|9/11 Conspiracy Sticker Vandalism|
|I thought that all the vandals weilding stickers that say "9/11 Was an Inside Job" had disappeared, but as I continue to see new ones popping up here and there, apparently that is not the case.|
I am opposed to all forms of sticker vandalism, but these particular ones strike a nerve where the other ones don't. It's not so much that I'm offended on an emotional level as much as I am on an intellectual one. The premise that the September 11, 2001 attacks were planned and executed by the government of the United States is categorically absurd on several levels.
I know that the people who are doing this are young like me and probably get off at the idea of "sticking it to the Man, " and have an image of themselves as valiant freedom fighters in a war against the "terror state," or whatever the current buzzword is. If any of them are reading this, though, I encourage them to do two things:
a) Search out the numerous websites and articles that debunk the erroneous claims of various 9/11 conspiracy videos (or just watch the videos again with a critical eye; they really are a mess).
b) Put their thinking caps on for a few moments and realize that for the United States government to orchestrate the 9/11 attacks would have been unfeasible (especially for an adminstration as incompetent as the current one), illogical, and unnecessary given the political objectives that conspiracy theorists attribute to them.
Even the leftist hero Noam Chomsky agrees with me.
Thank you for your time.
