I truly believe it is a microcosm of America. We have religious fanatics, conspiracy nuts, gays, muslims, illegals, right wing wackos, left wing
wackos, racists, hippies, etc.
I was thinking about it being a microcosm to see if it might possible be true and almost didn't because I thought about how America is also full of
people who just don't really care. They just hang around and go with the flow. The may turn on a news show once in awhile but they don't really
get up in arms about anything.
I thought that faction of people was missing from ATS.
but then I realized all the people who are signed up on ATS but never even post. Then the ones who aren't signed up but still frequent ATS.
Yes, yes, it truly is a microcosm and we truly are screwed.
To the OP, I completely feel your pain/joy. I come to work and get on ATS to fill in the spots where I have nothing to do. As long as I get
everything done, I don't feel too bad about it.
I do sometimes get fed up with this place. But then I also appreciate that it allows for people to come "face to face" whereas in the "real
world" we are always separated.
Some people drive me crazy on here but it helps to know just what kind of people are out there. What kind of people have a say in how the world
should go. It's frightening and exhilarating at the same time!!!
