Lol I agree 100 percent about the conspiracy buffs out there. I have kept up with this website for a long time and am coming to realize that alot of what is said here is coming to light as the truth just now. (have to dis-count all the doomsday predictions of course)

All in All. Paranoia is both good and bad. As for the layman, the person who is NOT in the know, the paranoia is increasing and not for the good of that person. For those who keep tabs on world events, the paranoia may be increasing but in expectation of what we know is already coming and have prepared for it, THIS is the good kind of paranoia.

One thing I have to say that bothers me about the thread of paranoia among the masses is that they have ostracized and criticized others with the symptoms as they see it, (such as being squarely in the know about the world around them and of events coming down the pike long before they happen), is that it is the Bureau of Propaganda the MSM which is viably responsible for the up swing in multi nations paranoia.

Even my little peaceful American grandpa is concerend to the point of paranoia for the future and he has always been the most repected guy in town. He watches way too much TV and so I even spare him much of what we discuss here so as to no make him even more so. Of course psycologically he would pass any test given, he is solid, but i see it.

The MSM is all part of the plan though. (and this is MY paranoia speaking) Get the public paranoid enough and one track minded. Make them believe there is only one way to save us all and then bring THAT solution to light, only to later turn it against the public. (such as removal of freedoms)

Sad that the very instinct used by primitive animals for survival, will be used to destroy us. And that is what I am talking about. In humans, not such a good thing.

Very much agree on the MSM, seems we've been lulled into a state of wanton consumerism and self-indulgence, now it's slipping from our grasp can Big Brother step in to save us? Will we gladly seize that velvet-gloved hand just so we can sit and watch American Idol and order pizza?

Paranoia is a very useful label to put onto someone that's being troublesome too, it's not necessarily overt, but phrases like "Scaremongering" get bandied about a lot when someone's saying something out of line with the PTB/MSM.

Regarding paranoia on ATS, I don't think it's too unhealthy in all honesty, the majority of the community seem fairly grounded, sometimes though it's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease!!! So, some maybe barking loudly and make the place seem like an asylum, but in reality a lot of the people responding are being pretty reasonable. The best example of this was a thread on Gangstalking recently, where the OP believed he was constantly (?) being followed and hounded.

My only bitch is all the petty bickering, but that's not paranoia!

Maybe I should have been clearer in my OP about the point I am trying to make. I was not talking paranoia as a survival instinct.

Was talking about paranoia as more of an Obsessive Complusive Disorder (OCD). Where the person/people being evaluated only think of one thing. Something bad (such as doomsday) that takes up the entirety of their time and becomes so ingrained in their soul that they lash out to make sure bad things do not happen to them FIRST.

The problem with that sort of paranoid behaviour is that it tends to bring about the thing you were trying to prevent in the first place, it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy.

It might be interesting to take a look at this thread...

wow...holy crap. I am the paranoid kind of person, but that seems pretty far out there. I will admit that there have been times that I believed someone was following me. But a Federal Conspiracy to get on the nerves of people who believe different than the mainstream? Seems a little TOO paranoid for my taste.

Paranoia is sometimes needed as conspiracies really happen and gang stalking is real. I will tell you the real paranoid people in society are in the police.

they do not solve crimes, but set out to murder the victims, if you do not think so, my life has proved this theory as fact.

I totally agree with you on that one. The ones who are supposed to "Serve and Protect" have become the ones who "Dictate and Oppress"

That thread, along with a couple of others made me really concerned... genuinely I think there's an overall conspiracy that others are a part of and that there is an NWO agenda to rule the world and it's coming soon(ish).

However, it doesn't really affect my day to day life, there's little that can be done, I'm biding my time.

Anyway, I think the majority of people on here are a pretty sane and balanced bunch, discussions get heated from time to time though. Even some of the people who I think are mad don't strike me as paranoid.

I would like to draw to the readers attention an author called Michael Sweeny and the many books he has published.
One of his books called "The Professional Paranoid" where he coins the term "Proparanoid"

link to Sweeny's site

excerpt from his site:

PROPARANOID? What does it mean?

1) paranoid ~ a medical term applied to someone who mistakenly fears being persecuted by others... followed, spied upon, stalked, threatened, etc.

2) opposite of paranoid ~ sorry, there is no medical term in the English language for someone properly reacting to ACTUAL persecution. Some say 'cautious' is the word, but ONLY the victim seems to use that word, usually in self defense against suggestions of being paranoid. Why? Our civilization, certainly as exemplified by professionals within law enforcement, the courts, and medical institutions, simply does not want to believe in conspiracy or bogeymen. If you ask for help, you are simply dismissed as being paranoid, even if you have proof to the contrary - they don't want to hear it, and the victim is victimized a second time in a whole new way.

Paranoia does not necessarily mean that the person is imagining things and it most definitely does not mean they are schizophrenic.

There are very real crimes of stalking and harassment that are happening to citizens of the world and Michael Sweeny is an individual who helps people who know they are being persecuted in the community.

There is a major difference between Justified paranoia and utter insanity. When you notice someone following you, then you are justified to get on edge and prepare the worse. However, when you read that aliens are going to kill us all in 2012 and then start wearing tin foil hats and construct a bomb shelter as a result....that is utter insanity.

hmm..I don't recall reading in this thread anything about aliens or anyone stating such in this thread..this thread was started by a person who experiences organized stalking/gang stalking..a very real crime that is taking place globally.
