No More Toxic Trash
One of the most refreshing things about the internet revolution is that it opens people's minds quickly. Most people didn't have a library of knowledge at their fingertips, but now almost everyone does. It's now possible to find out information in a matter of seconds that at one time took hours or even months to track down. Organic medicine is one of the areas that has attracted consumers to doing their own medical research. In some cases it's now possible to learn how to treat health problems faster than going to see a doctor.
The reason organic food and other products have become so popular in the new century is that millions of people have learned they've been misled about health over the years by the powers that be. Many people have simply trusted what TV and their doctors have told them repeatedly. But now it's on record that several of the top pharmaceutical corporations have had to pay multi-billion dollar penalties for either misleading society about their drugs or bribing doctors to prescribe them.
It turns out that a lot of synthetic drugs are dangerous to human health. Thousands of people have died using these commercial drugs that were rushed to market without resolving safety concerns. Some people simply died using pharma drugs improperly. The part about doctors getting bribed by pharma corporations was exposed in a series of court settlements throughout 2012. Doctors were able to pad their high salaries by doing speaking engagements that promoted specific drugs to the medical community, paid for by big pharma. Twisting Greed with Medicine
The psychotic idea of selling dangerous medicine to the masses as if it were candy is one of the core components in understanding how mass mania in slow motion leads to mass murder in slow motion. Of course, corporations will never admit that they are in the business of killing people. Why would a corporation, which is all about money, want to kill its own market? The answer is that killing people in "slow motion" doesn't have the same emotional impact or consequences as killing someone on the spot. It's easier to disguise murder if it happens in slow motion. No one really calls it murder if the effect occured long after the cause.
Another reason that not many people think of corporations that market deadly products as murderers is because that's simply not how it's marketed. Cigarettes have been an exception, but only because tobacco companies are required by law to include a warning on the package. Pharma companies also have to make disclaimers about potentially dangerous side effects, but it's usually announced at a fast pace to the point it sounds ridiculous to take seriously.
The list of products that kill the masses in slow motion is related to the exponential rise in cancer and other health disorders that became more common as the industrial revolution expanded. Prior to the early 1900s, only a small percentage of people died from cancer. Doctors at that time didn't make a lot of money. Throughout the twentieth century society moved increasingly away from organic products, but not by accident. Big biz simply had more money behind it and was able to push organic products off shelves (partly by bribing store owners). Big biz also began to dominate television advertising.
Organic products, including medicine, did not fit the puzzle of money-making because items in the real world were more abundant than synthetic treatments and the real world cannot be patented. Once you patent a synthetic product, you can control its production and supply, which both affect price. If you can grow something useful in your backyard it prevents big biz from making extra stacks of cash.
Pretty soon the entire culture became surrounded by big machines and lots of toxins that wreck the environment and people's health. The rat race to make money and produce the most products became the religion of a materialistic empire in the industrial age. After awhile the earth became covered with toxic trash capable of killing people in slow motion. TV served as the happy family-friendly drug pusher, creating lots of "mania" over products that people didn't really need.
Deep down inside everyone knows that TV is just an idiot box that sits in the living room in case anyone needs to pass the time by watching dots on a screen. But not only is watching hours of TV physically unhealthy since it limits blood circulation, it can also be mentally unhealthy since so many people take it to be their best friend. In just a few decades TV taught people to forget about the real world and pretend that TV is the real world. That way you didn't have to believe in something as a fact until someone mentioned it on TV.
We all also know that not everything on TV is the truth, yet subconsciously, people still perceive the content on TV as their own personal reality. Most people don't equate choosing to watch favorite shows (out of hundreds, yet controlled by a handful of corporations) with falling into a hypnotic trap, even though the technology literally does hypnotize people. Everyone knows how TV makes its money - from commercials, yet that's what people end up paying for when they buy expensive medicine. Pharma companies are able to charge high prices for their drugs - since the masses do not know better that pharma companies spend more money on mass media marketing than on developing new medicine.
The Cure for Greed
The solution to this whole mass mania problem is simple in concept, but very difficult in practice. If you could press a button and turn off corporate greed, the mass murder in slow motion machine would come to a grinding halt and people would live healthier lives. If synthetic drugs did what they were supposed to, the health care industry would be much closer to putting itself out of business. Instead, it's a corporate machine that feeds on greed and mass ignorance. In many ways the public is intimidated to conform to whatever the medical industry says.
The government lets their corporate accomplices get away with putting terrible products on the market, to a degree. Once a products kills enough people, the government usually steps in and bans the product. At one time TV ads could get away with saying "9 out of 10 doctors smoke brand X cigarettes." But after years of research that showed cigarettes killed millions of people in slow motion, the medical community began to cease working as drug pushers with the tobacco biz.
Most credible health experts believe that diet and exercise are the keys to living a healthy life without depending on expensive synthetic corporate drugs. Some people need more care than others, which is why we have hospitals and doctors. When a nutritionist talks about "healthy diet" they usually refer to fruits and vegetables, not burgers and fries. Yet almost everywhere we turn in suburbia and modern cities we see nothing but the same unhealthy corporate fast food restaurants in strip mall after strip mall.
The best way to sidestep mass mania in slow motion is to educate yourself as much as possible about health and the environment. Who you trust is very important. If you trust in those with just commercial motives you may not get the truth. But if you trust in yourself and professionals who address the problems and solutions of mass brainwashing based on greed that has dumbed down our culture, it may help make the world better ... at least in slow motion.
