Insight - The Objectives Of 9/11 And The Covid Response
Confirming the connection and communicating it; because the people know
On 9/11, officially 2,996 people died — the number of words in the body of this article.
As you scroll through, remember their humanity, not just the evil of the perpetrators.
There is no paywall out of respect to the victims of this day. Please share.
The incarceration, the lockdown of citizenry began with the WTC event.
Common objectives explain the foreign resource wars and militarization at home.
Nations are near insolvent — wages, pensions, welfare and health services to be cut.
The population is to be pacified; economy centralized, under techno-feudal overlords.
Without 9/11 the people would never have acquiesced in the Covid response.
Patriot Act, 2001, and Covid PREP Act, 2005, were passed under Bush administration.

On the one hand we sense that more people are waking up to the fact that nefarious actors are manipulating our lives.
Increasingly people from very different walks and backgrounds can see that what is happening. They were told to prepare for a new normal, but what’s happening is not normal in medicine, in schools, in the military, in governments’ cavalier regard for legislatures and civilian rights, and in the peculiar way that the media, once competitive and diverse, now speaks with a single tranquilizing voice.
We feel sure that others cannot, in all seriousness, miss this. We are in a turbulent era yet even as things fall apart, people don’t talk to each other. It is as if they live in different worlds — and thanks to electronic screens and gadgets, some do. We need more talk. Less social distance.
Incredibly, we have reached a time when younger people have no recollection of 9/11, feel they have no investment in those events, and don’t care for a history lesson. For many, events that happened before their time are outside their comprehension, being distant temporally and geographically.
The drive to understand things may stem from an interest in history as it shapes our present, but that further breaks down into those who see history as a soup, murky but perceiving flavours that conform to their identity, and those who like their historical perspectives raw.
It is reflected in people's personality. Some are less informed, some are knowledgeable but guarded, and some are well-formed and comfortable in their nakedness. This means being open to discomfiting ideas, and weighing them without putting a finger on the scales: you have to let your guard down and be disappointed sometimes.
People value consistency, yet increasingly it looks to me like a luxury from those years when things made sense; when people got their due, you trusted the courts and police; honour and duty were their own reward and, although there was corruption in high places and it was more than a few bad apples, the system mostly worked for the good.
Nowadays youth in particular are urged to think in terms of the common good, even as the stench rises from the rot of the polity.
In our time one must ask, “what is good?” I used to think it was some higher virtue but now I know Good can be normality, when things just work as they should.
There are many today who want to think Evil does not exist. My definition should give ample meaning to Evil: in its simplest form it is the opposite of things working as they should. Evil is when we allow order and life to fall apart; when we tolerate or collaborate in destruction.
Evil will have you believe it doesn't exist. That is its way of stopping Good, because for Good to happen you must constantly bear witness.
As we reach the 21st anniversary of the murder of some 3,000 people, including those who responded on the ground, and not just the made-for-television destruction of the World Trade Center buildings, it is our duty to bear witness to those events.
We must refuse to deny or to disavow in public what happened. Each of us matters and what we think matters.
It is understandable that people don't have the same information, or interest in history and politics, and that makes it difficult for people to jump into topics — especially information that the corporate-state media refuses to report, or rules off limits. So if a person happens upon the articles on this site, for example, their head may spin.
Advice for the hurting of head: You should not read one article in isolation but several on different topics for they interweave from different directions.
I can’t think of a perfect metaphor. It is like being asked to repair a watch or a building. Unless you have taken many small steps the task looks like an impossible leap. The ordinary person will cry, “no way!” The watchmaker or builder, however, knows immediately what you are talking about and just nods quietly.
Perspective, past to present
You don’t have to connect everything; not all events are connected and there are loose ends (don’t miss the documentary Loose Change ). Moreover, it is important to learn to live with unknowns and to give them due quarter in your head along with the knowns and partially-knowns.
NPR, in an article last year on explaining 9/11 to a young generation, says we often underestimate what they are capable of handling. Be bold and courageous in meeting the kids where they're at, one teacher says. “Sometimes the edges of our learning happen when we are uncomfortable.”
While NPR sticks to the official version of events that day, it’s refreshing to hear an educator depart from regular script of safe spaces, comfort zones and trigger warnings. 
Perspective is as just as critical to interpreting events as it is to images: the phenomenon that makes nearby objects look bigger and distant ones smaller, or flattens and compresses them. Where we stand is important but so is the focal length of the lens and our angle to the subject.
This is true of events whether they are one-off or part of a longer trajectory such as the slave trade.
The purpose of historical perspective is to sharpen our view of the present; as opposed to history which is the study of the past.
“Historical perspective refers to understanding a subject in light of its earliest phases and subsequent evolution,” says Barbara Lawrence in a paper on the topic.
As an example, studying responses to the Great Depression using documents of the time is historical research. Using what we know about the Depression to assess responses to such an event today is historical perspective. Not only does the topic come alive but it gives us insights into the motives of politicians, banks and corporate owner-investors. 
As a tool to understand the present, historical perspective is underused because of the idea of progress, inculcated from school, that “every day, in every way, it’s getting better and better,” as John Lennon sang.
That we progress from lower to higher states of knowledge and well-being has been deeply ingrained in Western culture since the classical age. (Robert Nisbet, History of the Idea of Progress, 1980.)
This is axiomatic yet it is so fundamentally untrue that one should call it a lie… and yet.
Many national cultures combine the idea of progress with a divine right or mission to dominate other lands or peoples — so it’s not as if the idea of progress is illusory. It is shaping the world in good and bad ways.
Confronting the concept of progress is challenging; its adherents are defiant. Observe, however, that atoms move back and forth, they vibrate, we are electrical beings, and the human body renews itself and adapts. As a society we evolve, but whether that’s progress is a value judgment or a measure of time.
One could take the advice of Noam Chomsky who said of JFK’s murder, does it matter who are the perpetrators so long as we know it happened. I don’t agree with him but, as a rule for adapting one’s life, it works.
Doubt is good
Relying on the word of authority figures is no longer a guide to the truth. We need to see for ourselves and attend to the sheer scale of events. We must be aware when the narrative from the media does not match what we are seeing. That contradiction between the messaging and reality should rightly sow doubt.

We all know people who will never put two and two together. Stockholm Syndrome describes a situation in which a hostage falls in love with their captor. Sadly that’s been evident from the behaviour of many during Covid when they were told the symptoms of seasonal flu represented an existential threat to humanity.
Even when the grocery runs out of food, electricity is too expensive to heat the home and they can’t afford fuel to drive the car; even then some people will look to the government for a fix – not recognizing that the same officials caused the problem.
People must come to conclusions themselves. Maybe this 9/11 anniversary will be different if people realize that governments wage war, that sometimes they see an enemy at home, that democide is a thing... that 9/11 was part of the project.
War at home and abroad
Citizens have found themselves treated as expendable by governments before. The most prominent examples are the famines caused by the Bolsheviks in Ukraine and Russia in the 1920s and ’30s, German race laws of the ’30s and the famines in China resulting from the Great Leap Forward of the 1950s. All had economic, demographic and sometimes eugenic elements.
Douglas Valentine, the author who described the counter-intelligence techniques used by the U.S. in Vietnam, writes that the means by which we wage war abroad shall eventually come home.
Former head of the British Army Gen. Sir Nick Carter described how war is now hybrid, fought on the home front as well as the foreign field, and the enemy is everywhere.
It is more than a military doctrine; it’s a strategic necessity for governments who see themselves at war over the size and cost of populations, demands to reduce the burden of food and fuel on the environment, and the need for mineral resources and electricity to drive the Smart Cities program.
These projects explain the foreign resource wars and the regimenting of the domestic citizenry — and they come together in the response to 9/11 and Covid, the lockdowns that disrupted regional banks and small business, the energy and food policies that have aggravated shortages, proposals to collapse the old monetary system and build back better with a new one — and the resulting loss of constitutional rights, impoverishment and excess mortality.

Who is driving this? The bureaucrats and corporate executives in many parts of the world have been co-opted into projects fronted by the United Nations but pioneered by private foundations. The World Economic Forum brought many of the biggest corporations on board when it partnered with the UN to push The Great Reset and Agenda 21, representing the timeline for Sustainable Development Goals.
Many of these goals have been decades in the making. The Report of the Committee on Population Growth and the American Future, by Frederick Osborn and Rockefeller Population Council, published in 1973, previews many of the crises that we are seeing now: ending the consumption of livestock, its replacement by vegetables and synthetic meat, putting a price on everything from water to air, and restricting the freedom of movement, to fish, swim or camp where we like. 
It foresaw food shortages, the need to ration everything, restrictions on where we can travel or live, so that “The population of 2020 may look back with envy on what, from their vantage point, appears to be our relatively unfettered way of life.”
The key to control was pricing. If they could find a pretext to put a value on everything, that would ease the bureaucratic task of controlling the people. They’ve since settled on carbon as the metric for pricing and rationing, which will work by linking a digital voucher system to your behaviours — or central bank digital currency linked to your social credit score.
As Rockefeller adviser Henry Kissinger said, “He who controls the food supply, controls the people.”

Big change needs big events
No president wants to be the one to tell the people that Americans no longer get a superior lifestyle, or that the France, England or Italy known to generations of one’s family is no more. That governments are effectively insolvent and that wages, pensions, welfare and health services must be cut.
The signs are there. We’ll come to them in a moment. Big change needs big events. You can’t just tell people the cupboard is empty. You have to keep food on the table for as long as possible — until one day you serve up a pretext to explain why it’s not.
It has grown increasingly obvious since 9/11 that it is a strategy because the official prescription is always the same. Just as with Covid, the War on Terror was a pretext to regiment the people with ludicrous demands to take off shoes and belts and stand in line to be searched like prisoners.
Then they incarcerated people at home, requiring special permission to leave — due to the newly-invented concept of asymptomatic spreading so that for the first time we quarantined the healthy. And when you were let out you had to stay six feet apart so, effectively, “no talking!”
Looking back to the response after 9/11, this is one and the same policy. The ratchet has simply been tightened.
The Patriot Act of October 2001 had been written in advance, in part by then senator Joe Biden, hijacking constitutional rights, particularly the Fourth Amendment that protects the privacy of citizens, restrains government intrusion and prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.
In 2005 the same George W Bush administration passed the PREP Act, which gave vaccine manufacturers immunity against civil litigation. The act sat, barely used, on the lawyers’ shelves for 15 years until Covid came along.
Lockdown is prison jargon; the police increasingly look like soldiers; the media speaks with one voice like a public information service in wartime; social media and big tech operate as an branch of the government or even the military.
What to look for
You don’t have to be a scientist, an economist or an accountant to work out what’s happening. After decades of telling us to tighten our belts, governments are throwing money around like confetti.
Anyone who watches the household bills — and that’s most of us nowadays — knows that you cannot splash money unless you’ve got an unlimited supply or you’re completing your Bucket List and are about to check out. Yet that’s how Western governments are behaving.
That should tell you that money has lost, or is about to lose, its value and that means your own money will go down with it.
Another way to recognize this reckless money spending is that it’s a Band-Aid. It is covering something, because the more cash they spend, the more your living standards are falling. Strange, isn’t it?
The U.S. government spent at least $5.2 trillion on “stimulating” the economy and what have we got for it? Don’t say “it would have been worse without it.” That’s the same argument used for the vaccine. The bill always falls due.
A financial crunch occured in summer of 2019 that threatened another market meltdown like 1929, 1987, 2000 and 2008. The plan to create money and hand it by the trillion direct to corporations was drawn up by BlackRock, which manages assets for the richest owner-investors. It was presented to the world’s central bankers when they gathered at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in August 2019, just before Event Covid, and was promptly implemented. The banks got sick before Covid. Then they infected us.
But behind these periodic market bubbles and crashes, which are also called pump and dump events, there is always one consistent theme: the battle to control resources. Money, after all, is paper. Lasting value lies in energy, food and minerals that people need to exist.
The World Trade Center attacks were used as a pretext for plans to attack “seven countries in five years” in the words of Gen Wesley Clark: Iraq, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Lebanon and Iran. Three of those were invaded, the others have seen intermittent attacks — even Lebanon has come under financial assault and suspicious attacks on its economic infrastructure. A fire broke out at its port on the anniversary of the deadly blast of August 2020.
Resources were taken, like gold reserves, and giant energy companies are stealing oil from occupied lands. Weapons makers reap billions from yet more wars; while the West even controlled the narcotics business (until opium was supplassed by fentanyl).
Clearly, none of this is due to 9/11 which was simply a pretext. The Covid response is likewise about money: big pharma got paid twice, for the R&D and for the injectables; the media is financed by pharma profits and government subsidies; schools got billions in return for vaccinating and indoctrinating children; and the medical industry billions for… not saving people.
Covid saw the biggest wealth transfer in history, mostly redistributed to the rich. The food and energy supply is under huge stress, the economy is at risk of the biggest crash since the Great Depression and we’re possibly more vulnerable — in Western countries 80 per cent of the population lives in cities (compared to an average 55 per cent worldwide).
There are other projects: the miscegenation of peoples, the toppling of Europe — these are not exaggerations as presented in the press: they are the words of UN representatives and portend the West’s future.
People will get angry. Governments got prepared... created a few fake enemies from George Orwell’s playbook and readied the wartime surveillance and propaganda machine.
Without 9/11, the Covid response could never have been imposed.
