What Has Gone Wrong In America Since 09/11?

America has changed radically since September 11, 2001. Anyone who was born early enough to remember that day should easily be able to tell the differences, but many young people don’t realize the scary things that have happened in America since then. And, sadly, too many people who remember that day are clueless about what is really happening to our country.

In case you think that I’m just one crazy nutcase who thinks this, realize that many Americans agree with me, and John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute recently wrote and article detailing the changes that he is particularly unhappy about. Whitehead writes,

Life in a post-9/11 America increasingly feels like an endless free fall down a rabbit hole into a terrifying, dystopian alternative reality in which the citizenry has no rights, the government is no friend to freedom, and everything we ever knew and loved about the values and principles that once made this country great has been turned on its head.

We’ve walked a strange and harrowing road since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties.

We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade the citizenry to march in lockstep with a police state.

He continues,

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse.

The citizenry’s unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has resulted in a society where the nation is being locked down into a militarized, mechanized, hypersensitive, legalistic, self-righteous, goose-stepping antithesis of every principle upon which this nation was founded.

And the sad part is that Whitehead is right. This is exactly what is happening and a huge portion of our populace, blindly following what a mainstream media feeds them, supports this descent into a dystopian nightmare.

Fortunately, though, Whitehead does have some suggestions for how to improve the situation:

  1. Get educated.
  2. Get involved.
  3. Get organized (with other people).
  4. Be creative.
  5. Use the media (that’s what we are doing here).
  6. Start brushfires for freedom.
  7. Take action.
  8. Be forward-looking.
  9. Develop fortitude.
  10. Be selfless and sacrificial.
  11. Remain optimistic and keep hope alive.

Living in such bleak times can take away your sense of hope and will to fight, but there is hope if you have eyes to see. And all is not lost. If the Soviet empire fell because of their people sought independence, then there is hope that our country can return to the ideals of freedom, too.

  • What has gone wrong is that the Communist/Democrat party pushed thru a Muslim America hating FRAUD that began a Saul Alinsky dismantling of our country and Hillary was to finish his job.This sent the so called Democrats into a frenzy and the dumbing down of the younger generations are now/soon the voters.Islam is facilitated by Democrats so wake up folks

  • You have to go way back to the 60’s when the DemocRATS started putting crazy leftist judges in all over the country and they started indoctrinating socialism in universities. It would be Ok if they gave all alternatives and let the students make up their minds. But the left radicals do not like our system of government they want the government to be the power over everyone. They really like communism with strong dictators but to get there they have to go through socialism because they know it fails and then a Hitler is instituted. The DemocRAT Party wants POWER that is their ultimate goal. They are doing that with open borders to get low information voters in so they can run their lives. They are not for the citizens of this country unless you cow cow with them. The DemocRATS cannot win a fair election they are BK on ideas except for socialism. They are clueless on what is best for the country.

  • When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time
    a comment is added I get four emails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  • You really make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that
    I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  • Hi there, I think your site might be having web browser compatibility problems.
    When I look at your site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some
    overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Besides that, excellent site!

  • Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to determine if its a problem
    on my end or if it’s the blog. Any responses would
    be greatly appreciated.

  • An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There’s no doubt that that you need to write more about this subject,
    it may not be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t talk about such topics.
    To the next! Best wishes!!

  • Great work! That is the type of information that are supposed to be
    shared across the web. Disgrace on the search engines for no longer positioning this publish higher!
    Come on over and seek advice from my website . Thanks =)
