Paul Craig Roberts on 9/11, Economy, and America at Electric Politics
September 21, 2007
Look On My Works, Ye Mighty, And Despair!
This is the 100th show on Electric
Politics. So it seems appropriate to cover a series of subversive topics
with a genuinely revolutionary soul, Dr.
Paul Craig Roberts. We talk about 9/11, about the emerging American
police state, and about the realities of international economics which, unfortunately,
all too few economists understand. Now, Craig calls himself a pessimist, but
I detect an element of optimism here — certainly a fiery determination
to make change happen. And as far as I’m concerned, he’s a true American hero.
Total runtime of an hour and forty minutes. Enjoy!
Also, on September 9, 2007, George Kenney posted the following entry to his excellent
To the profound consternation of the political establishment, 9/11 skeptics
have not only not gone away but are flourishing. A site that keeps track, worth
noting, is Patriots
Question 9/11, run by the persistent Alan Miller. To date, he’s amassed
the names of about 800 prominent individuals who to varying degrees question
the official story — recent additions include Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn,
a former senior staff member of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment,
Dr. Lynn Margulis, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, J. Marx Ayers,
former member of the National Institute of Sciences Building Safety Council,
and Commander Ralph Kolstad (USN, Ret.), former ‘Top Gun’ trainer. Needless
to say, the mainstream media hasn’t covered any of these defections. If you’re
curious and open-minded, or perhaps even already a 9/11 skeptic, it’s definitely
worth browsing through Patriots
Question 9/11 to see the mix. There may be a few raving nutballs but it
would be grossly unfair to impugn such a distinguished group with a broad brush.
In short, it’s reasonable to suppose that unless and until better answers are
forthcoming 9/11 skepticism will continue to grow louder.
