I can only reiterate SkepticOverlord
’s, and other members’ points, that any publicity for ATS carried out by anyone other than official
to be done in a composed and thoughtful manner.
You have to be ready – and sanctioned, of course – to do such work.
I know you are new here. Feels great, doesn’t it, being amongst (some) free-thinking and unblinkered individuals?
It is empowering to have found something in your life to become so passionate about. The examination of conspiracy theory – in all its myriad forms
– can lift you from a life that you didn’t realise was mundane and uncomplicated into realms of thought that are simply life-altering.
It also can open your eyes to wonders and horrors.
And ATS certainly should open your mind
to extreme possibilities, but not to the extent – as Carl Sagan once put it – that your mind
becomes so open your brain falls out. You have to temper the information coming in, and filter it through a process of rationality and plausibility.
You may think that the world is a strange place now, but just wait until you’ve discounted all the lies and liars, and have navigated past the
deluded, then see what you’re left with.
That’s when things get really spooky.
The sudden need to want everyone else to experience the same feeling of belonging and the intense sensation of having gained new and important
knowledge is fantastic, but it can become, if it is not checked by reason and reflection, pretentiously evangelical.
And if you get to that stage of lecturing people self-importantly, then people stop listening to you. No one wants to be preached at (well, a few
people do, but that’s their problem).
I admire your drive. It bodes well. I know you’ll listen to the comments on this thread and take them on board.
