Obviously the loss of 3,000 lives is a grave tragedy, but it’s highly debatable whether our collective responses have been good for anyone — systematic dismantling of civil liberties, ineffective security theater, bigotry masquerading as patriotism, domestic terror groups, arbitrary unending wars, civilian deaths and human rights abuses, immense concentration of power and wealth in the MIC, creation and emboldening of even more dedicated and elusive enemies…
We now hardly bat an eye at the 600k Americans who have died needlessly from COVID-19, whereas 9/11 proved to be an anomaly. Foreign terror threats, we now know, are low on the list of things that put Americans at risk. It’s hard to believe our national “immune response” wasn’t more toxic than the original stimulus.
