In the real world, it's nothing more than a defense mechanism. To attribute ownership to things like fluoride, or manipulation is to divert
responsibility. We're not as controlled as most here think. Sure, we're influenced greatly and indoctrinated harshly, and grossly confused, but the
onus is on the individual who chooses to believe what is wrong even when they know it's wrong. We're all products of the same unsound ill reality,
yet some of us choose truth over fantasy. Some of us choose fantasy painted as truth. Some of us choose fantasy entirely. No choice is "right" as it
has all brought us to where we are, the good and the horrific. All that really matters is how that choice effects others and the whole. It's a
product of accepting the fantasy because of tradition, false confidence, and embarrassment. It's incredibly difficult to accept your failings and
move beyond them when you've held them so high for so long. History is full of examples of people unwilling to change their stance because their new
beliefs may contradict the community or self. The pigeonhole is an effective prison. Deny strong labels and your chains begin to weaken. "THEY"
don't need to do anything at this point, we're doing it to ourselves and we're brutally efficient at it.
It basically boils down to acceptance from our side. If the willfully ignorant knew we would love and care for them the same or more, judge them for
their deeds, not their beliefs, then they would be much more ready to change in the face of new information. That being said, I don't think it will
ever happen. New data is often perceived as an attack and a judgement rather than enlightening and freeing. Not matter what clarity of truth is
inherent in the data, it's seen as a challenge that must be met, rather than something that must be contemplated. When the truth is an attack, you
will forever be on the offensive and no one will leave their foxhole when truth is constantly assailing them.
As for the ignorance on this site... People like to hear themselves speak, they like to think they have won something when conversing, especially on
the internet. I don't know what prize they think they're winning, most likely more false confidence. Unfortunately, all they manage to do is dig a
deeper foxhole with every ill perceived victory. There are very strong lines on this site that I don't quite understand. With a motto like "deny
ignorance" the lines should be very blurred and hard to see. Hard lines should be based on objective truth, not subjective beliefs. The starting
place of denying ignorance is to know that you know nothing. I know this, it's not a difficult truth to know, but it is a frightening one to face. So
instead, ATSers editorialize, purport opinion as truth, dogma as reality, and parrot the opinions of others that mesh with theirs. I truly fear for
the future, for as great as humankind is, we're failing just as greatly and we're failing primarily by way of selfish desires not chemtrails,
political lies/correctness, diet, or any other external motivators.
We know what we do harms others, yet we continue to do it. We know those we grant power to abuse us, yet we continue to grant them power, continue to
allow them to pervert systems to a complexity only a few can comprehend. Reality is simple, humanity complicates it. Rejoice that the end is nigh. Our
way of thinking will either be victorious, or we will be relegated to the terrorist/rebel bin and eventually purged from the system. Either way, it's
a long hard fight without compromise, and it's clear we will not go gently, but with harden stance of the truth that benefits all, not the hate
filled eyes of the lies that benefit the few or the one.
