    Do you feel safer now than before 9-11-2001?

    In the workplace?
    At large sporting events?

    No. Until 9/11 I was pretty secure in the thought that attacking Americans on American soil just wouldn't happen now I know better.

    No. I had an unrealistic idea that the US was safe for me. Now, I feel more threatened by outsiders and fellow citizens. Not just terrorist attacks, but financial crimes, robbery, animal attacks, accidents, diseases or even rape. It is not that anything has gone up, I am just more aware and cautious of my surroundings.

    No, 9-11 was just an excuse for implementing more fascism in the U.S.
    Consider that the U.S. government had the multi-thousand  page Heimland (Homeland) Security Act good to go within a week after the event.  The U.S. government planned it in advance.

    Such actions are not new for totalitarian and wannabe totalitarian regimes.  Hitler and the Reichstag fire, for example, helped set up the Nazi regime.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichstag_fire

    The Hegelian doctrine applied by totalitarian governments is to:
    1.  Find or create a problem.
    2.  Depend on the stupid public to cry "save us".
    3.  Implement a "solution" that increases government power, and that leads to a more serious problem occurring.
    4.  Loop back to step 2.

    That is an infinite escalating loop leading to more and more government power and the public/citizens/serfs/subjects increasingly enslaved and impoverished.  Until of course, everything collapses totally.  As it has, over and over, in history.

    At what level are we now in the cycle?

    9-11 was just a staged event planned long ago. It isn't the first time our government staged an event or let it happen, just like Pearl Harbor. I think this time our government was more involved in the actual doing, although I can't be certain.

    It isn't the SUPPOSED terrorist that we should worry about, it's the Elite and their corruption
