Freedom and Liberty gasped their final breath on that day. Yes, after decades of having a boot heel on the throat they finally ceased to exist. There was no funeral service as most people did not notice they were missing. They'd already been replaced by impostors: Safety and Security.
Well, some noticed, and even tried to point out the fact that Liberty and Freedom never had those little Hitler mustaches, but most people weren't listening back then... Too busy looking for AfghanIra(q/n) on a map, or shouting U.S.A! U.S.A! like a bunch of drunken sycophant children.
|Seriously? Patriot Day?! And you still don't think|
this is meant to overwhelm logic with emotions?!
Irony: when the literal meaning and the actual meaning are complete opposites...
-- or --
when the 2 possible meanings of a single word are antonymous with each other...
pa·tri·ot [pey-tree-uht, -ot or, especially Brit., pa-tree-uht]
1.a person who loves, supports, and defends his or her country and its interests with devotion.
2.a person who regards himself or herself as a defender, especially of individual rights, against presumed interference by the federal government.
Remember that pride is actually one of the 7 deadly sins, and it was what caused you to betray yourself in those days which followed... In fact, it continues to force you to betray yourself if you still associate the word 'terrorism' with anything that occurred on that day. Though I suppose maybe Government False Flag operations are a kind of Terrorism, since it did cause fear that was used to push an agenda (actually more than one) that nobody would have agreed to before the events, but I really do associate terrorists as being a rebel group often spanning multiple countries, rather than the standing government (or it's spy agencies) in two countries.
I'd post more links and cite more sources but it's not really difficult to find the many, many sources of information on this topic. Besides, I also believe that we remember more when we work for it. Not to mention that I too am stuck on the giant ungrateful hamster wheel of life, and do not have all the time in the universe to continue to repeat myself. I, also, wouldn't expect to be the sole information centre for such a boatload of horseshit to be unravelled in the first place.
I understand how it got this far by looking around and realizing: we're dumb as a bag of hammers and half as entertaining to watch. But it isn't too late. We can get back to where we should be in no time if we tell two friends, and they tell two friends it eventually becomes a self fed avalanche. Or as the neocons like to say, a kinetic military movement, though I suppose this would be a kinetic antimilitary movement, since war does not prove who's right, only who's left.
