Loose Change 911

[Torrent Link] 911 Loose Change
I would never really classify myself as a conspiracy theorist. I remember reading the Operation Majority crap when I was a kid and being totally engulfed in the idea that there was a world of things happening that we, the public, weren’t allowed to see. Secret things like alien presence on earth, global masterminds that controlled the world, governments lying to the public to cover things up, etc., etc.

All but the last one I think I’ve grown weary of. Because, unlike the other two, the last one only relies on one simple thing: greed and power. Ok, two simple things. These two principles have ruled history, and aren’t we supposed to look to our pasts to reveal our future? Why now, in a time of greater self-realization and global conception, do most of us really believe that these two things are not ever present.

This is why, I guess, when I watch something like Loose Change 911, a documentary about the massive conspiracy behind the ‘attacks’ on September 11, 2001, I usually sit back and just shake my head. Basically the documentary (which I’ve provided a BitTorrent link to above) is a rather well done, indepth analysis of the attacks – the stuff we saw/didn’t see on CNN. It’s quite incredible.

Films like this are always going to sit precariously with me, as while watching it I eat it up wide-eyed, open-mouthed and nodding at the appropriate times. Then after, I sort of sit back, reflect and wait for people to debunk it all.

The content is what it is, I say watch it and make up your own mind. And if you do watch it, please come back here and comment on it. I’m curious what everyone thinks.

  1. Hey, man,
    Thanks for the BitTorrent link. I’ve heard about BitTorrent for a long time now, but have never checked it out. I’m in the process of downloading your movie now.

    I have a friend who first introduced me to these conspiracy theories about 911, and I was amazed and somewhat chagrined to find out that he really believed them. Not having yet watched the movie, and not knowing much at all about the theories, I can tell you that I strongly believe the must be bullshit, for one very simple reason — it would be so hard to pull something like this off, that the government would never risk it.

    I’ll comment again after I’ve seen it.

  2. Hey Chris… first, just want to clarify that it’s not “my” movie.. 🙂 It’s a widely available, rather well-known documentary about the 911 discrepancies… but semantics eh? haha.

    I don’t agree with ya on the government not doing something like this. Because if it’s true, even if it’s all true… do you think it will make a difference? Even if 50-60% of the US popuation believed the Bush administration ‘might’ have had some secret things to do with 9-11 that didn’t have the American people’s interests at heart, nothing would happen.

    It was pretty much proven that Bush won the 2000 election with bad votes from Florida. Anywhere else this would have caused a major problem and at least a re-vote, never mind criminal charges … in America, it’s just sort of forgotten.

    The reason. Power. The population is given the illusion of “power” through media, the courts, and the constitution. But really, does it exist? I don’t think so.

    Which is why I pretty much believe that a group of people who have power will generally do whatever is needed to keep power. Bush would not be president now if 9-11 hadn’t happened. All the things that have happened in Afganistan, Iraq, and the things that will come with Iran and possibly North Korea (and maybe Venezuela as well) would not have been possible without the initial support of the American people to keep A) the Republicans, and B) (and this most importantly) Bush in power.

    I don’t think this is so much an issue about Republicans or Democrats… I think it’s about Elites vs. commoners.

    I could go on all day regarding my thought about how far people are willing to go as well as how many people they’re willing to kill to keep their power … but it’s early yet and my brain is still slow to grasp on to the caffeine I’ve just injected into it.

    Basically, what I think this “conspiracy” is about isn’t “would the government do it” as the government is a massive, multi-headed, rather diluted entity. The question is, would the select few who have the most power, and the most to gain do it…
