The Complete Conspiracy Reference Thread (A 5 Year Summary of ATS)
Ladies and Gentleman,
I have laboured how to start this thread, thought out many a witty opener to grab people’s attention. In the end I have decided to let the thread do
the talking so to speak.
Though I am but a stranger to ATS now, I do come back here intermittently just to get a heads up, to indulge in a little nostalgia. You see it was a
little over five years ago that I created my account here and joined the ‘Alternative News’ community’ it having welcomed me with opened arms. I
was going through what was still undoubtedly the hardest time I have ever (or likely to have) in my life, and during the midst of my distress a friend
made an offhand comment that changed my life forever.
‘Have you seen a film called Zeitgeist?’
I am still tumbling down the rabbit hole now. After watching that movie, we talked about some of the topics and how strange it was that no-one ever
discussed such things. Then he hit me we the next blow:
‘Have you been on a website called ATS?’
What a journey it has been. Having come through my turmoil a new person, here was a new world of information awaiting me, topics that were rarely
discussed i9n everyday life but to me seemed the only topics worth talking about. Who cared how good the latest Spiderman film was!? Didn’t they
know the market collapse of 2008 was staged!?
There seemed so much to learn, and so little time. But instead of being daunted by the prospect; I jumped in head first. I ordered my first books,
downloaded my first documentaries. With every one of them I felt like I had another piece of the puzzle, and the ultimate answer to it all seemed in
sight. How wrong I had been.
The solution, the answer to whatever I was searching for ever eluded me, and in an effort to keep pace I devoured more books, watched more films,
searched for new blogs. The list grew and grew, and five years on, it is bigger than ever. So I have decided to draw a line in the sand and share with
you what I have come across so far.
By no means is this list exhaustive, I wouldn’t possible be able to keep track of everything. What I have done is have the best possible go though,
listing all of the items I am currently in possession of (and including a few guilty pleasures, for old times’ sake).
Why have I done this? Because it took a hell of a long time for me to produce this list, and if someone would have presented me with it in the first
instance, with all the duds removed, and told me that all I ever needed to know was included; I would have bitten their hand off. Just think of the
time I would have saved! Well now, hopefully, I will be saving someone else that time.
Then that somebody might go on to read more books, watch more documentaries with spare time, and might even decide to take it on their selves to write
a new, revised, more complete list for someone else to find.
I hope they do.
You have no idea how much time it has taken me to compile this list! I have been literally working for two full days, taking photos, uploading,
compressing, searching for every title on Amazon and IMDB, creating lists, copying all the required links and ISBNs into a spread sheet, copying all
of that information into a Word file, renaming and uploading every photo to ATS, copying all of the picture code links into this document and then
adding the HTML code to every heading and link. Not to mention any de-bugging I may have to do when I finally post this!
My hands are cramping and chances are I will not be able to sleep tonight, but as you will see from my summary at the end (please take the time to
read this part if you viewing this thread, even if it means skipping through the list to get there) it was totally worth it.
As well as posting here on ATS I have made the decision to post all of the titles onto Pinterest, Amazon and IMDB as well as my own blog which I
haven’t updated in a very long time. Please feel free to check out this pages, share and leave comments; anything that you feel will spread this to
a wider audience. It has taken a lot of time to put together and the more people that benefit from it the better.
TBC.. Over what is probably going to be several posts... Please stick with me!
