9/11 Turned Into a Rights Grab

9/11 turned into a rights grab. 

There, I said it. Sue me or unsubscribe or whatever. 

But the past 18 years have proven it true. 

It brought us endless wars, fought with your tax dollars and children's lives. 

It brought us excessive eavesdropping and draconian data collection. 

It brought us militarized police with military equipment and an exponential increase in the deployment of SWAT teams. 

I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe. 

“I’ll fucking kill you,” said the cop in Ferguson. 

Go out and shop though. 

Post your Twin Tower images on Instagram. 

Believe that big government mandating a moment of silence for the day is a good idea. 

Mission accomplished. 

We’re Outsiders here, in case you forgot. 

It’s ok for us to say the University of Alaska’s Institute of Northern Engineering concluded this month that “fire did not cause the collapse of WTC 7 on 9/11, contrary to the conclusions of NIST and private engineering firms that studied the collapse.” 

I don’t know if it was an inside job or not. 

What I do know is that we readily traded liberty for safety to the detriment of our freedoms. 

It led to a rapid expansion of government powers and overreach. It led to big tech companies prying into your lives in unprecedented fashion. 

Alexa, show me an ad on my Facebook app on my iPhone based on a conversation I just had. 

Those companies got rich spying on you.

How ‘bout dem FAANG stocks though? 

And now cometh the backlash with antitrust investigations and fines being levied against them. 

Snowden told you. 

Never forget. 

Call it like you see it,
