Hey everybody!

Im from the UK and would like to introduce myself here on the ATS boards.

I've been lurking around this site for the past 8 months or so, but felt it the right time to contribute and assist in the awakening.

There's so many interesting topics to get involved in, it was hard to sit back and just observe for much longer!


Have a good day everyone!

CTE.

Thanks everyone!

Ah my post title is a famous quote from the movie Network (1976) which is used when the character Howard Beale is telling his viewers what to do after describing the current state of society:

"I don't have to tell you things are bad. Everybody knows things are bad. It's a depression. Everybody's out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickel's work, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there's nobody anywhere who seems to know what to do, and there's no end to it. We know the air is unfit to breathe and our food is unfit to eat, and we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad.

You've got to say, 'I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!' So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, 'I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!'"

Isn't it amazing how a movie from 33 years ago, can have such an accurate description of the world we live in today.

Yes, it's definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen it already


Thanks again everyone for the warm welcomes.

I always come to these boards to get a better and more clear idea of whats *really* going on in the world, behind the scenes of the MSM.
