From a psychological standpoint people have accepted that Armageddon is just around the corner. A date has even been named in Dec 20, 2012.

We have been bombarded with movies, TV shows, media propaganda and internet trolls that predict Hurricanes, Earthquakes, Wars, Economic Collapse, Cosmic Collisions, etc.

There’s a good chance that any or all of that may still happen in the next 3 months.

However, if it doesn’t……..

People are going to wake up in Jan 2013.

No I mean really wake up.

Can you image what will happen in Jan 2013 when every person on earth realizes that the world isn’t going to end?

Can you image the rush that will be experienced when the world population goes to bed one night, thinking there was no reason to look beyond 12/20/2012 and suddenly finding out you they have everything to look forward to?

Can you imagine the empowerment that will swell up in people when they realize the future will be what they make of it – that they are responsible for their own fate as apposed to it being predestined?

Can you image the fear TPTB will have with a population that will start demanding accountability for their government, for war and peace, for economic stability, for global progress?

TPTB have a big incentive to ensure something bad happens in the next 3 months because if it doesn’t I believe they will lose their grip on us and their power.

If we don’t perish in the next 3 months….what are your demands of TPTB for 2013?

There have been hundreds of DOOM threads related to 2012.

This one is dedicated to what YOU think about;
- the priorities world leaders in 2013 (What we want)
- the consequences of failure to listen to the people in 2013 (what will happen if we don’t get what we want)

Let’s hear from the world on this thread.

I don't know in which reality you live, but the world population does not think that the world will end in December. A handful of confused people, yes.
And no, there is no propaganda going on trying to tell people that either. It's entertainment.

Also, same thing goes with TPTB. No such thing.

That's a very hopeful outlook, OP.

In fact, I think the opposite will occur. Many will be disillusioned, depressed and dejected and suicide rates will shoot up for a while (especially for those who have 'given up everything').

I don't think any rational person ACTUALLY thinks the world is going to end in three months. I am more inclined to think it is just an interesting thought to throw around, not to be taken as fact. The only apocalypse that will maybe happen in the next three months will be in Iran. Other than that, things will be exactly the same.

You first three respondents may be the most stable minded folk I've seen on ATS.

I think a lot more people than are willing to admit it have lingering concerns regarding a 2012 cataclysm. An increddible amount of the population knows about it just from the sheer volume of media and information out on the airwaves. A 2012 event could potentially be the largest ever predicted event OR false event in history.

Peoples moods and outlook often ride subliminal waves that are related to media exposure and hyberbole.

If you recall a week after 9/11 churches, mosques and synagogue were full and charitable donations where thru the roof. People urgently needed to express a number of emotions.

How will they respond to a huge non-event? Like they just dodged a bullet perhaps? Or maybe as one of you said with the opposite reaction of civil disobedience or depression.

You're quite right. There have been many dates and predictions that have come and gone but I think 2012 is different. It may be the line in the sand for conspiracy theorists.

2012 ties many possibilities together in a non specific world ending cataclysm but if it doesn't happen I think a lot of people will say " I will never pay attention again and get on with my life - I will make sure I secure the best future for myself that I can".

Actually there are quite a few people who believe that something will happen around the end of this year. I'm not one of them though but I do believe this is a way to keep many people from trying to influence any positive change! As for your idea that there's no such thing as TPTB! Wow you are Nieve! We see their influences pretty much everywhere but you don't see it that way! Though they may not be as organized as many believe but they are real! Look up the CFR, the trilateral commision and the bilderbergers then tell me about how these groups have no influence!
Look I don't believe there is one group of people but many groups that add up to about .01% of the western world
and the most wealthy families that are influencing world events! These people have more influence then any world leaders and like calling the shots from behind the scenes! I would love to live in a world free from the immoral compasses of the super rich but the truth is we are all just pawns in a real game of manipulation that
has created the global economy, destroyed any nations that tryed not to participate, has systematically destroyed the middle class of the USA, has created perpetual wars and controls the media to keep what's not news worthy for their agenda out of our eyeline! ignorance to truth does'nt change reality but it does help us to feel secure! Even though this security is a false one it is one that keeps us sane! I see why so many are so
resistant to the truth but only through a global awakening can we ever hope to overcome this evil power that is. I hope you seriously swallow your fear and take a serious look at the world around you! Knowing the truth is the first step to bringing about positive change! Goodluck to you sir...

learned long ago its pointless to worry.... we're born .. we live... we die ... what matters is living life without regrets and trying to make the world a little better along the way ... already enough misery in the world no need to add more to it...
funny its always westerners that I hear going on about 2012 .. elsewhere its just another year and people carrying on with their lives as normal.. doomsday is one of the many things thats unique to western culture ... would be a thread by itself if listed the many things westerners fret over and the rest of the world doesnt give a thought about....

Yes, delusional people, I wouldn't call them the "world population".

Actually, the only way such a group could exist and function is to be organized beyond what is heard of. How do you mean they are not as organized as many believe?



Look up the CFR, the trilateral commision and the bilderbergers then tell me about how these groups have no influence!

What is your problem with the Trilateral Comission?
The whole point with organizations is to have influence. It doesn't matter if it's the Trilateral Comission, WWF or Green Peace. And surely they have influence, just like any organized....organization. In most democratic countries, this is a good way to voice an opinion without going into politics yourself.



Look I don't believe there is one group of people but many groups that add up to about .01% of the western world
and the most wealthy families that are influencing world events!

World events such as what?



These people have more influence then any world leaders and like calling the shots from behind the scenes!

Actually, in most western countries, the leaders have little influence, as it's in the hands of the people.
And what shots are they calling? And who called what?



I would love to live in a world free from the immoral compasses of the super rich but the truth is we are all just pawns in a real game of manipulation that

If you live in a democratic country but feel that there is corruption, I suggest that you do something about it.



has created the global economy, destroyed any nations that tryed not to participate, has systematically destroyed the middle class of the USA,

USA is not "the world". The American spirit is not to care about its own population. Everyone is supposed to be on their own. When there are bad times, it affects most people, and thus the "middle class" gets smaller and smaller, until people start to realize that that sort of politics might not work, because it sucks to be at the bottom.
This has nothing to do with powers behind the scene. It has to do with the American mentality and bad politics.



has created perpetual wars and controls the media to keep what's not news worthy for their agenda out of our eyeline!

Again, if you don't like politicians that want war, don't vote for them. The media has not hidden this in any way.

Global awakening? Aren't we quite aware of what is going on? The U.S, Israel and Iran should ditch religion and start acting civilized. Then most of the tension would be gone.

I mean that many people believe there is one group of people high up that controls every aspect of our lives!
I believe there are many groups that wield influence beyond the scope of the electoral process!

What is your problem with the Trilateral Comission?
The whole point with organizations is to have influence. It doesn't matter if it's the Trilateral Comission, WWF or Green Peace. And surely they have influence, just like any organized....organization. In most democratic countries, this is a good way to voice an opinion without going into politics yourself.

the problem with these groups is these people wield influece beyond the scope of the electoral process!
None of us vote for them and these covert organizations are founded through the scope of wealth and to perserve the scope of wealth at the sacrifice of any of these same nations these groups are suppose to represent! These groups are dominated by the multinational corporate world and this is all they represent but
their influence trumps most any positions of elected representatives! As far as me voicing my opinion through any of these societies or in the vehicle of the body politics this is a nieve look at this possability cause anyone going into either of these groups needs the backing of wealth!

Actually, in most western countries, the leaders have little influence, as it's in the hands of the people.
And what shots are they calling? And who called what?

Actually it's in the hands of a few people and that is the top .1% of earners. As for what shots they are calling
i would have to be there at their meeting to kknow for sure but i can see the influence that is being wielded!
I already answered the who.

If you live in a democratic country but feel that there is corruption, I suggest that you do something about it.

how do you know i'm not doing something about it?

This has nothing to do with powers behind the scene. It has to do with the American mentality and bad politics.

Actually i believe your logic is flawed it has everything to do with powers behind the scene.
Cause bad politics is because of the powers that are behind the scenes! Ever hear of crony capitalism?
We will continue to see this until people get tired of being screwed then they will rise up and blame many people
and probably alot of those that just worked hard to get to the top!
we will see a civil war but this time it will be a class war which will destroy massive amounts of lives and infastructure

The American spirit is not to care about its own population. Everyone is supposed to be on their own.

Do you really believe this? noone is on their own. I wish we could put all those that think this way on a little island to be on their own. We saw examples of how we are not on our own when the big banks were bailed out in 2008
while those without the scope of influence were left to fend for themselves!

Again, if you don't like politicians that want war, don't vote for them. The media has not hidden this in any way.

I don't vote for them cause we have a 2 party system where one side is as corrupt as the other!
As far as where i am now, voting for anyone but one of these parties would not make a bit of difference!
Though i am always registered to vote just in case enough people wake to realize just what point there is to this all!

Global awakening? Aren't we quite aware of what is going on? The U.S, Israel and Iran should ditch religion and start acting civilized. Then most of the tension would be gone.

I am quite aware but not many others are! Most Americans don't even know who their vice president is, where
we are fighting wars and what continents they are on! The ignorance runs deep!

I'm not really sure what you are saying here. Are you talking about lobbying?

If you don't like lobbying by big corporations, don't vote for capitalist parties.
And if you find it just corruption, vote for another party.

i would have to be there at their meeting to kknow for sure but i can see the influence that is being wielded!

You do not seem to have any picture on how power, quite often, changes between "end-point" parties and affects the country accordingly (we were talking about western countries here).



how do you know i'm not doing something about it?

Because you made a lengthy point about how the "TPTB" controls everything and the non-wealthy can't do squat about it. I'm assuming you aren't doing anything because you said you can't.

No, the American politics IS bad.
Other western countries are doing much better, because they are doing a better job.




The American spirit is not to care about its own population. Everyone is supposed to be on their own.

Do you really believe this? noone is on their own. I wish we could put all those that think this way on a little island to be on their own. We saw examples of how we are not on our own when the big banks were bailed out in 2008
while those without the scope of influence were left to fend for themselves!

You cannot be serious?
The poverty in the U.S is very big, even before 2008.
The American way IS to NOT give anyone ANYTHING. You need to "deserve it".
In many other countries, the reasoning is instead that if everyone has the right to get a proper education and free medical care, then everyone has a reasonable chance to make it, no matter where you were born or how your parents are.

In the U.S, even people with "jobs" might do their "jobs" without a salary and only rely on tips. Essentially being slaves.

This is the American Spirit, and most of American politics is based on this. It's just a bad idea.




I don't vote for them cause we have a 2 party system where one side is as corrupt as the other!

....... The U.S does NOT have a 2 party system. Oh dear.
Please don't blame powers that do not exist. Blame yourself for not knowing any better.
Vote for another party besides these two that you know of, and act like you should in a democracy.




Global awakening? Aren't we quite aware of what is going on? The U.S, Israel and Iran should ditch religion and start acting civilized. Then most of the tension would be gone.

I am quite aware but not many others are! Most Americans don't even know who their vice president is, where
we are fighting wars and what continents they are on! The ignorance runs deep!
To see what is used as the mechanism for control see this video
www.youtube.com...

Some Americans, like yourself, don't even know that you don't have a 2 party system!
Again, stop blaming powers that don't exist and blame your and your peers ignorance.

It's quite embarrassing that people from outside of the U.S need to tell you how your country works.
