In my (somewhat limited) experience here on ATS, I've been impressed with the level of awareness the Attuned are showing, and I'm often horrified by
the lack of awareness that the Unattuned regularly display. Whenever I see the ever present 'holier than thou' attitude that some of the posters
take, I get discouraged. Granted, some of the Unattuned are somewhat ignorant of all the fundamental ideas that the Attuned are familiar with, but
being a snobbish twit in response can hardly help get the word out.
I've skipped posting in some of threads due to this, simply because I don't feel like battling it out with someone who thinks they are so superior.
Example: I was reading a threat about UFO's in art history. There was a great exchange going on between two or three members, but there were so many
barbs and snotty jabs going on, I felt that anything I would have to say would be shredded immediately....I digress. I guess I'm saying that tact
could be put into practice a bit more.
I agree, it is a tragedy that the Attuned seem to spend more time disputing minutiae than spreading the word, but think about it. The very idea of a
message board is to get into conversations with like minded people, so many people might be satisfied with connecting with this limited group.
Carrying these ideas over to the real world is a different matter entirely. The programming runs very deep and is instilled from the moment we are
born. I've had conversations with friends and family, usually with mixed results. My wife is very open to alternative thought and interpretation of
reality. I'm a lucky guy.
I'm not adverse to pushing these topics to the mass consciousness, but getting there would not be easy. Short of a total collapse of mass media, how
would the 'sheeple' become truly unplugged? It seems the powers that be have the very idea of free thought under their thumbs.
Maybe this kind of change won't come until the unpleasant transformation you envision comes to pass, kind of a cleansing by fire you could say. Very
sad, but it seems to be the case. Maybe Rome really does need to fall for us to fulfill our potential as a species. Great post, OP. I could spend all
night trying to respond.
