Bageant: We've Let Corporations & Media Rob Our Souls - It's Time to Do Something Meaningful


www.alternet.org

The most chilling accomplishment of American capitalist culture is that we have commodified our own consciousness. (The following text is drawn from a series of recent speeches delivered by Joe Bageant, including the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago.)

I just returned from several months in Central America. And the day I returned I had iguana eggs for breakfast, airline pretzels for lunch and a $7 shot of Jack Daniels for dinner at the Houston Airport, where I spent two hours listening to a Christian religious fanatic tell about Obama running a worldwide child porn ring out of the White House. Entering the country shoeless through airport homeland security, holding up my pants because they don't let old men wear suspenders through security, well, I knew I was back home in the land of the free.

Anyway, here I am with you good people asking myself the first logical question: What the hell is a redneck writer supposed to say to a prestigious school of psychology? Why of all places am I here? It is intimidating as hell. But as Janna Henning and Sharrod Taylor here have reassured me that all I need to do is talk about is what I write about. And what I write about is Americans, and why we think and behave the way we so. To do that here today I am forced to talk about three things -- corporations, television and human spirituality.

We can't let the occult-world government redefine our words, take away our freedoms, or take away our children (let alone our property & income). They don't just want our hearts and mind, they want our souls.

The majority of TV programs, which are sponsored & funded by corporations (which are also government-controlled entities) have taken people on a ride of deception; They've managed to suck people into their matrix of evil.

America isn't just the land of the brave. It's 1 of many slave-plantations of debtors. Let's break through the matrix, and take back our freedoms! The answer to 1984 is F* the bankers & their government!
