.....that 'modern, industralized society' just has too much time on our hands?????

To reflect and reflect and reflect to the point where it has been almost like trying to get blood from a stone?

You know, years ago, it took damn near every waking hour just to make enough to provide food, clothing and shelter....you know - the essentials.

Hell, if you could do that - you were doing OK!

Life was good!!!!!

So - what's up, do you suppose, with this society?

Have we just become just so damned bored and complacent and brain-washed by a TV 'life-style' (sponsored by manufacturers whom seem to insist at our every turn that whatever it is that we have, materially....is never enough???) that we ACTUALLY confuse all this crap with reality?????

You think????

So now, in comparison, we are forever feeling ourselves 'short-changed', as it were?

Never, EVER able to just.....quite....measure up - you know?

And this is based on....what?

"What" - I tell you is a very sophisticated form of advertising. The 'advertising' which constantly 'sent the message' that whoever you are - will newver, ever BE enough - therefore, you need to subscribe to this so and so 'ideal' American Lifestyle to just be - afterall - what is just human nature.....to have a sense of just simple 'belonging."

Only the advertisers which bombard our lives damn near 24/7 have tapped into this.

Ahhhhh - quite sophisticated.

No longer are advertisements just trying to sell us a product anymore, in recent times.....rather they have been sophisticated enough to try and tap into our very basic, human nature....that is - a sense of belonging.

.....and in order to 'belong' - perhaps, some/most of us fed into their quite cunning and sophisticated maneuvers fricking hook, line & sinker...you know?

Can I get a witness??????????

So, now - here we sit.

Maybe taken because we were none the wiser BEFORE - but hey - not anymore....you know?

(Anyone follow me here?????????)

Truthfully,
Tbt, I think we are a brainwashed society....mostly from the news that we watch everyday. People do not think for themselves and succomb to fear about what they think others are saying...as on the news. The news may report one thing, when in actuality, a different thing happened.

perhaps it's because our society chases after all the wrong things: money, possessions, fame, and pleasure and everyone has something to sell you. supply and demand. people are looking for happiness. the Declaration of Independence says the right to pursue happiness is unalienable, but most people can't find happiness because they look for it in the wrong place.

grace and peace

>> Only the advertisers which bombard our lives damn near 24/7 have tapped into this.

We've talked about this before, this complaint of yours against materialistic advertising. Just change the CHANNEL 😀 and you'll be fine. Look! If I have to sell Peanut butter, I WILL make an ad where a man can get a date with a sexy girl by eating my peanut butter. I have to sell my product and I will do EVERYTHING it takes, whether its funny or serious or materialistic. I dont care what it is! To sell MATERIALS, you have to have a MATERIALISTIC approach. Makes sense, right TbT? Or does it not?

I for one love some ads. A few days ago I was remembering the funny Guinness Shakespear commercial on Youtube and went to find it. That "thats the money you could save with Gieco" are too cute. So yea. Dont worry about ads. Just change the channel 😀

>> that we ACTUALLY confuse all this crap with reality?????

Exactly what is the reality you're talking about? Look around. Some people are happy. Some are not. Its fine. No one or atleast, not everyone is "confusing all this crap with reality". It only appears that way to you.

>> .....and in order to 'belong' - perhaps, some/most of us fed into their quite cunning and sophisticated maneuvers fricking hook, line & sinker...you know?

Well they got you, I can see. They got you riled up enough. Just change the channel.
