Guest: Eric Wilson, senior lecturer of public international law at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia, and editor of the brand-new scholarly book The Dual State: Parapolitics, Carl Schmitt and the National Security Complex, as well as Government of the Shadows: Parapolitics and Criminal Sovereignty (Pluto Press, 2009).
Eric Wilson argues that nazi philospher Carl Schmitt (who spawned neocon guru Leo Strauss) got some things right, and some wrong…but that a serious consideration of his ideas can help us understand why the “liberal” mainstream is so blind to the reality of such phenomena as the deeply questionable events of 9/11, Operation Gladio, the JFK assassination, and so on.
Add Eric Wilson’s books to the growing list of scholarly pro-9/11-truth books published by respected academic presses, alongside those of Peter Dale Scott (University of California Press), Paul Zarembka (Elsevier, Europe’s leading scholarly publisher), Anthony Hall (McGill), Four Arrows (University of California Press), and American Behavioral Scientist. If we add the many dozens of pro-truth articles issued by scholarly publishers, we see that there is a tidal wave of pro-9/11-truth literature washing over the academy. In constrast, there is essentially NO scholarly literature arguing that the 9/11 Commision’s methodology was defensible, or its conclusions correct; and there is essentially no evidence-based scholarly literature even attempting to refute the arguments of the works cited above. Nor has there been any attempt, in the scholarly literature, to refute the arguments of the “Dean of 9/11 Studies,” David Ray Griffin.
I guess that means we’ve won.
So I want my job back.
Or at the very least, someone who will accept $2,000 to spend 90 minutes explaining why I’m wrong.
