Do you hate a certain group of people? Does a certain sect of the population just make you want to go out, buy a walking tall stick and just start
Here’s a secret: We all feel that way.
Personally, my beef is globalist, bankers, extremists of all kinds and a variety of others I have not the time, nor intellectual will to name.
Here’s another question.
Do you actively campaign, AFK or online against these people?
Do you actively seek to treat these people as less than human and do everything in your power to anger, troll and otherwise be a nuisance?
Sometimes I do.
I’m here to tell you, that the above behavior is wrong.
I don’t care if you dislike gays, the religious, cops, teachers, lawyers etc. What I do care about is treating people with the dignity and respect
that every human deserves at the base level.
You may judge a person by their actions. Anything else and you are participating in the same nonsense that you are railing against. I won’t
bother discussing the myriad of threads that have let me to feel like writing this thread is not only venting on my part, but a general public service
I’m all for debating. I’m all for shoving somebody’s ignorance, up their own pie hole. Hell I actively seek such debates and conclusions every
time I log on. I’m simply getting tired of the holier than thou attitude that WE as a community have been subjecting ourselves too.
I’m guilty of it, you are guilty of it, and everybody’s name that is going to appear below mine is guilty of it. Just who do we think we are?
It’s starting to feel like a bros club in the conspiracy theorist community.
If you don’t talk a certain way, think a certain way, know the right things and ask the same questions, you’re a fool. It’s almost like now we
expect people to come to the table with their ideas, beliefs and questions already formulated and dug in.
Why are we so jaded? What has caused use to create an atmosphere where people are ALIENATED from the truth and run head first into lies and
propaganda? To me the answer is presentation. It’s how we interact amongst ourselves within this very community that is the real problem.
We often thing we are isolated from the WWW in this little niche we’ve carved out for ourselves. The truth is that we are the most popular
alternative website on the net. Millions of people read ATS and are influenced by the content they read here.
So what I’m trying to get across here in this little rant is that if we don’t change the way that we behave, the attitude of those we are
attempting to ‘educate’ are going to be more and more hostile.
We ask for legitimacy in the media and in a lot of other sectors. We want inclusion of our ideas and our concerns. Well, I have to tell you, we are
acting pretty damn separatist about it.
