Poison & Addiction

 

Poison

Advertising is a primetime player for FEMA. Marketing is a powerful tool to improve a company’s pressence and bottom line. Its message affects children and adolescents. who measure themselves according to them.

Due to their undue influence on children, advertisements are regulated everywhere except the United States. In Europe, where a more child friendly environment exists, advertisements directed at children are banned or severely curtailed. What a refreshing attitude.

In America Children are targets of advertisers because children are defenseless.  For Corporate America, children represent untold billions of dollars in future earnings.

 

Is it a coincidence that American children are significantly more unhealthy than their European counterparts?

 

The minds of children in America are targeted 24/7. They are bombarded with thousands of ads, via  radio, television, billboards, the internet and magazines, not to mention the logos of sponsors in sports arenas.

Non-nutritious food, violent movies and games, delusional body images, sexual exploitation and alcohol are some of the products placed in front of our children’s eyes. This exposure is partly responsible not only for the explosive increase in childhood and adolescent obesity, but also for the rise in cigarette and alcohol abuse among teens.

 

Alcohol demonstrates the power of CorporateAmerica.  While the use of marijuana, cocaine and heroine has declined somewhat, there has been a dramatic rise in the use of alcohol.

 

 

Underage drinking is an insidious problem that ranks with obesity as a national threat. Alcohol is now the drug of choice at high school parties and after-school events.

 

The alcohol and spirit industry are self-regulated entities. They have all agreed to “voluntarily ban” the advertising of hard liquor for the latter part of the twentieth century.

Forced to deal with the number of declining addicts in the 21st century, they ended their ban. Since then, alcohol advertising has steadily increased.

 

Hard liquor commercials, which were first only aired on cable channels, are now on network shows, albeit after 9PM.  Tobacco products are another example of the power of advertisers to cause unhealthiness and their unwillingness to do what is right for America. Once tobacco companies were forced to eliminate advertisements and other exposure in the media, they lost many of their addicts.

As a result, tobacco companies have turned to new methods to keep and attract new ones. First by altering its product with more nicotine to keep those that still smoke and secondly by designing new sleek cigarette boxes, draped in black to look like perfume (Camel no. 9), in order to attract new girls to their poisons.

While this may seem like the exception rather than the rule, it is not. Unethical, deceptive practices are the norm in business, especially the business of poisons.

In the world of business and entertainment, profits and earnings are all that matter. The interests that promote unhealthiness makes up the fabric of American society. Their products and the manner in which they are marketed, advertised and presented drive the economic engine of our once great country.  And that is why it is impossible to have those interests reverse their course.

Targets for Addiction

Americans are an idealistic and freedom loving people. They display a willingness for self-sacrifice and believe in an overall greater good. Their hearts are filled with hope for a better future.  They share, as every generation before them has, a belief that if they can provide a better life for their children, than their purpose here on earth will not have been in vain.

 

Americans are also a naive group and prefer trust to cynicism. This makes them especially vulnerable to the sophisticated addictive techniques of Corporate America. Their addictive messages are delivered by the media, which thus far, has not been held responsible for any of society’s ills.America is a nation addicted to drugs. This addictions come in many forms. Americans rely on drugs to alter mood, create the sensation of pleasure and dull the effects of pain.

 

Americans are unwilling or unable to cope with discomfort and demand quick fixes to remedy it. Physicians are thus forced to prescribe painkilling, mood altering and sexual performance drugs  that patients demand.

Repeated or chronic use of painkillers and mood altering drugs create problems including addiction. Doctors must then prescribe more drugs to deal with these effects.

 

Correcting bad habits are personal matters, just as quitting  cigarettes, going on the wagon or cold-turkey are personal choices. But bad habits gratify an urge and temporarily makes the user feel good while withdrawl causes discomfort and pain that in the long term, is good.

Tobacco companies, alcohol distillers and pushers aren’t about to help addicts overcome their addictions by removing the discomfort, in fact they try to increase the causative agent.

The powers that foster and benefit from unhealthy behavior are not about to relinquish their gains. They will continue to manufacture, distribute and advertise harmful and unhealthy products and practices until they are forced not to.

 

Unlike free speech, which is a protected right under the First Amendment, advertisements can be banned when there is a public health risk such as that posed by cigarettes, alcohol and junk food.

 

America’s children are its sacrificial lambs. Instead of slaughter, they are led into living unhealthy lives and provide huge profits for the beneficiaries of unhealthiness.  Served up to the profiteers of poison much as Handsel and Gretel were ‘fattened up’ for the wicked witch of the forest.

Our children are being prepared for a life where they are dependent on the drugs of the pharmaceutical industry, the miracle diets of the nutritional charlatans and the surgeries of brilliant doctors and world-class hospitals.

Children are especially vulnerable when the manipulators are armed with the power and seduction of addiction. They are defenseless against these practices.

Children and young adults have been manipulated into poor behavior by talented men and women skilled in the art of psychological programming. This includes the many scientists who work for advertising and marketing companies.

 

The armamentarium of the corporate addiction team includes a highly charged arsenal of visual images and sensory data.  This seductiveness of media is linked to compounds that stimulate specific and well studied, bliss receptors in the hypothalamus of the brain.

 

 

Most advertisements and marketing programs are targeted to specific demographics. They know their target audience and prepare accordingly.

They are coordinated and directed by a division of corporate psychologists and social engineers who have been thoroughly trained in the art of addiction, much as interrogators are trained in the terrors of torture.

These manipulators of the mind know what works best and how best to induce addictions, especially to children.

 

This explains how America’s wealth has been transfered to the shareholders who own the businesses manages and run by FEMA, PIMP and PIG.

 

These conglomerates are responsible for instilling illness in kids, overtreating adults and being derelict in overseeing our nation’s health.

They have so demoralized a nation that we don’t even speak of reducing our reliance on drugs and surgeries. They have made disease our greatest enemy.

 

The freedom CorporateAmerica was given to addict people to their products is the root cause of unhealthiness. This freedom reveals more about our laws and the impotence of doctors in establishing policies, than it does about the frailty and weaknesses of human beings.

 

 

 

Addiction Protocols

Americans have been tricked and manipulated into developing addictions. They have been deceived and exploited. They have been transformed from a practical and independent people into a compulsive and obsessive one. A people who view consumerism as the focal point in life. Consumerism, the engine behind our strong economy and the fuel that drives The American Epidemic.

 

Addicted Americans are the sacrificial lambs that society has served up to the god of business, high profits.

 

Americans have been duped into making poor lifestyle choices. It is their poor choices that have caused the malaise and selfish behavior seen in today’s children and young adults. They and their future health care costs are the price we now pay for unhealthy food, inactivity and leisure

One of the contentions of this book is that together with the inactivity it necessitates, corporate behavior is the real force behind addictions.

Unhealthy Americans have been programmed to make those unhealthy choices because unhealthiness is good for their businesses. Corporate behavior takes advantage of this system.

 

Addictions reduce the ability to resist impulses.

 

To CorporateAmerica children are just young, compliant consumers. Their scientists and researchers analyze their brains and subject them to sophisticated wave scans for the purpose of discovering weaknesses and frailties.

After reviewing their studies, their products are presented to corporate executives and orchestrated for the purpose of inducing addiction.

Most advertisements and marketing programs are targeted to specific demographics. They know their target audience and prepare accordingly.

They are coordinated and directed by a division of corporate psychologists and social engineers who have been thoroughly trained in the art of addiction, much as interrogators are trained in the terrors of torture.

These manipulators of the mind know what works best and how best to induce addictions, especially to children.
