I just want to add that I am now also a COINTELPRO agent (Or so I'm told)! I'd like to say a big thank you to everyone that voted me for that award
and extend my heartfelt thanks.
On a side note, some people are obivously curious as to why I am the way I am and take such a hostile attitude. Well they probably won't believe the
truth as they have already made up their minds, but here it is anyway:
I started getting interested in conspiracy theories properly from about the age of 16. I had not ever encountered ideas like that previously, other
than UFOs, and this was in the days before the Internet was available to everyone cheaply and you were very lucky if you got any access at all.
Instead I used to browse BBSs and download text files from them as well as observe discussions, this is what really started me off.
Once I started going out more and socialising, I then met various interesting people who taught me about various ideas such as the Bible codes, the
eye in the pyramid, the pyramids being built by aliens and UFO's. To actually meet people who had the same interests as me and not just a faceless
text on a BBS was another hurdle in my quest for knowledge.
This was all pre-9/11 of course.
I always had a keen interest in space and it's exploration, I was lucky in that I lived in the country so had a wonderful view of the night sky. My
whole family witnessed a UFO once when I was about 15 and it was from then that I took an even keener interest in them.
In about 2000 I witnessed another spectacular UFO with friends which rejuvenated my interest, especially as several days later we were approached by
someone we knew who told us he had seen it before he was even aware we had. He had been much nearer and could clearly see it was a saucer.
I found ATS when searching for UFO's and Aliens as that has always been a keen interest of mine, though I have put it on a backburner of late as my
attention has been diverted to other subjects. I can mainly blame ATS for that too as once I was hooked I started looking around all the other threads
at the various subjects I didn't even know existed.
I found the 9/11 topics of interest though I don't think I ever participated, I always used to get sucked in quite easily to most topics due the
convincing matter of fact way in which things are written tend to leave you feeling you have been subjected to fact not opinon.
Luckily, one thing that ATS has which I find a lot of other boards don't is a more balanced and fair debate. I often browse over other well known
boards who deal with these matters but I have noticed that they are completely populated by one sided people who are not open to any theory which does
not constitute of pure conspiracy. Anyone who tries to bring balanced debate is quickly banned from my observations or insulted by being called
various Government related names.
Seeing this attitude made me think (perhaps wrongly but it was the outcome) rather negatively about these people and their ideas. Surely they would be
pleased for a reasonable explanation, but obviously not.
The main reasons that I behave and feel the way I do now is from the way I have observed these people treat others and the way I have been treated
myself, I quickly found that trying to put forward even an idea that conflicted with an alternative theory is met with name calling and ridicule.
Unfortunately I seem to have developed the same attitude myself over time and it is directed in the opposite direction.
As someone pointed out in another thread, what is truth is now something personal. Rather than people trying to find out the truth, it's just a mini
battlefield of opposing views, like a miniature version of the social structure a lot of people claim to be fighting.
I also have mild psycological problems which leave me with a very short temper and little tolerance for what I deem stupidity (even though I suffer
from it myself).
When I see someone post something which I consider retarded as if it's fact I can't help but get angry.
I also get fed up with people that prat on about how much better the world will be when they chuck the tyrants out when they're narrowminded,
aggressive and devious themselves. You will notice that I don't
prat on about how much better the world would be with me in charge, because it
wouldn't. OK tell a lie, it would - for me... and my friends.. But I doubt it would definately not be a better place overall - at least I can admit
it though unlike some people.
I also don't prat on that everything is perfect, it could be a lot worse, but it could also be a hell of a lot better.
I also get especially annoyed with dumbasses who like to throw around words like dis-info, shill and COINTELPRO like they know what they are talking
about and everytime someone says anything they don't agree with.. You realise how retarded that looks right? It makes me feel like I'm in a room
with a bunch of kids - sadly I can't stand kids. IT also probably has something to do with why I tend to look down my nose at some people and talk
down to them.
As if they would actually have the ability to spot any genuine psycological manipulation anyway
To those of you that fall into those areas, you do realise that the biggest enemy to the truth movement of any
subject is you right?
OK let me put it another way - you know how I don't do any favours for the views I try and put forward? You know how I make you feel?
Well that's what you do for yours....
One difference though - I am aware of my shortcomings and will freely admit them.
I've rambled on and hasn't really made things a lot clearer, I'll try and put it simply:
Treat me like a dick - I'll act like a dick
Act like a dick - I'll treat you like a dick
