I'm about ready to leave ATS for good. Things have gotten ridiculous here. Any evidence that goes against the conspiracy is ignored and the person
who posted it is attacked. People are so desperate to live in their own little worlds that they ignore any bit of evidence that suggests that the
world isn't so bad after all.
To be honest, people here scare me. No matter what they say, it seems that an alarming number of people on here truly want to see chaos erupt in the
world. It makes them seem like a bunch of kids. The way kids would rebel and run away because they aren't satisfied with their home and families,
some people on here want something, anyway, to happen (even if it means WWIII) that will change the world. They don't think about consequences, nor
can they accept the fact that not everything is a conspiracy. That last bit is the key. Some people on here have stopped thinking completely. They
ignore anything official just because it's official and blindly believe in the conspiracy. It's seen as an undesirable trait to believe anything the
government or MSM says, even if the alternative (conspiracy theory) is complete lunacy.
ATS isn't about conspiracies anymore. It isn't about exposing the evils of the government, military, MSM, etc. All of that is gone. ATS is now just
a den of anti-conformists. No matter how ridiculous the conspiracy theory is, it's just not cool, nor is it acceptable, to believe the official
version of events. I think this is why people ignore and attack any evidence that dares to debunk a conspiracy. It's just not "fun" unless the
conspiracy is true.
I've nearly had it. Unless all the pointless bickering, name-calling, and blind devotion to anti-establishment ideas (even when they're ridiculous)
comes to an end (or at least starts to decline), I might just have to leave it order to keep my sanity.
