Building 7, 14 Years On

One of the oddest things I find about the 9/11 saga is the relative dearth of attention that even 9/11 Truthers have leant to the full scope of info available about the demise of Building 7.
The government's "official" 9/11 Commission Report concludes that 7 was showered with burning debris from the Twin Towers, causing a series of office fires, which then in turn precipitated the collapse of the building.  That this is completely preposterous is uncontestable.  But there's more.
Larry Silverstein, the owner of the entire World Trade Center complex on September 11, 2001, openly admitted on PBS television to instructing the NYFD to "pull" (demolish) Building 7.  This raises a number of questions, seldom visited by anyone on any side of the 9/11 incident:
1.)  How do the NYFD, on Silverstein's say-so, rig a building for controlled demolition and then move to detonation within a matter of a couple of hours, with no preparation, on 9/11, in the midst of total chaos, with their services also sorely needed elsewhere?
2.)  If indeed Silverstein's admission is valid -- even in part -- why then is no mention made of it at all in the 9/11 Commission Report?  Why were the members of that commission reduced to clutching at such straws in order to explain the building's collapse?  This is a glaring inconsistency that makes zero sense.
3.)  Why do 9/11 Truthers generally attack only the government's "official" whitewash, without even mentioning Silverstein's public (though in part questionable in terms of specifics) admission?  I'm not suggesting anything conspiratorial with respect to this particular shortfall -- but rather a gaping blindspot in the 9/11 Truth movement overall.
Some things to think on, 14 years after that day's resonant tragedy.

Identifying Dissenters?

The recent automatic voter registration of all driver's license holders in Oregon by the bureau-rats calling themselves Government, is on track to be most eagerly emulated by their execrable counterparts in Commiefornia:
Note that one must "affirmatively opt-out" in order to avoid being automatically registered.
Currently, if one fails or refuses to register, one remains essentially anonymous.  Someone who is aloof, unconcerned, negligent, etc.
Now, one must be a conscientious, active refusenik in the eyes of the State, in order to avoid voter registration.
Pardon me, but I'm just cynical enough to believe that this move -- now about to envelop the most populous "state" (tax farm) in Amerika -- is about much more than just bolstering government "legitimacy" by pushing people towards participation in the title of this blog entry implies.

A most interesting article from the Scientific American, with its obvious implications for the advancement of Voluntaryism:

Assassination Politics Launches

It appears that someone has finally gone ahead and put this 1990s idea into motion, most likely assessing that the technology is now equal to the task.  We shall see.  And it's been covered by Forbes magazine, no less (as an aside, they have been publishing many anarchy-curious and even anarchy-friendly pieces in recent months):

Vermont Voluntaryists

In October of 2011 I began the Vermont Voluntaryists page on Facebook, with the intention of creating a Vermont-specific internet hub for voluntaryist ideas, activism, communication, and strategies.  To date, there are a mere 77 Likes -- the vast majority of whom, while either voluntaryists or those interested in voluntaryism -- do not reside in the Green Mountains.  While all others are still most certainly welcome to remain on board and continue to join, I am seeking to build a greater body of Vermont residents who are interested in creating a voluntary society.  If that's you, or you know of someone who might fill that criteria, please Like the linked page or forward the URL.  As with this STR blog, I'm seeking to ramp up the level of awareness and interest in my own neck of the woods using a narrower focus as an additional resource.  Thanks.  Now back to drinking raw milk and eating pancakes slathered in maple syrup while carrying concealed with no license in the middle of a field full of cows.  :-)
