I've been thinking about this for years now, and the latest October 7th prediction from our friendly "web-bot" really brought it full circle.
Is it an inherent human nature to secretly want or desire upheaval and catastrophe?
If you spend even 10 minutes on the ATS website, one would certainly think so.
Now before you flame me, let me explain a bit.
I'm not trying to say that we humans like to see suffering. But we are obviously attracted to the extremes. You can easily find proof of this by
watching 5 minutes of television. Violence, gore, blood, and horror are consumed and in rampant demand. With every new generation comes an even more
fervent quest to find it.
Just as a person has the desire to ride a roller coaster, or jump out of a plane - I believe that same adrenaline rush applies to others in secretly,
or unconsciously wanting disaster to happen.
Our Government has happily pumped fear into our hearts and minds ever since Wednesday September 12, 2001. For as many on this board that trumpet it
and shame it - there are just as many if not more that eagerly anticipate the next possible attack, or earthquake or depression.
October 7th has come and gone with little fanfare -yet uncertainty definitely looms.
I'm not trying to say everyone has this nature. What I am trying to do is start a discussion, and see if people are willing to admit to it - or even
consider if perhaps you do seek out the worst and never thought you did before. Are you the next person to pen the "what if" thread? Or simply the
one that can't get enough of reading it? Or perhaps the reason we're all here is because like with Aliens and Ghosts and shadow governments - we
just want to believe things are not as they seem and never will be regardless of disclosure or proof.
