They left some stuff out for some reason by Ashleykat
They left some stuff out for some reason
I came across a PSA on deviantart. I'm sure you've seen it.

It's a funny skin care PSA that only warns about one thing, but leaves a bunch of other things out. It's like they were targeting a certain group of people, almost like they were trying to trick everyone into thinking that it's just this one group of people who may be damaging their skin, when really almost everyone is damaging their skin all the time.

I thought, instead of tricking everyone into thinking only one particular group of people is damaging their skin, why not tell the truth, and by that I mean the actual truth, and make a list that will actually help people? I think telling the whole truth is a much nobler goal than trying to trick people by tapping into their vanity, and attempting to manipulate them into looking down their noses at others in order marginalize and publicly shame a certain group of people with the eventual goal of influencing public policy (they do this on purpose, so much so that they actually have a word for it. they call it "de-normalization." It's how they try to shame people into buying pharmaceutical products). It doesn't really work, and neither do the pharmaceutical products (well to be fair, they do have like a 2% success rate). 

We are a new generation. We are a cynical group and we see through lies very easily. We prize irony. We think for ourselves and we make our own decisions. We research stuff. This old school propaganda bs doesn't work on us. It is a joke to us.

There's another one about gum disease. They leave out the part about how you can prevent that by brushing your teeth. 

Was taxpayer money used for these ads?

My favorite part is the pictures at the bottom. Look what the signs they're holding say. My watchers with the best memories, will remember me predicting this would happen, more than a year ago:

velvetgloveironfist.blogspot.c…

In fact, I quoted those people, an entire year before they even said it themselves. And I also said that fact could be used to give us more freedom, or less. Looks like we're going with less!

When I imagine what the world will be like 20 years from now...

Anyone want to colonize Mars with me? I'm going to re-name it Free Planet. It will be a utopia of freedom! and real freedom, too - not just a slogan. On Free Planet people can actually smoke if they want, drink soda if they want, and do all the other fun stuff. The stuff that people on earth for some reason think it's their business to tell people not to do. Those types of people will not be allowed on Free Planet. They can stay on earth and just keep telling each other what not to do. We are leaving. And while they are busy telling each other not to eat red meat, and spending billions worldwide on advertising telling people not to do things, we'll be eating red meat and smoking and drinking and having fun, and spending our billions to actually just fricken cure things already.

So who wants to come with me to FREE PLANET?? It sounds like quite the fun if you ask me.


In other news, look at this:
