I think everyone on ATS knows that it is like that already. They may not have known the name of it though.edit on 14-4-2014 by rickymouse because: (no reason given)
I'm not so sure. In the political threads and mudpit; partisanship divided along party lines still seems to be the operating principal.
I see ATS as becoming increasingly theocratic, conservative and ultra right with most members still adhering to the status quo and pointing fingers at the opposite party instead of the real power in America the facist Corporate Oligarchy military industrial complex neocon scum.
This directive from the mod squad seems to be completely ignored imo.

Although the fake right is lame and part of the problem the left is driving most of the agenda and the fake right supports them. The further left we go the closer to authoritarianism.
who represents the real right in your mind?
The biggest 'oligarchs' in this country is the PEOPLE themselves, and when they cry about how they 'don't have enough' they use mob rule( democracy) to give themselves MORE STUFF.
Back to the endless corporate vilification.
We, the People of the United States of America, reject the U.S. Supreme Court's Citizens United ruling and other related cases, and move to amend our Constitution to firmly establish that money is not speech, and that human beings, not corporations, are persons entitled to constitutional rights.
One thing Marx wouldn't have done, that Klein does right away, is use the non-classification term "middle class", which has no set definition. It bases on wealth/income, rather than one's relation to the means of production—a relation which actually serves to clearly explain class power and distribution of wealth. Marx used class to determine where one sat in relation to the overall structure of the system, not their financial worth. This is why "middle class" is an meager yardstick by comparison.
The fix is a lot easier than people think. Get rid of life time (career) politicians by enforcing term limits on ALL levels of government. Also get rid of government pensions after they serve...or at least make it a short-term benefit like 5 years after service, or whatever. After that, you integrate back into the workforce and figure it out on your own like all the other people in this country.

The United States Isn't a Country— It's a Corporation! by Lisa Guliani
We belong to the World Bankers....
30."From the days of Sparticus, Wieskhopf, Karl Marx, Trotsky, Rosa Luxemberg, and Emma Goldman, this world conspiracy has been steadily growing. This conspiracy played a definite recognizable role in the tragedy of the French revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the 19th century. And now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their head and have become the undisputed masters of that enormous empire." Winston Churchill, stated to the London Press, in l922.
31."We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world." [history] Professor Arnold Toynbee, in a June l931 speech before the Institute for the Study of International Affairs in Copenhagen.
19."We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent." Statement by Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) member James Warburg to The Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17th, l950
20."The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes." Benjamin Disraeli, first Prime Minister of England, in a novel he published in 1844 called Coningsby, the New Generation
22. "In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press....They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. "An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers." U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, 1917
18. "No one will enter the New World Order unless he or she will make a pledge to worship Lucifer. No one will enter the New Age unless he will take a Luciferian Initiation." David Spangler, Director of Planetary Initiative, United Nations
87.Lucis Trust NGO officially recognized by the UN, incorporated in 1924 as Lucifer Publishing, identifies Lucifer as the "Solar Logos" (logos - greek for "spirit") World Goodwill. sister organization
12. "We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries." David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.
15. "We are not going to achieve a New World Order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money." - Arthur Schlesinger Jr., 'The CFR Journal Foreign Affairs', August 1975.
138."The interests behind the Bush Administration, such as the CFR, the Bilderberger Group, and the Trilateral Commission - founded by Brzezinski for David Rockefeller - have prepared for and are now moving to implement open world dictatorship within the next five years. They are not fighting against terrorists. They are fighting against citizens." Dr. Johannes B. Koeppl, PhD, former German defense ministry official and advisor to former NATO Secretary-General Manfred Werner, November 6, 2001
Four years later, the foundation gave a grant to Princeton University to study the influence of radio on different groups, and Rockefeller's General Education Board funded a study of CBS's 1938 broadcast of War of the Worlds, which was written up later as a 'study in the psychology of panic.'"

I'm glad someone finally pointed this out. This place has become a mouthpiece for ultra rightwing tea party types, convinced the "gubment" is out to take their bibles and guns. They are angry but angry at the wrong people. Deny ignorance? More like wallow and rejoice in it.
I am a skeptic by nature, and almost never post but I've been reading here since around 2005 or 2006 I can't remember. It was a great place to come and read about everything from philosophy to theology, and everything from bigfoot to aliens to ghosts and hobbits. Science and history, I mean it was so great. Now I have to really dig through the front page to find something that isn't something about Obama causing this or that. Depressing really.edit on 15-4-2014 by Anonex because: just wanted to add a bit
