hello.

anything you see on T.V. is for profit, if it is on T.V. it is meant to make money. that includes news, documentaries, movies, independent filmage. anything on network T.V. has an agenda behind it and is meant to benifit the provider and never the viewer. the viewer is stimulated by impulsive visuals and acoustics meant to arrouse the viewer into enjoying the program being viewed. the longer and more often the program is viewed the more that station can profit from advertisement.

i used to work at an advertising agency. a commercial campaign consisting of 1 minute T.V. spots can cost as much as $30,000,000 to produce and cost triple that ammount, almost $1,000,000,000 to air over the course of six month period. advertising agencies specialize in selling products through impulsive attraction or subliminal responses. these agencies have entire departments dedicated to making womens' breasts larger in order to sell Viagra, and make mens' crotches stick out more to sell lipstick.

people have adopted the fatal idea that they can trust what they hear on T.V.. the truth is that you can not trust anything created in the commercial/industrial sector to benifit yourself over itself. this includes pharmaceuticals, food produce, and any other corporation/business class with a profit margin.

a wise man once told me "there is nothing free in life" and this holds true today.
if you believe that your medicine is meant to heal you, your wrong, it is meant to prognose your illness not cure, how would a company that makes medication profit if everyone is healthy?

if you believe that the food you pay to eat will satisfy you nutritionally and is safe to eat, your wrong, your food lacks most if not all nutrition, if you believe a food producing company is going to sacrafice profit in order to comply with food saftey inspections and regulations within its production facilities, your stupid or poor.

if you believe that your clothe companies with brand names do not support terrorism or inhummane treatment of its employies, your wrong, if you look at your tags you will see that your clothes are made in the poorest countries where a salary is almost useless because of incredible inflation or complete lack of a consumer market (meaning there is nothing to buy with your salary, not even food.).

if you believe your government is elected, and positions are held by honorable, publically interested, selfless individuals, who legislate according to law and for the benefit of the public, your wrong. The government is a corporate run institution, legislative power is bought and sold by industrial enterprises, sometimes entire markets (competing corporations) control the same seats in either the house or senate with a common initiative that is to continue their crimes under the blanket of the legal system.

if you think you can live a morally sound life in todays society, your wrong, todays society is controlled and manipulated by the industrial military technological complex through media/music, network television, .com's, .orgs, .nets, and even prints/books/magazines.

if you believe anything given to you by this industrial military tecnological system will benefit you over itself then you are naive and wrong, wake up now...

and they won't come and hunt me down, they don't have black helicopters and invisiblity cloaks, they don't need them, they are smart and they have much more effective ways of destroying someone without killing them.

they make up a story for you or twist facts out of context, and then they make you out to be insane, they turn those closest to you away from you, they destroy your dignity, and they do it through media. they can even attack on an individual level now with Facebook and Twitter, they can twist reality any way they want, because they control reality, they have the public's complete trust through seduction, they can fabricate an entire event and you would probally believe it because it states "LIVE" on the top right corner. they are smart, but intelligence is still limited. there are some of us who are not blinded by this affair between the american public and degrading capitalism.

An excellent, well constructed post,


You nailed most of the issues I've woken up to slowly over the last few years.

Now that I have, I find myself in the position of being looked at as 'cuckoo' at times by peers for even considering such thoughts!
They still believe 'if its on tv, its real', if its advertised on tv or magazines, they'll dieee if they can't get it (Usually straight away, on credit!).
It really is a very isolating path to take ,especially where I live ( a small country town in outback Oz!!).
But once you awaken there is no going back.....
S&F

It is quite a funny story to be honest, everyone was so excited when TV's were first introduced, and it has served a good source of entertainment and information other than newspapers and peer-talking and that's why it gained a lot of popularity and trust. Nowadays, corporations have realized its powerful effect on the people, and they are enjoying the naivety that TV's were once thought to be, and they took control over it in order to scare people, limit their consciousness and self-thinking abilities by providing them 'news' and not opinions, making them dumb and vibrating on very low levels of human frequency by watching reality shows that are disturbing the synapses process in the brain, and not to mention the horrific results of advertising:

" Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy # we don't need. " (Fight Club)

Luckily humanity is brighter than that. Awakening process is already on the way!

S&F.

Thanks for sharing your inside information learned while working at an ad agency. It must have been quite a learning experience for you.

I think most people who visit ATS understand this somewhat. Instead of comercials inbetween threads, we get the commercials at the top of the page in a banner that change, depending on the topic in a thread, or what a person types. It even happens here!

I made my mind up a long time ago to never buy anything that I see advertised on television at the grocery store. People who come to my house are surprised to see that I don't have cereals, chips, and soda that most people fill their cabinents with.

Want a snack at my house? Here, have an apple!

All this coming from the guy on the computer made in a Chinese sweat shop by some 4 year old kid...

Better throw it away.

While you're at it, give away your house too...the bricks were made by malnourished Asians on 19th Century wages.

You've obviously already gotten rid of your clothes, since you despise their origins too.

Shall we keep an eye out for a naked homeless guy eating leaves any time soon? Or are you here to just tell us about all these bad things and not do anything about it?

Not sure who made my computer...but at least they were paid for their work.

Not sure who placed the bricks on my home, although I am 99.9% sure it was a Mexican who made good money to do it.

All clothing is not made cheap and I know this to be fact as I worked in Liquidation for years. You can't buy any clothing from China that is cheap. Even in the poorer countries have their competitive wages. Call a company lately? You will talk to someone who cannot hardly speak your language and they still get paid. Many over seas have jobs now....didn't ya hear?

No need to eat leaves, there are plenty of seeds to plant and crops to nourish with your own hands rather than someone else's with pesticides and everything else they throw on our food. Poison anyone??

I would say many are waking up to a society driven by profit instead of humanities needs. Won't be long and we will have overcome this and be on our way to a better society. There is always hope anyway.

The specifics of what I said isn't the point here.

My point was that too many seem to enjoy hating on how unbalanced society is, yet do nothing about it.

Many do too...I should add, but many don't and I find that quite hypocritical...

That was the point I was making, albeit poorly I suppose.

Ha! I know what you were doing but my seriousness took over. Not enough coffee just yet.


As far as hating on society and not doing anything. What would be the first step in changing the society in your opinion? I ask in all seriousness.

For me, I am surrounded by people who go with the flow and who do not care to stop watching TV, to put away the pc, buy smart in regards to humanity, leave the gas powered vehicle at home, and so on... they look at me (family and friends) like I am crazy when I mention abandoning the life style they love so much. Within my family and group I find myself alone.


I do not like sending my kids to school to learn stuff "they" want them to learn. I do not like learning something to make "them" more money in regards to a job while I get a tiny portion that won't even pay for my kids clothes. I do not like being in a society where the biggest and best means you are successful. I do not like the fact TPTB can do whatever they want in regards to ELE and not have any remorse whatsoever for humanity. I hate war...if two people fight then they are both wrong in my opinion. I could go on and on but I think you get my point.

Where in your opinion does one begin to change society to fit a dream world where we all love and help one another instead of the opposite?

I was raised on a farm and was not involved in society too much because back then my area was still considered "country" and we lived off the land, grew crops and ate our own food. We lived simple and wore hand me downs and looked fantastic. We ate dinner every night at the table with family and talked of life's mysteries over dinner. It was nice compared to now. It has only been 25 years and our society has changed dramatically. What now? I feel as though I am stuck with no where to go and no one on my side who is willing to take the lesser life for a more fulfilling life. Ya know??

Good post OP. S&F. Hope you don't mind if I e-mail this to a few people who won't come to this site.



and they won't come and hunt me down, they don't have black helicopters and invisiblity cloaks, they don't need them, they are smart and they have much more effective ways of destroying someone without killing them.

I do have to split one hair with you though. Are you sure this is what you meant to say? Because they do have them. But the rest of the statement I agree with.

the sad truth is that these fantasy worlds have constructed the real world, all the capital in the world is worth only what we believe it to be worth, therefore it is not based on reality.

which is cheaper and quicker? hunting down a physical person with a squad of black ops in a helicopter, or hacking someones facebook profile and leaking provocative photos to say an employer or spouse? or hacking the local law enforcement network and releasing a warrant for your arrest in relation to a homocide? or changing your bank account statements? or sabotage your credit rating?

you get the point!!! your whole life is online, why do they need to physically come for you when they can destroy everything over the world wide web? cheaper and quicker that way too...

i agree with the overall sentiment of your post but this was a rather dumb comment imho.




if you believe a food producing company is going to sacrafice profit in order to comply with food saftey inspections and regulations within its production facilities, your stupid or poor.


why is someone who believes that by definition poor or stupid

No argument here my friend. I agree with this statement. My question was aimed at this...



they don't have black helicopters and invisiblity cloaks

They do have them. They just aren't necessary in the scenario you're talking about.
