zinn and chomsky, birds of a feather

I’ve always been a fan of historian Howard Zinn and have enjoyed reading his classic opus “A People’s History of the United States” many times.  He and fellow scholar Noam Chomsky have spent literal decades exposing the inner workings of the powerful elite in this country and the mayhem these elite have projected domestically and abroad.  Both deserve a place in the pantheon of leftist scholars, yet I’ve found out the Zinn (like Chomsky), seems to believe that finding those really responsible for the atrocities of 9/11 is of no concern, that people like myself should just “move on”.

They are entirely entitled to their own opinion on the subject, but their blindness to 9/11 truth’s import is disappointing to say the least.  I’ve always imagined these two as representative of Americans who question everything, never taking anything at face value, but it seems even they have their limitations.  My guess at the reasons behind their reluctance to take seriously the questions raised by the 9/11 truth community are few, but I think most of it arises from an obstinate refusal to entertain a narrative that may damage the paradigm they’ve spent their careers pondering.  It seems that in their minds, the elite are more than willing to exert violence to further their aims, but false-flag terrorism is farther than even the ruthless elite dare go (despite evidence to the contrary).

To suggest that the murderers of nearly 3,000 people should be allowed to go free simply because it’s “in the past” is silly.  Witness the long-delayed trials of white supremacists who avoided justice in the sixties only to finally be held accountable.  Is justice not important, Mr. Zinn?  Shouldn’t we seek answers and learn from them so that we may be vigilante against the treacherous pursuit of power at any cost? 

Exposing the real perpetrators behind 9/11 will shine the light on the powerful elite, their shadowy establishments, secret meetings, and their ultimate goals for control of the earth and its people.  It’s boggles my mind why astute men such as Zinn and Chomsky fail to grasp this at all.  Maybe it’s generational…
