If you are genuinely taking the beverage's claim that "for centuries, cults and governments have used juice to subdue and conform the masses", then
you need to re-evaluate your approach to conspiracy theory.
it's not true. it's a joke. the slogan on the juice can is not a revelation of the hidden truth of the Powers that Be; it's marketing. and cheap,
tawdry marketing at that.
there are numerous posters on this thread who seem convinced that the forces manipulating the governments and economies of the world (and these forces
do exist) have taken to advertising on soda cans.
i do believe that political and geopolitical circumstances are manipulated by powers greater than those elected by the people. but these powers are
subtle; they do not advertise, and they would not benefit from advertisement. the whole of their power depends on silence and secrecy.
not every overt mention of a shadow government should be considered to legitimize the rest of the information attached to it. and not every jagged
line should be (as in the post directly above mine) interpreted as a Hebraic numeral.
are there hidden semiotic meanings to important elements of our culture? of course; there are many of them, in every conceivable medium. but the
organizations and entities that use these symbols do not do so haphazardly or inelegantly. they are reserved for things of far greater import than
soda cans, and conceal far greater depths of meaning than references to temporal control through juice, or context-free references to a number in the
we need to direct our attention to more important matters than advertisements which openly and deliberately court the armchair conspiracy theorist
demographic, with vague references to the NWO or related topics.
our oppressors would seem to have so thoroughly deceived so many of us that even those who would question the system and find truth for themselves
cannot distinguish between advertising and reality.
