The biggest problem I have with 9/11 being an inside job is that, despite my libertarian hatred of government in general, I've never considered our officials to be craven and evil enough to sacrifice the lives of thousands of civilians in such a horrible event (which is far worse than the fictional "Towering Inferno" scenario of 1974) for whatever objective they had in mind.

That's what I refer to as "decency bias". Most people aren't psychopaths so they can't comprehend how a psychopath thinks, let alone what occurs when they've let an entire swath of them conquer a Republic.

Now, I'm not arguing one way or the other about whether or not 9/11 was an "inside job". But if you wanna know why this country is doomed, it's the decency bias. It facilitates weak thinking and complacency. And democracy has no business in a country like that.
