The media feeds us with impressive attack ads, appealing PR ads, and sometimes repulsive propaganda. Even when we agree with what we view, it is vital that we become harshly critical of those who attempt to control our minds. Attack ads can be powerful. They warp the facts and use lies to change how the viewer feels, and to change beliefs. This is a sickening and undemocratic process. In the future, in our complex world it is vital that we be free from manipulation, so we are able to make logical decisions about what is best for us.

Our system has controlled our way of life, and will continue to control it for decades to come. The advertising and marketing strategies in our profit driven system have a big impact on what we want in life, what we tolerate, and what we value. It has had an impact on the desire of people to use prescription drugs excessively, to become overweight, to smoke, to accept an unhealthy lifestyle, and to believe we must continually buy things in order to enjoy life. In addition, television ads pick on the vulnerable. They manipulate children, control the types of toys they want, and make them (and myself) want breakfast cereal that isn't much better than candy.

So, instead of getting what we want, we wind up with the way of life that our system has created for us. Most people are willing to accept a garbage lifestyle, because that's what they're used to, that's what their friends do, and that's what advertising messages subtly pressure everyone to do.

Can we change our system? Our system won't get better if we tear things apart. In spite of major flaws, our system has proven to be better than other systems.

We can improve things by working within the system. We need to take the situation seriously, face the negative information, decide what needs to be done, and then actually do something about it. It's a difficult task. 


Good luck my friend ..and remember: In the year 2010 we will all live forever.
