Trolled, spammed, frequented and tasted by millions of folks: ATS.
Within this forum there are important premises most readers prescribe to. These premises, if consciously understood, illuminate an unfortunate
In logical conclusions, one makes premises to conclude, within reason, an obvious outcome. Ex: Premise- All horses have 4 legs; Premise- All horses
legs have a hoof; Premise- I can see 3 hooves on this horse; Conclusion This horse has 1 hoof I cannot see.
Pretty simple, no?
When one wishes to challenge the reason of some choice or program, one first seeks the premises of said logical statement.
I contend, society within the Western World is self destructive.
Now, most of the time, folks posting here on ATS needn't even list their premises, as they're shared so frequently amongst the members.
-WHAT ARE THOSE PREMISES that likely you've already prescribed to?
As evidenced by the board listings, between Political Madness, Aliens, 9/11, Conspiracies, Secret Societies, Disinfo, and Paranormal, those of you die
hard ATS folks hold some certain premises near and dear.
What are those premises you prescribe to?
The Government Lies
The Government is capable of killing to keep its secrets
The Government is capable of torturing to keep its secrets
Truth is difficult to reveal within the clutches of the Government
More often than not, people within the Government are not to be trusted unless they personally sacrifice something for the benefit of the body
Government employees are interested in changing your mind
If one pays taxes to Government, that money is used to pay for Government's wishes as well as employees.
If you knew secrets of Government, Government would be interested to keep tabs on you
If you shared Government's secrets, you would be afraid of what they would/could do to you
I could go on and on, but you the reader have an example of some common premises of ATS members. Many of which you will also likely prescribe to. That
in itself is not interesting; although, if you take a moment to look at one's behavior, you may see incongruous behaviors relative to agreed upon
premises. I know this as the same as George penned it: Double Think.
What might this mean?
Assuming there are an abundance number of ATS members who would agree with many of the foregoing premises, what would that say about their logic if
they continued to fund what they believed as a threat to their own psyche, their own livelihood, their own well being?
Further, what would that say about them if they listened to or ascribed value in publications or "news" of what government (or agents (knowing
secrets) thereof) reported?
The Implications of these Premises Determines Whether or Not Logic Prevails
One who would prescribe to these premises and continue to fund Government... is either illogical, suicidal, or bewildered.
One who would prescribe to these premises and continue to engage in what is called, "the political process" is the same as a man who marries a
One who prescribes to the foregoing and invests in the integrity of Government is complicit in Double Think.
Pure conjecture, although I believe that a majority of citizens agree with the foregoing premises.
Therefore, I believe that society within the Western World is Self Destructive.
