I am sure that has been discussed, knowing the diversity of topics presented here on ATS. I would not want ATS to serve this function. I think, just
my opinion, that ATS works best as a secondary site, with respect to discussion of events, rather than being the progenitor of events. As soon as ATS
or one site does this, it changes the game and puts a bullseye on you. If ATS were to go down, it is quite possible the world would end.
Also, consider this: ATS provides the unique environment to which everybody around the world can simultaneously and retrospectively, illuminate a
topic, where ultimately the topic is "metabolized" in a holistic, contributory manner. This allows for not only the sharing of Wikileaks like
information, but the rational and ( mistakenly, though not always seen as important) irrational discussion.
But, good suggestion, nonetheless. Makes me think about the what I am really doing here and how I am contributing, if at all. Need to call my shrink
now - thanks.
