Fascinating interview with renowned author Naomi Wolf, perhaps best known for her early 1990s feminist classic "The Beauty Myth", considered by many to be one of the most important works of the 20th century.
Wolf discusses her new book "The End of America", already on the New York Times bestseller list. The book identifies ten classic steps common to all dictatorships -- including those of Mussolini, Hitler and Stalin. Alarmingly, Wolf makes the case that each of these ten steps is occurring in post 9/11 America today. The book is a call to action for young and concerned Americans and this interview intimately frames this important discussion.
I would prefer that Ms. Wolf come right at out and state the obvious: That 9/11 was not exploited but was designed as Step 1 in the fascist blueprint she describes, "Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy."
She stated in the Guardian, "It is not that global Islamist terrorism is not a severe danger; of course it is."
"Of course it is?" That may be the politically correct thing to say, but it arguably makes her complicit with the Big Lie of 9/11.
Ms. Wolf should rethink this argument. Her statement that "global Islamist terrorism" is a "severe danger" is presumably premised on the official story of 9/11, which is an obviuous lie. So in effect, she is promoting that lie.
Otherwise, she is doing brilliant and courageous work and I thank her for it.
