He should seek counseling and avoid these topics altogether. That type of paranoia can and does destroy lives and is an obvious indicator of a deeper
problem of depression. Is he self-medicating also? I ask because some drugs can cause this type of paranoid behavior. Meth, Crack, Cocaine and others
can cause extreme paranoia.
The use of logic is important here. To monitor everyone would require employing everyone to monitor each other. Think about it sensibly for a moment
here. How many people could you personally monitor 24/7 by yourself? The same applies to the government. If the government did nothing else but
monitor our activities, the current number of employees they have could not even begin to monitor the occupants of one large city.
One truth that often is overlooked here is that; there are 300 million of us. No educated population that knows it outnumbers the government and
military by such a huge amount can be controlled completely. All countries became free based on that knowledge.
There is no plan for Marshall Law. That is utter nonsense. The incredible number of people who would have to be in on it and agree with it, proves no
such plan exists. People have been watching way to many movies I'm afraid.
If they lock us up:
Who grows the food?
Who manufactures the products?
Who builds and maintains the roads and transportation infrastructure?
Who drives the trucks and operates the ships and trains?
Who loads and unloads the ships, truck and trains?
Who buys the goods to create the wealth that made these people powerful in the first place?
Who builds operates and maintains the communications infrastructure.
They need us, just as we are now. To think otherwise is total nonsense and complete paranoid fantasy.
Fantasizing about these conspiracies pulled from the pages of novels and fiction movies may be fun, but it is still fantasy.
The true power of a site like ATS is as a watchdog group. It is the little, unseen conspiracies that are the real ones. They may not be as glamorous
and would not make a good movie, but they are what matter to our lives and futures. Not these grand, glorious, box office hit conspiracies that just
divert resources that could be better used to monitor what is really going on and just maybe; make a difference for the good.
