In this section we will listen to, watch and read what psychologists and sociologists have to say about our reluctance to fully embrace the evidence of 9/11.
We will come to understand that questioning the official account of 9/11 is actually patriotic, that our resistance to accepting the truth issues from what psychologists call cognitive dissonance where when presented two conflicting views of reality and one of those views challenges our basic view of country and world, that we instinctively choose the view that doesn't threaten our world view.
Psychologists, however are also clear that we can't begin to heal as individuals or as a nation until we embrace the truth and hold accountable those that caused our pain.
