The driving force behind so much of Washington City’s policies at home and abroad is to be found in the refrain we have heard since 11 Sept. 2001: that radicalized Islamic terrorists attacked America (and want to destroy it), and so it must act to protect itself and its interests. But is that true? This documentary by Sofia Smallstorm, 9/11 Mysteries: Demolitions, casts great doubt upon it:
So what is going on? Seemingly, a grand project that has different goals on different levels, among them:
Remaking New York City’s skyline to profit some well-connected folks;
The rise of a total police/surveillance state within the American Empire to better control its people (which also includes a profit motive for the corporations providing the now-essential security gear, like airport body scanners);
Redrawing the political map of the Middle East through direct wars or proxy wars for the benefit of transnational banks and corporations;
And the clashing and mixing of religions/civilizations to help usher in the Man of Peace who will heal all the world’s ills, the False Christ, the Antichrist.
One of the main tools used to keep this massive social engineering event ongoing has been the image of the elusive bad guy mastermind(s) who is continually plotting harm for America and the whole the liberal, democratic West. Perhaps we should say ‘conjured image’, following the blueprint drawn up for today’s dystopian world by George Orwell in his novel 1984. In that novel one finds the character of Emmanuel Goldstein, who bears quite a resemblance to Osama bin Laden and the various characters who have taken his place in the reports generated for public consumption by the government and media (thanks to Jay Dyer for pointing this out here, https://jaysanalysis.com/2016/07/22/munich-terror-immanuel-goldstein-strikes-again/):
Emmanuel Goldstein is a character in George Orwell's dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. He is the principal enemy of the state according to the Party, depicted as the head of a mysterious (and possibly fictitious) organization called "The Brotherhood" and as having written the book The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism. He is only seen and heard on telescreen, and may be a fabrication of the Ministry of Truth.
. . .
In the novel, Goldstein is a fictional character rumoured to be a former top member of the Party and an early associate of its leader, "Big Brother", but having broken away early in the movement and started "The Brotherhood". Ostensibly "The Brotherhood" is organized into cells, with each member required to read The Book, supposedly written by Goldstein, The Theory and Practice of Oligarchical Collectivism. Goldstein is always the subject of the "Two Minutes Hate", a daily program beginning at 11:00 a.m. at which an image of Goldstein is shown on the telescreen and subjected to extreme contempt.
The novel raises but leaves unanswered the questions of whether Goldstein or "The Brotherhood" really exist. When asked by protagonist Winston, Inner Party member O'Brien replies as follows:
Winston: Does the Brotherhood exist?
O'Brien: That, Winston, you will never know. If we choose to set you free when we have finished with you, and if you live to be ninety years old, still you will never learn whether the answer to that question is Yes or No. As long as you live it will be an unsolved riddle in your mind.
O'Brien claims that Goldstein's book was written by the Party leadership, including himself, but this statement leaves the questions of Goldstein and the Brotherhood's existence unanswered, and may be an untruth by O'Brien to deceive Winston.
The reader may surmise that a political opposition to Big Brother — namely, Goldstein — was psychologically necessary in order to distract, unite and focus the anger of the people of Oceania. Ostensibly, Goldstein serves as a convenient scapegoat for the totalitarian regime in Nineteen Eighty-Four, and justifies its surveillance and elimination of civil liberties.

In viewing the two minute Hate Ritual performed by the masses toward Goldstein in the film version of 1984, one may see just how close to programmed barbarism many in the [u]nited States have sunk when thinking of their reaction to al Qaeda, Islamic State, Saddam Hussein, Bashar Assad, Vladimir Putin, etc. (that means many Southerners, too, sad to say).
The constructed reality fashioned by the nexus of Hollywood, think tanks, the military, and others is clearly turning Americans into something less than human, and more like the demons. But there is hope; there are still those, from St Anthony the Great of Egypt to St Silouan of Mt Athos, who can help them see the world as it is, and help them live life as it was meant to be lived. It is never too late to make a good beginning, as the Fathers tell us.
