You see, if a moose was taught to eat moose, then it would be a profitable business cycle. If people were taught to eat people, same thing, it would be an efficient, self-perpetuating process. Well, from sources we find out that some chicken farmers feed their chickens by-products of processed chicken, yes, chickens have been taught to eat chicken.

What does that have to do with our site review today? We want to find out why things are not as apparent as they seem to be. So, we look at some sites on the Internet that make sense. We remember the Republican National Convention of 2008, and its presentation of lots of commercials for "lifestyles" ... American style. Eh?

If you try to tell it like it is, and you are accurate in your descriptions, you are called a "whack job." [Whack job (colloquial, pejorative) A crazy, possibly dangerous, person; basket case, loony, nutjob, nutter, screwball, wacko, wingnut. wiktionary]

Everything you wanted to know about mooseburgers: "As psychologists have shown, we respond intuitively and emotionally to stories while numbers and logic leave us cold. This is why stories can sway us like nothing else and why, for someone selling toothpaste or politicians, stories are an essential marketing tool.

"Unfortunately, stories have limitations and the growing importance of candidates' narratives in political marketing leads to problems that were on full display in both conventions. For one thing, the stories tend to be ersatz simply because real life stories are far too complicated and messy to be packaged and advertised."
" ... And so it goes. I watched every night of the Republican convention and I still don't know what John McCain would do about climate change, the deficit, immigration or a dozen other burning issues but I did find out how he and Cindy met and fell in love and I learned that Sarah Palin's dad woke her at 3 a.m. to go hunting.

Oh, and I discovered that Democrats hate ordinary Americans. Good to know. (THE OTTAWA CITIZEN. SEPTEMBER 6, 2008. LINK) ... "

Another blogger, Jack Pribek, sees the correlation of  "Bernays" to ersatz, when "marketing" is mentioned. Meanwhile this year from Pribek dot net we read:

" ... Bernays was hired by ALCOA (owned by the Mellon family), in the early ’40s, to do some P.R. around the same time that ALCOA, who was the largest producer of fluoride (basically a by-product of fertilizer manufacturing), was scheming to unload fluoride via the nation’s drinking water supply. Bernays went on to design a P.R. campaign for fluoride based on dental health.

" ... So, if you are a person who assumes that those who speak out about water fluoridation are whack jobs, conspiracy theorists, John Birchers and such because, you believe that fluoride is merely used to prevent cavities, you should be interested to know that the man that wrote that script for you, said this in his own words… (Pribek, Jack. July 12, 2013. LINK) ..."
" ... THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.
" ... We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.
" ...Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.
" ... They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons—a trifling fraction of our hundred and twenty million—who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world. ... "
That is the opening salvo from Edward Bernays’ 1928 book “Propaganda” (Pribek, ibid.) ... "

Ersatz is with us all in our long-suffering will to do what's right. We cannot drift far from skeptical on almost any "publicized" story, or "professional" research.

It's like this: if you have an automobile manufacturing company, and your first attempts are fire bombs in car crashes, what do you do? You immediately start a "our car is safer than the others" campaign. It is the least expensive solution to the problem.

If you are a dentist, you advertise that your procedures are painless. If you are a nuclear power plant, you propagandize that your plant is engineered and built with redundancy that "insures" no radioactive leaks.

If you are a government gone mad, you rely heavily on "Bernaysian" public relations tactics to keep the public off your back.

Be it ever so humble, every living thing has the right to a life. Today, life for humans is plagued with a general feeling of discomfort or illness, or uneasiness, for which an exact cause is difficult to identify.

Our real life stories are co-opted by slugs of deception, who slime their way into our living rooms. It is deemed by the elite just too difficult to tell the real story, with all its intricacies. For elites, it is even more rift to actually spend time and money to fix what is broken.

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation," said Thoreau, and it is not by common man's own hand he lives this way. Evidence is everywhere that mankind has been hoodwinked for all of its 12,000 years of written history. People are being taught to eat people.

Full article ::

" ... If you doubt that big money and lies can pervert elections, look at Initiative 522 in Washington State. It had been put on the ballot by a grassroots coalition of consumers, organic producers, environmentalists, and others who want honesty in food labeling.

The initiative would've required grocery manufacturers that slip genetically manipulated organisms into their products to state that fact on their food labels. But the industry ran a dishonest, multimillion-dollar PR campaign, including ads to scare voters by falsely claiming that the truth-in-labeling provision would jack up each family's annual food costs by an average of more than $450.

Especially dishonest (and likely illegal) was the industry's crude attempt to keep voters from knowing who was funding the attack ads. A front group, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, set up a dummy campaign account called "Defense of Brand," which really was a Hide-the-Brand artifice. It let big-name food giants put some $11 million into the no-labeling campaign, without revealing their participation and angering consumers.

But the state attorney general exposed this dodge and forced the giants to fess up. Behind this hoax-within a hoax-within another hoax were such names as Campbell Soup, Coke, Nestlé, and Pepsi. With their money and deceptions, they prevailed in the vote, but that same combo of cash and lies also infuriated millions of consumers and others across the country who seek nothing more than a basic level of corporate integrity – and a minimal level of control over the food they bring into their homes.

The GMO profiteers can run, but finally they won't be able to hide from the growing number of Americans who're onto them – and literally fed up with their tactics. GMO labeling laws are currently being pushed in some 20 other states – the fun is just beginning.
