Listen to psychologists break down peoples feelings and responses, to hearing and seeing information that conflicts with their world view. 9/11 Challenges the beliefs that our government protects us and keeps us safe and that America is good. When beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to the emotion of fear our psychological defenses kick in and protect us from these emotions. Denial is probably the most primitive psychological defense and is the most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged. It's easier to deny when we hear or see evidence that challenges our most fundamental beliefs of the world. Denial protects people from the being ostracised, confused and having our lives inconvenienced because people would have to change their lives. Being afraid of psychological deterioration, afraid that they wont be able to handle the feelings that come. Afraid of being shunned, feeling helpless and alienated. This audio has solutions and ends with a classic Bill Hick sketch. This was taken from Peace Revolution episode 039: 9-11 Backdraft / Examining the Evidence Ten Years Later. http://peacerevolution.podomatic.com/player/web/2011-09-11T17_07_08-07_00
