True, I am a conspiracist. Like many people here I try to understand the real agendas, the schemes of the hidden powers running our lives. Like most
of us I came to ATS to feed this passion and look for answers and solutions.
Sadly in my quest for answers and solutions I could only find fear, hate, paranoia, denial and very little ideas, hope and positiveness. ATS it seems
is just like the world out there, full of sensationalism and fearmongering. This is a microcosm reflecting the outside world, stars and flags is the
currency and negativeness sells.
We all realize that we live in a very tough, cruel and unjust world. Love doesn't keep the world going on, money, corruption and greed does. I want
to believe that most people here want not only to discuss and analyze the situation but also show us the light at the end of the tunnel and this is
I am sad to observe how people here who have this feeling of Hope, may it be unfounded, are treated as "sheeples" and "mislead". And regarding our
president, there is enough too much hope. It is actually better to have a population driven by hope not by fear, that pushes our governments to act
and restore trust and solve the problems that affects citizens. Politics based on a fearful population only brings shackles and oppression because
frightened people only care about their security, hopeful people expect amelioration.
Of course politicians will try to manipulate this new wave of Hope. It will happen. We just have to live through it and be patient, because we do not
have the means to fight this system other than elections. If we arent satisified with our leaders, let's vote in the next president promising MORE
changes and get more done, eventually politics is cleansed from the bad apples.
I will go further and say that the real sheeple are those who are afraid of Hope and cannot accept it. They may believe in conspiracies and all that,
but have been so conditioned by the media into believing that all is doom and gloom with no real solutions at the end. Because that what the media
does, it is not here to frighten you only get you used to everyday violence, corruption and negativeness and give you this feeling that there is
nothing we can do about it, to give up our Hopes.
I really would like to see more people with Hope. It is just a first step, then we must carry on and demand those changes. We must also be patient,
because not many things may be accomplished during our lifetimes but we have to do it for our children, so they do not have to endure the same
problems we are facing.
