|摘要: ||By applying a series of overlapping models it seems possible to account for the crime of 9/11, and its subsequent atrocities, with some degree of certainty. These models, the Propaganda Model, the Pentagon System and Top-Down Democracy, interconnect in ways that enforce the Iron Rule of Oligarchy and its unmitigated mis-use of power. It is, thereby, helpful to consider this complex triad as a Rosetta when decoding the diverse functions of American Foreign Policy and its interaction with the American people. But the synergistic effect of these elements is an imposed Synthetic Hegemony that has powerful historic consequences. In the alternative, its devastating effects on the cultures and peoples of the world are well known.|
