As we reflect on the lead up and observance of the 10th anniversary of 9-11-01, I thought about how there are still people who believe in some kind of conspiracy about the event. And even less radical people believe there is still a cover-up of details. Why do we even think there are conspiracies and cover-ups when major national events happen?
Is it just that we can’t trust anyone in authority anymore?
When did we move from believing those in power (be it political or community) were right and looking out for our common good to thinking they are all suspicious and out only for their own gain?
