Most of the recent big, commonly noticeable and objectionable changes in our
controllable circumstances in America — including many downright atrocities
— have happened since September 11, 2001. And a goodly number of them
have developed as a direct consequence. Although that day still seems,
in many ways, very recent, it appears to have marked not only a beginning of
our current and accumulating woes, but also the end of a long age of relative
bliss, freedom, and a degree of personal opportunity that we haven’t experienced
since.

My supposition, which I’ve voiced here before, is that 9/11 wasn’t
just an “inside job”, but rather was done at the bequest of an international
elite firmly in control of our (government + corporate) establishment, as well
as those in other countries, the main trunk of the giant controlling octopus
being international central banking.

Within a year or two after 9/11/01, at least a small segment of the populace
was beginning to note that a credible (and routine) investigation of the background
and modus operandi of 9/11 still hadn’t been conducted by the criminal
justice system. The lack of initiative in this case seemed puzzling due to nearly
all Americans’ faith at the time in the strength and reliability of the constitutional
machinery of due process. The ensuing insistence by many that such routine procedures
be carried out and criminal accountability be exacted stemmed from a shocked
observation that such was not already completed, as one would have supposed,
nor even yet underway. And thus, the 9/11 Truth movement in its present form
was conceived to compel or urge that tardy process.

But, to repeat — our long train of abuses by the system — and our awareness
thereof has only grown since. And thus, our mission — to foment full
and objective official (or officially-recognized) investigation of the original
crimes and impose accountability therefore, has only gained in importance and,
indeed, urgency over the years. For, a country founded on justice and
fairness cannot survive as such under fairness denied and the machinery of justice
ordered to stand down.

Especially after last year’s completion of the decade mark since the hallowed
and lamented date of the calamity, the discouragement and consequent disengagement
of many from our ranks of active protesters, discussants, and message-carriers,
has become palpable, almost deafening in the silence it has created. Everything
has slowed down. Every month, I still get inquiries from new people intrigued
and energized, and wanting to be part of a movement seeking a definable and
admirable goal — the employment of evidence for the enforcement of justice
in America. But, every month, I receive requests also to remove individuals
from the 9/11 Truth Grassroots Organizers’ mailing list, the unspoken subtext
being that it’s a waste of time. I can’t be bothered with this stuff; I
have too much to do.
And my response has got to be two-fold: 1)
Please persevere, because the stakes have never been higher. 2) “The yoke
is easy and the burden is light
,” because all that is required is to keep
informed and spread the word about what is known as opportunities to do so arise.

And, again, we must look back to and honor our heritage. Did the American
abolition movement against the gross injustice of slavery, which began in earnest
in the early 1830s, stop and give up in the early 1840s? No! It was
just getting nicely started and achieved its triumph through fiery trial another
two decades later. The U.S. “security” agencies founded al-Qaeda about 33 years
ago, and they are still using that deceitful patsy, the scapegoat,
false-terrorist organization to stir up and perpetuate mayhem and cowardly dependence
today. Can our response be to fold our tent and give up after a few short seasons
of protest and opposition? I think not.

In an earlier manifestation of the West’s pathological revulsion against Muslims
and propensity for covetousness of Muslim-owned goods, the myth of Prester John,
a legendary Christian prince and ally, at first lurking somewhere in Asia, was
promulgated throughout Christian Europe as an encouragement to venture forth
to rapine and plunder. And, centuries later, the myth was still urged and this
man of Biblical abilities and longevity was still being assiduously sought,
by then in Africa.

The women’s suffrage movement finally triumphed nationally about 80 years after
its start, surviving countless heartbreaks and reverses. We all hope for a solid
breakthrough on 9/11 tomorrow; but please remember that ten years of
toil and struggle to gain traction is nothing in such things!

So, persevere! Be of stout heart! Our issue is still very much alive
in this country and well beyond (due to our efforts) and the blood
and suffering of millions now calls out for us to continue, to say nothing of
our own living hope for redemption, a return to freedom, and betterment. And
if you don’t like the pace or the way things are being done, don’t wait — make
things happen
! Start or revive a 9/11 Truth group! Write a book or article
or letter! Lead a march! Convince your local Occupy group to back our demand
for a real investigation! Tell a friend! Make a difference! Make the truth
you know matter! Spread the truth and the facts you are perceptive and fortunate
enough to possess!
Don’t stop now!
