Ubiquitous Assimilation

To deliberately believe in lies
while knowing they're false.

Examples of this in every day life:
Oh, I
need to be pretty
to be happy.
I need surgery to be pretty.
I need to be thin.

Our young men
are being told that women
are whores.
Things to be screwed.
Shit on.
And shamed.

This is a marketing holocaust.
Twenty-four hours a day
for the rest of our lives
the powers that be are hard at work
dumbing us to death!

So, to defend ourselves
and fight against
assimilating this dullness into our
thought processes
we must learn to read.
To stimulate our own imagination.
To cultivate
our own consciousness.
Our own belief systems.

We all need this skills
to defend
to preserve
our own minds.

if the images are always provided for you?)
