I Will Catch You When You Fall

God bless. In Pennsylvania and the Pentagon, too.

9//11, World Trade Center, Al Qaeda, Terrorism, War on Terror

This entire blog, from every comment from every reader, to every picture and typo – all of what we together have built is a living monument to 9/11 and its consequences. Proof that we do remember. Specifically, a recollection of 9/11 itself, with a link back to STSOZ 1.0 and Flight 93.

What do you think 9/11 means for us going forward?

    As mentioned to Phillip Pasha on Twitter, am open minded but skeptical that any production in these times could capture the atmosphere and detail as the original. What will be, will be.

    Right wingers can’t decide if anti Wall St. protestors matter or are worthy of foaming at the mouth about – Ah, haters gonna hate

    Gary Bauer – total joke. He’s only pro-life because he actually looks like a fetus.

    @Comment Take heart. It’s actually a pretty thin list. The ragged remnants of AEI’s once proud Garde Impériale. Two PNAC types. Max Boot. Gary Bauer as outlier. If the Daily Show concocted a list, this would be it. More significant perhaps are the names not on it.

    Look at the list of names on that list – still taken seriously by corrupt media even after being wrong about everything. A murderer’s row of pro murder party people.

    Hunter, a sad reminder of our amorphous, macht-based society. With the entire apparat corrupted by radical ideology, including the nominal overseerers, in Weberian terms each bureaucracy can be expected to seek maximization and synchronization with the Ruling Ethos.

    This probably doesn’t belong here, but I couldn’t find another post on the front page right now where it would fit better:

    Comments? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    Agree, it’d be liberating to move beyond the victim stage. This past weekend spoke with some folks in the Mid West who were generally agitated about a potential calamity happening to them.

    There was no rational conversation to be had. They had a *right* to be terrorized and thus part of a national drama.

    I followed the links. And having attended The University in Charlottesville, I have followed Route 29 down to what locals call The Hook That place is so back in time. A trip there in a car would be in a cocoon as you said. But in going forward, I would hope we would give up The Fetish of the Victim and embrace a future that still might be.
