Homo sapiens-consumere: a new species designed to buy
By bombarding each person with hundreds-of-thousands of commercial messages per year, the technocratic, consumer research scientists have created a new fork in the road of human evolution. Through generations of cradle-to-grave consumer conditioning, and lifelong intra-cerebral media-drips, the emergence of a new proto-human has arrived, the Homo sapiens-consumere. This is a highly specialized species of docile, obedient consumers. They are a material goods and brands, hunter-gather society of hominids standing upright to shop.
Science which promised so much for the future of humanity, has been abducted by international corporations to transform human beings into subservient entities of never-ending fruitless consumerism and mindless entertainment. At the dawn of a new millennium and era, many have been disappointed to discover that transhumanism was less about a singularity of human consciousness or quantum evolution, and more about the quasi-cybernetic peripheral adornment of gadgets, handbags and designer glasses.
Materialism and consumerism are sophisticated forms of shackle-less bondage. Slaves were chattel property like a mule; beasts of burden. The new slavery is consumerism and every race is property of corporate profit. The new slavery dehumanizes all races as beasts of buying. We are all share-croppers working for a roof, food and our share of the material-goods crop. Consumerism is your master.
The vestigial remnants of the authentic human are hanging by a thin thread. Humans have been denatured and raised in hostile and completely artificial environments, and have been deprived of loving communities, healthy natural foods, and the simple room to breathe. Like manchurian candidates, we have been made into manchurian consumers, who subconsciously buy when we are triggered by our brand masters.
Re-discover what is real and become human again. The greatest gifts in life are the most simple and overlooked. Look to nature and to the great earth for the answers.
