ATS opened a new thread recently, specifically to infiorm people that because of the amount of ad hominem attacks, insults, etc, which have been
observed on 9/11 threads, new guidelines have been put in place.
If you're not aware of it I suggest you have a look at it:
I'm not a moderator, and no, I'm not trying to set myself up as one. I am a truther. I want to know the truth about 9/11.
This matters deeply to me because the offiical explanation of what happened on that day is the basis for some very, very serious consequences which
resulted hundreds of thousands of people being killed, and that is still continuing.
It also formed the basis for 'emergency measures', in the form of the stripping away of very important individual rights. These absolute basic rights
actually existed in law to protect people from any potential Government tyranny. This protection of the people against a dictatorial government is
being stripped away at an incredible speed, still based on the fear of terror, which is, in turn, based on 9/11.
I care very deeply abput all those who lost their lives on that day, and the hundreds of thousands who have been killed as a result. I care very
deeply that my protection as a citizen against a dictatorship govermnent is no longer in place. Once all the legal protections have been removed, the
only so-called protection left is to trust that I am safe putting my freedom, my environment health, and my finances in the hands of government
politicians, many of whom are known to be corrupt. This is not a situation I will accept willingly. For this reason, it is imperative to me that I
uncover the truth of what happened that day, whatever that truth proves to be.
On the basis of the long hours of research I have done, I find so many anomalies in the OS that I find it impossible to believe. I believe there is a
massive cover up going on. I need answers to some very important questions. If the Government wants me to trust it, I need proof that what they say
is true, because they haven't provided that yet, and I need my protective rights to be re-instated.
9/11 is an emotive subject for many, because it is so very important. There are hundreds of thousands of people who feel pretty much the same as I
do, and many who hold the opposite view. That's ok, because somewhere in there lies the truth, and that truth will emerge.
For this reason, I find it helpful to come on ATS and discuss significant issues with others, to learn more, and even to debunk ideas I might have
about what happened if they are wrong. I am after the truth, that is my only agenda. I look at reasonable arguments, evidence and analysis which
support those who believe a massive Government crime was committed on 9/11, and those who don't.
So, when I see people of whichever persuasion come on 9/11 threads and start disrupting reasonable discussion, it bothers me because it doesn't help
uncover the truth, it obscures it.
I am also aware that if 9/11 was in fact a Government crime, as I believe it was, the perpetrators will go to any lengths to prevent this knowledge
from being exposed. People who have the cold blood and callousness to plot and carry out mass murder on such a scale are perfectly capable, of
course, of infiltrating all and any group of people trying to uncover the full details of 9/11.
Hence, for me personally, even people who come onto these threads advertising themselves as belonging to a recognised 9/11 truth seeker group are not
beyond suspicion. It is to be expected the perpetrators will have placed agents in all of these groups with the sole purpose of derailing reasonable
discussion, causing conflict between various groups of truthers and individuals, and especially of causing confusion about the evidence which exists
and the theories being put forward.
For me, I no longer believe the OS, but all alternative explanations are possible until one is proven, beyond any doubt, to explain exactly what
happened. I believe they all need to be given serious and meticulous consideration. As I said before, somewhere in there lies the truth, and we want
to know what it is.
So, I just want to state my intention here.
No matter who it is, or which organisation they state they belong to, anyone who comes on these threads and hurls personal insults and slanders, who
attack arguments in an attempt to discredit them without showing a reasonable reason for doing so, and who directs the discussion away from the topic
for no valid reason, I am going to press the 'Alert' button and report them, as suggested in the ATS guidelines for 9/11 threads.
This topic is way too important for me to do anything less.
