“Through ignorance of what is good and bad, the life of men is greatly perplexed.” – Cicero 45 BC in De Finibus Bonorum Et Malorum (On The Ends of Good and Evil)
You know the drill; you are subjected to it numerous times every day, whenever you meet a total stranger like the sales clerk at a shop, the cashier or the waiter at the restaurant. Of course, the expectation by the utterer of such clichés is, if any at all, that you say something, like at least: “I’m o.k.” or better. “I’m doing Great” is just about the most abundant “social lie” in America and we are all co-conspirators in the scheme. Should you be so naïve as to actually believe that a person unknown to you is the least bit interested in your mental or physical state of being, you will be the first witness to your mistake in real time. If you are courageous enough to say how you really feel, such as “terrible” – the social interaction is abruptly aborted and you’ll find that the recipient of your vocal emission is running for shelter.
We liken to call such empty phrases “opening a conversation”. A question begs for an answer, while a mere “Hello” does not prompt a response. However, is it ethical conduct to ask a question whose answer is indifferent to you whatever it may be? “How‘re you doing?”– although a question, has devolved to a mere open-ended substitute for “Hello” where an answer is not expected and – if one is given – the receiver may be too perplexed to deal with it.
The socially naturalized convention to begin a new relationship with a lie, or at least the empty promise to care while being apathetic, has not been subject to question one’s honesty – but why not, because everyone is doing it, is it o.k.?
Or – because it is not important it is irrelevant?
The answer is this: in normal times, this may have evaded our attention and we may not have been aware of it, but these are not normal times. The statistics say it loud and clear, the majority of Americans are struggling to make ends meet, and – yes – they don’t “feel just great”, they feel miserable. Now, if they say how they really feel they are being chastised by social isolation, but lying by pretending to “feel just great” may lead the way into depression.
There has been a lot of acrimony about the cancerous corruption on Capitol Hill, the White House, the government agencies, Wall Street controlling corporations and the media, but there is no remedy in sight – why? Realizing that the social system pyramid – where one-on-one contacts are made – is grounded on deception, should we be surprised when the entire pyramid is erected on lies and the better liars occupy the higher levels? That is a logical consequence, isn’t it? A healthy plant does not grow from a contaminated soil.
Another systemic derelict of American morality is illustrated by the “I’m doing great” example: the compulsive pressure to only communicate the positive, even if that means to omit the facts; the addressee is manipulated into perceiving a bad thing as good. This mass indoctrination is so native in American culture that the majority of people don’t even realize it anymore; for example, Facebook offers you a “Like” button only, but the “Dislike” option is conspicuously absent. The Indexes are a classic illustration of institutionalized deception: inflation, unemployment and stock market numbers are constantly laundered to keep the sheeple calm. It may seem compassionate to verbally bend a really bad day into “I’m doing great”– on a personal basis, but what about if your government and all its minions are doing exactly that to you?
You guessed right, it is turning the masses into sheeple by design and it is being practiced and used by the current administration in a desperate bid to win re-election during a dismal economy. For example, in early April, the U.S. credit rating was downgraded from AA+ to AA by the Egan Jones Agency1 to the chagrin of president Obama, who decided unilaterally that you, the American sheeple, are unfit to handle bad news and must be protected from such. Thus, he simply used the White House Press Briefing to gag the media by stating that: “To the American people, this critical event should be kept in the category of a ‘non-story’, so as not to confuse and/or shock them.”2 Unsurprisingly, the U.S. media, including their most important television networks and major newspapers, dutifully followed the directives of the Obama regime and failed to uniformly inform the American people of this pretty significant affair.
Was this an isolated event of spoon-feeding the American consumer with “news” to protect their fragile psyche? Of course not; using the media to manipulate the masses is systemic. What this demonstrates is how the government is now so emboldened that it doesn’t even hide the censorship anymore. Here are a few current events that Big Brother has decided could be destabilizing your sheeple nature3: Fukushima related radioactivity in the U.S.; the real cost of Obamacare; HAARP4; chemtrails5; FEMA camps6;vaccine failures7; GMO deception by FDA, USDA, Monsanto et al.8; the real reason for water fluoridation is mass mind control, not the pretended caries prevention.9
It follows the screenplay when anyone who ventures to shed the media corset is being denigrated “a conspiracy theorist” – on the mere ground that the mass media colluded to ignore coverage. All information you can access from foreign media is “inaccurate” and “biased” if it is not portraying the U.S. in a positive light, and there is a plethora of attempts pending to censor the internet under the guise of Homeland Security. What’s wrong with the U.S. media predigesting the “news” for you, breaking it down into easy-to-swallow hors d’œuvres, so you can relax in front of the TV while downing your GMO Frito Lay’s with an HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) laden soft drink? Well, you see, while you are captivated by trivia, you don’t have time to witness how the government is tacitly doing away with the Bill of Rights10, the Constitution, and misconstrues the law while intimidating the Supreme Court11 and any non-complicit organizations, domestic and abroad. After Obama ascertained that the sheeple were busy shopping and watching New Year’s fireworks, he tacitly signed the NDAA (aka Indefinite Detention of Americans Act) into law with impunity; what the media deemed “a non-event”. He got inspired to pull out all stops by granting himself unprecedented power to control everything about your life: your food, water, energy, health, mobility and housing – via the Executive Order – National Defense Resources Preparedness12. This means that the U.S. government now claims the power to simply raid your farm and, at gunpoint, demand all your crops, seeds, livestock and farm equipment.
Meanwhile, America’s obsession with modifying every thought-provoking term by morphing it into an unequivocally assenting concept, it becomes a no-brainer in a literal sense – because if it is already acquiescent, there is nothing to fix. Although this is a standard operating procedure in America, it is morally wrong when it is done to deceive you. Unfortunately, you are a victim of this practice in everything you do; for example, the food industry laundered MSG (Monosodium Glutamate) into “spices”, “flavors” and many other euphemisms on ingredient labels. The stigmatized high fructose corn syrup is now transformed into “corn sugar”. The intent is translucent; you must associate the terms with something desirable. But it gets a lot murkier when it comes to GMO foods, because no one, so far, has synthesized a term with an optimistic connotation. The FDA has allowed GMO foods to anonymously inundate the U.S. market. Although it appears in almost every product on the supermarket shelves, you will not find such on any food label. So the government’s mantra is: If it would make the consumer think about it, just omit it! The result is that trying to stay clear of GMO foods in the U.S. is a futile attempt; all processed foods in supermarkets are either soy or corn based. If it doesn’t explicitly say “certified organic” – it is GMO.
If you don’t spot either ingredient on the label, you’ll find canola, cottonseed or soy oil, and/or HFCS, which is all GMO. Even in the meat section you are out of luck, as all commercial animals are fed GMO corn.
Milk is another notorious classic of deception. The U.S. dairy industry has been promoting processed milk as an essential health food for children for years13, falsely claiming it promotes healthy bones. How is the “I feel great” ruse applied here? They magically convey the nutritional value of raw milk and make you believe these benefits apply to the actual centrifuged, heat treated and synthetic growth hormone “rBGH” laden product that is the root cause of lactose intolerance and other ill-health issues. So they take the data from a natural product called milk and pretend – in light of a multibillion-dollar business – their toxic gunk is a healthy product that is still called milk14. The Weston A. Price Foundation is reporting a study on calves fed on raw milk and on pasteurized milk. While the group fed on raw milk thrived, the calves fed on processed milk either died or ended the study sick15.
The U.S. prides itself for having developed the most efficient and cost effective agriculture in the world – which gives cause to patriotic boasting by the no-brainer sheeple who thrive on the spoon-fed news concocted by the media. For the others who don’t fuel their brain on the U.S. media, their findings are more sobering: the “faster, bigger, and cheaper” myopic monoculture approach has proven costly, destructive and unsustainable with 444,000 tons of pesticide use per year, which is equal to 3 lbs per person. It delivers vapid tasting, nutrient deprived, toxin-laden produce for transportation and shelf-life, the consumer health is irrelevant16. The “cheap” U.S. meat comes to you only by complete ignorance of fair animal treatment17, and what the sheeple consume as cheap meat will haunt them later in health care.
The “I feel great” paradigm makes the $1 burger a sheeple’s no-brainer in the literal sense, but any brain activity detached from media advertising hype exposes the delusion: the cost is not what you pay at the counter, but what we pay as a social system for exploiting resources and contaminating our planet.
Now, what makes you truly “feel great”? Nutrition that your body recognizes as food. What is that and how do you find it? Consider food that nature provided for thousands of years before the Wall Street driven food industry perverted our food supplies. Get it from your local farmer and buy what’s in season, there are nutritional reasons why produce grows in different seasons. Consider that when you buy permaculture produce, you’ll pay only once. When you opt for make-believe produce from the supermarket, you’ll pay first at the checkout, second at the supplement store, and eventually at the pharmacy.
Finally, think about the ultimate life changing benefit; you will be able to honestly say, “I’m doing great” – while you really mean it!
