The Truth Hurts
Joel Hirschhorn writes on the failure that is the 9-11 Troof Movement:
Akin to the definition of insanity, the hallmark of entrenched but marginalized movements is that they continue to pursue exactly the same strategy and tactics that have failed to produce solid results. They indulge themselves with self-delusion, defensive thinking and acting as if the world at large must surely and finally wake up, see the light and embrace the Truth. Years and, potentially, decades go by, but this quixotic status quo remains embedded, as if set in intellectual concrete. There is no brain tumor to blame. Nor any mass hypnosis of true believers to prove. There is just monumental disinterest among the dominant culture, political establishment and the broad public that is far more engaged with other issues, problems and movements.
However, when this was posted over at 9-11 Flogger, the conversation took a predictable turn. Hirschhorn was apparently a Judy Wood devotee, so he must be disinfo. How dare he criticize the Troofers!
