No evidence presented, no theories presented, nothing, just pandering to the ATS crowd, of course they're going to agree with a vague statement like "we're screwed". What a worthless thread, I'm losing faith in ATS.

So thirty seconds of your life is much more valuable than learning the truth about how the rest of your life will be?
Also, the point of the thread (since you asked) is to show people (for the ones who may still be stuck in their fantasy land) that this world isn't what it seems. This isn't about hits dude, I truly don't care how popular anything is. The truth is the truth no matter how popular it is. I've posted many threads that haven't wasted "30 second of your life", and they only got one, maybe two replies.

No, its certainly not. I was simply annoyed by this, one of far too many posts recently on ATS acting as though there is groundbreaking information contained within. Instead, all we got was a recap of the most basic of conspiracy theory, with the addition of your negative, defeatist attitude. What is that important for? So people can sink into despair if they so desire?
And to your edit - so you're in a fantasy land if you haven't given up, despite the fact that a few evil "elites" own amd run everything? Look, you're entitled to believe as you see fit, but if all you really have to add is that you have no hope or faith, that isn't important, it's just an announcement of one more soul who's failednin the face of adversity.

How the heck did this make the front page. This is just a condensed version of what ATS has been saying in virtually every thread for years. I will be leaving ATS soon, as the validity, credibility and dignity of this once loved lite...has been compromised by MOD bias, ignorant application met with curiosity and interest, repetitive posts and blatant stupidity which makes the front page while my posts of Feminism and the oppression of men gets delete by one particular MOD. I cannot believe that this is on the front page. ATS is dying.

I bet you thought you were being original with this thread didn't you? It's been said 100000 times here before. Threads like this make me laugh because every OP thinks they're the first one to say something like this

At this point, there is absolutely nothing you or I or anyone else can do to stop the people behind the curtains.
Last I heard there was no gold. Well, not in Fort Knox. It's GONE! Just wish I could remember where I heard it.

I want to apologize to you.
In reviewing all of your other threads, its evident you are in your teens as you stated, somewhere btwn 16 and 18 as you stated...and your parents wont listen to you even if you produce facts proving your points....as you stated...so, I was not far off. And the majority of responses you were getting shared my opinion thats its old news. We'll just write it all off as I was trying to get you to understand something not new to any of us...except you.
Where were you in 1998? We were here..and in 1990? We were still here discussing AND LIVING WITH your revelations....maybe not on ATS per se but we none the less were here experiencing this reality of your thread.
At least 50 percent of those here are twice, 3 times or more your age..and like your parents, its just more things we already knew and are living with...your threads are no revelation to those of us living it. You do come off as one who "knows it all" whose parents wont even listen to him. Does that not occur to you? There is some reality there for you to learn from.
When you are talking to some on-forum they could very well be 30 years or more older that you. If you insult them...you'll get nowhere and labeled as a clueless young person thats come to realize what we already knew. If you just would rephrase and direct your words in a more positive way, you'd get farther than you are...and learn something more than you know, or think you know now. And thats a good thing.
If you would lose that attitude against those who dont agree with you...you might make some friends here: for there is much for us all to learn from each other. You know? Its all good.
And get out of the house and way from the internet...the world is large out here and you and I can learn a lot from being outside. It seems that you dont get out much...girlfriend, job, clubs: you should ask yourself why that is?
And when posting on forums? Dont tell us adults...like some of us are...that we need to listen-up! This is important. To you? Perhaps...to us? Not so much...were are living it...paying for it...suffering thru it...when all you need to do is ask Mom to make you a sandwich...so you can go back to your room. And then Mom and Dad continue living thru your new 'revelations"..and thats probably why they wont listen to you.
So, in closing. I apologize to you for anything offensive Ive said...I didnt realize youre youth...and that itself explains a lot. I will follow your future threads with interest...because underneath it all? I think you may have something to say that all of us can learn a lot from...if you would only learn from us as well. It goes both ways.

I tend to agree with the OP. We are screwed. The world is run by psychotic materialists who will stop at nothing to get what they want and they don't care how many people they have to kill to do it.
These people are social darwinists. They believe in fang and claw. They have always been with us but now they have more power than ever before and they will use it to get absolute control over everything. They are self centered and insane.
They are completely lacking in wisdom and refinement.
But worse than that, they have innumerable collaborators among us, people who are willing to become mini-me to the sociopath above them.
Currently in America the middle class is being gouged out of existence, but the real horror is that it is not some oligarch that is doing it. No. It is segments of the middle class itself who are gouging their fellows out of existence in a mad scramble to join the wealthiest segment of society. These middle class monsters will stop at nothing to achieve their aims. They are mini-me's. The trolls and ogres who are giving the American economy it's coup de grace, neighborhood by neighborhood.
Who knows what catastrophic convulsion will precede the next renegotiation of the American social contract? All I know is that ordinary people will not be negotiating from a position of strength.
Americans hate one another and they are only too willing to sell each other out. My gut feeling.edit on 2-9-2012 by ipsedixit because: (no reason given)
