It seems like 90% of the threads created on these forums and populating the front page these days have to do with what the media hands to us on a silver platter.

If they didn't want us to know these things then they wouldn't be writing endless articles about them. If they didn't want us speculating and arguing over stuff like this then they would not give it the coverage they are giving it.

Every day there is a new twist or bump in the road and it is always the MSM who have paved the road we travel on, yet people are oblivious to the fact that they are being led like sheep to slaughter.

They've got you guys trapped in their net and you are oblivious to that fact, you just keep coming back to it day after day and week after week. Either you're 100% for Trump no matter what or you are 100% against him no matter what, there is no middle ground for most people and that is exactly how they want it, they only care that you fall on one side or the other.

The media doesn't care whether you agree with their articles or not, all they care about is that you pay attention to their right hand so you neglect to notice what their left hand is doing. You guys continue to take the bait they put at the end if their hook, when will you wake up to realize you're being led around by the nose by the very people you claim to not trust?

The gold is found in the veins of that 10% that MSM isn't force feeding us.

So, you create a thread on your miraculous self circle jerk, proclaiming to be above 90% of ATS users because you're "3NL1GHT3N", nevermind the fact that liberals constantly post CNN, CNBC and WAPO while right leaners have tried to post "alternative" sources as a result of the credibility hit the MSM took during the elections and up until now.

Nah, anyone parroting the MSM is "Trapped".

The media (and more importantly their handlers) do not care if the people are divided...
Just as long as the narratives they push are the only ones accepted.

Division and arguments over those selected narratives is just a bonus.

They (you know who) would have exactly the same amount of power & control over the people even if there was a 100% consensus on every given topic amongst the population...

Perception is the key to control, not division.


If the people were only divided on whether to hang or firing squad these assholes it would pose the same danger to the paradigm.
So division isn’t the problem.

It’s the perception of the reality around us that keeps us subservient.




The above may be above the pay grade of many who say they’re WOKE.

But their focus on “division” is a control of perception...
So they’re not nearly as WOKE as they believe!

Well done you.

It has nothing to do with being "above" anyone, it has to do with people being gullible, and that is not limited to any one side as you seem to think this OP to be about.

The media is leading people where they want them to go. Ever notice that ATS ebbs and flows with the narrative being pushed by the media? That's no coincidence. Whether you like them or dislike then they have you focused on what they're talking about, that's their agenda.

Yes, the MSM is sh*t, but I also see a bunch of users trying to be critical of the information and glean its true mesage instead of parroting it.

Did you forget them, Einstein?

So please, do tell me which thread I've started that buys into the narrative they're pushing? Do you see absolutely anything that would point toward me listening to anything they say? I don't read the news, I don't watch it, the only media exposure I have is the stuff posted on these forums and even that is too much for my liking.

Please do tell me how I'm posting thread after thread on new breaking developments in what the media is pushing because I don't remember doing that.

That was the deal 10 years ago.

But now, the closer they get to their "Promised Land", and the more desperate they get in response to us being empowered with information systems out of their control, well hell look what happened last year; is still happening. Total chaos, rioting, mass hysteria. Look at their social media identity politics social engineering games they enacted to trigger it. This snip is decades in design using the most hardcore social manipulation techniques the whole lot of them from history even from the Communist & Nazi social theory playbooks (and I'm not talking in ideological terms here, the universal techniques themselves they had developed). They've got every possible social group out there pitted against each other in complex ways, to such degrees they often even eat their own forwards and backwards, inside and out.

They aint playing effing games.

This snip isn't a joke.

Kill your TV foos.

There's not much variety on ATS nowadays, it's politics 24/7, they're pretty much the only threads that ever make it past half a day of replies.

And the constant threads on ATS about what they're reporting on isn't a part of that "identity politics social engineering"? Lol, yes it is.

Just what I was thinking today. It is all or mostly sharply divided with nasty rhetoric against the other side. Where has the civil discourse gone to? We are a large diverse population and I believe many people are in the middle which has vanished. Divide and conquer with the other side causing all of the misery and problems in your life. The uber rich and international corporations control most of the wealth and power and have us fighting amongst ourselves.

Do some real reading, remember reading like in books, about Hitler and Nazi Germany. If things get bad enough people will give up everything to gain some security and pride again. Germany was a mess after WWI and Hitler pointed out those problems and gave them scapegoats to blame. It is not your fault, it is bankers and foreign powers who caused this not the wonderful German people. They went from a democracy to a single leader, a dictator who promised Make Germany Great Again. The names have changed but the equations are the same. Divide the population against some of their own and promise prosperity and pride again. There can be no discussion or dissension among the ranks. The leader knows all and makes the proper decisions and don't bother me with unpleasant facts.

I have two issues with your OP.

First, you seem to have elevated yourself above 90% of ATS which is a pretty high opinion of yourself...if you don't mind me saying so (and even if you do).

Second, you seem to believe the media has some collective altruistic agenda (right or wrong) which exists independent of the hand which feeds them. This would be a colossal mistake. The media are the textbook definition of "whores" who will do, or say, anything to make a buck...first, foremost and always! They have zero soul, absolutely zero. The ONLY thing they care about is running content which will sell an advertisement...that's IT. They have just two rules in their playbook, every single one of them:

1. Sell advertisements (money)
2. (see Rule #1)

And what makes you so special? I just love it whenever someone gets on here and admonishes everyone else to "wake up!" because they think they've got the issues down and truly understand when others do not. Frankly, I see no evidence. These people are as clueless as anyone else. They show no evidence of greater insight, superior intelligence, or better positioning placing themselves better able to understand reality. In no case have I ever seen one of these people exhibit anything of accomplishment. There is no evidence they have a lifetime of experience that would put them in a position to be better informed, and they are as likely as anyone else to live in their Moms' basements. Really. What have you "enlightened ones" ever done to earn the trust of the rest of us? All I see are credulous people who have never met a conspiracy theory they didn't like. I'm pretty sure I don't know much about reality at all. It amuses me when people come on here and claim they do. Get over yourselves. You just look foolish.

I haven't elevated myself above anyone, I'm just calling it how I see it. People are eating up the media's narrative day in and out regardless of what side they're on.

And yes, the media does have a collective agenda because they're all controlled by the same people, the political lean of certain outlets is simply a charade to get people to buy into their divisive rhetoric.

Please tell me how what I'm saying is any different than the countless mud pit threads that make it to the front page these days as far as the supposed "superiority" of the OP goes?

Do Trump supporters not believe they're above liberals? Do liberals not believe they're above Trump supporters? If you take issue with my thread then I can only assume you take issue with most others as well.

I take issue with people who obviously put themselves in a superior position with regards to others, particularly threads such as yours. I see no evidence that you are in any way "enlightened." You must be joking. That "other people do it too" (which seems to be your defense) is really irrelevant. Yours is an extremely generic complaint. I see no reason to pay attention to what you say. You are no better informed than anyone else.

Then why post in the thread? Be my guest and ignore me all you want, it doesn't negate my OP either way. Feel free to follow the media where they lead you, just know it doesn't do anyone any good.
