Actually, shot messenger raises a valid concern. Pay close attention here, especially if you are American, our laws have changed overnight
folks. They have the legal potential to criminalize dissent, the ability to track and monitor every single byte of data, and the 'legal' athority to
do something about it now. Have no doubt that you are watched, and have no doubt that ATS is a priority. There has been a recent influx of new members
asking odd and ambiguous questions, listing a number of conspiracies and almost demanding to know who here disagrees or agrees. Watch out folks, I am
of the opinion that they are here en masse, and their motives are a little more sinister than just goading you along lately.
It doesn't take a genius to see the trend in the media either, they are taking the offensive against the "conspiracy theorists" now... show after
show, article after article, they are spending the big bucks now in a pretty blatant attempt to discredit and stereotype us. They are taking us very
seriously of late, and with the new laws here in the US especially we are going to have to be aware of this offensive, and learn to recognise our
liabilities as conspiracy theorists. The internet isn't the anonymous forum it once was, you can be held accountable now for things you say literally
in a Chat Room. They just rounded a woman up recently for sedition, be very careful what you say, how you say it, no joke.
We have all come here to this one site to collect, gather, and discuss information, and indeed some of which obviously would be damaging,
incriminating, or otherwise demeaning not only to the current administration, but the whole system.
This is a treasure trove of dissention, a breeding ground for the open minds which they have put so much time and effort into closing. They are here,
make no mistake about it, more so than ever.
For the first time in human history, we have true access to knowlege, true freedom of speech, and the ability to research or know just about damned
anything. No system of government, no ruling classes, no aristocracy could withstand that kind of transparency for long because the structure we have
become accustomed to is inherently corrupt. Hell yes they want to shut it down, monitor it, control it, and use it to find out who isn't
playing the game by their rules and norms.
This has NEVER happened before in all of human history, and as we let them pass communication laws after laws in the name of protecting us, sadly it
looks like it never will again.
