Peter Fotis Kapnistos: Problem - Neo-conservative White House policy bosses suspected that something like "a new Pearl Harbor" might happen. It gave them the reason they needed to launch the "Project for a New American Century" (PNAC). Irving Kristol, the godfather of the neo-conservative movement was a disciple of Leon Trotsky. So were many other neo-cons, like Stephen Schwartz and Paul Wolfowitz. Trotsky's theory of "Permanent Revolution" moves from a capitalist market that quickly corrupts, collapses, and is replaced with a socialist global economy.
NASDAQ-traded companies, mostly in technology, responded to the challenge of "a new Pearl Harbor" by exploring advanced surveillance and security technologies.
Al Qaeda reacted to the stock market surge by launching a devastating attack before new surveillance and security technologies could be implemented.
Encroaching surveillance technology, to read every e-mail and tap every phone, became a part of the war on terrorism. Concerns were voiced that constitutional rights would continue to vanish as intrusive technologies increase.
International financial markets tumbled and national economies slipped into recession. The crisis rapidly developed and spread into a global economic meltdown.
While some neo-conservative bosses were still followers of Trotsky, they hoped to one day be known as the demolishers of capitalism.
The UNI Global Union stated: There can be no going back to the ways of unfettered capitalism that have caused the worst financial and economic crisis in decades.
The chairman of NASDAQ during the September 11 attacks was Bernard Lawrence "Bernie" Madoff, who confessed to masterminding one of the world's biggest financial frauds.
The Bromance of Bernie and Bill
Bernie and Bill climbed Capitol Hill,
To fetch a Wall Street slaughter.
They put blind Justice on the pill,
And ran off with her daughter.
Ol' Bill was just a lazy Goth,
And all the while did holler.
Bernie stole a poncho cloth,
Known as the US dollar.
To overthrow the government,
Was not their first intention.
Conspiracy they never meant,
Until Bill's new invention.
When NASDAQ married Texas Oil,
And mingled with the Saudi,
They bet on Arthur Conan Doyle,
And hatched jihadi daddy.
A psychiatric incident,
Sent by a distant god?
Our privacy is up for rent,
Superstitious - or just odd?
Implant us with new techno tricks,
A chip in every hand!
Security in memory sticks,
As there are grains of sand!
But what the people wonder most,
Is just how does it feel,
To serve as greed's most willful host,
At history's very wheel?
Fed by the fear of piracy,
And crescent of the Turk,
The indiscreet conspiracy,
Was one that didn't work.
Bernie and Bill forgot the Swiss,
With water boards and tension.
Security they took amiss,
Geneva lost convention.
And so the Swiss repaid in kind,
Exposing sordid laundry.
Bernie and Bill were in a bind,
They shared a bank book quandary!
