This motto has life. It has purpose. It demands ATS members to think.
It is a state of mind.
It is a sense of purpose.
It is a statement agaisnt the paradigm.
It is a rage against the mindless status-quo.
The idea of "deny ignorance" isn't a goal that ATS hopes to accomplish. Instead, it's a challenge. A call to all those who come here to aspire to a higher state of awareness through informed discussion and debate.
Deny ignorance is what we do.
It's how we think. It's how we talk. It's how we listen.
Ignorance is the creeping crud of history that has clouded our minds and dulled our brains. Is the evil that men do, the reason history repeats, and the cause of intolerance.
We deny it. it's not welcome here. Within these boundaries, it has no strength.
Here, ignorance is denied.

From time to time, we get modest or even significant criticism for not using our massive influence to take an official stance on important ideals. Some of them are:
- anti-establishment movements
- 9/11 truth movement
- the disclosure project
- FOIA drives
- and many more
We graciously and rapidly accept discussion of all of these, but reject calls-to-arms just as quickly. We are not about action.

I think from a creator of this websites point of view, the points which he has raised is justed. They are not about action.
The reasons are obvious, as you have mentioned what would happen if someone did something like post a thread saying, all americans go to war...it is a thread which orginate and sturred the emotions of the readers and God Bless intellectually and if people do believe the case, and if an uprising does happen ATS will be held responsible. Hence the effective use of moderators and i guess administrators. In such an instance you and myself will go about our business, but these guys will be in a lot of trouble. Hence I encourage the Creators/Maintainers of this website to do what they are doing. Great Job.
This is an open discussion forum. It is a great site to discuss issues and to reseach and gain better understanding to things which we did not know.
If there is action, to be done, i would recommend to gain information from the website, discuss it and if you really want to make a change and take action, the world is a democracy and each of us has a right to raise our voice.
