If there is one thing that I've learned from the three years of lurking ATS, it is that people only know what they read, and what they are told. This
is a HUGE problem! This screams sheeple louder than any megaphone created by man!
People like to claim they know quite a bit, myself included, until just recently I realized... "Wait, the only thing that we claim to know comes from
what we are taught and what we read!" I wonder how many people in the mass public go out and try to recreate things that they read in first-hand
experimentation. The problem is, they can't! We only know what we know about the moon through what we read and are taught via pictures and scientific
representations. We will never go to the moon and see for ourselves! Does this not bother anyone else? Who's to say that we can trust who's teaching
us these things and writing these things? Who's to say that everything we've been taught isn't a fabrication of reality... who's to say what reality
even is, given these circumstances?!
This is absolutely maddening! This is imprisoning! We know absolutely nothing! And the only things we claim to know are handed down as hand-me-downs!
We all have differing beliefs because we all read and hear different things! You see it all over ATS! "Dude that's bogus! Provide proof and sources
plz..." Why? So you can just read what they read and then know what they know only by reading what is inside the link they post, am I the only one
seeing something terribly wrong with this?!
In this modern day we lack innovation from the mass public because of our sickening complaisance! Our desire for comfort and nothing more or less is
baffling and unprecedented! Everything is spoon fed to us, because we are sheep! We are just batteries of mental creation to whatever leader has his
hand over us! How many of you can say that you would come up here with me in Alaska and spend a winter in a tent surviving like the natives here did
not even two hundred years ago? I can hear it now "Uh, why? That's just a cold long winter, what would be the point?" Because if your comfort is at
risk, there is no point, right? WRONG! I have talked with native village elders up here who remember the good-ol days. But their youth has already
submitted to this whole system of only knowing what they read and not experiencing it first hand. Their culture is dying because of this!
Just had to get that red pill off my chest. Feel free to share your thoughts and have a nice day
