Will those that have just awakened, go back to the "safer" way? I wonder how if I was to try to discuss a "conspiracy" theory with another, can an incident like this make them turn away?
This in all has made me think of many things, and how those of us that have come so far, became the "norm" in a way, and in a blink of an eye, it has changed. ATS became huge, because more people were choosing to learn, research and share, and how this could even effect the place that we all once thought of to express things that we couldn't with most.
The more we discuss this, and when this person finally begins to speak we dont know what he will say. We have to wait to hear who will be to blame for his actions, as people that do these things dont usually blame themselves.
Will we become the lepers once more? Has all the years of research and discussions taken us back to the dark ages of research? Could TPTB won? Maybe I'm tired, but I see everyone up in arms, and I see no reason to really discuss this person anymore, I am mostly worried about whats to come. I would hate to see us lose everything we worked so hard for, with family, friends, loved ones, to be lost out of fear of one man's quest to destroy.
Whether he is later found out to be mentally ill, or programmed, is to be waited for, but for now, I am concerned with my way.... our way of life, and the freedoms that we have shared, about the topics we hold dear.
