This thread is a speculative, philosophical endeavor that may or may not prove to be informative, indeed, even interesting. I only propose it for
giggles because I don't wish to be held accountable to any particular agenda being referenced to in any way. For you see, I'm sure this topic has
been suggested in the past, for good reason and with the most earnest of intentions. Despite this fact there is only the end result of such endeavors
that keeps such questions in the domain of entertainment, frivolous and unproven. So I make no promises to verify any suggestion or even present much
of an argument at all, (how unlike me...)
I'll just point out my observation... (Which I actually am paraphrazing from some other ATS post I read today, sorry, can't remember where or what
or who.) With apologies to whoever first said it and everyone else since, the frame is reference is actually irrelevant to our discussion.
and maybe I'll have a follow up suggestion to get the ball rolling.
The discussion topic is,
"If ANY of this crap is true, we are the enemy."
What I mean by this is, "Even if one percent of the conspiracy we think about, investigate, seek, do and discuss here at ATS has ANY basis in
"it is presumed that these conspiracies are meant to be kept clanedestine at the least and free of oppositional influence at the most"
"we by exposing and contesting (at least certain) conspiracies must be an enemy of said conspiracists."
I'd be interested in hearing some of the 'ol timers thoughts on this matter in a historical context of ATS.
I'd like this to start an open, frank discussion by the ATS Philosophy Dept, particularly in the furtherance of agendas and double agency.
But, on ATS, as in life, one doesn't always get what one wants and I can appreciate that this whole thread idea is pretty lame. Offering nothing in
hopes of gaining something is cheap, but it is possible that someone, who has never thought about this idea before, blows all our minds!
Such is the promise of ATS.
Such is the promise of 2010.
