I had dinner with a friend that I have not seen for over a year. He works at a music shop and he and his wife really enjoy playing poker at Atlantic City. During dinner we spoke about a lot of things, including lots of poker talk and some things about what I have been doing.
As usual I feared looking like I was insane. Whenever I am with someone who does not have a clue that life is different than they tell you on TV people like me risk looking crazy.
I told him that I have been doing some public speaking about 9/11. We started talking about 9/11. I told him about PNAC and about the drills taking place on 9/11; you know the ones that were simulating hijackings and planes flying into buildings; you know the ones that were run by PNAC members; you know the same PNAC that mentioned a â€œcatastrophic catalyzing event like a new Pearl Harborâ€ when describing something that would expedite their agenda.
My friend did not say much but he did not seem to doubt my words, especially when I told him that all I was doing was telling him what is on the public record.
His only response to me was a soul searching comment: â€œignorance is bliss.â€
I hate to be the one to bring this bad news to my friends. I risk alienating my lifelong friends this way but I am torn between keeping friends who are living in and supporting a false reality, or continuing my mission of helping people become informed.
Itâ€™s not easy destroying my friendsâ€™ imaginary bliss, but if I donâ€™t do it we will never be able to create a real bliss. Think about it!
