The Other 9/11

“Martin Luther King pointed out that the U.S. government is ‘the greatest purveyor of violence in the world.’ While King’s memory has been honored with accolades, monuments, street names, and the like, I can’t help but wonder how many Americans have truly pondered his astute and discomforting observation about the U.S. government. After all, it seems to me that to be living under a government that is ‘the greatest purveyor of violence in the world’ is not something to be proud of or pleased with. Today many Chileans might well be pondering King’s statement. That’s because today — 9/11 — is the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Chilean coup that the U.S. government inspired and encouraged.” (09/11/23)
