How Advertising Makes You Obsessed With Being Thin and Simultaneously Fat

The job of modern advertising is to manipulate, deceive, mind control, brainwash, and lie and it works! That is why companies spend close to half a trillion dollars a year on advertising. Companies spend close to as much money brainwashing and manipulating people as the US government spends on war! Advertising is psychological warfare too. The obsession with thinness and eating disorders is completely an advertising/media driven phenomenon. Advertisers do this to make women, primarily, feel insecure about their bodies so they buy more bullshit i.e. liposuction, cosmetics, plastic surgery, diet pills, fraudulent weight loss products, and gym memberships. It is also designed to make naturally thicker women i.e. women of color, feel like shit so they will also consume more bullshit which statistics show has been quite effective considering the high levels of consumerism in Black communities. It is set up though because advertising paints this ideal image of women, i.e. thinness but then simulatenously promotes everything which will make them FAT! Advertisers heavily promote candy bars, soda, so-called natural "soy laden" foods, high carbohydrate foods, fast food and processed foods, diet foods, and sugar laden low fat foods all of which make people fat! Advertisers are the reason why people are fat and ashamed of it which then makes them even more obsessed with being thin! Advertisers create the problem of obesity so they create more demand for ideal images of thinness.

The Vegetarian Myth and Why I Quit Being Vegan

Question from inbox: Greetings Curtis, I've been wanting to ask you what your conversion from being vegan was due to? Were you experiencing health problems. Very curious

Answer: I first started being vegan/vegetarian when I was a sophomore at the age of 19 in college since I read about the mistreatment of animals and some of the harmful effects of eating meat. The information was from PETA. I was a vegan for roughly about four months, lost a lot of weight but due to peer pressure, I decided to go back to eating meat. I then became a hardcore vegan/raw foodist again when I was in graduate school at the age of 22. I did it for four years for health reasons. I did lose a lot of weight and at one point weighed only 125 pounds. People even told me that I looked like I had AIDS. At the time, I dismissed them since I believed I was losing "waste". Towards the end of my fourth year into veganism, I came across a variety of information that veganism was not healthy and that eating meat was not bad for you. Most vegans become very close minded and religious in their approach to be vegan and become totally shut off to new information that may challenge their long held beliefs or lifestyle they may have embraced for a very long time. I am thankful I was open minded enough to receive new information and critique it. For many vegans, being vegan is their identity and they form egos around this identity hence the frequent elitists comments about what "meat eaters" do. Once people assume the vegan identity, they can't be wrong in following that a vegan diet. Their egos won't allow them too. That is why I have said that being a vegan is really an eating disorder because people who really get into are very insecure and seeking something to validate themselves. So if they are "wrong" in following a vegan diet, then triggers their toxic shame that is something is wrong with them and this causes them to delude themselves into believing that being a vegan is good. Nonetheless, I came across factual information which challenged my beliefs plus I started to apply logic about if eating meat was so bad then how come people have not been getting sick the whole time they were eating it which has been hundreds of thousands of years. Along with the information, I found myself craving eggs and salmon. I was craving cholesterol rich foods because your brain does not work without it! Our brains need animal fats and cholesterol to function properly and that is why vegetarian diets cause people's brains to shrink and often used by religious cults to brainwash people because being a vegan lowers brain activity. The cravings and the new information are why I decided to change and I will never look back! I did it for health purposes and once I realized being a vegan was not healthy, then I quit. I highly recommend that any vegan and raw foodist and even non-vegan check out the awesome book the "The Vegetarian Myth" by Lierre Keith. Phenomenal read indeed!

Nestle CEO: Humans Have No Right to Water, Water Should be Privatized and Sold

"Why is it that people have to pay water bills in a world that is two thirds water" Martin Luther King Jr.

That is because humans have no right to water according to the Nestle CEO. They have no right to it because water should be commodity and humans should have pay for something that nature gives for free and is essential to life. So if you don't have money to buy water, you will just die of thirst which ten of thousands of people do every single day. But do these companies care? No. Companies like Nestle are buying up the world's water supply in effort to make profits of the world's fresh water scarcity while simultaneously polluting the world's fresh water so they can sell bottled water in the first place. When companies get their hands on the world's water, millions will die of thirst, wars will be fought over water, and fresh water will continue to be more scarce and polluted. The coming global water crisis and privatization of the water by banks and huge corporations is just another example of how kapitalism kills!
