I understand what you are saying and you could help the problem. A lot of people here have not lived where you have, or experienced what you have. You could do a great service by piping up when you see the lies and propaganda you know from YOUR experience are not true.
I try not to comment on the things you talked about because I do not know enough about them. More of us could learn from you though if you cared to share your insight on some of this with ATS.
I know it isn't your job to correct ignorance. I am just saying that there are folks here who would appreciate a first hand view/opinion if you find something stated as fact that is indeed not a fact.edit on 8/18/2012 by Kangaruex4Ewe because: (no reason given)

You are an exceptionally articulate writer. I read that OP a couple of times over- so well spoken.
I do agree with your observations about the misinformation that plagues a lot of the political threads, and I also find the seething, irrational hatred in some of the posts extremely disturbing. Many of those people are so indoctrinated by propaganda that probably nothing will change them, but I believe that some do want to listen and are open to learning. There are a few ATSers from the ME and I'm sure they'd appreciate your help in giving people first-hand perspective on these issues.
It's the stories from personal experience that always make the deepest impression on me, and it's probably that way for many others here too.
I hope to see more of your posts.

I'd say from what I've seen, ATS breeds ignorance.. I just started posting and am getting nothing but cold rudeness,, which is shocking because I see all the other great threads with people exchanging ideas and stuff. I'm being branded as a hoaxer for some videos I posted on youtube 3 years ago when i mistakenly thought what i was recording were UFOs... I actually believed it at the time. Nobody here seems to be able to get over that, so far it seems like a very close-minded place tho I'd like to know that there are any real people among you all, otherwise I'll just stop trying...

And that is exactly why I will never bring my UFO video or photos here. Never. It will be picked to the bones, and then I'll be branded a liar. I see this happen to a lot of people on ATS who have presented something genuine, or something they mistakenly thought was a UFO.
I truly miss the days of anomalies.net. There were a lot of level headed people posting there back then, and we didn't have all of the attacks that people have to endure on ATS.
That said, my husband and I clearly saw something the other night while watching the meteor shower. It was 4 am. We saw a light near Venus. The light zig zagged, stopped, sat still, moved side to side, sat still, rose up, dropped down. It did this for about five minutes, and just disappeared right in front of our eyes. All of this, while the shower was taking place. It was amazing. I'll never make a thread about it here though.
