2006 Annual Good Government Luncheon-Lecture
Were the horrific events of September 11, 2001 representative of a depraved international order? In a lawless world where cutthroat, nationalistic competition reigns supreme, could the leadership of a nation cannibalize its own people for what they call "the greater national interest," or worse yet, personal gain?
Anyone seeking a better future for our world must recognize the importance of developing and maintaining governing systems (local, national, and global) that promote the welfare of, and remain accountable to, their citizens. Occurrences of political conspiracy, militant terrorism, corruption, and oppression are all indications that there has been a critical failure in those governing systems. When that happens, it is our civic duty to take a step back, come to understand the problem, and develop a plan for corrective action.
David Ray Griffin has dedicated the last 4½ years to helping the American public do just that. Having already established himself as one of the preeminent theologians of our time, he put his reputation on the line to scrutinize what he believed to be an inadequate and possibly disingenuous government investigation into the events of 9/11. Through his lectures and his books (The New Pearl Harbor and The 9/11 Commission Report: Omissions and Distortions), Griffin's well-honed speculative outlook, acute logic, and unbiased predisposition are brought to bear on this troubling period in United States, and world, history.
