Despite anti-globalism in the security theatre following 9/11, open 
source write-in software by GM foods accelerates global warming and 
Japan's precariat reactor troubles.

you can connect them all:

if the press response to 9/11 had been more open-source, like the social-
media, anti-globalism-provoked outcry to the Japan reactor problems, the
united states wouldn't have forged ahead with its sad security theatre,
forcing the tsa to disrobe your grandmother.  nowadays, with a class of
journalists derived from the precariat driving the 24 hour cycle of tweets,
retweets and "likes", we can't convincingly set up same paranoid apparatus.
sadly, the same can't be said of GM foods, which governments are
increasingly protecting as the [write-in] intellectual property of global
capital.

you might add GE's (Japanese nuclear-plants) failure to pay
taxes on several billions in profit...

The Fukushima global catastrophe illuminates how the 9/11 attacks were
staged security theater intended to distract us from the need to
open-source the genomes of GM foods before they proliferate in a
warming climate and drive out evolved species which offer greater
resistance to radiation.

OK, someone needs to work "precariat" and "write-in" into that.

As for "convincingly" - historically, what has been more convincing
than utter nonsense? The Big Lie is our trump of tropes.
