Every so often my wife tells me that I'm addicted
to Above Top Secret. There have been a few times that she has suggested that I was viewing
porn on-line and she has checked my history only to find that, well, that she was wrong. She simply can't understand my fascination with ATS.
I spend about two to three hours a day on ATS and about an equal time reading and researching. Usually, I do all three simultaneously. Of course I
do have my breaks from the computer and I don't neglect work or any of my obligations but, instead of watching television, I am on the computer and,
of course, I'm on Above Top Secret.
Now a report on CNN's web site
will probably lead to my
wife's insistence that I deal with my "computer addiction" with a "twelve-step" program or something.
I can just see myself in a room with a bunch of other folks "sharing" our "problems";
"I'm addicted to porn on the internet"
, "I'm addicted to cyber-sex on the internet"
and then, when it's my turn, at least I can
hold my head up high and say "I'm addicted to learning, knowledge and denying ignorance".
Do you think that you are addicted to the computer and the internet? More precisely, do you think that you are addicted to Above Top Secret? And, if
you are, do you think that we can sue the "three Amigos" -- a class action suit, of course -- for providing "us addicts" with our daily fix of
interesting reading, alternative news, political insights and opinions and for simply enjoying ourselves while doing so?
My name is 'benevolent tyrant' and I'm an ATS-aholic
