Remember the "Good Ole Days"? We used to say, "I remember when..." When we pine for the way things were...a simpler time... the intellectual elites would have us believe that we are morons and don't understand. In their mind, we should become subservient to their way of thinking, since we don't have the brainpower to cope with the complexities of modern day living. When one stands back from it, they are simply expressing their approach to simplifying the world...make everyone think and act like them. The fact of the matter is that a lot of this complexity...known as choice...is intended to confuse and control. The proliferation of types of Crest toothpaste, for example. How many different flavors of Coke do we need? Kraft got in trouble recently for all of its "product extensions" without really introducing new products AND missing the trend in healthy foods. More on this later.
