I debated for a while about posting this thought here, for several reasons.
I don't need to state them, I'm sure that if any of you had any wierd questions like this, you don't need an explanation of my hesitancy.
But, is it possible that maybe all of us who have joined this forum, joined because we had the same basic underlying idea that our government(s) have
been lying to us, that there are other, more sinister things going on that are not made public?
Probably. So, then if that's the case, could it be that we are all feeding, and feeding on each others fears, building things up to be something
that they are not really at all?
I know that over the last month, (well, that's not exactly true, since ever the OKC Federal Building was blown up, I had an idea that whether Tim
McVeigh actually did it, that the FBI or some branch of government had somehow blackmailed him into it.) Of course, whenever I mentioned this to
anyone I knew, they just thought that I was crazy.
I felt the same when 911 happened. I was immediately convinced that somehow, some branch of our government was behind it. Then again, no one would
give me the time of day when I tried to give my thoughts on the matter.
So, it hasn't really been just the last month (about when I found this site) that I was already questioning. But, when I joined ATS, and was reading
everybody here's thoughts, I felt like, "I knew it all along! I'm NOT the only one!" Which was (is) great.
But I have to admit that in the last month, in just about everything I see on the news, read in a paper, see in a commercial, etc... seems to relate
somehow to a larger conspiracy in which we are all in the process of being controlled, and that as each day passes, the control is getting stronger
and more persistent.
I guess that that's why I sort of half a**ed started wondering if we could possibly be unconsciounsly "mind controlling" each other, just by the
power of suggestion. We are all in a mindset that there are conspiracies going on, we are losing our rights, freedoms and privacy anyway, so do you
think that we are somehow "egging" each other(for lack of better wording) on?
Anyway, I hope you guys understand what I was trying to say, it was hard to find the right words to express my thoughts. BTW, I really don't want to
believe that what I just wrote is true. Maybe I'm looking for reassurance that it's not true.
