    The Endless Commercial

    The Endless Commercial School

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

    ― Edward L. Bernays, Propaganda

    “I know right now that it may seem controversial but you’ll learn to love and live in the endless commercial.”

    Endless Commercial

    My name is not important, I’ve been sent to put an end
    To the wanking in the ranks of the disloyal opposition
    You’ve been heard to complain, you don’t like your status quo
    And you haven’t met your quota of spending, don’t you know
    Your mission is to conform and to consume
    You’re way behind now so get your ass started
    Where would we be if we all did what we wanted?

    The wheels of industry would grind up to a halt
    Our factories in Mexico would surely feel the jolt
    Run though the maze and get your piece of cheese
    Don’t come to us if you wind up on your knees
    Deep down inside yes, you may be seething
    But we want you good and tired, just barely breathing
    Modern life’s got you down? We got pills for all your ills
    All you gotta do is buy a lifetime supply of magic potions
    You won’t know what to feel, what is fake and what is real
    As they slowly take control of your mind and your emotions
    Until you finally tow the line
    You’re not exempt, no you won’t be forgotten
    Take it from me, we know how to push your buttons
    What you believe ain’t subject to debate
    We’ll let you know what to love and what to hate
    You’ll be confused morning noon and night
    We’ll keep your senses occupied till you’re lobotomized
    We’ll entertain you till we drive you to drinking
    Did you believe we want you to start thinking?

    We are the global merchants we have beads for all your needs
    To sell our way of life to the entire universe is our agenda
    Those who try to resist we will be targets on our list
    We’ll bombard ‘em with consumer goods until they finally surrender
    And learn to mend their frugal ways
    I know right now it may seem controversial
    But you’ll learn to love and live in the endless commercial
    Leave everything to us, trust me, we know best
    Just park the kids by the TV and we’ll do all the rest
    We’ll pull the strings behind the scene
    And let you all believe that this is really just a dream
    Should you wake up, screaming “how’d this come about?”

    Just keep your mouth shut if you know a way out.
