I have begun seeing, within MSM content of many nations, statements and opinions that I fear may have actually come from ATS itself. Whether for right or wrong, I am torn by the conflict that we could be innocently helping the predatory or opportunist to defeat what many people would see as a noble goal.
I have to question this statement from your post.
As much as I'd like to believe that ATS members are the best informed and most intelligent people on this earth I know we are not the only people or group that use their brains and make assessments concerning our issues.
Lately I have talked with strangers that bring up the subjects we discuss. Both my children have businesses that deal directly with the public. I spend time just hanging out with them and meeting people. There are people that talk about the very same issues we discuss. It is comforting when I meet the stranger that attempts to enlighten me about the world situation. It is nice to talk face to face with other people that think like me.
I would miss you if you left ATS. Your posts are informative and well thought out. You do deny ignorance.
Sometimes a break is just what you need to clear your thoughts. If you do take your leave I hope you will return soon.
