I've got two questions for you, as already mentioned in the subject line.
Let me explain.
I've been hanging around here at ATS for more time than I care to count. I've read a few threads that have upset me somewhat, given me a sleepless
night or two, and so on. But there is one kind of thread posts that always manages to get to me, and that is these "Doomsday" prophecies that some
people post, talking about how messy the world in the future will be, how much suffering we're in for, etc. etc. An example is (memory is a bit foggy
but I think that was what the poster was called) Dark Knight's prophecy about something dark and nasty coming our way, and the more recent thread
"Do you realize what is coming to you?" (Which was the reason I made this post in the first place)
These threads bother me, whether they're true or not. I actually find myself, from time to time, (and I hate this, believe me) wishing that I had no
loved ones, wishing I had no family, because I don't want them to have to experience the rollercoaster that we might be in for in the near future.
I've already promised myself - and I live in Sweden, so I guess the threat of for example a police state is lesser here than for example in the US or
UK - that if the human waste products hit the air condition, then I will grab what I can, and head north, to the more rugged parts of Sweden. That's
all good and well, but it's no guarantee, and I sincerely doubt my sis, or my mom and grandmother, for example, can handle such a hike.
So, enough rambling. What I'm wondering is, do you feel the same dispair that I, from time to time is struck with, a feeling of as if all hope is
lost, and we're already on an irreversible down-hill to Hades? And if you do, how do you deal with it?
And secondly, if one of these "doomsday prophecies" is true - I ask especially all you prophets around ATS, who claim to know something, but all
others as well; is it too late? Are we already hammered, or can we still save our own backsides and our planet? Not that I intend to go down without a
fight - and I'm going to make damn sure I bring as many of the lowlives who betrays humanity with me down when I'm going - but I don't want to have
to fight for my freedom, and I most certainly don't want to have to give up one of my lives for it... Anyway, can we still change the course that our
societies are taking right now? Or are we all doomed to a few hundred years of global enslavement?
Meh. It's late here in Sweden, and I can't sleep, so excuse me for possible mistakes in my post, whatever they may be. Anyways, thanks in advance,
and take care, y'all.
