The scars from 9/11 run deep. I think it contributed to the political situation we have now, however you want to categorize it: highly conflictual.

9/11 was the rationale for the Iraq War. That war polarized the public and damaged the Republican brand, Christians, and white people. Basically everything George W. Bush was got tarred. As a reaction, liberals became more radical and elected Obama, which led to further radicalization of liberals. Then, as a reaction to that, Trump was elected, and that caused liberals to become even more radicalized.

9/11 pushed the political pendulum to the right with the Iraq War, then the pendulum swung back left with Obama, then it swung right with Trump, and now there is potential for it to swing back to the left. Before 9/11, there were pendulum swings, but they weren't so drastic. We were more balanced. 9/11 set up the momentum, and now it's still going, back and forth, maybe gaining height on each swing.

So al-Qaeda and 9/11 are why we are the way we are today, that and social media. It wasn't just a one-day event. It had lasting effects. Maybe we have collective PTSD.

I think Bin Laden would feel it was a success to make us so angry at each other.

Or maybe things have always been like this.
