Look, if you're going to post somthing crappy after reading this, please just stop reading & go on to the next post. I'm taking this seriously, just
like everything else on this website. We need to stop hindering our thought patterns with ignorance and try to further to human race with open
discussion. To be open to anything, logical or illogical, because all we know is what we have been taught. This does not mean if it is foreign it is
wrong. It seems that the mind reacts negatively towards foreign information out of fear that we didn't know this information before. There are 38,577
people currently member to this board. We need to take advantage of this opportunity while we can. Just think, if every member stayed home from work
tomorrow, things in our world would halt. I'm not implying that iwe should do this, but please never lose sight of the power we have together. So,
openyour mind & let me answer the question that brought you here.
Great question! In order to further the discussion (and ALL discussions here,) I suppose I'll be the test subject. My father was a conspiracy
reasearcher before I was born. He also collected Nazi flags, pins & anything he could get his hands on, I assume. My mother said he collected
conspiracy literature from the John Birch Society. To clarify, he neither a John-Bircher nor a Nazi or Neo-Nazi. Quite the contrary, my first birthday
cake was a carrot cake with no sugar. He never wanted me to have sugar. Wish I had remembered that. I never remember meeting him cause he committe
suicide when I was 2 1/2 years old.
My mother went off the deep end shortly after that. Then I moved in with my grandparents at 3 1/2. I grew up playing bridge with people 6 or 7 times
my age. Every morning we did crossword puzzles and every night we watched Jeoparady. School agrivated me most of the time due to boredom. So I'd talk
most of the time and get in trouble. Never did homework, but come Friday (test day,) I'd always get top scores in my classes. Majorly pissed off
teachers. Anyway, I quit school in 9th grade after I got a girl pregnant & now I have Agorophobia (and probable Xenophobia,) and all I is watch tv.
Then the 2000 election happened. Then 9-11 happened. Then Fahrenheit 9-11 happened.
My mother always told me to be Independant Party so I could choose for myself. She did the same with religion. Between that and knowing my father was
looking for something he never found (or possibly did,) I've always been intrigued by conspiracy theories. JFK. RFK. MLK. Scientology. MKULTRA. Germ
Warfare. Human Testing. Then the 2004 elections happened.
This was the true turning point. I started watching Washington Journal on C-SPAN, CNN & MSNBC. Before this, I'd listen to Howard Stern (as I have for
10 years,) but now I was wrapped up in the game of politics like I never thought I would be. Total consumption would be the correct term. After all
the issues, debates and everything else, it got the country as a whole NOWHERE.
I recently got a computer (a shut-in's best friend,) and have stayed up day at a clip searching through everything I can get my hands on. I feel like
I'm putting myself through Conspiracy Theory School. As soon as I wake up it's online I go. The first time I actually talked to another human was on
this site. I must say, there are alot of a$$hole in the world.
But from what I can tell, the most interesting topics here are usually filled with fighting, not growth. If 10% of what is said about conspiracies are
true, we need to help one another out by furthering the discussions. Concentrate on objectives as a whole instead of going into our own corners then
coming out swinging. That's what THEY want. Who is THEY? You can't have a decent discussion about THAT because of debate hazed by religion,
biggotry, beliefs & hatered. WE HAVE POWER. THEY ONLY THINK YOU KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE TAUGHT YOU. TIME TO PROVE THEM WRONG.
I'm sorry this was long & that I got off subject, but what do I know. I'm just a 23 year old scared we're all being fooled. Maybe I'm being
