Why Did I Write This Book?
I went into “hibernation” three years ago after my last book. I was tired of writing about this subject and needed to rest my way out of writer’s block.
I kept waiting for something new to get my attention. Eventually I realized that what I needed to write about was right in front of me.
Someone asked me what I thought about 9/11. I don’t think they were familiar with my writings. I wanted to brush it off, but a whole group of people were watching, listening closely.
So, I went into my thesis: no planes struck any buildings, there were no hijackings, no passengers. As I started to go into detail about my belief of an empty plane (purportedly Flight 11), I saw a bunch of blank stares from over half the audience.
The debate over 9/11 facts is over.
Most people have signed off on the official theory for reasons other than belief in its truth. Why would anyone do that?
I realized that it was for the same reasons most people don’t speak up against widely held beliefs: the fear of alienation is strong. The truth about our own insecurities and failings is too much to take.
We are stuck with myths like Osama bin Laden the enemy until we are willing to be honest with ourselves. In the case of issues like 9/11, this means that collective prejudices about minority groups like Muslims and Middle Easterners must be addressed before we fall for the same kinds of myths again.
Yes, 9/11 is really OUR fault. Can you handle that?
If you can, read Mythology 9/11: Dead Men Do Tell Tales.
