Who wants to join me at Democratic Underground/DU?
#1
Because I'm coming apart.

Ok, now that that's out of the way...

http://www.democraticunderground.com/
1 - Register.
2 - Spread the word.

It's a big, very mainstream, forum. I could use the company...

[Note: On 4/04/09, to increase clarity, I changed the title of this thread from:
"Who wants to join me?"
"Who wants to join me at Democratic Underground/DU?"]

If they allow links back to DPF I'll consider it. Let me know. The mainstream Fora make me a tad uncomfortable sometimes - so off their 'center'. I hate to have to tone-down my righteous indignation and explain everything from first priciples...but can if it'll have an effect.

It seems like a smart move to me Myra. I'm going to be away for a few weeks shortly, but if you still need company when I return please holler and I'll join you.
The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

Who'se asking you to tone it down Peter? Not I. Go forth and agitate I say. People will never be more receptive to the truth than they are right now after witnessing the last few years and having mainstream propaganda diluted by the internet.

Myra, I am already a member of DU and my name there is EPIC1934

Check out the thread on JFK and the Unspeakable that I added lots of posts to. You are right this is a HUGE SITE and can get lots of views. I have also been posting lots of Hudson articles here to try to increase circulation.

What is your name there?

By the way Myra, I had this idea : It would be good if we could let people know about the new Dick Russell book. A few quotes from that last bunker buster of an essay would easily kick this into Amazon top 5,000 and possibly higher.

The other thought was the Evica book. Crime that more people dont know about it. I was thinking in the General Discussion section a nice long thread about C.D. Jackson? A Time-Lifer is always good for the meta-paranoia of the youngsters:listen: as my parakeet used to say!

I dont have time to start these now but will after May 15th.

By the way this site is really good. It is a great mix of naive democrats with some really well read folk. It is easy to underestimate the latter here.

Peter this is where you need to be posting. Makes no sense to only post where you cant win new converts.. AT THE SAME TIME THERE ARE ALMOST NO COMPLETE IDIOTS HERE. This is a just the right hothouse for your consciousness.

I'll do what I can there Nathaniel. Thanks for the suggestions.

I agree with your assessment of the site and the members. Huge site, tons of members. Mostly people who are paying attention and trying to understand what is being done to us. Many are still trying to cling to their idealist view of events, and their belief that we have a two party system and the Democrats are the good guys, but starting to catch on. A significant number have caught on and are posting excellent essays wherein they connect dots:

In the past people let themselves be intimidated by the "conspiracy theorist/tin foil hat" smears. But lately they're refusing to fall into that trap.

Historically the owners/admins have been the problem. They are apparently so terrified of being ridiculed that they promptly locked all threads with hint of independent thought, any insights into the plots that have destroyed our best leaders and institutions and way of life. It seems like the more persistent and bold members there are making inroads however. More and more I see threads, like the ones above, where people are openly discussing the types of patterns we discuss here and the thread is not locked or moved. I would like to think that this is a trend because the forum has such potential.

Hope you post there Peter. Smart people there with increasingly open minds. Fertile ground.

Sampling of enticing threads at DU. Some are locked/archived (not sure why that happens there) and some can be replied to. The threads that I appreciate tend to get locked over there... Anyway, they have a good search mechanism. Many of the good ones are posted as Journals.

Note: You have to be a member there with a number (10?) of replies to existing threads before you can start a new thread.
