Exactly my thoughts, dear Grav.grav wrote: In some weird way, I see 9/11 as the greatest gift ever, regardless of the pain and trauma it has caused, it was a spark that ignited a level of critical thinking on a somewhat mass scale that I don't believe humanity has experienced for thousands of years. Perhaps we all may have wandered aimlessly into some awful future pitfall, if an event like 9/11 hadn't awakened our senses.
When discussing with friends - and for quite some time now - I have been saying just that: 9/11 was the greatest gift ever served to the public by the Hoaxer Mafia of this world. In Italy, you'd say: "hanno cagato fuori dalla tazza" which may be literally translated as: "they shat outside of the shit hole". They simply blew it big time with this overly ambitious psyop - and no, I do not espouse the theory (which some people entertain) that they actually wanted to get caught - and therefore intentionally made a sloppy job of it all. As I have oft stated, to believe the folks behind this massive and ongoing sham are somehow supersmart and infallible is just wrong. Now, I am not precisely chanting victory (although I think our efforts have helped 'Joe and Jane Public' make some darn useful headway) since most people are still a long way off understanding just how massive a fiasco 9/11 was; but as you so rightly say, 9/11 "was a spark that ignited a level of critical thinking on a somewhat mass scale that humanity hasn't experienced for thousands of years".
Without that spark, for instance, I don't think I'd ever looked deeper into NASA's (ongoing) mass-deception machinations... So let us all chant:
"Thank you, 9/11, thank you!"
