Interested to see how many people on ATS have tried to talk to friends and family about subjects on this site. Even my closest friends are looking at
me like I am turning into a fruitcake.
Then again maybe it is me that’s losing the plot.
I have tried to get people to open there eyes just a little bit and spend the time doing a little research on world events. Things such as 9/11 to the
current build up to possible war with Iran. Not trying to force facts or statements on any issue, but to get them to spend 5 or 10 minutes of their
time looking at the world, away from traditional forced news and media.
No matter what subject, I get that look of amazement and then ridicule. From what I can see is that the majority of the people in the world will never
believe anything other than what they are told by the media.
Prime example was from two friends I was out with last night, whom I had asked if they were aware of the recently escalating tensions with Iran, etc.
Neither had a clue about it, most likely because it had not been mentioned on the BBC when they watched it for all of 5 minutes one night.
One person I talk to often agrees with a lot of the topics I bring up, but also like many his reply is, so what, there is nothing anybody can do about
it so why even discuss it.
Got me wondering how many people on this site are in the same position as me, trying to open eyes a little bit, but cant.
Have now decided that I will never discuss what I have or may find anymore. When the closest to you think you’re talking out your arse, what chance
