Paul Craig Roberts on 9/11, Economy, and America at Electric Politics


Electric Politics: Rewiring the American Regime

September 21, 2007
Look On My Works, Ye Mighty, And Despair!

This is the 100th show on Electric Politics. So it seems appropriate to cover a series of subversive topics with a genuinely revolutionary soul, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts. We talk about 9/11, about the emerging American police state, and about the realities of international economics which, unfortunately, all too few economists understand. Now, Craig calls himself a pessimist, but I detect an element of optimism here — certainly a fiery determination to make change happen. And as far as I’m concerned, he’s a true American hero.

Total runtime of an hour and forty minutes. Enjoy! Download

Remembering 9/11

To the profound consternation of the political establishment, 9/11 skeptics have not only not gone away but are flourishing. A site that keeps track, worth noting, is Patriots Question 9/11, run by the persistent Alan Miller. To date, he’s amassed the names of about 800 prominent individuals who to varying degrees question the official story — recent additions include Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn, a former senior staff member of the Congressional Office of Technology Assessment, Dr. Lynn Margulis, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, J. Marx Ayers, former member of the National Institute of Sciences Building Safety Council, and Commander Ralph Kolstad (USN, Ret.), former ‘Top Gun’ trainer. Needless to say, the mainstream media hasn’t covered any of these defections. If you’re curious and open-minded, or perhaps even already a 9/11 skeptic, it’s definitely worth browsing through Patriots Question 9/11 to see the mix. There may be a few raving nutballs but it would be grossly unfair to impugn such a distinguished group with a broad brush. In short, it’s reasonable to suppose that unless and until better answers are forthcoming 9/11 skepticism will continue to grow louder.
