We, the citizens of Canada, are inherently rich. Inherently rich is so many ways, yet inherently poor in so many others. We have more natural resources than any other nation on earth. That alone, combined with our comparatively small population, makes us the envy of many non-North Americans. Canada has the world’s largest fresh water reserves, endless forests, and enormous deposits of oil, and natural gas. We live in large homes, drive nice cars, and eat whenever we want. Even if we are too tired to cook for ourselves or to go out to a restaurant, we can even – but pressing a few buttons on our phone, and speaking a few short sentences – have someone deliver freshly cooked food right to our door. We are a wealthy nation, and compared to world standards, live in luxury. This wealth is probably the main factor that makes us so rich. Yet to be wealthy and to be rich are two entirely different things. To be rich, is to enjoy our wealth while at the same time remembering, and performing the Canadian obligations we have to the rest of the world. What are these obligations and how are we currently leaving them unfulfilled? These are the questions I tend to answer in this essay.
1 Canada’s obligation to stand up for social justice We Canadians, for the most part, are all well aware of the wealth that we have created for our selves. We also are aware of the fact that we are not only wealthier than 90% of the world’s population, but we also enjoy more civil liberties. We have the freedom to speak out against our government in public. We can pamphleteer our thoughts freely and gather wherever we choose, and for whatever reason we choose. In China - the home of 25% of the world’s population - those who express political thought contrary to the thought of the CCP are jailed. In Turkey, those who speak out against the arrest of innocent people labeled “terrorists” are beaten, and those who publish left wing ideologies can face up to ten years in prison. In other countries, you can be killed for such acts. Not in Canada. Even with our horrible security certificates and tasers, we are much freer than the citizens of most other countries. We are all well aware of this, but do we truly appreciate this? To truly appreciate this fact, is not only to be aware and ‘knowledgeable’ of it. We must notice it, fully understand the implications of it, and to act accordingly. Although one of my college professors constantly told my classmates and I how the Chinese lack the freedoms that we enjoy as protected by our Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, I never really noticed it first hand or gave it a second thought until I went to China for myself. Only after speaking with various lawyers, doctors, engineers, and students who live daily under the communist regime itself and listened to their personal stories of political frustration did I fully realize how lucky we Canadians really are. I was privileged enough to personally hear how they cannot freely live where they want, say what they want, or do what they want. Even if these freedoms were awarded to Chinese public, little difference in their ability to fight for social justice would be made. The poor live in such poverty, that they have no extra energy that can be spent outside of trying to receive enough food to eat and trying to stay warm. The growing middle class - already in the hundreds of millions – that live in the major cites are working 60 hour weeks, and are making just enough money to pay for their mortgages, cars, and their child’s education. Any extra time or money
that they do have will be spent doing what the state controlled media tells them to do: Shop, watch TV, then shop some more. After I saw how they lack the freedoms that we take for granted in our daily lives did I realize why we need to stand up when global justice is not met – Because they can’t. We have the political freedom, time, and understanding required to do so. Some Canadians already understand this, and are acting. One example of Canadians performing the tasks they are obligated to do comes from Melanie Rauol and Sam Price of Vancouver. Melanie and Sam, along with a British, and three American colleagues, stood up for those in Tibet who cannot stand up for themselves. They traveled to Beijing, and on the eve of the one year countdown to the inauguration of the 2008 Olympic games, hung a massive 450 foot banner off of the Great Wall with a revised version of Beijing’s Olympic slogan written across it: One World, One Dream, Free Tibet 2008. Chinese authorities removed the activists after two hours, and briefly jailed them before deporting them back to their countries of origin. Tenzin Dorjee, Deputy Director of Students for a Free Tibet spoke on why Melanie and Sam did what they did: "The Chinese government is exploiting the Olympics to gain acceptance as a world leader. By protesting at the Great Wall, the most recognizable symbol of Chinese nationhood, we're sending a clear message that China's dream of international leadership cannot be realized as long as it continues its brutal occupation of Tibet… The Olympic dream of Tibetans is freedom by August 2008, and we call on the IOC and the global community to help us make this a reality." In 2002, IOC President Jacques Rogge said, "If … human rights are not acted upon [by China] to our satisfaction then we will act.” In response, Dorjee added to his statement, "the Chinese government shows no substantive progress in addressing long-standing human rights concerns.” Since all the activists involved in this action were from foreign countries, especially English speaking G8 countries where basic human rights are for the most part honoured, the Chinese government had to think first about potential global media coverage – something that the CCP and all its tools to control the media within its borders, cannot control. Given the protest Canada, America, and the UK would have made had these activist been jail indefinitely, China had no choice but to release them as soon as possible. Even with their quick release, Canada, America, and the UK found it in their best interest to widely publicize this event to further their self proclaimed titles as “Champions of Human Rights”, and the action of these 6 activists found itself on the front page of newspapers all over the world – except in China. I would like to note here that Canada, America, and the UK would not have protested for sincere concerns of the individuals involved, but only of a concern to remind the world that they are in fact the “Champions of Human Rights”. This title of course, when properly researched, can easily be put into question. Had these protesters been Tibetans themselves, China would have had an easy time suppressing the news, as it would be a purely internal issue. The Free Tibet movement would have received no publicity at all, and the activists would have undoubtedly been disappeared, and killed. So yes, as you can see Canadians have not only the political freedom, time, and understanding that other countries don’t have, but also a unique position in the world that allows them to speak out where others cannot. We really have to let that
sink in. Once we do, we can begin to realize why Canadians needs to be the first to stand up and fight against injustices that affect Canadians and the citizenry of other countries alike - Because we can. Given the brutality that other nations stomp out opposition, we must. This is our obligation to the world - an obligation that must be realized, and never ignored. Given all the inherited wealth that we have, how could we face the rest of the world with our dignity intact if we ignored this obligation? To ignore it, would be global treason.
2 Regaining consciousness of our obligation The world is a dangerous place, but it is even more dangerous for those who do not realize its danger. The real danger does not lie in terrorist sleeper cells, the red menace, or any other fictional creature that the leaders of our nation make believe. It doesn’t even lie in the mercury filled tuna or toxic toothpaste we use. It lies in the information the media tells us itself, and it lies in our choice of what we read, and what we listen to. Realizing this is another prerequisite to fully understanding and later fulfilling our global obligations. The US military in the 19th century had 3 arenas it needed to dominate in order to successfully expand its empire: Air, land, and sea. The 20th century helped America realize a fourth realm was needed for a more full spectrum dominance: Space. Now, with high speed internet and mass communication tools at its citizen’s fingertips, a fifth must be dominated: Information. Information is a tool. A tool used by multinational corporations, governments, and whomever else has deep enough pockets, to control the minds of the people – consumers, citizens, servants - who take it in. (Governments and large corporations find this a favorable business tactic, so the public will buy their products, or elect their candidates.) Mass media tells us what is right and what is wrong. They tell us that Muslim fanatics attacked the twin towers, Coca-cola is refreshing, and that free trade is what is best for everybody. They convince us that ‘every vote counts’, and then tell us who to vote for without us even realizing it. But worst than all of this, they force feed us celebrity stardom and mindless nonsense. Our desire to accept this nonsense as a legitimate way of spending our time is a major factor in making the mass media the elite’s tool of choice. One of the long term effects of taking in this nonsense is the “dumbingdown” process. This is what makes ‘mindless nonsense’ such desirable ammunition for the ruling elite. This process makes us believe what we are told, more than what we actually know to be true or not. It has slowly changed us from being concerned citizens, to a more docile creature. Nowadays, some of us would even come to believe that four plus three equals eight, if it was presented to us in an entertaining way. In addition, we humans seem to have a natural lust for this senseless nonsense. We all at times have an actual desire to turn off our brains. This has contributed to the effectiveness of mindless nonsense, and has further made us lose touch with what it means to be a member of a society – whether that society is in our neighborhood, village, town, country, or planet. This lust has in turn further helped out our leaders with their desire to have us dumb down. As senseless nonsense has been the elite’s ammunition of choice, The TV has been the weapon of choice at which to deliver this ammunition. The TV had so much
potential for being such a great tool for spreading useful information and knowledge, but it is now primarily used for its most useless and destructive purposes. TV has now allowed us to “dumb down” to the level where we were able to watch Kelsey Grammar play the same character for 20 years on TV and never even flinch. The introduction of Reality TV shows has done nothing more than further removed us from actual reality. In addition to all of this, once credible television talk shows have become nothing but outlets for the latest celebrity gossip, and once credible newspapers have become nothing more than tabloids. Video games, fashion, hockey statistics, and the desire for fast cars, cool cell phones and abs of steel are additional distractions. All of these have combined to even further our lost our sense of society so far, that many of us have completely lost touch with our global obligations altogether. Many of us are even indifferent to the problem. Will it be possible for large portions of the Canadian citizenry to break away from this dumbing down process, and regain consciousness of our global obligations? Here in Canada, we have enjoyed the fundamental freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication. This fundamental freedom, as protected by our Charter of Rights and Freedoms, has been however more easily stated than practiced. The editors of mainstream newspapers are the ones who choose what goes in, or stays out of their papers. They have acted as the gatekeepers to our freedom of the press. The editors of Canadian mainstream papers have decided overwhelmingly to avoid the real issues, and help further addict us to celebrity gossip. (Mainstream radio has for the most part acted in a similar fashion.) I can only speculate as to why this is, but now with the rise of the internet, these editors are quickly becoming redundant. Most of us do not have the ability to publish a newspaper ourselves, but we do have the ability to make our own websites, or post our ideas on online forums. The rapid rise of the internet has drastically changed the way we receive and digest information. In only 15 years, it has changed everything to do with communication, and the spread and / or safekeeping of information. Before, most Canadians gathered their information from reading the morning paper, listening to the radio during their commute to work, and watching the evening news on TV. This gave us only three sources for this daily information. Today the internet gives us millions of sources 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Many Canadians now use the internet at home and work alike. We are observing alternative news sources all the time, and we are hearing, and developing alternative opinions. People who are developing these ideas are quickly finding others who share similar ideas, and are further educating themselves through conversation and debate. Although there are a lot of strange ideas that are thrown out on the internet, there is also a lot of truth to be discovered. Truth about how we have been lied to by our government and mainstream media alike. Truth about secret government meetings and Washington lobbyists. Truth about the Federal Reserve and how money systems work. Truth about so many things that were once so easily kept a secret. As more and more people are learning more and more about the truth behind the societies we have built and how they are run, more and more of us are losing interest in the mindless nonsense that once controlled our lives. We are quickly realizing how apathetic and lethargic we have become, and we are changing. With many people, politics are replacing sports as a topic for lunch hour debates. Online documentary viewing is on the rise while Hollywood is taking a hit at the box office. More and more people are forgetting all about Kelsey Grammar.
These are all good signs that many people have already broken away from the dumbing down process. As their numbers grow, their knowledge will grow. With the capturing of this knowledge comes the ability to regain consciousness of our global obligations. As we learn more about the politics of the western world and the oppression of the eastern world, we will realize that we do indeed have an obligation to the world that must be fulfilled. More Melanie Rauol’s and Sam Price’s will in turn be produced. It will take time for a majority of us to make these realizations, but as long we all have access to use the internet freely, this majority will indeed come. When it does come, the question will no longer be ‘if’ we have these global obligations or not, but the question will be solely on ‘how’ to fulfill them. The answer to this question can be summed up in one word: Sacrifice.
3 Why sacrifice is needed to fulfill this obligation We cannot fight successfully and expect to win without serious sacrifice. Unless we show our leaders that we are willing to give up the wealth that we have created in order to secure our freedoms and to insure global justice, we will never receive it. No cookies for simply for answering a question correctly. I know many activists today who do not go to rallies, or decide not to attend local activist meetings due to other ‘obligations’. Family commitments, homework, and meeting deadlines at work are often thought to be good excuses. These are however, exactly that; excuses. Excuses not to do what we are obligated by our world position to do. I often hear advertised by non-profit African relief organizations that only a dollar a day will save a child from starvation. I personally do not donate, because I cannot be assured that my daily dollar will in fact be the definitive difference that saves an individual child’s life. But what if we were given that insurance? What if we could see, hear, and feel the difference? With all the wealth and opportunity we have, how could we say no? A single person’s very strong willingness to sacrifice can also make a huge difference in global justice. What additional sacrifices might be required to make such a change? Some of the sacrifices to truly make a difference on the global stage will not be as simple as donating a dollar a day or by going to the weekend rally in the city square. They will require sacrifices of much larger proportions.
4 How should we make these sacrifices? With our example of Melanie Raul, Sam Price and their four fellow activists, we can see that a large difference can be made by a small group of people who are willing to make a large sacrifice. They put their personal futures at risk with their actions. They had no guarantee that China would have released them as soon as they did. It was quite possible that they could have actually faced long sentences of imprisonment with no prospects of early release - When in Rome. Yet they held true to their beliefs and convictions, and acted accordingly. Regardless of the duration of the sentence they could have possible received, their goal of spreading awareness was achieved. A long prison sentence could have even been said to be desirable, as it
would have brought even more attention to their cause. This was a brave, yet much needed sacrifice. This is however, is only one example of one type of sacrifice. Time, is probably one of the main sacrifices that can be considered mandatory. The mindless nonsense described in Section 2 can take up valuable portions of our daily time. We need to learn to avoid as much of this mindless nonsense as we can, and refocus that time and energy on what is important for global justice. Given we do need some time to relax our bodies and minds each day, but can this not be by done watching an educational documentary just as well as it can be done by watching a Hollywood movie? It is much more desirable and worth while to retain knowledge from real events, than from fascinating, yet fictional plots. We must remember our global obligations, in all that we do. I personally try to dedicate at least 4 hours a day to activism that is directed towards global justice. This might seem a bit high for those who enjoy a busy career or have a large family to care for, but when the effort is made to change our lives accordingly, it can be done. I would recommend that everyone try to spend minimally one hour a day to this cause. Sending e-mails to MP’s, going to local activist meetings, planning large scale events, or simply educating your family and friends are all good examples of appropriate ways to spend this daily time. We must also remember that we cannot become lawyers by taking weekend law classes any more than we can change our destiny by being ‘weekend warriors’. A weekend rally of one thousand people in the park ends on Monday, and so does its cause. A prolonged sit in with the same one thousand people at a strategically important area that lasts as long as it has to in order to achieve its aims cannot be defeated. If a thousand people commit to sacrificing such a large portion of their time – an amount of time that will indeed interrupt their lives in a major way - and learn how to act with an appropriate view on how to actually bring about their goals, the desired change will come. We also need to be willing to part ways with large portions of our money. Profiteering off of industries that we know are part of the problem, make us just as guilty as those who run the corporations, impoverish the third world, and brainwash the public. How can we blame companies like Exxon from freezing billions of dollars of Venezuelan oil wealth when we buy and sell their stock, and fuel our cars at their gas stations? How can we buy any American products at all when we know full well that our purchase only helps the empire’s cause? If we are really against the American Military Industrial Complex and the lack of concern the American government has for global justice, how can we still do business with America itself? Some of our money might be lost be refusing job offers from American firms, or refusing to participate in practices at work here in Canada that directly or indirectly helps out the American cause. We might even need to sacrifice fruitful careers if they force upon us America’s will. But these sacrifices will in fact make a difference. Not only in the monetary loss a firm that loses your business would take, but also in the lives of the individuals effected by your choice to stand up for your convictions. They will see your dedication to your obligations, and admire your steadfastness – even if not publicly expressed. They may even begin to question their own business motives, relations, and consequences themselves. Pride must also be sacrificed. Pride can more often than not, prevent us from seeing clearly. Our pride prevents us from thinking or acting outside the box, and prevents us from honestly and caringly seeing the point of view of others. We need to
act without pride, without worrying about silly things such as ‘face’, and never hold strongly to faulty mindsets due to our fear of ‘losing face’. The words ‘prideful’ and ‘childish’ are inseparable. Another sacrifice that we must be willing to make will be a willingness to give up our sense of security. This will allow us to become free to make measurable nonviolent actions of non-cooperation when strategically economical. The only reason we need a ‘sense of security’ in the first place is because we live in a culture of fear. Fear of what will happen if we lose our job, miss a mortgage payment, or get a flat tire. Any one of these things will not bring an end to the world. If we do not fear these things, are we still not secure? We must also sacrifice the indifference we enjoy to the realities of war, and other global injustices. We must learn to realize that the ‘one dozen Iraqis killed in today’s bomb blast in Baghdad’ are not just statistics, but are human beings who are mothers, fathers, husband, and wives that are loved by their friends and families. This can be done by speaking with war victims themselves, or viewing heavily graphic, and unpleasant photos of war. Each of us should have a photo of a bloodied war victim up in our home alongside the photos of our family, to constantly remind us that this injustice is only possible due to our inactions. We need to imagine what it would be like if one of these children were one of our own. We need to think about how we would then feel. After this, we will see the sense of urgency that lies in preventing more of these innocent victims, and learn to sacrifice accordingly. With a proper understanding of, and a real desire for fulfilling our global obligations, we will find that there are many more ways that we can sacrifice then just by giving up our time, money, pride, sense of security, and indifference. With a proper understanding of our global obligation, we will in time learn to remove anger from our hearts, and hate from our vocabulary. We must take into account all the global (and local) consequences of our daily actions, and account for this in all of our decision making. We must become minimalists, and constantly be aware of over consumption. We must give up belief systems – religious or otherwise – that run contradictory to physical evidence, and much more. Most of all, we need to learn to be a good example to all those that we come into contact with. By making the sacrifices listed here, and by performing our obligations in a loving and compassionate manner, others will follow in our example, and thus our strength in numbers will grow. We really need to be fully aware of the need for compassion in all that we do. The Dali Lama (again, an example from Tibet) constantly stresses how love and compassion are necessary for both political and religious movements alike, and that without them, humanity cannot survive: "I believe all suffering is caused by ignorance. People inflict pain on others in the selfish pursuit of their happiness or satisfaction. Yet true happiness comes from a sense of peace and contentment, which in turn must be achieved through the cultivation of altruism, of love and compassion, and elimination of ignorance, selfishness, and greed." In his quote, the term “True Happiness”, could in fact be replaced by our term “Global Justice”. Sacrifice is mandatory for change. If we are not willing to give up what we have, we will never receive what we want. Our global obligations are why, and our sacrifices are how.
5 The 9/11 Truth Movement as a vehicle for sacrifice and for the fulfillment of our Obligation to the World When we finally come to terms with our global obligations, and understand the importance of sacrifice in fulfilling these obligations, we will begin to have a growing desire to make the sacrifices needed. Now that we have a basic understanding of what sort of sacrifices might be expected of us, we now need to look to see what outlet is available for us to make such sacrifices. I must say that without a doubt that there is currently no other outlet existing on this planet that has more potential for bringing about global justice that the 9/11 Truth Movement. This can be seen by the scope of injustices in can reveal, the clarity of evidence to back it up, and the multi-functional way it can break apart the foundation of the New World Order agenda that is being pushed upon us without us having a say in the matter. Since 9/11 is a global issue – global in the sense that since America enjoys global military dominance over the entire world, and that the effects of 9/11 have been felt by the rest of us, who live in the shadow if its empire – the 9/11 Truth Movement, unlike other movements, has the ability to incorporate a large amount of activists from all around the world. The “Free Tibet’ movement, as morally important and as urgent as it is, does not enjoy the same global reach as the 9/11 Truth Movement since it is primarily a Sino-Tibetan issue. Although the effects of the occupation of Tibet can be heavily felt in other countries such as India, Myanmar, and Nepal, it really has very little impact on the lives of the Swedish, Latin Americans, or us Canadians. Little if anything has changed in our lives since the PLA has entered Tibet, and we have not been personally threatened from its aftermath. This makes recruitment for this movement rather difficult in these non-effected countries, thus limits its possibility for success. In the aftermath of 9/11 we has seen the creation of this “War on (of) Terror, which has not only created 2 traditional wars in the Middle East, but it has additionally threatened every other nation state on earth, and has pushed undesirable anti-terror legislation that takes away civil liberties throughout countries that can be found on every continent. 9/11 has truly changes global politics in an undesirable way, and when we look at the evidence, an unnecessary way. Just scratching the surface of the evidence supporting the claim that 9/11 was an inside job would take up a much larger essay in itself, and is clearly not the purpose of my writings here. I will now find it sufficient to say that this evidence does exist in high quality mass quantities. So much so that 9/11 Truth groups have already spread all throughout North America, and now increasingly so in Europe and Japan. For anyone who has yet to come across convincing evidence, I suggest that there is no need to look further than the research gathered by Dr. David Ray Griffin, and the scientific findings of Dr. Steven E. Jones. (Their material is widely available on the Internet.) After this is done, the implications can then be pondered upon, and the injustices made evident. The most dynamic part of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and the reason why I have donated the last 2 years of my life to its cause, is the multi-functional way it not only brings us to the realization that the foundations of the societies we have built are tremendously unstable and unjust, but it also offers us an incredible amount of diversity in ways to spread knowledge, wake people up to the realities of our flawed societal foundations, and act accordingly. Never before has one event revealed to us the true evil that lies within our governments – primarily the American administration. The questions brought up by
the flaws in the official 9/11 theory bring about even more questions to many aspects of life that we are known to take for granted. In seeing this, we then realize that 9/11 Truth is not about putting a noose around the neck of the guilty parties. It is not about bringing "justice" to the 9/11 families. It is not about stopping the SPP, ending taser use, or banning DU weaponry. It is about deteriorating the societal foundations that make all of these injustices possible. It is about bringing about a world revolution far greater than that of the Industrial Revolution. Now let’s take a look at some of the multi-functional forms of activism we can use break apart this foundation. The 9/11 Truth Movement has brought about a tactic that has been previously unavailable to us. This is what Robin Hordon has coined as “Civil Informationing” or simply “CI”. Although I do not like the word structure he has used in creating this label, the tactics used under its title are wonderfully effective. CI is simply handing out DVDs, conversing with people on the street, and spreading truth and revealing lies via the Internet. (It should be noted for clarity, that the ingenuity of the 9/11 Truth Movement cannot be given full credit for bringing about ‘the handing out of DVDs’ as a new medium of activism, it just so happens that prior to 2001, most people did not have the resources or technology that we have today to mass produce DVDs) Now anyone can collect and spread mass amounts of information faster than ever before. The handing out of DVDs has proven to be a much more efficient tool then pamphleteering, as a DVD can present material in a much more entertaining and persuasive way than any colourful and informative piece of paper ever could. As previously mentioned, once the information regarding 9/11 is pondered upon, more questions reveal themselves and more answers are sought after. When discovered, these answers then bring about even more questions, and so on. This in turn, has allowed the 9/11 Truth Movement to grow faster than any other movement on earth, and it will continue to do so. As with other movements prior to the 9/11 Truth Movement, direct action – when properly used – is not only desirable, but necessary. It is worth stating that Direct Action when poorly managed can have a negative effect on any given movement, but with careful planned and appropriate sacrifices are made in a strictly non-violent way, it is bound to be successful. Since CI is primarily out of the view of the media, a large scale Direct Action is bound to get the attention that CI would not receive. By making some of the sacrifices previously mentioned, and acting in a nonviolent way, direct action can bring about much needed attention to a cause. As mentioned in section 4, if a thousand people commit to sacrificing a large portion of time – an amount of time that will indeed interrupt their lives in a major way - and learn how to act with an appropriate view on how to actually bring about their goals, the desired change will come. Direct Action must be carried out in an area of strategic importance - not just in a park downtown where only squirrels will be temporarily inconvenienced. A good example of this would be a large scale march to Parliament Hill, and then creating a permanent tent city on the grounds. The march would be a memorable and symbolic event. The tent city would be an unavoidable distraction to our Parliament, and would publicly show that we are committed to global justice, and will shy not away from our global obligations any longer. If further pressure is needed, the committed activists could begin a fast to further show their sense of urgency, and force the government into acting as it should – as representatives of its people, and nothing more. Again the government will not act
without its hand being forced by activists willing to sacrifice their time, wealth, and energy for global justice. Both CI and Direct Action, when used in appropriate manners, and with a willingness to sacrifice our time, wealth and energy, will work as corresponding stepping stones in bringing down the foundation of our current oppressive and illegitimate global state, and allow us to begin building a foundation for a new society to live in. But there is of course more that needs to be done. The 9/11 Truth Movement has already produced, but needs to continue to produce educational workshops and conferences, documentary screenings, lectures, letter writing campaigns, develop media strategy, build relationships with other peace organizations, and finally work with - or develop its own - political parties. Once this has been accomplished, and the lid on 9/11 blown, the SPP and NAU can more easily be prevented, torture properly debated, security certificates abolished, tasers subsequently phased out, and so on. Working on any one of these issues before taking on 9/11 is futile. It is like trying to make a boiling pot of water return to room temperature with an ice cube, while ignoring the fact that the stove is still on. With all of its ways to grow and develop, and with the members of the Movement willing to sacrifice all that they can for it’s cause, The 9/11 Truth Movement will indeed achieve its goals - a society based on truth, and knowledge, instead of oppression and greed, and a society that our future generations will be grateful for. 6 Conclusion
The world will be a safer and more enjoyable place for everyone, if we Canadians step up to the plate, fulfill our obligation to the world, and veer not away from sacrifice. I know that this is possible. I personally have given up an education for our current cause of bringing down the American Empire and bringing about a society based on truth and knowledge via the 9/11 Truth Movement. If I had spent the last 2 years in China focused on my studies, I would be graduating this spring with a degree in Mandarin, and would have had an endless amount of opportunity to accumulate my own personal wealth ahead of me. But this would not have given me the enormous amount of satisfaction that I have received thus far, in fighting for a cause that my socially aware Chinese counterparts can only dream they had the freedom and wealth to fight for. Let us not have the world envy us any longer due only to our accumulated wealth. Let’s have them envy us for our social awareness, and our ability, and desire to stand up for truth and justice as well. Let us make this envy exceed their envy of our ability to accumulated wealth. Great people are not - as many of us believe - ordinary people who do extraordinary things, but ordinary people who do things that should be ordinary, but aren’t considered so because they are living under extraordinary circumstances. Our willingness to sacrifice for the fulfillment of our obligation to the world should be recognized as an ordinary thing, but unfortunately we are living under extraordinarily lost, desperate, and senseless circumstances. Let us now write a new chapter for the history books and do everything we can to be as ordinary as we can be. This combined with our already accumulated wealth, will be what in truth make us rich. _Drew Noftle
