    Default New York Times full page ad :)

    This ad caught my attention, I had to comment. How can a corporation be so far from reality that they think is ad is ok: can't they see themselves ...

    Ad in the Rolling Stone mag. April 20th 2017, my comment on right side, small print

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gY0Fdz350GE this is the t.v. ad
    • THE TRUTH IS HARD .. if you can't twist it to your liking
    • THE TRUTH IS HIDDEN.. because you hid it
    • THE TRUTH MUST BE PURSUED .. if you agree with it or not
    • THE TRUTH IS HARD TO HEAR.. especially if you don't speak it
    • THE TRUTH IS RARELY SIMPLE.. if it doesn't fit your agenda
    • THE TRUTH IS ISN'T SO OBVIOUS.. if you're looking through rose colored glasses
    • THE TRUTH IS NECESSARY.. if you want a free society
    • THE TRUTH CAN'T BE GLOSSED OVER.. you should take that advice
    • THE TRUTH HAS NO AGENDA.. so why don't you print it the way it is
    • THE TRUTH DOESN'T TAKES SIDES.. you should reflect on that
    • THE TRUTH ISN'T RED OR BLUE .. then why do you appear to be liberal oriented
    • THE TRUTH IS HARD TO ACCEPT.. if it doesn't agree with your slant
    • THE TRUTH PULLS NO PUNCHES .. so present it and let us make our own decision
    • THE TRUTH IS POWERFUL.. so present it straight up
    • THE TRUTH IS UNDER ATTACK.. by main stream media
    • THE TRUTH IS WORTH DEFENDING.. if we could get it
    • THE TRUTH REQUIRES TAKING A STAND.. let us decide what stance, not you
    • THE TRUTH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER.. because you've kept us from it

    • THE NEW YORK TIMES .. all the news we want you to hear

    Your comments are right on the money. Had MSM been reporting "THE TRUTH" all along, then things like this ad wouldn't need to be printed in the first place.

    The more I read the print version and watched the video version, the more it seems cryptic.

    What stuck out to me was the flashing of the words or sentences ... The flicker rate ... To hit the subconscious . Kind of a mind control

    Wow. The writer sounds really confused. If this is a professional stance, I'd say it is very passive aggressive, and full of contradictions. Maybe that's what the writer is trying to convey?

    This would not be out of place as a monologue in a psychiatrist's office.



    B.
    A human being is a part of the whole, called by us "Universe," a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

    It's obvious that despite the chaos, humanity is awakening and it's progressively harder for old institutions to keep up with this impetus.
    Such ad, no matter what we think is behind it, would be simply unthinkable 10 years ago, heck... even 3 years ago.

    One may think is just another trick, i say consciousness erodes everything form the grassroots up, turning what previously seen as rigid structures unstable.
    They are people too, just like us, they are awakening too and It's hard for them too. Just Imagine in what pressure they must be in, to release such ad.
