I don't know about all of you, but the sensationalism of many, as especially seen on a day to day basis here on ATS, has turned me more and more
skeptical and desensitized. When you read on what seems to be an almost daily basis things like, 'This is it, US dollar about to COLLAPSE!,'
'Martial law IMMANENT!,' 'China to take over United States land,' 'Government set to disclose reality of extra-terrestrials,' and on and on, it
all starts to become unbelievable. I'm extremely open-minded towards any number of scenarios, and yet at this point when an online posting seems
unlikely, it probably isn't true.
So, I think this over the top manner of presenting things and drawing conclusions may actually be counter-productive. In the short term, it may get
people more interested and riled up. And yet after some time of being exposed to it, I'm guessing many, like myself, become desensitized and tend to
assume things that seem outrageous and untrue...probably are. So, I think to get these ideas to be more seriously considered, over the top conclusions
should be avoided. Cuz if/when any such thing does happen, it'll be the billionth time we've heard it, and many will brush it off.
