If there is a better example of art imitating life for today’s awakening community than ‘A Blanket of Dust,’ I don’t know of it. Of course many dramatic works of the past–those of Checkov and Tolstoy come to mind–contained shrewdly veiled exposures of the existing order, which served as a healing salve for the audience. Perhaps in our society we are not quite as restricted as in those totalitarian regimes of the past, but the TRUTH behind events has never in history been so meticulously, bureaucratically, and technologically hidden from us as it is now.
And so, with the announcement of a new Off-Broadway play set in the immediate aftermath of the destruction of the three towers in New York on September 11th, 2001, we have the opportunity to live vicariously through the protagonist in her relentless search for the truth.
Here is a description of the play from the Flea Theatre’s promo page:
A Blanket of Dust is a political thriller and a new addition to the Theater of Resistance. It is the story of Diana Crane, a modern day Antigone. The daughter of a US Senator whose husband has died in the World Trade Center, her subsequent ordeal in seeking justice for his murder ultimately drives her to the outer fringes of society. Struggling with facts that the government, the media, her family and her countrymen deny, she finally confronts them all with a harrowing act of sacrificial tragedy.
Unintended Impact Of The 9/11 Plan
The initial effect on human consciousness of the 9/11 tragedy was what the planners had intended–though with only limited success. It made modern Americans feel vulnerable in a way that had never happened before, and certainly there was plenty of anger on the part of some citizens that was fed into the narrative that this was an outside incursion from the Arab world that called for military revenge.
However, it was not long after the smoke had cleared that a different impact on human consciousness was felt–one which began to see through the fog–and the intentions–of those that hold power over official narrative. It didn’t help them that 9/11 was somewhat of a botched job, with inconsistencies, errors in execution, and ridiculously obvious tactics–like the planting of a fully intact passport of one of the ‘hijackers’ amidst the rubble of molten steel and eviscerated human bodies.
But it was not just screw-ups in execution that has spawn an opposition to the official story that rivals the long-standing ‘conspiracy theories’ (read: ‘facts’) about the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It is our growing awakening, and the keening of our powers of discernment that are at play here. As globalist Zbigniew Brzezinski warned, ‘For the first time in history almost all of humanity is politically activated, politically conscious and politically interactive.’
17 Years Later
And so here we are, 17 years later, still talking about the event, questioning the official narrative in ever-growing numbers, with an insatiable thirst for the truth behind these events that we KNOW has been hidden from us.
‘A Blanket of Dust’ is timely in the sense that our healing from 9/11 never really took place, as is evidenced by the number of victims family members who continue to gather together and press for the truth, despite the pain that it evokes. One such member is Bob McIlvaine, who lost his son on 9/11 and has been a vocal advocate for an independent investigation ever since. Bob reflects in this video on the importance of ‘A Blanket of Dust’:
The importance of the play is…my feelings about 9/11 are in that play: the absolute frustration of someone who lived through it…she’s trying to tell the world that 9/11 was a false flag, that the government was involved in it. And her father is in the Senate, and she can’t get anywhere with that. And she didn’t know what to do with her frustration.
I’ve had that opportunity, my frustration <went into> being part of the peace movement. And it gives you satisfaction. But the thing is, when push comes to shove, you still have that agony, the depression of what happened. And no one knows what the real answer is. And no one’s solved it, or looking to solve it.
What Diane was trying to do in the play <was> reveal who murdered her husband. And that’s the only thing I want. And I don’t care if anybody’s punished, I don’t think she was looking for punishment or anything. Just tell the truth. We haven’t gotten the truth of what happened. And millions of people have died because of that. And that’s the true beauty of ‘A Blanket of Dust.’
