Should ATS really be in denial?

(The simple yet effective motto of our membership is deny ignorance, which signifies an effort to apply the principals of critical thought and peer review to the provocative topics covered within.) ATS

As clearly as this is stated in just the facts, it is a slogan and most people are going to remember the slogan and forget the description. So for those who are interested, I thought a review of this slogan would be appropriate for ATS. First of all ignorance is available in every part of human life and in each and every one of us. If you don’t realize this you are in “denial”, and if you are in denial you are partly ignoring the truth. So as you can see with this we are presented with a very real problem especially in ATS. I took a guess that above top secret means access to information that leads us closer and closer to the truth of any particular subject matter. So to really do this we all are going to have to become ongoing experts of cutting through denial and thus revealing the truth.
So let’s start with the facts.
What is Denial ?" target='_blank' class='tabOff'/>

The consequences of being in denial can range from the personal – that lump is just a cyst – to who we are as human beings – the Holocaust didn’t really happen. To be in denial about something that presents itself as a moral imperative is an act of spiritual cowardice. Much better that denial be in the service of personal courage -- to use a dash of delusion to propel oneself into facing up, and standing up." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">meaning of denial

Denial is simply refusing to acknowledge that an event has occurred. The person affected simply acts as if nothing has happened, behaving in ways that others may see as bizarre. In its full form, it is totally subconscious, and sufferers may be as mystified by the behaviour of people around them as those people are by the behaviour of the sufferers. It may also have a significant conscious element, where the sufferer is simply 'turning a blind eye' to an uncomfortable situation. Denial is a form of repression, where stressful thoughts are banned from memory. If I do not think about it, then I do not suffer the associated stress have to deal with it. However, people engaging in Denial can pay a high cost in terms of the psychic energy needed to maintain the denial state. Repression and Denial are two primary defence mechanisms which everybody uses. Children find denial easier, as with age, the ego matures and understands more about the "objective reality" it must operate within." target="_blank" class="postlink" rel="nofollow">changing minds
So after our quick journey through the meaning of denial, the word repression is seen to be a form of denial. This is the main point I am trying to reveal. Look at this quote from ATS

[Deny ignorance is what we do. It's how we think. It's how we talk. It's how we listen. Ignorance is the social disease of history. Is the evil that men do, the reason history repeats, and the cause of intolerance. We deny it. It’s not welcome here. Within these boundaries, it has no strength. Here, ignorance is denied.]

So in this very statement our very own advancement is jeopardised because unwittingly we are leading ourselves on the path of repression. As many may know through experience, to repress empowers. To put a plug on a volcano, just means its going to explode in an uncontrollable way, where as if we were to use that energy we could also put it to the good work of revealing the truth. What do you think? I am interested in hearing each of your ideas on this subject as I feel this would really get ATS rolling. My suggestion is that a much better slogan would be……………..
Enter ATS & Transcend Ignorance!!!
once we start, the will be nothing stoping us anywhere anytime.
