As we enter September, I recall back in 2001 on the morning of September 11, when I awoke from what I feel was a precognitive dream to find that two passenger jets had flown into the World Trade towers and two were out of communication with air traffic control. My life, your life, and indeed, everyone on this planet’s life has not been the same since that terrible day. Some people’s lives prospered under the “new paradigm” of global and almost total police state control and with two military invasions and occupations by the US on two countries that did not attack us on 9/11/01.
Most people, though, have felt the pain of war, environmental decay and economic depravity that have been imposed by the U.S. Empire. This week on the Soapbox my guest is Bob McIlvaine whose son Bobby perished in the lobby of Tower Two on that morning (in an explosion, hmmm) and Bob gives a passionate, well-informed and intense evaluation of that day – and a touching remembrance of his son.
