Problem: winning 5 yards at the end of the game when we're down 20 points.
It's not going to help. We can all imagine the closing window here of effectiveness. It's really not going to make a big difference to win this debate in public if it's 5 or 10 years from now. Well, maybe 5 and it will make a difference. 10 years, I don't know.
Point is we have a closing window of opportunity to win this debate (in the public mind). That's the point, "in the public mind"! We're not here to win it amongst ourselves. Winning the next 5 yards isn't going to help.
We HAVE won, the intellectual debate, the scientific review, the common sense analysis. Why in the world haven't we won our cause in the public mind?
Stop what your doing! Stop fighting for a 5 yard gain! We've already won that yardage. Our gains have not been respected. At this point, you're just fighting amongst yourselves and the other side isn't listening, if anything, they're laughing and time's running out!
Let's focus on the field, our objectives and the obstacles:
We have inescapable scientific fact leading to suspicion of treachery. It's being ignored, suppressed, even ridiculed (in the public mind). WHY!?
> Lack of official public response (no accountability, risk to those in office).
> Reticence of the media, (media-ocracy). What are the causes of this? Different factions of the media have different reasons.
> Lack of public concern. What are the reasons?
Skipping past the science, let's look at the obstacles for getting this information into the public forum. It's NOT logistic. We HAVE entered this information in the public forum. It's not taking. WHY? That should be the focus of this site, of this movement, of your energy.
Momentum (gaining, dissipating or staying the same? Don't fool yourselves.)
Why is it being ignored? Let me offer some suggestions (and these should be the focus of our analysis)...
> consideration of treachery is an unsettling and risky thing for politicians (professionally), citizens (personally) and apparently for editors and journalists as well.
There is the risk not only that they have missed it but have let it succeed over all these years. There's a BIG motivation for coverup even if suspicions were raised (for politicians, those in pertinent institutions, for citizens who have held fast beliefs or perhaps lost relations in subsequent combat operations).
We're not going to get far until we analyze these factors and determine best strategies for confronting them.
We can raise suspicions, and lose. We can prove our points, and lose. We should regroup and re-think. The focus of our intent should be the public arena beyond the basic logistics towards analysis of the field and our time of action is now.
Let's do some analysis along these lines (above) and prescribe some next steps or alter our next steps in consideration of these factors. I can think of some meaningful and viable approaches. Can you?
(if someone argues again about the pentagon or voice-morphing, I'm going to log off for good and live in the woods).
I really can't tell you how wrong you are, as a group, when you engage in these micro-arguments and micro-positions within the truth movement. You're not only wrong logistically and intellectually, you lower the effectiveness of the group. There are relative limits to what we can know and relative limits to which we should subscribe when speculating or giving perspectives. It's important to strive for clarity and precision but not to the point that it overwhelms or diverts the message or perhaps alienates its members. I've seen it happen here. Ask yourselves why.
Let me state it another way. It's extremely offensive when someone states they know what could have happened and what didn't happen, when I know they can't. It makes me want to log off and ignore you, and I've been fighting this battle for 10 years. So rethink!
The science is done. Refocus.
