We have those on ATS who get worried about, for example, that post about 'if you hoard enough bulk food for 7 days you're labeled a terrorist', and
how in Tennessee those Fed Agents went to some Mormon Food Storage Facility and wanted to know who bought food, etc. And now enter the one I just read
about the middle schooler in Tennessee whose teacher told the kids they have to do this assignment or get an F: Take pics of all the food in your
fridge, pantries, cupboards AND also your entire family who lives there.
People on here get very worried about stuff like this because most of us feel the USA is turning really bad really fast and this is only the tip of
one horrific iceburg.
And then you get those who are chill and say 'relax. It's just a school assignment; you're flipping for no reason at all. Jumping to conclusions." or
"They can't keep you from buying bulk - what about Sams' Club,etc".
Both sides could very well be the correct side. I know this is a conspiracy site and all sides are welcome, but doesn't it ride your mind now and then
about who is truly correct vs who is sleeping/fear mongering/ etc? I'd like to be prepared - but I also don't want to end up with 3 generators like
some did on Jan 1, 2000. Remember that scare?
how do you KNOW which side to believe? I can get SO into some posts on here and be all hyped up - and 7 pages later read something from someone on the
other side of the fence, see wisdom, and lose that hype, though still be on the fence. I try to stay on the fence about things as much as possible.
But sometimes something pulls at your heart strings either to be for or anti.... well.
So folks.... How do you all know which side to believe? And then, if you find out later your side was wrong, how do you react about it? Do you just
go about your way or do you apologize in said thread (especially if you were rude to someone on the opposite side of the fence?) I'm just curious
