The evidence is right here on ATS...every day there's a new thread about guns, and if you ask me it's mostly UK and US patrons bickering about
who's right and who isn't.
We're allowing this to happen, happily and blindly being led into debates that end in name calling and animosity, and I think it's being engineered
and pushed by certain individuals who want to see us divided, and I wonder why.
I've no intention of fighting humanity, I'm not british I'm a human being. The most important thing is tolerance.
On the UK side we've mostly an image of crazy redneck types armed to the teeth, yee-hawr-ing and shooting the place up, banging on about
consitutional rights. And on the other side we've a handful of US citizens who believe all brits are posh speaking, bowler hat wearing polite cross
dresses...yeah, I dress exactly like the bradford and bingley guys, bowler hat and cane.
Take about brainwashed, we're both wrong, and chucking these prejudices around just shows how divided we are.
A while ago I started a thread and stated that perhaps a one world government wouldn't be such a bad idea, I was shot down in flames because people
assumed what I meant was we should roll over and let the current leaders rule the world, but not once did I say that. For us, as a species, to move
forward and progress we need to all be singing from the same hymn sheet, or remain divided...we can't have both.
For the people of this world to win we must be united under a common rule of some kind, not tyrannical, but we need to come together in some way, how
can we unite the world and all of humanity and build a better world for future generations even if we were to revolt and win? We'd only continue
fighting among ourselves because we're brainwashed and intolerant.
If you think all americans are redneck cowboys who shoot everything up - you're brainwashed. If you think all brits are posh, bowler hat wearing,
cane waving, sexually repressed cross dressers - you're brainwashed.
Giving into and accepting stupid prejudices is the product of mind manipulation, we need to let that crap go or we might aswell just give up.
There's a lot of smart people in the ATS community, I'm amazed at some of the things i've read and learned on here over the years...instead of
arguing and fighting over who's right, who's country is better, shouldn't we start getting our heads together, put the nonsense aside and start
talking about what we can do as a community that's actually productive?
It's a waste, it's a damn shame...we're all here to learn and understand yet we can't even dismiss the idiotic prejudices we harbour about one
I don't want to fight americans, or any nation of people, I want us to stand together and take our planet back, and when we finally get up off our
lazy arses and do that, I want us to learn from history and not repeat it, but I just don't see it happening.
I have faith in humanity, I have faith that not everyone is corruptable, there are genuinely good people out there and even here on ATS, but
blindsided abd duped into bickering and fighting when we should be coming together and working towards trying to change things.
Sorry to rant, was never intended as such...I just want people to realise that we are pandering to someone's agenda with all this in-fighting, it's
not good for us. We need to unite against the common enemy we discuss on daily basis in these very forums.
I don't know any ATS'ers that well, never u2u'd anyone or attempted to befriend anyone or get close to them, but I trust some ATS patrons more so
than I do the leaders of this nation. There are clever, rational people here, which is what I was touching on when I wrote the thread I mentioned
earlier...I see lot's of clever people here who I'd sooner trust than any of the politicians or bankers, yet there's lottle or no focus and it's a
sad waste...all I got was derided and called a shill - when nothing could be further from the truth. As a community, isn't it time we started to
think and talk about what we do want for the future of this earth, instead of fixating on what we don't want?
I apologise if I was rude to anyone, recently...in fact I was, without a doubt, and felt ashamed afterwards and done some soul searching. I don't
want to argue with people on ATS because I look to some of them to help me open my eyes on various issues, I've learned so much here and to some
extent actually care about this community, I suppose most of us do. My thoughts and opinions are never set in stone. I'm happy to be proved wrong on
any subject and my opinions are subject to change, I'm not the same man I was all those years ago before I first came to ATS looking to expand my
mind and learn more about the world.
I hate how it's all changed in such a short space of time, sure, there was always trolling and arguing but it's a lot worse now than ever. I don't
want to be continually drawn into these debates because I feel the need to defend the people of my nation, we're not all bad, neither are the
americans, the polish, the french et al, we're brothers and sisters and need to learn to tolerate our differences or we're screwed.
