(NaturalNews) Have you noticed the incredible detachment from reality exhibited by the masses these days? The continued operation of modern society, it seems, depends on people making sure they don’t acknowledge reality (or try to deal with it). “Denial” is what keeps every sector of civilization humming along: medicine, finance, government, agriculture and more.
The trouble with the denial approach is that eventually the lies collide with reality. Until that day comes, however, happy-go-lucky Americans are merrily enjoying their courtship with self delusion, repeating the following 37 lies to themselves as if they were true:
Lie #1) All FDA-approved medications are safe to consume in any combination, because the FDA protects the public.
Lie #2) Food prices keep going up because inflation is a natural force that can’t be halted.
Lie #3) The mainstream media is telling me the truth when it reports on world events.
Lie #4) Chemical food additives are tested for their safety before being widely used across the food supply.
Lie #5) We can all pump groundwater out of the ground forever, and it will never run out.
Lie #6) We can also pump fossil fuels out of the ground forever, and they will never run out, either. Why worry?
Lie #7) If anything bad happens in terms of a national emergency or natural disaster, the government will take care of me.
Lie #8) It doesn’t matter where my food comes from as long as it’s cheap and delicious.
Lie #9) GMOs must be safe to eat because a bunch of scientists paid by the biotech industry all tell each other that GMOs are safe and therefore have reached “scientific consensus.”
Lie #10) Government debt doesn’t matter because the government can simply create more money any time they want.
Lie #11) Mercury in vaccines must be safe to inject into children, otherwise the CDC and FDA wouldn’t allow it to be used in vaccines.
Lie #12) Organic produce is a waste of money. I’ll buy conventional produce treated with pesticides and herbicides because the cost of all the cancer treatments I’ll need 20 years later will be covered by Obamacare anyway.
Lie #13) The history taught to children in public schools is a true and accurate history. Columbus was best friends with the Indians, too!
Lie #14) Swallowing fluoride chemicals is good for babies and children, and that’s why cities put fluoride into public water supplies.
Lie #15) Flu shots prevent the flu. That’s why the package inserts for flu vaccines openly state there is no scientific evidence to support any conclusion that influenza vaccines prevent influenza.
Lie #16) Whatever is backed by “science” must be true. Science is never falsified by corrupt scientists or corporate agendas, and scientific conclusions are never wrong.
