Excellent scientific evidence; lacks specific action steps
on October 3, 2012
The shortcoming of this video, which is a MAJOR one, is the near total lack of any description or specifics about what a person can do to actually help bring about a new investigation of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Over and over and over again we hear, from just about every person interviewed in the video, that "There must be a new investigation." Fine. Enough already.
Suppose that there must be. So what? How is the person watching this video supposed to help make that happen? What are they supposed to do? Call their members of Congress, or write them a letter or meet with them? There are dozens of ideas for ways to spread the word and build political pressure for a new investigation and build public awareness but there is just about zero in this 58 minute film describing or showing how to do that. This is a major oversight. It is as if the makers of this video felt they had no obligation to present that information, that the viewers would automatically figure out for themselves the best way(s) to do this and they would find each other, somehow, and would have sufficient motivation to take precious time out of their already full schedules to do it. And that they would not start out as novices but as experienced political activists. It's as if the makers of this video had no clue that there is an enormous gap between scientific facts and evidence and political power and action. There must not have been a project plan for this project - at least not one that was shared within the organization. I can tell you for certain that there was no written project plan shared with the Team Leaders, let alone the entire Team, with an invitation to send comments and suggestions.
43 architects and engineers and physicists are interviewed as well as a few psychologists. How many political activists are interviewed? Answer: zero. How many people familiar with grassroots campaigns were interviewed in this film? Zero.
As long as the 9/11 Truth movement ignores the practical reality involved in changing public opinion it will remain mostly powerless and irrelevant like a book on a shelf. Political change does not come about solely as a result of new or better information. Knowledge is not power. Knowledge plus action is power.
A film that is intended to motivate viewers to take action that will help raise awareness and create political power leading to real change has to motivate the viewers while they are watching. Although the film referred viewers to a website where they could read about what they can do to help bring about a new investigation this is not enough. You can't inform people, send them to a website and expect them to get motivated by a website. That ought to be obvious.
Overall the makers of this video have done a great public service by compiling this scientific information proving the Twin Towers and Building 7 were brought down by controlled demolition but they omitted the whole action part, what a viewer can do to bring about this "new investigation" that the film says is essential. If it were really essential and the film makers believed it were really essential they would have made the film explain and demonstrate some action steps for building political power and creating political change.
9/11 has been covered up by the government and mass media since day 1.
