Greetings ATS. I've been lurking this site for about a month now, and I've just now decided to join up for discussion!
I'm a twenty-something long-haired university student of history. INTP. I'm vegan. I try to follow both Buddhist philosophy and Walden as guides for living, yet American conditioning still gets in the way.
In the last few years, I've grown incredibly disheartened and disillusioned with the despotic rule of American corporate elites. Researching 9/11 left me in a much deeper hole with many more questions. Events in Pittsburgh scared the piss out of me. The "new world order" is playing out like a script and I/we see this daily.
Anyway, that's where I come from -- probably a very common story here.
It may be a common story, but that's why ATS is the place it is.
We have members that don't just drift downstream, most of us fight the current and paddle the other way. I hope you find members that share the views you have.
Just don't be distracted by those that criticize your point of view, they have a purpose too, they keep us honest.
