Why are you asking this?
How paranoid am I? Actualy less than I used to be before I came to ATS. I used to be very, very paranoid and I was scared to look for conspiracy
information online. I was scared that I could get in trouble or something if I got involved with that kind of stuff. Since joining ATS I don't fell
that paranoid anymore because I know there is a comunity here were we can share our info and we know we're not alone against "them". I think what
scared me most was not knowing what was going on, denying ignorance helped me deal with that fear. Even if we don't know for sure what is going on at
least we can at least speculate about the possibilities.
I used to think it was only me (and Holywood) thinking up those conspiracy scenarios. Now I know I'm not alone so I'm not as paranoid as I used to
be even if I know more scary stuff. I'm still very concerned, more than before but I can keep a cool head now unlike before where I was very
Thinking I'm alone was the bigest contributor to paranoia. I know that if I try to resist something like the chip, I won't be alone Before ATS, I
used to think that I would be only one of a few people resisting and that other people would jus say that I'm not being mature, that I'm just
overreacting and to "Stop acting like a five year old and get with the program".
Denying ingnorance has given me courage. In a way you could say that I'm paranoid but with a lot less fear and more courage and a plan of action in
the event of something bad hapening with the government instead of hiding under my bed praying the troopers don't take me away to some camp never to
be heard of again or kill me and make it look like a suicide.
Seeing ignorance in others also adds to paranoia, spreading the word is the best way to help yourself if you're overly paranoid, get it out in the
Just knowing that so many other people are aware that strange things are going on in the governent or otherwise can give you a lot of courage.
Denying ignorance every day,
