Lilitu hit on something valid.. some of the folks here and elsewhere that are fantasizing constantly and wishing daily for a "revolution" where they
are the lone survivor alpha male with the cool guns that is gonna run to the hills and survive.. maybe be king of the hill revolutionaries.
Perhaps you havent read a few threads where this mind set was not only apparent... it was praised... as well as the fantastic claims of shooting
people who trespass or try to take their hoarded stuff and BoBs... cannibalism when they got hungry and all kinds of movie based nonsense they truly
believe and are gleefully wishing for.
Its a minority here.. but they ARE here and elsewhere promoting this nonsense. SOme need to lay off of the
dystopian apocalyptic fiction and start moving into real world thinking. There are reasonable preppers and survivalists and there are people who are
indulging twisted fantasies. The anonymity of the net allows the rest of us to see it nd the MSM may blur that very distinct line/difference between
My approach to it.. Hey, if thats the way they think or feel.. more power to them. Id rather see them acting out their fantasies on here than sitting
naked in their basements counting their ammo and rubibing MREs all over their bodies while planning armed revolutions and mass murders. Im not one
who demands group think... But they also need to be responsible for their actions and own their words. WHen I say that I will participate in armed
action when the time calls.. if my country calls.. I own it.
Lilitu has just read the same posts I have apparently and is pointing it out.
She may have also seen what I have seen elsewhere that people
initially were all lathered up in some frenzy over this being the second " shot heard around the world" and a call to start this mythical revolution.
You definitely have to wonder about that thought process and those that promote or defend it. Here at ATS I doubt that sickness would be tolerated by
mods or even the overwhelming majority of posters who are decent people and see this all for what it is. Elsewhere.. its allowed if not promoted. The
media will definitely call attention to these places and these posters before this site.. ever. Jared didnt come here exclusively or for very long at
all. He was shut down by several posters in mature and responsible ways. Certainly not the media titillating gossip that is sought.
