Happy Earth Day sheeple. Happy Earth Day all pleasant puppets of corporate marketing and manipulation. Madison Avenue was heavily involved in creating Earth Day. Famed adman Julian Koenig named it. That April 22 was his birthday is something we’ll just chalk up to coincidence.
Koenig also gave us the Timex tagline “It takes a licking and keeps on ticking” and the “Think Small” Volkswagen ad campaign.
We put Earth Day, started in 1970, right up there with Kwanzaa, started in 1966, as attempts by super-rich international establishment types to minimize the influence of Christianity and conscience in influencing social mores and matters of government. Christianity, after all, is an annoying roadblock to the future they envision in which they will rule us as kings and queens.
Think that’s paranoid? Compare how super-rich international establishment minion Google gave Easter, yesterday, no recognition while going full out for today’s celebration of collective control.
And in keeping with our own Earth Day tradition, we’d like to give a shout-out to Philly’s own Ira Einhorn, who likes to take credit for starting the day. He emceed the first celebration after all.
