Joseph Beck Looney like this Zionist guy who admits that 9/11 was a false flag terror attack: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/08/15/zionist-extremist-chamish-admits-bollyn-is-right-zionists-did-911/
Joseph Beck Great article Seamus! Reminds me of my favorite Ludwig von Mises quote: "In the long run even the most despotic governments with all their brutality and cruelty are no match for ideas. Eventually the ideology that has won the support of the majority will prevail and cut the ground from under the tyrant's feet. Then the oppressed many will rise in rebellion and overthrow their masters."
Joseph Beck In a free market, without corporations being merged with the government as they are today (something we call fascism), corporations would have to serve their customers, not their revolving door comrades in the massive state apparatus. Let me guess, Marxist?
Joseph Beck "Oh, and one other thing; lose the BMW and consider investing in a pick-up that has four wheel drive." Great advice! As for myself, I've started up an organic landscaping business to help people in my community deal with the inevitable rise in food prices.
Joseph Beck Haha. Mark, no need to be depressed. There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic, even though it's apparent we have psychopaths in charge of our economy. Keep doing research on Austrians and the Fed. And then tell somebody about it!
Joseph Beck I don't care for state worshiping socialists either, but if we can convince them that their dollar is being destroyed by the Fed, then perhaps we can lead them to NAP and other libertarian/AnCap axioms. We have to wake them up some how. Starting with the Fed is a common ground we can all meet on even if they still hold dear their flawed socialist ideologies. And then once they see the fallacies of planning and paper money, they'll come around to embracing full spectrum freedom. By no means am I saying we should compromise our intellectual and moral high ground for socialist revolution lol.
Joseph Beck Thanks Mark! You're right. The whole banking system has been perverted on purpose to increase the plundering of the many by the few. Here's a simple explanation from Austrian economist Bob Murphy on what the Fed's recent QE-infinity announcement means: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PW9whTQenYM If you're interested in learning more about the Fed and monetary issues that affect all of us, check out the links in the article and maybe pick up RP's End the Fed.
Joseph Beck Right on. It's good to see someone question the questioners based on their own experiences, instead of immediately dismissing 1,700 architects and engineers. How do we explain the nano thermite found in the WTC complex rubble? Or the molten metal that at the foundation of the complex? I would be interested in your take on the documentary I linked.
Joseph Beck Ethan, first..have you watched the testimonies of the architects and engineers in the documentary I linked? Are you really that confident in your ability to 'demolish' the opinions of these professionals? Or are you seeking alternative explanations and rationales to deal with that cognitive dissonance? If you watch that documentary, it will show you NYPD and fire fighters who detail the explosion sounds they heard that day. No construction work had been taking place? Google "Turner Construction 9/11" or review some of Christopher McDaniels comments in this thread. For what reason would we be making this stuff up? I WISH, I WISH, I WISH, the official story was true!
Joseph Beck Thanks Darwin. I knew this was a controversial subject that would receive many boos and hisses, but I merely presented groups of individuals who also question the official story instead of relying on my own thoughts of what happened that day. The article that labels 9/11 truthers as 'idiots' is appalling. Are we going to call those who lost loved ones and seek the truth 'idiots'? I understand PM changed the title for traffic purposed but its still unfortunate. As you said, we may disagree on some issues - that's fine. But something of this magnitude needs to be discussed not just dismissed immediately as many here have done.
Joseph Beck When did I say I was looking for another gov't commission? No offense, but maybe the issue here is 'reading comprehension'. In my article above: "With all the evidence and expert opinions pointing to a controlled demoliton, the collapse of WTC 7 alone merits a new independent investigation. " Are all political science majors convinced that government is the only entity capable of handling society's concerns?
Joseph Beck You are exactly right Gary. Rigging an investigation is hardly beyond their capabilities. Here's 9/11 Commission member and Sen Max Cleland who resigned from the Commission citing a WH cover up of the governments foreknowledge: http://www.democracynow.org/2004/3/23/the_white_house_has_played_cover 6 out of the 10 commission members resigned for similar reasons.
Joseph Beck Check out the Project for A New American Century. In that document, big time neocons call for rebuilding America's defenses..but they admit that their desire for more involvement overseas would be met with hesitation from the public, "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event––like a new Pearl Harbor". That's a good start.
