Cycle Of 'compulsive Consumerism' Leaves British Family Life In Crisis

Recommended Posts

That's me then, literally. The only item of clothing I've got with a company logo is the Black Sheep Brewery.

Sheep are referred to over 200 times in the Bible - no 'Black sheep' are ever mentioned!

Therefore the 'con-cept' has been invented by evil men with a hidden purpose pulling the wool down over ignorants eyes

Would you think the same if a Hundred W-H-I-T-I-E-S stood in the field with one Black-skinned person amongst them?

They did not choose at birth the genetic outward colouring of their being

IMHO 'competition' over consumer goods is only part of what is making our kids so miserable.

In school they are told what they are supposed to think on a lot of issues that they should be left to make their own mind up.

'Controlling' show-off parents seem to be on the increase, many of them the product of controlling parents themselves.. At the other end of the spectrum we also have an increase in the number of parents that don't give a toss.

Then we have this culture where it's the norm to analyse, judge and sneer at other people. Clothes, homes, cars, looks, body... You only have to look at the most popular magazines and their contents. Nasty voyeuristic, jealous, misery making tripe.

I totally agree with the majority of your post but having taught in the UK, and now teaching in Asia, I can assure you that children in the UK are definately taught critical thinking skills and how to make informed decisions. Unfortunately the vast majority of kids are subjected to huge amounts of peer pressure, predominantly because of the media as you say. A lot of them take for granted what the older generation would class as luxury items, a huge reality shock will hit a lot of households very soon, if not already.

It's the biased evidence they get presented with from an early age that I have a problem with. It starts at an age where their skills haven't been developed, which means they are less likely to question what they already 'know'.

I vaguely remember someone at school attempting to mock me for wearing non-branded socks.

I just thought it was funny - who buys branded socks?

But apparently it does really matter to some people which I find a bit sad.

Non-branded socks, did they get down on bended knees to check? :lol:

Can remember the stick I got at school for wearing no-name trainers.

The "inverted" nature of this is interesting. I pay though the nose for my boys education and we don't have this problem, because everything is banned at school. iPads, mobiles, personal laptops, blackberries, nin-jackos (he's 8, they are spinning lego things) all banned. I know that as soon as some craze takes off, within a week I will get a letter from the head man requesting that they are removed from the school. Pretty much nails it, the only consumer envy I saw last term was when one of them had a better cricket bat than his mates.

Yes!

They will never mention it's the fault of not taming the Big Business Advertising merry-go-round and brainwashing by their elitist buddies running their population wealth-extractors!

It's all blamed directly on families struggling thru life under intense pressures caused by banker elites/Govts talking up false boom bubbles enticing them into debt and talking them into overpaying for basic shelter by constant property porn en masse brainwashing!

IPSOS MORI biggest company in World moulding your brains/thought patterns for globalista IP Govern-mental class

Mori bought out a company for £88 million - mark of the Masons (multiple of 11 as in 9/11!)

People being mislead to idolise

(the Elitist piss-take I sussed yrs ago is banning smoking ie tobacco > Nicotine Chew-bacca after growing it and getting Milliions hooked on the drug)

NIKE

In Greek mythology, Nike (Greek: Νίκη, "Victory", pronounced [nǐːkɛː]) was a goddess who personified victory, also known as the Winged Goddess of Victory.(think - Nelson)

Nike assumed the role of the divine charioteer,a role in which she often is portrayed in Classical Greek art. Nike flew around battlefields rewarding the victors with glory and fame.

(TV idols 'fame')

Names stemming from Nike include amongst others: Nicholas(father Chrimbo), Nicola, Nick, Nikolai, Nicolae, Nils, Klaas, Nicole, Ike, Niki, Nikita, Nika, Niketas, and Nico-(tine)

The word “Nicolaitans,” in Greek, means “followers of Nicolas.” The name “Nicolas” means “victor of the people.”

OK there is the pleasant side of giving to friends + family - but at what cost to millions enticed by Big Business to provide these gifts which many can't afford?

Big Business even time "the-next-must-have-toy" ie gimmick over expensive toy to coax every parent to splash out

Followers of Nicholas - Do you see?

Bible check it out

In Revelation, chapter 2, we read of an enigmatic sect or group called the Nicolaitans who post a great threat to the churches of God. The Messiah, Yeshua, says to the Ephesus church: “But this you have, that you hate the DEEDS of the Nicolaitans, which I also HATE” (Rev.2:6). Notice that they hated and rejected the doctrines, works, and doctrines of the “Nicolaitans.” The Ephesus church was historically a type or antitype of the first and second century churches of God – essentially, the first generation of the church and their early descendents. But Christ said, “He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to [all] the churches” (v.7).

Then, to the Pergamos church, who existed in a succeeding period of the church, Yeshua declares again: “But I have a few things against you, because you have there those who hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit sexual immorality.

Thus [i.e. therefore] you also have those who hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate. REPENT, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth” (vs.14-16).

IN-doctrinate = brainwashing

That is well worth a watch, it's actually quite scary to think how prevalent advertising is.

I try and make a point of not buying anything I see advertised if possible, because I know the cost of that advert has been added to the price I have to pay.....and advertised dearer goods are not necessarily better goods. ;)

The whole basis of our society has been ridiculed a shown as the sham that it is.

Trouble is, why does anyone expect the government etc to listen to Unicef? what benefit do THEY bring to our economy?

The economy is a disgrace to our future generations. Yet, we continue don't we? nothing will be done about it.

I hate it when things like 'Sent from my iphone' gets tacked onto the end of emails. Who the hell do they think they are plastering there bloomin' brands everywhere.

Ha! It's only an example signature. Customers can set it to whatever they like:

Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars -> Signature.

Why parents shouldn't feel guilty if they can't devote time to their toddlers

Critics are rejecting the theory that children need close attention in their first three years, dismissing neuroscience as 'neurotrash.

A new day a new theory.

I'm not saying that the above theory isn't or is correct. It might or might not be but I don't need yet another another "critics" (money making) opinion via the media thank you very much. Tomorrow they'll again be saying something different on devoting time to toddlers and everything else for that matter. My guess is that they really don't have a clue on the subject or much else.

Potatos are good for you potatos are bad for you, salt is good salt is bad ............................................................................................................etc etc etc on everything ad infinitum.

I always though the "sent from my iPhone" sig was there to show that you weren't at your desk so couldn't do a proper reply and please excuse the vast number of typos because it has a rubbish touch screen rather than proper keys. I have a work one, can't stand it, my own has keys.

In school they are told what they are supposed to think on a lot of issues that they should be left to make their own mind up.

The RE lessons I had in the early 70s, along with hymns sung in assembly, religious parables read out during assemblies etc., really turned me against religion at an early age.

I resented being told what to think. There was certainly no alternative presented, I had to find that for myself.

...agreed ..they are a crowd of wasters with no recovery process recommended and therefore part of the problem.....the best way forward is to get back to “auld claithes and porridge”....see how that adds value .... :rolleyes:

My mobile doesn't do texts. Surprises people when they try and send one and can't. Tell them they could always try and talk to me, or leave a voice message.

As the owner of a 5410 I never thought I'd be able to ask: How old is your phone?

I know :angry:

It seems to be my life's work telling my kids that what school has told then is only one viewpoint and not the gospel truth.

The RE lessons I had in the early 70s, along with hymns sung in assembly, religious parables read out during assemblies etc., really turned me against religion at an early age.

My OH is very proud of our eldest. Aged nine she declared she doesn't believe Jesus ever existed, due to lack of evidence.

We hadn't ever broached the subject with her :lol:
