The real impact of 9-11

In short 9/11 was a monstrous act committed by some very twisted individuals. But the vast majority of the damage that came from 9/11 to this country is both self-inflicted and ridiculously misdirected. We would have been far better off had we ejected from government, including voiding all pensions and benefits, of everyone who willfully ignored the information presented that could have stopped the attack, and we'd be far safer today were we to shut down the open border and enforce immigration law. Were the formalities that are in that observed 9/11 would not have happened and the underwear bomber never would have gotten on the plane - that leaves simply Reed with his attempted shoe bomb over the last ten years, and he failed in his murderous quest.

Karl Denninger

It was used as a pretext to accelerate the transition of this country into a police state.

Rethinking 9/11 Ten Years On in [Market-Ticker]

We have still not woken up to whom we have become, to the fatal erosion of domestic and international law and the senseless waste of lives, resources and trillions of dollars to wage wars that ultimately we can never win. We do not see that our own faces have become as contorted as the faces of the demented hijackers who seized the three commercial jetliners a decade ago. We do not grasp that Osama bin Laden's twisted vision of a world of indiscriminate violence and terror has triumphed. The attacks turned us into monsters, grotesque ghouls, sadists and killers who drop bombs on village children and waterboard those we kidnap, strip of their rights and hold for years without due process. We acted before we were able to think. And it is the satanic lust of violence that has us locked in its grip.

living through those events, and the aftermath, the worse, was more traumatic than one would think,

for one, those who saw the buildings being built in the mid 70's, now was sunshine and light on streets throughout Wall Street that hadn't see the sun, many times, even when it was overhead, which occurred rarely, due to the skyscrapers all over the place,

and the long shadows cast by the twin towers covered so much territory as to make its own weather patterns in lower Manhattan.

for two, the radio towers that extended almost five stories higher than the roof, broadcast signals for dozens of miles around, stopped, and have never been adequately replaced

for three, the changes to all buildings and entry, exit, visitor lounges and Tenant Board / listings (company directories, etc.) have all changed, and for the worse. You need proper documentation to enter most if not all buildings, and even then, it can't be expired, tarnished or have any outstanding legal issues (warrants, police notices, judicial bulletins or otherwise) or risk being located and captured. That alone may have been one of the best improvements....

of the two local or daily papers, when they published the death counts by circle size on the footprint of the building and for quite a few surrounding blocks around, it was highly disturbing to know that as many people died, quite a few blocks away from the building, even after having escaped, based on falling debris and other issues.

that nightmare didn't end on that day, that week, that month or even within that year,

let's hope we NEVER face another event like tha again....
