Who’s Minding YOUR Mind??
Ever wonder how certain foods became so popular? Junk foods like Coca-Cola, Oreos and Jell-o are as well-known as bread and butter. Thanks to the media, these “foods” have reached celebrity status. Not only with their visual appeal, but the emotional charge that has seduced our brains (and taste buds!), surpassing any common sense and self-preservation we may have once had. Why did we ever think it was okay to eat foodstuff that barely, if at all, resembles something edible?
There’s good reason we’ve gone a long with their lies and fantasy tales of products that are low-cal, healthy, fun and irresistible. One word, Bernays. Master propagandist for ruthless profiteers, he is the PR legend whose ‘playbook’ continues to manipulate and deceive America and much of the world today.
“By engineering consent as the art of manipulating the masses; the undisciplined and those lacking in intellectual and definite moral principles are vulnerable to unconscious influence and thus susceptible to want things they do not need. The main idea behind engineering of consent is that the public should not be aware of the manipulation taking place." -Edward Bernays
When you begin to question government policies and everything you hear on television you can be sure, You are Waking Up. You can take back control of your thoughts and your life.
Abandon the pursuit of happiness via junk food, unnecessary material possessions and fearful thoughts of others, and you will be free. Free to think for yourself, to create a happy life, and contribute to a healthy world.
