"Being relevant to current American advertising
objectives is to be irrelevant to the broader aim of the breathing, thinking
and living." - Carolyn Gale McGovern-Bowen
"In giving commercial speech constitutional
protection, we are not just giving consumers information about price,
quality, maker, and warranties. Advertising
disguised as entertainment is the most effective method of luring victims.
To say that commercial speech merely
allows buyers and sellers to exchange information in a free market transaction
seems utterly naive, if not downright disingenuous.
The "culture" of television has largely replaced
community and family life, cultural pursuits, and reading." - Donald O.

AC spark plugs and Wright Aeronautical before his solo flight

Celebrity edorsements help blur the line
between entertainment and consumption while subconsciously and emotionally

"Large-scale advertising is one of the main factors
in American society that creates and maintains a peculiar form of narcissism
ideally suited to consumerism.
As such, it creates artificial needs
within people that directly conflict with their capacity to form a satisfying
and sustainable relationship with the natural world." - Mary Gomes and Allen
Advertisers need you.

advertising to children would cut the national obesity rate by as much as 18%,

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 that they will give 10
times as much milk as they would naturally.
Their calves are carted off

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 Life - a
rational 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 Life 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 cooperation. Cooperation 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.
