There is a virus sweeping the world. It infects opponents of the Bush government, sucks their brains out through their eyes and turns them into gibbering idiots. First cultivated in a laboratory in the US, the strain reached these shores a few months ago. In the past fortnight, it has become an epidemic. Scarcely a day now passes without someone possessed by this sickness, eyes rolling, lips flecked with foam, trying to infect me.Read the rest.
The disease is called Loose Change. It is a film made by three young men that airs most of the standard conspiracy theories about the attacks of September 11 2001. Unlike the other 9/11 conspiracy films, Loose Change is sharp and swift, with a thumping soundtrack, slick graphics and a calm and authoritative voiceover. Its makers claim that it has now been watched by 100 million people.
On the other hand...
Why does jogo despise Michael Lerner? Why does he think that Michael Lerner is contemptible, and a mediocre and banal intellectual who obscures his shallowness with verbosity? Why does he think that followers of Rabbi Lerner (i.e., "the Tikkun Community") are pathetic morons? Why does he think that Michael Lerner is not even a man, let alone a Jew? Why does jogo respect Anna Nicole Smith more than he does Michael Lerner?Basically, Lerner may not have been infected by the virus of 9/11 conspiracy, but he is certainly a carrier. The book he "contributes" to is 9/11 and American Empire: Intellectuals Speak Out. I hate that word "intellectuals". As I said in a previous post, What's so good about "intellectuals"? Or, in other words, why aren't the plebs' voices just as valid? And the arrogance of naming yourself an "intellectual"!
If you want an answer to these questions, look no further than here.
