I'm not going to post this in the Rant forum, because I not only think that it is relevant to this forum, but I also want it to get some serious
exposure, so that hopefully people will stop.
I just saw a thread in the Breaking Alternative News forum, about how four people had been offered in an act of human sacrifice in Mexico. This is an
example of something which is not news that we need to know about. It is fear porn, pure and simple.
It is not in any way justifiable, for people to continue posting every example of that type of story that they can find, on this site. I don't need
to know about corrupt police bashing people, children killing each other, people offering each other in human sacrifices, or whatever other graphic
example of human depravity that you people are able to dredge up.
This is not, contrary to what some have dishonestly tried to claim, consistent with the purpose of this forum. ATS is intended to
promote insight and genuine education into the reason why the world is the way it is, yes; but in the area of contextual analysis, rather than simply
being a place where we can all read about the most brutal and psychopathic murder that happened last week.
The other issue is, that I know full well that you people are not primarily interested in solutions, so do not try to lie to both of us that that is
the case. You want to read about people being brutalised, killed, and/or sexually abused because you are addicted to drama and conflict. You might
try and lie that it is important to have those stories here, because it supposedly helps us figure out the reasons why they happen, but that is not
the real reason why you want that sort of material.
You want to wallow in it. You want to ooh and ahh over it, and talk to each other about how obviously the world is going to end soon, because it
can't possibly get much more depraved than this, and continue to exist at all. In the case of the conservative hypocrites in particular, some of you
want to get up on a high horse and proclaim to the rest of us how you would never do such sick, evil things; so shouldn't we all consider you
incredibly righteous because of it?
As a final point, in response to a thread from Leftist that CNN had recently lost half its' viewership because of the unmitigated crap that they have
been screening recently, I stated that although television was dying, the stupidity and mindless lack of intelligence was simply moving online. I
cited Kony 2012 and the Trayvon Martin garbage as exhibits for the prosecution.
I'm asking the staff to get involved here. ATS badly needs to lift its' game in general terms, right now. There have been a lot of complaints
about this recently, and they are entirely valid and legitimate.
Please get over your addiction to rubbish, ATS. As well as the attrocity stories mentioned above, I also don't come here to listen to yet another
white supremacist, fascist idiot make a thread about how they supposedly finally have scientific proof, that every other ethnic group is biologically
inferior to Whitey.
It's the 21st century, FFS. Grow up. If we were still living in mud brick or cobblestone hovels with an appropriate technological level, I might be
able to consider that sort of talk tolerable, if not justifiable, but we are not the species equivalent of pre-adolescence any more; or at least we
shouldn't be. There is no other way to say this; the level of white supremacist racism observed on this forum is simply disgusting.
It is inexcusable. You should know better, and if you do not, get psychiatric help.
However, I also do not care, on the other side of the fence, about black people being shot; or about said black people supposedly rising up and
threatening to cause America to disintegrate into mayhem, because they are feeling victimised. Black people die every day, in presumably more or less
the same numbers that white people do. If they don't get shot, many of them still die. It's called the human condition.
So please, ATS. No more racism, and no more fear porn about violent crimes. Political and economic analysis, among other things, are fine; but the
daily brutalisation or murder of a civilian by a cop, or yet another white supremacist diatribe, is not. It doesn't accomplish anything positive,
and it needs to end.
