Yay, my first rant. I'm not one for ranting in real life, if I do it's normally in a drunken incoherent fashion, that is generally ignored by those
However, these last few days on ATS have shown me a darker side to the site. I have read a number of threads with members advocating steralisation of
the poor and euphanasia for the old. Now people seem to be advocating these things as a solution to our financial problems that have arisen recently.
It seems strange that for a site that is concerned with the actions of the so called TPTB, many members are in fact willfully advocating the same
population reduction policies, some argue TPTB want to carry out.
I think it's the recent attacks against the elderly that I have found most disturbing. People seem to have forgotten that those old wrinkly people
were once young and healthy, young and healthy enough to fight in foreign lands to ensure the freedoms we take for granted now. These people were the
Laborers, the ones who did back breaking work to build the infrastructures of your nations. These were the hard working citizens who paid taxes all
their lives in the hope that when they retired they could maybe have a few years enjoying the fruits of their labor.
Yet it seems some see these people as a drain on resources. they can no longer produce and can only take. Well, yes thats how it goes Im afraid, you
give your whole life and then you expect to receive at the end of it.
In these difficult economic times, lets retain our compassion, life is not about the financial bottom line, people and their dignity is more important
than the financial benefit they have to offer.
Dont let this financial crisis turn you into an uncaring meanie, dont get caught up in the race to the bottom mentality.
