I'm wired a little differently.

First, if it's msm, it is a fear campaign meant to steer me a certain way.

Because I know this, I won't be watching any videos/news segments trying to scare me into a corner.

I know crap like that pisses me off, so I avoid it, out of anger.

Thoughts?


We absorb a lot of information into our "memory"
Some of the information is used to increase Objective understanding of reality
some of the information is VOID useless
Its basically what you want running through your conscious and subconscious.
Personally I wont observe these videos of a man being killed beheaded in the name of a god of which some wish to oversee them.
The Irony if that overseer being invokataz behaves in similar ways with those who chose it, souls and physical bodies as it appears they are in seek of destruction.

Observing these videos may not immediately cause issues but why feed the energy (ignore it) the program of fear. Its sad self species hatred being DEMONstrated by ignorance beings who eventually will find the energy they seek or have attracted and when its time they cannot be upset. Especially when flashed all the evol deeds committed why standing @ crossroads to the gates or a eternal hole. What would be their argument of judgment (why in soul mode or out of flesh) to whatever is requesting their arguments? You killed your own kind- babies, children, women & men for your own selfish cause? Explain? Imagine the responses especially when realized they are no longer in flesh.

Dont want to go to deep as to prevent overshadow programs on any conscious observers balance will be found if not here there where reality is more objectively understood.
With that may GOD BLESS ALL* lost to these types of Creation Energy Groups (ceg) ignorance's and may the mirrors polished in the blood of the slain reflect the exact energy upon those providing the blood for polishing on this side and beyond.

1 will not watch these videos not because I cannot take it but because w/o observing directly the energy is felt and understood as ignorance.

I'm gonna jump in even tho that was not directed at me. Yes I would want everyone in the world to see how i died, especially if it was by beheading. As stated above, instead of closing your eyes to the gruesome reality of the world we reside in, open them to it. Witnessing these types of violent acts should motivate people across the planet to end wars and bloodshed. Death in combat is not glorious, but brutal and ugly. Censorship will not change that.

James Foley knew damn well how dangerous it was to go to Syria. He made his choices and faced the consequences as bravely as any man could.

I would never watch something like that.


That's your right not to do so. Would you deny others the right to view it based on your version of morality?


Would you want people to watch this if it was your execution?

Would you want your family to see you die and how you died?


If I were senselessly killed for no legitimate reason, I'd want them to know how it went down.

Yes



I won't because obviously they WANT you to.


That's a stain on them. It exposes them for who and what they are....

I'm not aware that the US broadcasts the executions that take place when someone's time on death row comes to an end - do you also believe they should be available?

The video showing the murder of Foley is a clear threat, but it's also trying to send a message of their power. If they gain even one new recruit as a result of that person watching the video, do you still justify it being available to view?

Do you honestly believe that watching the video of Foley's death has anything to do with ISIS recruits? That may be the dumbest thing i have ever read.

I'd say that should be left up to the soon to be executed. If they were guilty and felt remorse that maybe it being viewed could possibly persuade *some inner city kid/kid flirting with heavy drugs for examples* from following in their footsteps etc then yes.

Weak minded individuals will follow whomever they want no matter what others say or show.

People actually voted for Hitler and still to this day there are those who downplay the widely available film and photographic evidence of actions carried out.

Six of one, half dozen of the other.

That is a head scratcher for sure.

If people feel the need to watch it, then they should watch it. But they need to realize that they are actually witnessing a persons life being taken away from them, and that fact alone should make people reconsider viewing the video.

Not to mention that people are witnessing this mans execution online, at that means that there is a certain level of detachment from the tragedy. People will watch this video from the safety of their homes, knowing that they will be spared from the executioners blade. Sure folk can be outraged or sickened by the video, but that doesn't compare to the fear or hopelessness they would feel if they were at the scene.

I for one won't be watching it. I saw similar videos online shortly after the war on terror kicked off and I will never forget them. The manner and method that the victims were executed were....lets just say they were not a clean kill, and they were ritualistic.

For some, such as yourself and I, it took clicking on a video sometime in our past to understand the gravity of the situation. Fearing and imagining the worse...

Yet, we clicked on it.

Would we do it again? I wont.

Should we deny others based on our own experiences?

People handle death differently. Does the impact of watching an explosion in Gaza make folks feel the same way? Each time the media plasters a bomb drop in Gaza all over the front page of their websight, or in a news article does it register that tens or hundreds of people just died in that blast?

Veterans of war don't have the liberty of selecting which memories they can and can't watch. Fighters over seas don't have the choice to turn away from extreme violence...

Placing your hands over your eyes and ears doesnt make these things go away. If anything it only hinders one's ability to cope with death properly. It's going to happen to all of us, one way or the next. James Foley made the choice to die the way he did when he knowingly went into Syria amid high conflict. ISIS isn't going to stop executing people because the US government censors their videos. That is just not going to happen.

Really? Then I'd say you don't read much. How do you think the British 'Jihadists' said to be guarding the remaining prisoners were recruited, through an ad in the job centre?

The native american indians would fear having their picture taken because they believed it would capture their soul. It may seem crazy but i believe the same thing. I have even made a thread before about how that comercial with the smoker that died with a whole in her throat and she filmed her downfall of health and demise. They showed the commercial in an effort to get people to stop smoking. IMO Every time real death is viewed even on a recording then that person is having to relive the event on some spiritual level. It seems like torture to me. We now have some computer chips that are organic. Humans have been interacting with organic materials for years.

You're missing the point. One that Slayer69 summed up nicely just a couple posts above ^^^. Good luck.

Here is an interesting article in the Daily Telegraph in the UK about peoples fascination in watching these kinds of videos;


At the most basic level, there’s the excitation-transfer theory. Seeing or experiencing something so visceral, so brutal, is a powerful stimulation. It’s not necessarily a good stimulation, but it is an effective one. This puts the person in a brief state of excitation, during which other stimulations van be more vivid or intense. A comparable example would be riding a roller-coaster; once you get off, you’re in that giddy, excitable state that comes from an adrenalin rush, where you feel more “alive”. There’s a lot of complex psychology behind risk-taking behaviour, and people can become hooked on the experiences.

After reading ATS for the last couple of days, its obvious to me that some people are "hooked" on these kinds of videos. I don't know what's more scary, the actual beheading or the lust from people to watch such "Snuff Movies"

Refusing to watch is not a problem and is your right. Refusing to allow others to determine what they should watch and hear is a problem.

People are so drawn to the gruesome that horror movies make millions off it. I will agree that the information should remain free and uncensored, no matter what. History books are full of suffering and cruelty and so it goes. And who really knows for sure....there's half that think the vid is a fake and half that think it's for real; but unless it touches you in your daily life, how much does one really care?

Just another thought to ponder...is watching that video a deep, disturbing experience or simply nothing more than a graphic video game or bad B Horror flic?

Allowing snuff films to be free and unsensored only gives fuel for someone unknown to make their own and have it live on. It becomes an art form that many will pursue just to have a sick sense of pride. This is not rocket science. Some people get off on this sort of thing. I have to ask if child porno falls under the same sick catagory for some of you non thinkers.

I haven't watched it.

I don't want to. I guess I refused to do so.

On the one hand it give ISIS what they want.

To make people angry.

Out of that anger leads to more war.

Very good question.

But that should be a topic with it's own thread.

Still, others, will drag it in...

Best answer thus far. They got the attention they wanted and now we are feeding the monster.
