This message should not be construed as "Taking Sides", in the Great Division of the 9-11 Truth Movement, but rather, it is merely a statement about my position on this particular issue, to wit:
It is not clear to me, who is responsible for the portion of the message which appears at the top of this reply, however, that message is laced with nothing but generalizations, and high level abstractions.
It has been commonly held through the ages, that (1) fraud lurks in generalizations, and (2) he who deceives, speaks in general terms, and (3) he who defines and distinguishes well, teaches well.
Difficult projects of spirited people, always seem to mediocre minds, to be "Doomed to Failure", before they are accomplished, hence, "Historians always write about how impossible Revolution is,.....until it happens,......then they write about how inevitable it was."
I strongly disagree that it is a useless endeavor to reach the police with our messages of 9-11 Truth.
We who are involved in the 9-11 Truth Movement, have diligently attempted to combat the enormous resources of the U.S. Main Stream Media Disinformation Machine, and by extension, the Cognitive Dissonance Problem, by vigorously engaging the Public At Large, in discussion of the evidence in support of our position. I see nothing exceedingly more "Silly", or "Inept", about extending that discourse to police officers.
We Truth Warriors must not be so snobbish, and haughty, as to think, that we are so much more highly evolved than police officers, or that the police, once having accessed the information which we have, could never reach the conclusions that we have reached concerning 9-11.
The police are indoctrinated with the same set of prejudices, false ideas, distortions, and the very same linguistic and logical fallacies as the public at large, therefore, strategies must be developed, which will enable us to convey to the police, our messages of Truth.
Tom's mission is certainly courageous. It will surely require enormous energy, and the strenuous work of those few spirited, and dedicated individuals who participate. Most would lack the inner resources to take on such a project, choosing rather, to simply sit back and criticize.
Let us not forget, that the frame of mind of these police, may one day be the determining factor, in how severely peaceful demonstrators are attacked, and/or mistreated by the police.
Let us not forget, that the frame of mind of these police, may one day be the difference between our ability to sustain our existence, and our bodies falling face down, into the bottoms of mass graves.
