Deus Ex, I suggest you mind your own business about what I believe or not. I honestly spoke about my misgivings. And I said I read the material to change that.
You can say whatever you want, but I'm not going to believe you. Like I said in an earlier post- do what the rest of us do. If you don't like a forum, don't read it.
What did you exactly miss in my post regarding this information?
Oh, I didn't miss anything. Just the backhanded implication that we're fundies or nazis or whatever really tweaked me the wrong way, especially coming from you. Or, maybe it was when you implied we were lying about our motives. Yeah, people generally take offence to thinly veiled insults from you, or anyone else for that matter.
I also implore that it is best to leave me alone if you cannot find a simple modicum of politeness or kindness to answer me with respect and to take me at my word.
So, let me get this straight: First, you ask what our forum has to do about conspiracies...which is a fairly stupid question, especially since there's a whack of forums on ATS not dedicated to hunting UFOs or stopping the satellite chip in your brain. Then, you suggest if we want to discuss it, we up and leave. Then, my favorite part, you subtly imply we're whatever demonic force you hate today, and ask that we be 'straightforward about it', as if we weren't before, half expecting us to pull away masks to reveal crosses and swastikas.
You spouted attitude, and that's what you got. Tou get what you give, and if you don't like that, go cry to the ACLU.

All I worry about this topic is whether there is some sort of agenda that is going to be pressed within the forum. And if there is an agenda that supports a particular group (especially those that came to prominence in the early nineties), then, I would have misgivings about a forum like this.
one is because of the community feel of the ATS realm. in a community you discuss all kinds of things.
The second and most important reason is because of the quality of the people who frequent ATS. The intelligence cannot be matched any ware on the web. If the intelligent people leave for other forum sites ATS will become just another forum site, instead of THE forum site.

How can you consider conspiracies without looking towards survivalism as an end to the madness?

Basically, Situation X is any scenario where the government and/or local infrastructure is either unable or unwilling to render aid in a severe crisis situation. Anything from Hurricanes to Enemy Occupation to Revolution to Zombie Infestation and everything in between and beyond.

I agree with Himwhohath- this won't be another 'weapons' forum. There are a lot of places where getting a firearm is about as likely as a rain of toads. those people need survival questions answered as much as anyone else.
You can't live on gunpower alone.
