Mainstream Media is Junk Food for Your Brain
Few people see this memorial on a daily basis, and nobody really cared much about it until the mainstream media decided to manufacture a controversy out of it, intentionally stoking the flames of racial division and civil unrest. Now, literally overnight, the entire country is in an uproar over this innocuous symbol from America’s historical past, demanding that it be immediately torn down and replaced with something less “offensive,” like perhaps a bust of Bruce Jenner turned into a transgender female.
It’s almost as if the whole thing was intentionally planned to rewrite history and possibly even ignite a second Civil War in the process, and the credulous public is eating it right up. Why? The answer is the same as it is for junk food: corporate media propaganda is synthetic “news” manufactured from processed “facts” and contrived, highly-addictive soundbite “additives” that keep the vapid masses constantly coming back for more.
Corporate media junk food “news” is poison for the mind and soul
The corporate media, as hilariously and obviously bogus as it has become these days, is no different from an addictive junk food product like Doritos, Oreos, or Coca-Cola. What makes these fake food products salable has nothing to do with their nutritional content, which is basically zero; it’s the monosodium glutamate (MSG), refined sugar, and artificial flavors that provide that instantaneous flavor “high” to keep consumers enslaved to buying such products, even when they know they’re toxic!
The latest manufactured media controversies are really no different. Artificial elections, fake shootings, crisis actors, and manufactured hashtag campaigns have become the bread and butter of the phony American media machine, which almost always ignores real news like the recent passing of “fast-track” authority by Congress allowing the executive branch to enact treasonous trade agreements like the Trans-Pacific Partnership without oversight.
Instead of reporting on this traitorous dissolution of American sovereignty by our own elected leaders, the corrupt mainstream media is instead feeding the gullible masses the equivalent of a handful of MSG-laced corn chips by raising hell over a historical flag. The “excitotoxin” effect of this intellectual drugging, if you will, is now evident all across social media and in the public conversation as people fight each other over yet another ridiculous non-issue rather than direct their anger at those who instigated it in the first place: the media, the government, and the shadow puppet masters who control what these entities say and do.
It’s a lot like when you know you should eat a salad instead of that enticing doughnut, but you choose the doughnut instead because it’s oh-so-good in the moment. When the less intelligent segments of society are presented with the real facts or even just told to investigate an issue on their own (the salad), they often react with confusion or fury, choosing instead to accept whatever the mainstream media is telling them to say or think (the doughnut).
This lazy approach to living might make you popular with all the other zombie dolts who would rather just float by in their manufactured, programmed, convenience-centered, bag-of-Doritos existences. However, it won’t get you any closer to truth or reality, which is almost always unpopular in the beginning before the illusory house-of-cards reality comes tumbling down into oblivion.
The choice is yours. Will you imbibe on the synthetic reality constantly being dished out by the mainstream media like a box of pink slime McNuggets at the fast food drive-through, or will you opt instead for nutritious, soul-enriching truth, no matter what it costs your social popularity and reputation?
The biblical account in 2 Thessalonians 2 warns about this very thing — that those who reject the truth and revel in lies will be overcome by strong delusion so that they believe even more lies. This sure sounds a lot like the current state of America today, doesn’t it?
