Many VC posters and visitors have likely viewed the arguments raging across the boards recently and many have also likely noticed forum activity slowing to a crawl. So either the regulars here can get it together and interact in a productive fashion, or we could just steer clear of each other. We shouldn't be engaging w/each other is there is nothing positive to be gained from it and we shouldn't be discouraging posters, especially new ones from expressing themselves or bringing their perspectives to the table. This does not give a green light for trollish behavior, that should still be confronted. But if posters are expressing their legitimate opinions or sharing their truths (even if they are uncomfortable for us to admit) they should have that right and expect from us decent interaction or no interaction at all.... we dont have the right to even attempt to stifle others voices here.

Please dont post links to other media here.... if you have media to share, I encourage you to start your own threads and I hope posters will show yours the same respect. Please keep these threads on-topic through discussion of the media itself and the topics addressed therein.....

With that said, Im going to try and offer forth some media options here that seems as though it should find a receptive audience on these forums. I have opened two windows so I can drop both of these threads (one for online "print" or "readable" media, and another for film or "watchable" viewing) at the same time, so the text up to this point in the posts will be the same, below will be a brief explanation of the media itself:

Time Samplers is an excellent, illustrated resource for exploring various conspiracy theories and etc. while still being entertained. This online comic has amazing artwork and much of it's content is based on impeccable researched detail, all the while still providing the entertainment value of a world-class graphic novel. Not sure how many issues have been published, last I heard they were searching for investors to complete more, but if you want an eye-opening vehicle to explore these themes, the folks at Paranoid American have made much of the material available online, for free. Here is a short yt video which offers deeper explanation of the series -

And here are the links to the online issues, a clean layout and easy to read -

A few weeks back, I engaged in a brief discussion here in the forums regarding DC comics revealing that a number of the founding fathers were actually into satanism. It was already known back then to varying degrees, but even now Im surprised/not surprised that DC would touch the topic (to be fair, this was in the late 80s/early 90s). I looked for a few examples online but couldn't find them. Then while randomly watching this video, there they were @18:55....... (Check the later story writers t-shirt design @18:25 for a clue)
The video also touches on other subjects we can discuss here such as idol worship and other problematic imagery. Im blown away by just how far ahead of the curve King Kirby was in his comprehension of complex, cutting edge scientific theories and how adept he was at translating them into a format younger people and those with little to no knowledge of these concepts could grasp.
