Up here in Canada, it is not even discussed. Just a few tsks, tsks perhaps.

The Canadian media is not covering it unless something dramatic happens. Those that WANT to know, can easily go online and get all the info they want.

I suppose I could say the same from this perspective. Last weekend, in true NWO fashion, the riot police took over Toronto and through mass arrests put 900 mostly peaceful people in jail on trumped up charges. People were beaten, threatened with rape, all civil liberties were suspended. 1.2 billion was spent on one weekend of security and no one can really account for the money.

I have seen barely a peep of concern on this ATS forum. The NWO is here, now and no one is really paying attention.

I say this because I own a metaphysical bookstore and I end up talking about the Gulf spill to everyone who walks through my door. Guess what? Everyone I have talked to is not only deeply concerned, but are downright alarmed and feel that this is a harbinger of something else.

Most Christians are raised to believe in dominion-ism. They think God made this for us to use as we please because we have dominion over everything and in the end they are raptured into heaven once they use it all up.

I bet if you ask anyone that has any enlightenment they will tell you different.

Oh man, you just described my father to a T. That's him "The Lord is coming back I don't care". Unless of course he's crying about Democrats. Then he says Satan rules the world yet still cries about Democrats. It's a bit silly to me, but hey.

I've been called a moon-bat liberal for the last 4 years of my life. I voted for Bush twice then i voted for McKinney. Granted, I don't think i'm really liberal but hey, I guess if people feel the need to tell you what you are all day. When I got married 5 years ago then the man went off the Iraq, I really started to think about things. I started buying those reusable shopping bags. I started caulking windows, driving less and bringing cups with me when I went to get coffee rather than letting them give my a disposable. My father thought I was strange, still does.

I think we all have to remember something: You can't bring anyone to the light. They've got to get there themselves. Even then, are you sure you are right? You may be just as ignorant as they are.

I am the last to claim anything about "the Lord" - but I honestly don't much care either. I am far more interested in why UVB-76 is going nuts at the same time we pick up some Russian "spies" and NO ONE is talking about that at all!

same here too. I was driving by the BP station (we only have one in our area) and it was loaded with cars filling up. Most people I talk to don't really know whats going on with it. I feel your pain...people think Im crazy for talking about too...they just don't see it as a big deal. They actually think the govt is taking care of it and it will be cleaned up in time for their vacation.

I've been trying to start a new thread with this video, but I have not been allowed to do so.

I haven't seen this video posted on this sight before, but maybe I just missed it.

It presents a compelling argument that the drilling was contrived to create a false massive disaster scenario, and that the BP 'live feed' is false info, so the NWO can cull the population in the coastal areas and forward its NWO agenda. If this is correct, there is no real danger and the whole thing will be 'resolved' once they have achieved their criminal targets.

I think this is very important information and if the video hasn't yet appeared as a thread on this forum, and anyone can manage to do that, please do so!

PS. Just re-read my post...and just wanted to make an important correction. There is no real danger of the sea floor exploding, or caving in - nor of infinite oil spilling into the ocean. There is however, incredible danger to the residents of the area who are being deliberately poisoned with Corexit.....or even maybe something else which they are CALLING Corexit.

These monsters are beyoond description.

Attempting to have your friends boycott BP gas stations doesn't hurt BP at all, the income from a single or even a dozen gas stations means nothing to a giant that international and makes billions a year. The only people you are having an effect on are the people who work locally at BP and run the small stations. These people have no direct ties with corporate BP and are just trying to make a living. The only real way to get something done is if the Government would finally open their blind eyes and take over the spill without politics and finger-pointing leading the way. Your efforts are noble, but it really is not the responsibility of every single person in America to worry constantly about it all day, because they know a single person or even a hundred people won't make it to the oil spill, because BP as the International Entity it is railroads all honest efforts at a true cleanup.

I don't talk to many people about it, but the ones I have talked to don't seem to "get it". Fortunately, I have the people here on ATS and my sister
who do realize the import of this disaster.

I wonder what makes some of us aware and others either don't care or seem to be under some sort of "influence" that makes them not be aware of it... Very confusing. My sister suggested that it may be something in the DNA that keeps some people under the veil and allows others to break through... I don't know. I can't explain it.

But I find it hard to believe that BP is still in business. I would think that EVERYONE would boycott them immediately. It's the only sensible thing to do! But they carry on, doing their business, pulling in their profits... :shk: Amazing!

Is it really that surprising?

People only care for the things that affect them directly, and that's how things should work. There are problems that should involve all humanity, like a World War event, or something like that.

The rest, should be handled by those involved (this meaning, those who provoke/responsible the situation, and those who are affected by it).

That prevents that people that shouldn't get involved, get any type of influence in the outcome.

The problem that you're seeing is people not caring for somebody else problems, and you feel this because you are emotionally connected to this thing.

I refer emotion, because I don't see a lot of threads (or a whole forum section for that matter) about major wars in Africa, humanitarian problems in Asia, and so on...

You see one thread, or a group of threads for some time, and that's it. And even when those problems have attention, nobody really cares except that superficial attitude of "ooh...poor things".

So why should this affect people world wide? Because it shows how oil companies want to eat money? We already know that.

Because it shows how oil companies can take control and keep everyone out? We already know that, they do it every time that they find a new spot to drill...

In the end, it looks like people are surprised because nobody is giving much attention to a problem that happened in the US, and most people immediately think that since it happened in the US, it's "more important" than what happens in the rest of the world.

It isn't the case... Most parts of the world already have their problems to figure out, so there is no much attention that they could give to US problems.

Personally, in all true honesty, I think it's a bit unfair to see this happening. Every-time there is a major catastrophe around the world, the US is one of the first and most important countries to participate with aid (monetary or humanitarian).

It's a bit sad to see everyone in the world with their arms crossed, looking at this thing, growing out of mad proportions.

But in the end, it's like Katrina. When is someone outside of US, every president rushes to help... When it's inside US, it looks like "it's not a big deal", and people start suffering alone, when they should be aid by their own government.

I believe this song is very fitting:

Apathy will destroy this nation one day.

I think part of it is purely aptitude. Most people seem to have trouble making inferences. They basically are incapable of truly thinking on their own. Another part is emotional intelligence. Most people are simply apathetic. I've heard that the next to last stage in collapse of an empire is mass apathy. I don't think people were always like this. It seems to have started in the 80's and spread very quickly.

I agree that most people don't care - welcome to humanity... BUT, the leaders (Bilderberg group, Council on Foreign Relations, etc) care A LOT to train the people to NOT care!

The reason we have situations like this is exactly that - the Powers That Be have created this world of "money = survival" and keep us just out of reach of comfort. When too many people got "enough" they killed the economy, all the while throwing a few disasters and wars at us to keep us uncaring.

So how do we change it?? Fight the system of education, media, and strict laws and raise our children to be aware that big business can't be trusted.

Of course most people don't "care." They've been conditioned that BP and the other oil company and corporate terrorists are lovely. BP is all about wind and solar power and flowers, don't you know? And they're working so hard to save the earth. They made a little "mistake."

Now if this had been terrorists of another variety, Middle Eastern ones, for example, most people would be ready to never mind boycott, but bomb the hell out of any country they were told was a fight in this "war." Conditioning is a very powerful thing.

I will say most do think it's terrible but they're assuming that BP and the government are doing all they can and will fix this and are not paying attention to how.

I agree, apathy amongst North Americans is very high.
Most people live in their own little bubble world these days, as long as THEIR friends and family are in good shape, they are content to just text away all day.
It's so sad, really.

Look at 9/11 it's almost 10 years out and nobody cares anymore about that except the family members who lost loved ones.

I live on the West Coast and I disagree. It is not b/c people over here do not care. Since this has happened I have been doing my level best to get the stories out to people that they will not see on the MSM. I think that is the problem. Most people over here have been hearing conflicting reports/new videos and no one knows what to believe. It is not that no one would care I just don't think the majority of people know how big of a catastrophe this really is.

It's definately a distance thing, I'm 15,000 Kilometers away and
in a different hemisphere. Do you think I care?

As long you keep that crap spinning around in your half, I'm
not that bothered. I used to be apathetic, now I just don't care.

You're absolutely correct. Of course, the ironic thing is that they would care the most if it was them that it was directly affecting. As long as its happening to someone else, it doesn't really exist, which explains the reason why millions of Americans are still lining up at BP to fill up their tanks. To me, that shows just how dire this situation is. Americans have no sense of community and no sense of right and wrong.

The same people that don't care now, will be the very people that will be complaining the most and asking for salvation when this situation, or another one steadily grows worse and starts to affect their family members and encroach on their way of life. However, Karma always seems to rectify those wrongs by putting people on the opposite side of their own apathy. Its too bad that a lesson like this must be learned the hardest way possible as we moved towards the biggest wake up call in all of history.

For those that do care, continue sending your unconditional love and support to all of those in need, to the gulf itself, and pray for healing light to surround our globe. For all those who don't, continue down your trend of apathy and selfishness. What goes around will inevitably come around, and there will be no one there to give a damn when you cry out for relief. The world will continue to spin as if you don't even exist. May God have mercy on you when it does.

Namaste and Love

Dangerous Service to Self thinking, because, in reality, what affects one of us affects all of us.

You cannot get away from something affecting another human that it doesn't actually affect you.

And most people just don't see this.

Like grains of sand.................and "god" is the beach.

I can tell right away you're STO and that is admirable
I try to be the same way too. Sad part is, nowadays, people are now influenced under a cult mentality of Service to Self via the 'me me me' mindset. Most of the country has no clue about what lies before them, but as long as they can keep up with the Twilight series (the vampire posers) and the Top40 lifestyle, they can be content with their own delusions. We're all connected in this world, but diversions and distractions are used against them just as Ceasar did during the Gladiator games. Trying to inform people is a MAJOR undertaking. Denial of selfishness has become the norm, and people have isolated their conscience in order to be popular and accepted. People are inherently addicted to pier pressure. They block out everything outside their bubble as if it doesn't exist.
I've tried to inform others of the upcoming scenarios, and all
I hear is "you can't worry about that stuff. If it's my time to die, then it's my time". It upsets me to know they will run to the cliffs like a herd of lemmings and leap without question.
It's hard to persist in trying to awaken them, as some understand that is the line of free will that we cross in attempting to do so. Wish us all luck, we're gonna need it!

It will find you as well regardless of your distance. That's a promise. And by the way, to be apathetic is to not might want to study the definitions of the words that you use before posting.
