Interview and notes by John Bursill
April 26, 2010
Visibility 9-11 is excited to welcome for the first time long-term activist/organiser, film maker, writer, engineer and psychologist Ken Jenkins. Ken’s qualities of patience, fairness, optimism and clear logical thinking are well displayed in this interview! I consider Ken a cornerstone of this movement pursuing 9/11 Truth, to which he has devoted nearly nine years of his life. Ken’s work is primarily as a film maker. He has produced and directed documentaries for the likes of Richard Gage, David Ray Griffin and Dr Steven Jones, just to name a few. Ken’s skills have been invaluable to the 9-11 movement and given us all valuable tools to help us all take many scientific and academic presentations to the the general public. Ken is a professional videographer and consistently provides these films at a high level of production value and offers them at a tenth of the cost to us to use in our activsm. It is true to say that without the efforts of Ken Jenkins and his right-hand man, hummux, our movement would be less successful! Visibility 9-11 sincerely thanks Ken and hummux for this very important and tedious work.
Ken is also a very popular speaker and generally talks about the psychological barriers to 9/11 Truth. He recently published an excellent article, “The Truth is Not Enough: How to Overcome Emotional Barriers to 9/11 Truth”, which was requested by the magazine editors of Global Outlook for the 13th edition.
In this episode of Visibility 9-11 we discuss what’s reasonable and what works for 9/11 Truth. Some of topics we consider include;
Are we too quick to label people or ideas as influenced, owned or controlled by our opposition?
- The destructive nature of exotic theories and wild claims, including the recent claim of Pilots for 9/11 Truth that flight 11 and 175 obtained “impossible speed” approaching the Twin Towers.
- The question of who did 9/11 in the light of claims recently made by Dr Alan Sabrosky.
- Symbiosis — is it the best way of thinking about the possible perpetrators of the 9/11 Attacks?
- Why can’t we get support from the peace movement and is it important anyway?
Towards the end of the interview we talk about the upcoming events on May 7th and 8th in California, where a new DVD will be produced combing Firefighters and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Richard Gage and Erik Lawyer on one DVD will be possibly the most powerful presentation for activism to date!
Films made and distributed by Ken and his partner, hummux, can be found at www.911TV.org.
