Fear and concern knows no single gender...nor does bravery.
Re: the topic
As others have said, ultimately its likely a reflection of what people are feeling.
Many people are angry, many people are disenchanted, disillusioned and outright disgusted with those whom are supposedly
meant to be working
for us and in our best interests.
Kinda normal to want to do something
about it, which in turn leads to lots of discussion around what if anything can be done.
A few things though:
IMO - most people vent their anger with angry words...but behind it all have very little substance or committed intention to carry out the actions
they talk about. So, for the most part, all you get is *talk* and really at the end of the day little to in any way get overly concerned with.
Sorry, thats just been my own experience within various active protest movements in younger years.
Everyone claims to be all hard and ready to make their stand, everyone is all gung-ho and amped up...and likely everyone honestly at the heart of them
is confident they would stand firm so its not with any deception they say so...yet when you're linking arms on the front row and the 'Man' is
steaming towards you intending to indulge in a bit of batton practice with your skull, well, the greater majority will turn and run...and I don't
blame them one little bit...it's a frightening thing facing getting your blood and teeth spilt.
We, as ATS Members, also need to be mindful of the agreement we made on joining, and continue to agree to whenever we post upon here:
ATS Terms and Conditions
...from the T&Cs:
12e) Compliance With Laws: You agree to comply in all material respects with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations in connection
with your activities under the Terms and Conditions of Use (and for members, the Additional Terms and Conditions of Membership).
...another potential section of the T&Cs would be 15e.) Recruitment/Solicitation
Essentially...if what you're discussing or intending is deemed 'illegal', then its unwelcome here.
Make of that or think of that as you will...but thats the current line in the sand that has been drawn here.
By all means carry on with whatever you wish to do...somewhere else...but on ATS our expectations are we stick to those agreements.
If you do have any concerns or queries about anything that is posted on ATS, please as always feel free to contact any one of the Staff directly (you
can click on any of our names listed on the lefthand side of the main-page...or by sending through an Alert for all staff to review.
