Forget the Red Pill. Forget the Blue Pill.
Take the Purple one instead. This purple pill will give us deep insights into the corruption that is endemic to our current system of corporatist fascism and the role it plays in ruining our lives by profiting off of our sickness and misery.
The first step to take on our purple pill journey, will be the consideration of an allegory: the production of feedlot beef.
When young cattle are taken off the free range pastures and put into feedlots to be fattened for slaughter, they are given feed manufactured specifically to accomplish fattening as quickly as possible.
This Feed is largely based on Corn and Soy derivatives, usually genetically modified so that the Big Agricultural Corporations can utilize pesticides like Round Up on their vast fields of grains to maximize their harvests and eliminate losses from insects and rodents that would normally take there share of the crops before harvest.
Since ruminants like cows were designed (or evolved - whatever you believe) to eat and thrive on grass and not corn and soy products, the first feedlot ranchers discovered that most cows eating grains would get sick and die before they reached prime slaughter weight.
So they started incorporating pharmaceutical engineered antibiotics into their feed mix, and discovered that they could keep the cattle alive long enough to achieve maximum weight at slaughter time.
Regardless of concerns about health or the nutritious quality of the meat produced by this system -- or even humaneness of the process in mistreating living creatures in this way -- you still have to admire the scientific achievement such an effective system of getting maximum productivity out of the meat production industry represents.
It's so effective, they use the same system on We the Sheeple in our own Feedlot USA Inc.
Monsanto is the top producer of genetically modified commodity grains: primarily soy, corn and wheat. Food manufacturers like Kraft, Nabisco, Nestle, Pepsi etc. buy their grains in bulk to generate the cornucopia of food products that make up the bulk of the food supply consumed by the masses.
Many people that regularly consume these feed products develop digestive system problems like heart burn, ulcers, acid reflux, etc. It's even got a scientific sounding acronym like GERDS to help you understand you believe it's just a "condition" that happens, not because your eating artificially created, genetically modified FEED products instead of real food.
So just like the feedlot managers adding antibiotics to keep the cattle eating just healthy enough to stay on Feed for fattening, we have the pharmaceutical Corporations to ensure we have the medicine that keeps us JUST healthy enough to stay on Feed.
Companies like Pharmacia who gave us the glorious purple pill; the number one, best-selling brand, Nexium.
Oh by the way.....guess who is the largest share holder of Monsanto's ownership stock?
Pharmacia owns 85% of Monsanto's corporate shares.
These corporations are the managers of our very own sheeple feedlot called "SOCIETY."
Forget the Red or Blue Pill. Take the purple pill, that way you can continue to consume the FEED found in most of the feeding troughs of our sick society.
