Conditioning through Advertising
I was in the kitchen making dinner, while half-watching an episode of CSI I'd already seen. During an advertisement, I heard this line, "No matter how you see an Army soldier, you have to look up to them." Funny how the line that sets off my fascism alarm is the one my ears actually paid attention to. So, not much to say here, except for the fact that the ad is written to condition you fucking sheep to venerate soldiers and the forces that go to war above all other people in our society. Above all other humans for that matter.
God, I really do wish that we didn't live in a society bent on destroying humanity and the world and forcing society into a highly paranoid and aggressive pack of brainless sheep.
Think on it, please.
