Dear Dr. T-Ruth,
My local 9/11 TAP group has started to feel kind of negative. It seems some of our members' egos are getting out of hand, and our discussions sometimes get off-topic, or nasty. I don't feel comfortable being in a group that can't get along. Should I give up on the group,
and start my own?
"Seeking Truth and Good Company"
Take heart, Dear Advocate for 9/11 Justice! You are not alone. Every activist organization struggles to keep meetings positive and productive. 9/11 Truth activists are, I believe, smarter and braver than most, but our battle scars about 9/11 sometimes show up as patterns of urgency, hopelessness, brittleness, and blaming. Hang in there.
