When I look at the vehemence with which "conspiracy theories" are shouted down here, the way anyone who questions the idea that there might be more to the 9-11 attacks than official opinion dictates are instantly labeled blind fools, it makes me wonder why?

Is there any real moral difference between killing people by crashing airplanes into buildings and dropping bombs on them? If someone would do the one thing, why not the other? Do you really think it matters that one group is labeled "Us" and the other "Them" to the perpetrators of such acts?

I think some people are afraid of the idea that the rich and powerful may not have our best interests at heart, and may even be actively predatory. It's frightening, yes I know, but with the world situation as desperate as it is, I think it might be time for us to consider it. I think it might be true.

I hope you're not referring to me. I was responding to specific ideas that the world trade centers were blown up by explosives. I have no naivete about the ideas you are putting forth. I do think though, that the complexity in the issues you are discussing deserve more than the lip service that some people give, and have their own version of an us and them mentality, ie: us against our own government. It sounds just like what the tea party thinks. The government is evil, less government, so we can independently be ignorant and ruin the earth with no environmental regulation, etc etc etc. Of course the people with money are powerful, have their own interests, and will do whatever they can, and have their fingers deeply in the pockets of the politicians. And Bush and his cohorts were a huge party to that. Let's take a good look at the republican party for example, shall we?
