian state. Jessup opposes him, is captured, and escapes to Canada.” — The Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia of Literature
My recollection is somewhat blurred by the years, but looking back, I find that the book was eerily prescient. Written well before the rest of the world knew the details about Hitler and Mussolini, it fairly outlined the classic play book version of a fascist takeover. Interestingly, although the story is meant as satire and fraught with bloated caricatures, the similarities to today are striking.
The author chooses as a protagonist, Jessup, who is described as a mild mannered Vermont Republican – a stereotypical Yankee. Jessup, among others, sees through the populist hype of Democrat, Windrip. Nevertheless, he and the conservative opposition are powerless to counter the magic of Windrip’s demagoguery…
“All the while, Walt Trowbridge, possible Republican candidate for President, suffering from the deficiency of being honest and disinclined to promise that he could work miracles, was insisting that we live in the United States of America and not on a golden highway to Utopia.“
Predictably, Windrip wins popular support and within a matter of months accomplishes what the succession of past and current, real life, CFR run, bankster contolled, tag team administrations are still in the process of doing. He destroys our Constitution and institutes a police state.
Funny.., the things you remember. Many books have influenced my thinking through the years and, like many, I have undergone a great deal of political evolution. Concepts and theory interacting with personal experience have led to a perception of things quite different from that found in standard high school civics texts. But curiously, many concepts put forward in Lewis’ story have stuck with me. And one, in particular, perhaps unbeknownst to me, has been an a priori driving factor throughout my career in grassroots organizing.
Having to go underground to escape Windrip’s intelligence network, Doremus Jessup briefly finds himself as part of a loose coalition of freedom fighters composed of Young Republicans and The Young Communist League. Outwardly far-fetched and certainly a source for situational comedy, this coalition, nevertheless, had its own logic. Lewis understood that both groups, theoretically,were inherently antifascist, i.e., ideologically incapable of cooperating with any government/monopoly capitalist collusion. Hence, ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’, and so forth.
Of course, things have changed since Lewis’ time. Today’s GOP Neocons hardly reflect the limited government, non interventionist, and proconstitution values of historical ‘purist’ GOP ideology. Ironically, the Ron Paul Campaign for Liberty, castigated as ‘radicals’ by the present day GOP leadership, is the proper heir to GOP founding principles. As for communists and statist socialists, a maturation of political consciousness and scholarship have revealed them as the manufactured dialectical dance partner of monopoly capitalists in a false paradigm choreographed by a single financial power elite. They are exposed as no real option to fascism. They merely represent another form of tyranny and are alternate stand-in front men serving the same moneyed interests.
Regardless, the idea of alliances based on enlightened self interest remains sound. Further, I truly believe in the power of reason over mindset. Most people still have the capacity for intellectual honesty. Only the most inveterate ideologues and committed operatives are immune against challenges to core beliefs. It is within these alliances that fertile ground exists with the capability to sprout new ideologies. They often serve as crucibles birthing new politics as theory and action collide.
Case in point: the 911 Truth Movement. Comprised of Libertarians, Green Party socialists, and everything in between, Truthers have pressed to reopen a sincere investigation and to expose the government cover up of the events of that day. Here is a group that has folks sitting in the same meeting that wouldn’t normally associate on a political level. Libertarians don’t go to single payer health care rallies. Socialists and progressives don’t attend Tea Parties.
911 Truth is, however, uniquely positioned to lead the way past the phony Left/Right paradigm and focus on The New World Order as the real enemy of freedom and democracy. Truthers understand that neither Democrats or Republicans have a monopoly on engineering false flag events. They understand that both Left and Right are capable of oppression and slavery. They hold the key to unlocking a new paradigm. The elite have imprisoned us in a matrix of false political reality. 911 Truth is the doorway out.
