ATS talks the talk but forgets to walk the walk?! Introduction to ignite the human reactor.
My story most probably resembles a lot of the people's on here. I've been browsing ATS for quite a while now and have been experienced this itch to
start sharing my
thoughts, reactions and insights to contribute in focusing in one direction which is learning/understanding the truth about
the depth of our indoctrinated general culture and finding a real, permanent and final way to unplug from our imposed Capitalist shackled system.
This is how I view ATS.
Gives access to a lot of fresh, often astonishing alternative information.
This site is alive with fresh alternative information about areas of life one sometimes never thinks about. It helps to let light in where there was
only darkness, knowledge where there was only ignorance.
Ignorance often gets a very bad connotation and linkage to stupidity which is absolutely not the same. Very intelligent, gifted
people can be completely ignorant about what is going on hidden in plain sight because of lack of interest or depth of indoctrination.
Offers a different perspective from MSM, Social Media,...
I have to give koodos to people who are making a clear effort to post non-MSM (Main Stream Media) information. Your digging is much appreciated!
One question though, has anyone ever stopped to think about how a provided source can truly be considered non-MSM in our 21st century media age and,
where is the community's overall MISSION and VISION STATEMENT as well as VALUES? Yes ATS has its own 'website' MISSION and VISION etc. however this
site wouldn't exist without its (figure from About section) 261.000 members. So what's the community's thought about this?
Really enthusiastic people with a common goal to release as much repressed and often taboo information onto the internet as
It's a conspiracy website
A conspiracy website is in itself its own worst enemy. Why? As previously stated, people on ATS are looking for reassurance in some way and to find
plausible explanations for odd and sometimes amazing events acting out around us yet a conspiracy is designed to never be truly revealed hence the
mixture of true and false info. We are all cursed with one and the same "disease" called, lack of visibility and trust which ultimately keeps us in
Overstepping real human boundaries
As much as there are enthusiastic people talking and exchanging their ideas about many subjects, my time on ATS thus far has shown an increase in
people who totally disregard other people's opinions and resort to direct or indirect attacks which, if the same situation were to take place in real
life the outcome would be totally different.
Overly American connotation
Ok, I understand that ATS.com (commercial) is an American based website probably run by American admin with maybe a majority of Americans posting
stuff however, the internet has given mankind a giant leap forward in human connectivity and still most posts I see here are about US this or US that.
Listen, I know that the US is a super power in the world though with close followers such as India, China, Brazil, Russia, Australia just to name a
few. Those countries, as an example, seem to come seemingly less in the ATS news, predictions, dreams, visions etc, than the US. Just a personal
Ridiculously heavy mainstream (Google) advertising
For a website which describes itself as alternative, non mainstream... what's up with the ridiculously heavy mainstream (Google) advertising both in
posts, top banners, side banners, inner banners,... We're fighting a rigged system yet ATS still promotes that system AND
makes money off it
Talking, reporting yet no real life action
I think that this point has been the catalyst for me to join and start writing. Often posts will include a sentence in the vein of "Someone has to do
something about this" or "It's time we start waking up". I will talk about the latter in my first post. What exactly stops us from individually moving
into action offline?! Most often used excuse will be that "I have no money to spend on this right now". Firstly, if you have been saving money to buy
yourself a material good that is not an essential human necessity of life, you've got your values mixed up. Secondly, action doesn't have to be huge
or on a huge scale to be significant. You're creative and have interest in design and self-expression?! How about creating meaningful stickers that
you would just randomly paste on cars, walls, bus stop, mail boxes,... You are skilled in painting/drawing? Super, why don't you draw a realistic
current view of the world (tyrants, disease, hope, love), copy your page 100X and distribute it in people's mailboxes or at the university. The
point I'm making?
We all have a gift that can influence people around us to unplug from the matrix. My dream is to get those minds together
offline in order develop the first ever human think tank seeking to offer tangible solutions to our current problems through peaceful and creative
action outside the imposed capitalist system we currently live in.
Thank you for your consideration, the time has come to free ourselves from those shackles.
