Last January I wrote a Blog entitled “Happy?” (http://www.all-creatures.org/heart/blog-20070108.html)
after seeing one of those insensitive, deceptive commercials on the TV
weather channel early in the morning. Well, something similar happened
again this morning – using the word “happy” in a most cynical way to
describe breakfast products that are disastrous for the health of
people, the environment and, of course, the abused and slaughtered
The very use of the word “happy” makes it obvious that the company is
trying to over-compensate for something that they feel needs to be
hidden: the cruelty that is part and parcel of the production of animal
products. In other words, they “protest too much,” as the saying goes.
Lies repeated often enough are accepted as truth – especially when
most people want to believe them and will enthusiastically support the
liars. Come to think of it, wasn’t something like this said about a
certain notorious dictator years ago?!
