Mods, wasn't sure where to put this. Please move it to the correct forum if need be.
ATS Community, Brothers and Sisters,
I have been a member here for a brief period of time. ATS has served as a place where I have been able to both engage in thought provoking discussion
and also learn more information than I ever knew existed. As a young 22 year old man, I feel as though this community has allowed for me to grow for
What I've learned about the world we live in today is saddening. To become aware of the system in place that has hindered and destroyed our world
troubles me, and rocks everything I ever thought was reality. Many men have been given unknowing consent of our nation's people (and by that I mean
people who know not what they do) to perverse our earth, waste our resources, and overall support a system that has failed us.
All of us here at ATS know that the rook is in. I doubt there is anybody here who actively participates in these forums that hasn't figured out what's
really going on by now.
Now here's the point I'm trying to make:
what are we going to do about it?
While engaging each other online is very important and helps us grasp information that is out there, our country, other countries, every living
organism and our earth are in danger. I believe we are now quickly approaching a fork in the road of our existense. Do we do nothing and hope and pray
the world doesn't implode? Or do we rewrite history books, come together and make one glorious stand to defeat the evil machine?
The time has come for us to stand up. Ghandhi once said we must be the change we wish to see in the world. nobody here, I hope, wants to see us suffer
and collapse. We all are here because we're disgusted and outraged at what's going on and want change. Now is our chance. I refuse to raise my
children, children I don't even have yet, in a prison planet. I refuse to sit by passively and say there's nothing we can do.
I'm ready to begin a gameplan but need everyone's support, ideas and comraderie on this one. I know this community is full of people with many gifts,
and come from many different walks of life.
I suppose virally waking of the masses is the first step. To successfully pull this off will be a challenge without being silenced but I believe it's
possible. But to do it, ironically, will mean practicing some of the same techniques bussinesses have used to control the masses. I would say, correct
me if wrong, that use of video will be our best chance. People respond best to being able to see and connect with a message, brand, event etc. this is
why companies spend so much on Tv ads and why TV is their greatest weapon. If we were to create a short film, under 10 minutes in length that pulled
at the viewers' heartstrings, provided a shocking behind the scenes look at how the tables have turned by using quick, explosive facts, and gave
people a call to action with an organized plan at the end, I think we've got a shot at this going viral.
If you feel as compelled as I do to make change happen, let's all come together on this and share ideas. it can be anything from ideas for content of
such a waking up film, to how it could be presented/shot, to "your idea sucks, here's a better idea." Any and all discussion is welcomed.
"Be the Change"
