Out With The Truth 

Cognitive dissonance can be defined as an irresolvable conflict between what we hold (or wish) to be true and what we know to be true.

Cognitive dissonance can be defined as an irresolvable conflict between what we hold (or wish) to be true and what we know to be true.

There is an old saying that one should never discuss religion or politics. Perhaps this is because these subjects conjure up large amounts of cognitive dissonance.

People hold that their particular brand of religion is true, even knowing it is based on faith. Americans hold that our political system is judicious, while knowing that it is full of corruption.

We hold that our politicians (typically lawyers) are telling us the truth or actually care about us, knowing that most of them don't have an honest bone in their bodies, or give a rat's patuti about the common people.

Some hold that patriotism is never questioning your government's authority, when reality dictates that responsible government requires constant vigilance and demand for accountability by a country's citizens.


Nothing has generated more cognitive dissonance than the events and official explanation of the September 11, 2001 attacks. Many still hold that the official story of 9/11 is factual, even though the freefall collapse of three buildings hit by two planes is scientifically impossible.

While some might hold that government insiders could never perpetuate such a crime to kill their own people, the evidence, if you look, is overwhelming that 9/11 was an inside job.

Science holds the key to understanding. Just as many once held that earth was the center of the universe, science proved that earth is not even the center of the solar system.

Accepting the freefall collapse of the Twin Towers in 11 seconds or less is "absurd" because it requires us to hold that the massive steel support columns offered no more resistance to the falling rubble than air.

Unless Americans can resolve our cognitive dissonance about 9/11, we will be unable to move ahead as a nation. 9/11 is the Big Lie, the New Pearl Harbor, the pretext for two illegal wars, and the psychological manipulation of an entire nation.

9/11's aftermath has left us in a state of collective delusion. We all must share the collective guilt of killing and torturing innocent people in retaliation for the attacks. We have permitted the real perpetrators to go unpunished.

Learning the facts about 9/11 can set us free from the bondage of our corporate masters. Resolving this inner conflict and discovering 9/11 truth, that it was an act of state-sponsored, false-flag terrorism can be a road to personal liberation. Most importantly, it can be America's path to peace.
