ABOUT ABOVE TOP SECRET
By ATS Discussion Board member, tjack
Deny- To refuse to believe; reject.
Ignorance- The condition of being uneducated, unaware, or uninformed.
The motto of ATS is 'Deny Ignorance'. Two very simple words with simple meanings, yet when combined, a most powerful paradigm is established. How is
ignorance denied? Information. Where does information come from? People. Who can you trust? No one! So what can you do? It's simple. If you can't
trust anybody, perhaps you can trust everybody! ATS is where you go to put an ear to the ground. It is a most valuable resource. It is a growing
global community of freethinking, open-minded people who share a sense of urgency about current events and their effects on the future of mankind. It
is the denial of ignorance that binds us together.
As the world becomes increasingly chaotic and as the nature of things to come unfolds, it can be more and more difficult to gain true insight into
what is really happening at times. In an information age dominated by politically clouded seas of media driven opinion, ATS is a pool of knowledge
that can be drawn upon to extrapolate a sometimes general, but a more often startlingly vivid picture of what is actually taking place. It is the
denial of ignorance that paints the picture.
Regarding opinion, in most discussion forums one sees both extremes and little in between when a topic arises. However, due to the unique
cross-section of knowledgeable participants found at ATS, and their voracious appetite for truth and fact coupled with an unmatched ability to
collaborate, track down, locate, expose, and share information, one finds a virtual bell curve of opinion here. With this 'bell', one can easily
ignore the extremes and average the remainder, thus generating the aforementioned vivid picture. This explains the inverted nature of ATS's member to
traffic ratio. Perhaps you can trust everybody'collectively! It is the denial of ignorance that draws the crowds.
Revolution- A sudden or momentous change in a situation.
With the denial of ignorance comes great responsibility. ATS is receiving a lot of new attention lately, as can be seen in recent statistics. This
will undoubtedly draw even more attention. The proverbial genie is 'out of the bottle' and can't be put back. This will displease some. Some will
seek her downfall, as ATS has, intentionally or not, become a target. She must remain vigilant and not allow 'the powers that be' thwart her
mission. Some will seek to discredit her, they will cry 'conspiracy theorists' or 'nut jobs' but they are ignorant. Deny them. Some will try to
remove her, they will shout 'security threat' or 'indecent', but they are narrow minded and motivated by greed and they are ignorant. Deny them.
It is the denial of ignorance that will allow her continued existence.
She should encourage membership growth, from all corners of the globe, and from all walks of life for there is safety in numbers. ATS should also grow
and develop even greater collaborative skills, for her community is a resource of unimaginable capability. Working together we have and will continue
to make a difference. The truth must be told. Ignorance MUST be denied.
It is the denial of ignorance that will save the world!
This motto has life. It has purpose. It demands ATS members to think.
It is a state of mind.
It is a sense of purpose.
It is a statement agaisnt the paradigm.
It is a rage against the mindless status-quo.
The idea of "deny ignorance" isn't a goal that ATS hopes to accomplish. Instead, it's a challenge. A call to all those who come here to aspire to
a higher state of awareness through informed discussion and debate.
Deny ignorance is what we do.
It's how we think. It's how we talk. It's how we listen.
Ignorance is the creeping crud of history that has clouded our minds and dulled our brains. Is the evil that men do, the reason history repeats, and
the cause of intolerance.
We deny it. it's not welcome here. Within these boundaries, it has no strength.
Here, ignorance is denied.
