Revisiting 9/11, Emotional Support for a Shifting Worldview
May 19th 7:00 to 9:00 pm at the Bugbee Senior Center
The events on September 11th, 2001 are almost two decades old, but today, two administrations later, the mysteries of 9/11 are more relevant than ever. A clear understanding of 9/11 can give us essential clues to understanding the current conspiracy among the mainstream media, the Intelligence Agencies, and the executive branch of the government. This presentation and the following discussion will involve short video clips to investigate the group’s personal experience of paradigm shift when confronting the recognition of massive state-sponsored deception. Tea and cookies provided, donations accepted. This presentation is intended as a prequel to the presentation on the Deep State two weeks later.
Perspectives on the Deep State
June 2nd, 7:00 - 9:00 pm at the Bugbee Senior Center
The consistency, despite significant differences in rhetoric, between the foreign policy of the second Bush administration and the Obama Administration, has led some to suspect the existence of a decision-making body that has persevered through this change in administration and has power beyond and over the president. This supposed body has come to be called the “deep state.” Due to the recent work of journalists such as Glenn Greenwald and Chris Hedges, and senior statesmen, such as Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul, the term, "Deep State", has come to the forefront of public discourse. Indeed references to the deep state are now coming out of the oval office for the first time since it was held by John F. Kennedy. Whether or not and in what ways a deep state exists is a matter of crucial importance to those of us wishing to engage in meaningful social action. In this presentation, Patricia Green, Karl Rosengrant and Simon Dennis will offer different deep state theories and observations about the social action strategies they suggest.
