Jonathan Chait Most dairy cows live miserable lives in
over crowded barren dirt lots.
Dairy cows are artificially inseminated
annually because they do not produce milk without pregnancies.
cows are pumped full of hormones, including
bovine growth hormones, so they give 10 times as
much milk as they would naturally.
Their calves are carted off to veal
At about age 5 'happy' cows are turned into hamburgers.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, PETA, filed a law suit
that stated that the California Milk Advisory Board, a State of California
governmental agency, had falsely advertised conditions under which
dairy cattle live in the
"happy cows" advertising campaign.
PETA's suit failed on
the grounds that government agencies are exempt from fair advertising

technique widely used by
advertisers, is to raise a weak form of the objections to their message at the
beginning and then to answer with the message they intend to get across.
The purpose of this move is three-fold.
First, even if the
marketer's answer would not rationally pass muster were the receiver of the
message to reflect upon it, this method of framing makes it more likely that
people will accept the message without reflection.
Second, if the
marketer had not raised and then answered the objections, people would likely
encounter the objections later.
As a result, objections would be left
as the stronger signal.
Third, and most importantly for the marketer,
the marketer now gets to frame the debate in terms that bias reaction towards
the outcomes they are after." - Edward Wilson & Wes Unruh
This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern
propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an
international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt
version of reality on the human race.
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason
which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no
church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to
develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit
of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that
has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the
author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in
America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site in no way condones
violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is
already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human
race. The international corporate
cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media
worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is
responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of
self-centered behavior and the destruction
of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation.
Coöperation does not occur at the
point of a gun.
American social mores and values have declined
precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has
garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the
populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which
have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media
psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family
and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
