Terrorism Anxiety Disorder: How The Irrational Response To 9/11 Paralyzed America And The West

“The failure to investigate 9/11 has bankrupted America financially and morally, and has allowed us to stand idly by while our liberty has been destroyed.” – Washington’s Blog, “The Failure to Investigate 9/11 Has Bankrupted America.”
“Freedom from fear” could be said to sum up the whole philosophy of human rights.” - Dag Hammarskjöld, a Swedish diplomat, the second United Nations Secretary-General, and a Nobel Peace Prize recipient.
“Terror closes the ears of the mind.” – Roman historian and statesman Sallust.
Can an entire culture, country, and civilization go mad? The answer is hell yes.
The madness of Israel and Western civilization in the 21st century is a fact.
The CIA/Mossad-orchestrated 9/11 false flag events and the illegal wars against the innocent countries of Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Iran are proof that USrael is not a rational state actor in international relations. USrael’s Middle East policy is driven by paranoid delusions, exaggerated threats, fallacies, and illogical goals.
But this article is not about the intellectual, political, and moral failures of government leaders in Israel and the United States. It is about the mass brain disease called, “Terrorism Anxiety Disorder.”
II. What is Terrorism Anxiety Disorder?
Terrorism Anxiety Disorder is the fear of being killed by non-existent terrorists. It plagues populations that live under state terror regimes, like those in the Untied States, England, and Israel. These totalitarian regimes make up the fear of terrorism to justify massive war budgets, maintain absolute control over the people, and shape the direction of society.
The fear of terrorism is an irrational fear because the greatest threat to the individual’s security, liberty, and livelihood does not come from terrorism, but from an out of control governing class.
Most experts agree that the danger posed by global Jihadist terrorism to the West was manufactured for cynical political, financial, and imperial motives. A report produced in England this year concluded that terrorist strikes has collectively caused the deaths of less people than bee stings. Steve Watson wrote about the report’s major findings in late June in an article called, “Report: More People Killed By Bees, Drowning In Bath Than From Terrorism.” An excerpt:
An independent review of terrorism legislation in the UK notes that government rhetoric regarding terrorism is “exaggerated for political or commercial purposes” and that many more people are killed each year by bee stings.
The report by barrister David Anderson QC, highlights the fact that the average number of annual deaths as a result of terrorism or at the hands of terrorists in the UK this century is just five.
“During the 21st century, terrorism has been an insignificant cause of mortality in the United Kingdom.” Anderson writes.
The public’s overreaction to the threat of terrorism can be attributed to many causes, such as the power of the mass media to shape public beliefs, repetitive political rhetoric by government leaders, the influence of a mythic narrative over the public mind that is derived from mass public rituals like 9/11 and 7/7, and the psychological potency of the fear of death.
III. Symptoms of Terrorism Anxiety Disorder
The government symptoms of this politically induced psychological disorder are obvious. They include 1) increasing the budget and size of the security and intelligence services 2) invading innocent countries that pose no threat to the safety of one’s country; 3) persecuting, blackmailing, and killing innocent people, mostly minorities; 4) and alienating the majority of society by defending the dogmas of the state against common sense, scientific truths, and factual reality.
The public and societal symptoms of Terrorism Anxiety Disorder are just as obvious but more dangerous to the mental health and collective sanity of a culture, country, and civilization.
These symptoms are, 1) mindless obedience to voices of authority; 2) the withdrawal from public life and civic debate due to the fear of breaking established taboos or being accused of supporting terrorists; 3) giving up your sacred and natural rights for the illusion of security, and 4) developing an attachment to the state that is beyond reason.
American society and Western civilization was paralyzed because of the irrational collective response to the false flag September 11 events.
Almost eleven years later, the world economy is on the verge of collapse, and Washington’s answer to the crisis is starting World War III in the Middle East. This type of thinking is a reflection of government failure, moral death, and civilizational paralysis.
Historically, the death of free thought preceded the death of a civilization. If the attack on free thought is not resisted and defeated then a culture, country, and civilization die. The 9/11 Lie represented the war on free thought in America and the West.
America, Western civilization, and the Western intellectual tradition need to be defended and supported now more than ever. Such support means ending the 9/11 myth and defeating Terrorism Anxiety Disorder.
IV. Defeating Terrorism Anxiety Disorder
Getting over fears is a huge task. We all have different fears, and different reactions to them. Many of us go into ourselves, withdraw from the world, and pick up some pretty bad habits that jeopardize our individual growth.
When we allow ourselves to become paralyzed by our fears we sink inward and fall apart. It is no different for a society and a culture.
Defeating Terrorism Anxiety Disorder is a difficult process and requires a tremendous amount of personal and collective effort. The process is first and foremost an intellectual one, and involves a radical re-investigation of the course of modern history, from the establishment of the private Federal Reserve cartel in 1913 to the creation of the CIA, the assassination of JFK, and the staging of the 9/11 events.
Too many people mistakenly think that the truth about symbolic events like 9/11 and 7/7 has already been settled and accuse investigators and truth-tellers of being “conspiracy theorists.” This is an easy and pathetic way of suppressing uneasy doubts and questions.
Legitimate doubts and questions will not go away simply because the politically-motivated term of “conspiracy theory” is used to define them. History will prove that “conspiracy theorists” were on the mark about 9/11, JFK, and other transformative events in U.S. political history.
Instead of ridicule and contempt, conspiracy theorists deserve an apology for their efforts to shine a light on necessary truths and raise the collective consciousness of mankind.
