It’s the 5th anniversary of 9/11/2001. I don’t have anything particularly eloquent to say about it, so I’ll post a link to someone who does.
Please read I Remember Townsend…
It’s a pretty long piece, but worth reading the whole thing. liz_marcs is a real journalist, and she lays out pretty clearly why those who forget history aren’t half as bad as those who would rewrite it as propaganda, such as the ABC Road to 9/11 fear-monger festival. If you choose to spend some hours on ABC’s propaganda piece, you owe it to yourself to read “I Remember Townsend…” as well.
At first it was called “War on Terrorism” and now it’s just “War on Terror”. Well, what I want to know is, how does keeping us in constant fear of something represent a victory over terror?
