"Being relevant to current American advertising
objectives is to be irrelevant to the broader aim of the breathing, thinking
and living." - Carolyn Gale McGovern-Bowen
"In giving commercial speech constitutional
protection, we are not just giving consumers information about price,
quality, maker, and warranties. To say that commercial speech merely allows
buyers and sellers to exchange information in a free market transaction seems
utterly naive, if not downright disingenuous. The "culture" of television has
largely replaced community and family life, cultural pursuits, and reading." -
Donald O. Mayer
"Large-scale advertising is one of the main factors
in American society that creates and maintains a peculiar form of narcissism
ideally suited to consumerism. As such, it creates artificial needs within
people that directly conflict with their capacity to form a satisfying and
sustainable relationship with the natural world." - Mary Gomes and Allen Kanner
As the advertisers need to you that you will only
attain that hip sophistication by using their products they push the envelope
of moral acceptability in an
attempt to be "edgy." Many times advertisers take advantage of
human nature to the target audience
that their products will somehow enhance the victim/target's sexuality.
Klein* advertising campaign featuring images by photographer Stephen Meisel* is
an example. Adolescent models were photographed in various stages of undress,
poised to offer both sexual pleasures and
the fantasy of sexual availability.
Pornography condemned Calvin Klein's earlier suggestive advertisements with
an adolescent Brooke Shields. Unfortunately any complaints about the latest
campaign were completely stifled by the corporate
media propaganda machine. American morals have not declined to the point that the
latest advertising campaign was not offensive to the vast
majority of Americans. It is simply that those American voices
have been effectively muzzled by
the corporate elite
that controls the media.
Nicholas de Gunzburg*, the "fur and fabric
editor" of Vogue magazine was Calvin Klein's mentor. Calvin Klein's key
partner in his initial years was fellow entrepreneur Barry Schwartz*.
The Guess company, founded by the Marciano* brothers who share control
of the firm with the Nakash* family, followed the same advertising strategy to
sell jeans as Calvin Klein.
Media Watch called for a boycott of
Guess, charging that its ads demean women, integrating
fair advertising and government bodies
"If you're in government, you can lie to your
heart's content so long as the lie is intended to advance your agenda." -
Jonathan Chait Most dairy cows live miserable lives in
over crowded barren dirt lots.
Dairy cows are artificially inseminated
annually because they do not produce milk without pregnancies.
cows are pumped full of hormones, including
bovine growth hormones, so that they will give 10
times as much milk as they would naturally.
Their calves are carted off
to veal crates.
At about age 5 'happy' cows are turned into hamburgers.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, PETA, filed a law suit
that stated that the California Milk Advisory Board, a State of California
governmental agency, had falsely advertised conditions under which dairy cattle
live in the "happy cows" advertising campaign.

This web site is not a commercial web site and
is presented for educational purposes only.
This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has
been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their
agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race.
Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious
practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This
web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the
Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of
faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in
which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not
occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values have
declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
