Why Do You Eat Bacon And Eggs?

SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=24124

Because the Beech-Nut Packing Company told you to, that’s why. But don’t take it from me, take it from the man who engineered the campaign himself, Edward Bernays. So what other ideas have been woven so thoroughly into the fabric of our society that we no longer even stop to think about them?

    This reminds me of the tradition of drinking a distilled glass of water when you first wake up before putting anything in your stomach until later in the day. I am looking into partial ketosis, rather than engorging my stomach with food throughout the day. Most of which is not actually absorbed by the body, but still uses more energy to dispel the refuse. Simpler, smaller meals with great flavor are what I’m looking for these days.

    … I don’t eat bacon and eggs; I eat broccoli and eggs.

    But, now that I think about it, I have noticed a lot of bacon and eggs propaganda.

    James, I regard you as a man of unquestionable integrity when reporting the facts. Your research is always thorough and your attention to detail is peerless. You urge caution where appropriate, and always advise us to do our own research into everything you post. You never treat us like idiots. This is why I’ve not only followed you almost from day one, but I recommend you first to everyone I meet online and in the ‘real’ world. You are quite simply the standard when it comes to alternative reporting. 
    So why oh why do you feel the need to pander to the ill informed by using the lazy inadequate and incorrect vernacular meaning of the word CONSPIRACY? By this I mean an unproven speculative version of events as proposed by ‘tin foil hat’ wearing ‘conspiracy theorists’ – as the sleeping masses and morons regard critical thinkers and truth sharers. 
    We now know, thanks to an FOI request by a US newspaper in 1976, that the CIA utilised the term ‘conspiracy theorist’ in 1967 to deride those questioning the official narrative of the assassination of JFK, as proposed by the Warren Commission Report. So we can reasonably deduce that there’s a Psy-Op out there to alter the meaning of this word in popular culture. By using it incorrectly here, you literally played into their hands by playing THEIR game. 
    In this instance it was particularly irksome because you then immediately went on to prove beyond all reasonable doubt that Edward Bernays was indeed involved in an actual conspiracy with the Chestnut Packing Company and others (including an unnamed physician) to alter the perception of the public to the idea of a heavy breakfast. And the evidence you used was a primary source of what one could reasonably regard as being of unimpeachable voracity: a video of Bernays himself admitting same. That’s evidence that could be presented in a court of law FFS! And unless further evidence could be found to prove the wicked old bastard was exaggerating, used to prove that case beyond reasonable doubt. 
    So it WAS a conspiracy. Just because the masses have been trained, like those poor kids reciting the pledge of allegiance to the bloodsoaked rag of shame, to misuse the word, you don’t need to validate their misconceptions by using their incorrect meaning. 
    We may indeed need to take a leaf out of the book of those who have gone before us and own the words used to deride us. But this should not include employing the lazy and incorrect forms and definitions that actually radically alter the true meanings of words and degrade their true value. 
    A conspiracy is an agreement between two or more people to do something, usually something bad. It always was and must remain so – no matter who tries to tell us otherwise. 
    Thank you James – from the chemtrailed flatlands of the English Midlands 😉

    – The Law of Return

    He was selling a big breakfast. There is nothing sinister about that. What was sinister was when actual evil took up this ideas.
    You’re going over the top with the pledge of allegiance.

    A great book on propaganda is “Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes” by Jacques Ellul. You can find a free pdf online; it was written in the mid 20th century.

    I would say Ellul’s work is more insightful and detailed than Bernays’, but it is seldom referenced.

    Another great one is “Psychological Warfare” by Paul Linebarger (Great because it is all firsthand knowledge like Bernays. This is what did professionally)

  • Nicholas Peter

    The beginning of the book was interesting. The book was boring and not that impressive or eye opening. That’s my personal opinion.

  • Ian Treloar

    I get that this is about conditioning and not about bacon and eggs. We are shown children being conditioned to say the Oath. But is it any less conditioning to follow sheep-like in bending the knee? That these sports people are such individual free thinkers? That they associate the flag and anthem and America as a whole with their hatred of Trump and support of BLM? Give me a break. These people are as conditioned as much as anyone else.

    “These examples of social engineering are bad; therefore, all social engineering is bad.” Isn’t that a logical fallacy?
