On the Aftermath of 9-1-1 (Again)
About four years before the the Dope City Free Press began publishing a couple airplanes flew into a couple very tall office towers in the city of New York. Again I have been drawn into writing about that day just as I have been in other years.
Because of the nature of overseas attacks on American targets and the previous attempt on the same buildings it was clear to me America and, in all likelihood, its symbolic New York towers would soon be attacked in some way. The use of someone else's aircraft as the means of destruction was as surprising to me as anybody.
The date of the attack that morning was a dead giveaway it was the same people, more or less, who made the first attempt on the towers: 9-1-1. Few, if any, cultures are as poetic as Arab culture. 9-1-1, motherfuckers.
Fucking history now, isn't it.
15 years later, unfortunately, the cause of the events of that day and many since remain the same: extreme inequality and hate. Extreme inequality and hate that has both spread and worsened at an alarming speed.
Worse consequences are surely on the way. Preventable worse consequences may I add. Inequality and hate are quite unnecessary - dominant but unnecessary.
There is a better way.
