Mike Adams – Natural News September 2, 2011
Through a devolving web of greed, self-serving power and a departure from fundamental ethics, Western culture has, over the last hundred years, become the counterfeit culture.
Nothing is real anymore – not the food, not the money, and certainly not the evening news. And because it’s not real, it’s not sustainable. That’s why it’s headed for collapse, which is all too real, as many people are about to find out.
In the mean time, here are some observations about the counterfeit culture in which we all frustratingly find ourselves. It’s all about corporations, governments and institutions being “in the business of” counterfeiting something — faking something or pretending to create something of value when they really aren’t. Ring a bell?
The Counterfeit Culture
The Federal Reserve is in the business of counterfeiting money.
The mainstream media is in the business of counterfeiting news.
The pharmaceutical industry is in the business of counterfeiting medicine (Biopracy! They are stealing molecules from nature then counterfeiting their own patented variations.)
The medical schools are in the business of counterfeiting medical degrees. (When a doctor graduates from medical school, he still knows virtually nothing about nutrition.)
Doctors are in the business of counterfeiting false medical authority.
The mega-sized food corporations are in the business of counterfeiting food. (Processed cheese food product, anyone?)
The global consumer product companies are in the business of manufacturing counterfeit consumer products such a “baby oil” (which is really a petroleum product).
Social networks like Facebook are in the business of counterfeiting friends. (Please LIKE this article, okay?)
Cookie-cutter home builders are in the business of constructing counterfeit homes out of plywood, styrofoam and sheetrock… many these homes will not be standing in just 20 years.
Local city councils are in the business of counterfeiting power. (Obey or be punished!)
Public schools are in the business of counterfeiting school diplomas. (Huh? What? Who needs to learn how to write, anyway?)
The Pentagon is in the business of counterfeiting war. (Don’t have a war to fight? Bomb the World Trade Center and blame it on someone!)
Mainstream historians are in the business of counterfeiting history. (Everything you were taught about history in public school is a lie…)
The globalist banksters are in the business of counterfeiting debt. (You thought it was money, didn’t ya? But it’s really just debt.)
And yet, things that are REAL are called fake
A man who recently stamped his own gold coins — out of real gold — was raided and arrested by the U.S. Treasury Department which announced that his GOLD coins were “counterfeit!” (http://thewarningsigns.blogspot.com…)
After the drug companies stole the lovastatin molecule from red yeast rice to create their own statin drugs, the FDA tried to ban all red yeast rice as a dietary supplement, claiming it contained “counterfeit statin drugs.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/030010_d…)
When the alternative media like NaturalNews and Infowars publishes real news that nobody else will publish, it’s called “fake” by the corrupt, openly bought-and-paid-for mainstream media (the OLD media).
Real is fake, fake is real
That’s how the world works today, folks: Things that are REAL – herbal medicine, gold coins, truthful journalism – are all called FAKE.
Meanwhile, things that are FAKE – the money supply, pharmaceutical medicine, myths of U.S. history and justification for war – are all called REAL.
No wonder most people feel like their world has been turned upside down. But there’s an easy way out: When you see someone from the government moving their lips, and words are coming out, there’s no need trying to figure out whether what they’re saying is REAL or FAKE.
It’s all simpler than you think: If their lips are moving, then what they’re saying is REALLY FAKE, and you can leave it at that.
