Freedom Tower – What A Stupid Name December 19, 2006

Ok…. So here’s where you’ll hear it first. The name “Freedom Tower” is kind of dumb. “World Trade Center” had meaning, global meaning. It was the place where the world came to interface, to solve problems on the global front. “Freedom Tower” just evokes that same, stupid naming streak that’s been going on ever since the creation of the “Department of Homeland Security.” “Homeland” was really the best word they could’ve come up with? How about the Department of National Security, or Domestic Security… just something to give it a little FBI or CIA feel. Homeland is pretty much the dumbest word they could’ve used, and at least in my opinion, makes the whole organization seem like kind of a joke next to something like the Defense Intelligence Agency, or the National Security Agency.

So, now they’re doing it again, with the Freedom Tower… Do we really need the word “Freedom” in the title to know what it stands for? So, I will put forth this notion: We are not all morons! These names seem almost “Kid Friendly,” when they should strike fear in the hearts of our enemies, or at the very least, command a modicum of respect.
