One of the things our rulers count on is that members of the public have a short attention span which makes them reliant on others to make the connection between past, present, and future events. For example, notice the similarities between the bombing of the Federal Building and the 9/11 attacks.

Both involved bombings and the use of explosives.

In the case of 9/11, among the explosives used were highly sophisticated materials produced by the US military and contractors working for the Department of Defense. Unconventional military grade explosives were probably also used in the Oklahoma City bombing.

Both involved identification of the event with a single individual who became the face of the enemy. In the case of Oklahoma, it was white working class males. In the case of 9/11, it was Muslims.

Both evidenced government complicity not only in the event but in the cover up.

Both involved early identification of the supposed perpetrators even though it usually takes government agencies months or even years to find the perpetrators of ordinary murders.

Both events led to no independent investigation of what actually happened.

Both events led to the immediate removal of the rubble with no independent forensic investigation. In the case of 9/11, the WTC rubble was shipped off to China to be desposed of.

Both events led to the further limitations of civil liberties in America and demonization of those who opposed the growth of government power.

Both events and their interpretation were only made possible because of the media’s complicity in telling and selling the government’s version of events.
