    Angry 9-11 didn't change the world

    I disagree with the claim the 9-11 changed the world. There was violence, hatred and killing before 9-11, and there still is violence, hatred and killing after 9-11. What bothers me the most about this "9-11 has changed the world" claim is that in the minds of some, it justifies putting the U.S. under authoritarian rule. I know the U.S. is a long way from that, but there are those who say another 9-11-sized attack could make that happen. But more to the point, I prefer to live in freedom and risk being hit by a terrorist attack than live under authoritarian rule where there's (supposedly) a greatly-reduced risk of terrorist attack -- especially since I believe authoritarian rule IS a form of terrorism.

    Economically I liked Manhattan more before the attack...

    (Okay, economically I liked the whole US more before the Bush era. That's when all the trouble really started if you ask me...)

    It wasn't the event itself that changed everything. It was the fear-mongering and the mass hysteria that followed.

    9/11 woke up some people who weren't preconditioned by ideological influence to pretend nothing happened or that it was all our fault in the first place. Reality itself can be scary, and often those who have been shielded from reality will hate the messenger rather than heed the message.

    I know for one thing is that it changed the lives of Muslims forever... I'm terrified of having my children grow up in environment where "Islam" is a dirty word, and if my daughter chooses to wear hijab, I'll have to worry in my heart if she'll become a target of controversy, hate or worse. I spend a lot of time wishing that 9-11 didn't have to happen, that innocent people didn't have to lose their lives and that innocent Muslims didn't have to suffer the consequences.
