So up to this point, only "irrational" people feared the US government?
This is what it took to wake you up???
I don't think they are suggesting that only irrational people fear the government.
But you have to look at it from both sides. There are plenty of people on ATS who think that there is some ancient NWO, or even Alien beings,
controlling government. I fully accept that anything is possible, but these beliefs are not based in any evidence!
If we were to use actual evidence, the words and deeds of a government, then it is MORE LIKELY that there is a group of military and corporate elites
controlling government. This is not an ancient NWO, there were no industrialists who gave a rats ass about their great great grand kids controlling
anything. They did the same then as they are doing now, being corrupt and making money.
When I see people on here posting YouTube videos of someone else's opinions and stating that it's fact, that to me is being irrational. Reading into
a pattern on a currency and extrapolating that it's evidence of a global elite, without any actual evidence, that is irrational.
It's great having a site like ATS where conspiracy is discussed and explored, but to believe that something is real you have to have some kind of
evidence for it, and for many theories espoused here there just isn't the evidence.
Having people agree with you and making videos to rant about it is not proof of anything, and far too many ATS members think that it is.
I believe that it is time to fear our governments, because their actions and words seem to suggest that they are being controlled by a military and
corporate elite, and that they don't care about the public at all. You just need to look at one single fact to know that this is true - the poor are
becoming poorer, and even in the biggest economic collapse of all time, the rich are STILL making billions in profit. That should not be physically or
economically possible, and it is all the evidence we need that governments around the world are corrupt to the core.
Until the global elites are losing money like the rest of the population, the wealth is still flowing upward, and this is only possible through the
collusion of governments. They are continuing to facilitate an extraction of wealth from the people to their masters (and themselves). This is a fact,
no YouTube videos needed.
