September 11th changed our world.
Scott (@sparki1969) and Bob (@bobbuzzanco) had a spirited discussion on the impact of the events of September 11, 2001. We offered personal recollections, talked about the larger historical context in which it occurred, considered the consequences of the attacks–prolonged Mid-East wars and heightened repression at home, discussed the way the attacks and wars were manipulated for “patriotic” reasons, and talked about how it effects the U.S. today, in the era of Trump.
