my mind was very still and I had achieved a semi-permanent state of meditation (yes that's insane and pretentious as all heck) Then I began to read about some sinister things... The 'New World Order', 'Elites', 'TPTB'... This became my new focus and purpose, sacrificing peace of mind in order to see just how far the conspiracy goes.

First of all welcome to ATS where you can be yourself. Some people think I am crazy, I am sure. But I have researched my way to this set of beliefs, always following what my father the cop taught me; "You have to go where the evidence leads you, even if you don't like where it leads you."
IMO you can be popular, or you can be correct, but you cannot be both if you are a thoughtful persons who considers things. Indeed considering things is an unpopular past time these days all by itself. On thing though...
A few years ago, I had an experience, that I understand I'm not allowed to discuss here, suffice to say it was profound and eye opening.
I am clueless as to what you are talking about and just as curious as a cat. I U2Ud you on this even though I know that you have to get in 17 more posts to be able to reply - if I remember correctly.
Anyway, a flag for you for being a person who thinks. Welcome, we need more of your kind here.

Originally posted by Tasmanaut The media here is a joke... The people are dim witted and oblivious, but for this I don't hate them nor hold a grudge, for I know all too well this is to be expected. Most people are unhappy with their lifestyle, trying to out do each other with the bit of money they do have... And yet there are still those that are very rich, exclusive and snobby, that have their own little piece of the pie on this island, buying their way into politics and such... Very slowly, our heath system, education system, economy, tourism, job market, in fact most things about this place are slowly going down the toilet, in a very slow, deliberate fashion. Just slow enough so as to not alarm anyone, and just obvious enough to really fire me up
