After September 11 we will never be the same This statement may prove impossible to evaluate in any pragmatic sense and should indeed elicit various contrasting responses from different people Therein I suppose lies the point of this exercise and I have no doubt this quote will stimulate heated discussion for years to come The answer of course is true and the answer of course is false The effects of September 11 might be properly evaluated on a number of levels- physical psychological political The wake of 911 has seen the growth of new institutions such as Homeland Security and the modification of old ones such as the FBI CIA customs immigration defense airlines etc These adaptations may be perceived as either entirely new in nature or simply the result of heightened evolutionary processes in American institutions This of course is a question of perception Another question to be addressed in evaluating this statement deals with the American psyche Have the citizens of the United States undergone a psychological shift whether subtle or profound in coping with the events of September 11 Honestly I cant point to any specific cognitive changes in American ideology One could I suppose evaluate the emotional and psychological aftermath based on the reactions of the average citizen or perhaps based on accumulated results My intuition tells me however that the emotional pulse of the US remains similar to that of September 10 When considering long-term changes in the United States one might hypothesize that American politics and foreign policy will soon take a new turn Evidence of governmental evolution is found in interventionist policies in Afghanistan Iraq and possibly North Korea Perhaps the US will move into a more multi-lateralist position though that doesnt now seem to be the case Whatever the direct outcomes of 911 one can easily anticipate significant changes in the nature of American foreign policy Will America recover Yes Will America ever be
