I Consume, Therefore I Exist
How is it possible that multiple millions of people can fall head-over-heels in love with a poison that causes Yellow Fat Disease?

“To say that schools fail to produce an informed, democratic citizenry is to overlook the fact that schools were never intended for that purpose. Their mission is to turn out loyal subjects who do not challenge the existing corporate-dominated social order. That the school has pretty much fulfilled its system-sustaining role is no accident. The educational system is both a purveyor of the dominant political culture and a product of it.”

“With endless course of vague, fact-deficient generalities, they provide little education about language, thought, and behavior — the ultimate considerations in human communication. Young people are indoctrinated for a place on the endless belts that carry them as marketing statistics in and out of countless shopping centers as they process through life. I consume, therefore I exist, or vice versa, becomes the philosophical premise upon which much of life is predicated.
“Techniques for critical language analysis are available. They could provide the intellectual toughness to defend against verbal manipulation, to discriminate between fantasy and reality. But the language system to which most individuals are educated ensures they will become both victims and victimizers with little awareness that anything out of the ordinary is going on.”
