I look at a lot of threads these days - The most popular being about this election year and I wonder to myself - Who might be correct in their
assumptions, who is presenting the point of view that contains the most truth, the most honesty and clarity?
While thinking of this and similar topics, I go back to some classic ATS conspiracy topics - Bilderbergs, Rothschilds, and such included.I now view
this world with a large amount of skepticism and cynicism due to my beliefs on how things are run - And how things could be ran if people would just
care for each other, desire the best outcome for society instead of self, desire to contribute to mankind...
Look around the world and ask yourself how something could improve - if you believe there's a simple answer - Ask yourself why it hasn't. The answer
is almost always inevitably money, or power, or related to the two.
I've viewed this entire election as just a chess game designed to funnel money and give power to the top - Citizens are more invested than I've ever
personally seen them, but it's not creating the type of change that would bother the elite, not at all. Go and buy your politically-based hats,
shirts, and other apparel, struggle to put food on the table for just one more year because next year, your redeemer will be voted into office, and if
they aren't, well, 4 more years at that grinding wheel and you can live the American Dream. The corporation ran oligarchy monster has a bottomless
void for a stomach, and we're feeding it.
Wars won't end - There's too much profit and power to be had when it comes to war.
Cancer won't be cured - Big Pharma would hate that share-holders meeting far too much.
Food, shelter, water, electricity will not become cheaper, and sustainable efforts will only be made if there's enough money in it.
Technology will only advance in ways, and at a speed that's beneficial to the rich.
Now, these are certainly huge and broad topics within themselves and even I would argue the simple one-line explanations that I've provided, but the
point I'm trying to present, this conspiracy, is that our perceptions, whether correct or incorrect, are something that can be profited from.
Election cycles cannot reasonably be described as anything but a profit and power generator.
Occams razor tells us that the more assumptions you have to make, the more unlikely an explanation is. Should we try to explain the political
situation using a million words or more? Or ten words or less? It's for the money.
Now, this post is not just to spread my cynicism or what not - In fact, it's to spread some hope. With this political season has come some changes
you won't see as much on TV, the social media giants likely censor it or there's just not enough of it yet to censor, and overall it's not the
message we're seeing as much as others, but it's still there, even if it's just a whisper... things are changing.
People are becoming more and more anti-establishment, and every day more people realize that the very people "representing" and "advocating" for
them ARE the establishment. Anti-establishment/elite movements have existed for a long, long time. There's always been a devil in people's mind,
they've just never correctly identified who the devil really is. It's always been communism, Russia, taxes, republicans or democrats, Muslims, the
POTUS, it's always been countries that are far away, or mega-corporations close to home. Regardless, we've been indoctrinated to believe that the
devils of the world are many, and that they cannot be touched, or perhaps a war needs to be fought for an undetermined amount of time to combat those
evils... I am here to share a different message. I believe we can, and will change for the better, it will take a little time but if you believe me,
grab onto the thought process and fight for it.
That's my number one piece of advice for anyone that doesn't like what they see in this country, in this world. You literally CAN make a difference.
Spread a different movement - start out at home, start out in your community. Donate, volunteer, get involved in the local politics and on-goings,
help someone, just do SOMETHING - And when you have momentum, don't stop. You see the effects of such things all the time - People passionate about
trump, clinton, sanders.... There's millions converted to those causes by other people - Take this knowledge and apply it to something more positive.
Even if you just change a tiny portion of the area you live in each day and get others to help do the same, even if each person who reads this writes
one post on ATS that will help someone wake up and realize what they can do to improve their lives or the lives around them, it's still a difference.
Even the smallest pebble of a snowball can grow into a giant given the right circumstances ... Create those circumstances, or, at least try. This is
my vow that I will try. I will start by improving my own life circumstances as my first child will be born next month, followed by helping others as I
am able ( and I WILL be able. )
Anyways it's late and I'm extremely tired, I hope this post makes sense. If you feel like you want to add anything, debate anything, or just in
general reply I'll be back tomorrow. Until then,
