The Uses and Misuses of 9/11

Robert Klitzman, director of the Bioethics program, writes about the uses and abuses of 9/11 in The Nation: "Many historians say that a handful of events have shaped the last 60 years – Hiroshima, Sputnik, the collapse of the Berlin Wall, and 9/11 – a frightening and awesome list.

9/11 is the most recent of these, and the uses and misuses of that day continue to evolve, and its impact continues to emerge."
