I just recently found this website, I don't even remember exactly how, but I'm very glad I did. Ever since I was a teenager I (as most teens)
questioned authority, rebelled, and wasn't afraid to face the consequences if I felt what I was doing was the right thing. I wasn't the kind to
senselessly break the law or cause trouble for no reason, but I did get into numerous arguments with authority figures. My parents thought I would
grow out of it... but now I'm nearly 22 and have yet to lose that ever-persistent voice that tells me to always analyze and question what I'm told.
A lot of us are on this site because we have a thirst for knowledge that transcends what the media and our government tells us. We know that facts are
skewed. We know that the truth is the light... Like Fox Mulder a lot of us pursue the truth with an almost insane passion, in some kind of personal
crusade. We don't dismiss anything as impossible. I look around at friends and family. I talk to most of them about the things I read, the things I
hear, the things I know to be true... and it sickens me how people dismiss and ignore obvious truths and how they buy into obvious lies. Some
of the people I speak with have even said something to the effect of "Who cares if the president lies to the world, as long as he gets the job
done." Are these people insane? Some people just don't care. It kills me... It kills me how my own family and friends just can't have a clue
about what's going on. I have a select few friends that I talk to about these things and we have a common understanding but sometimes I just feel so
alone... Almost like I'm the only sane one and I'm surrounded by crazy and delusional people! Could it be the other way around? Are these people
sane, is that how things should be? Does anyone else feel like they are alone or simply just crazy, or that the rest of the country is just looney? I
don't understand. Help!
