9. The point about 9/11
is not simply the human cost (which is the equivalent of a medium earthquake disaster, but should not be dismissed by that equivalence, since grief festers in the absence of an explanation, and since the trauma in this case directly hit hundreds of millions of people live via TV).

The point about 9/11 is it is used to define reality. It is a psychological operation, even if you don't believe it was an inside job. It is what the mobsters used to get their way on anything they did not yet have their way on.
