The Marketing of Evil
Two books on Commercial Brainwashing

[COMMENT:  The first book to be reviewed is Watch Out for the Children - a Mothers' Statement to Advertisers (30 pp., 8.5 x 11 format.  Institute for American Values, 1841 Broadway, Ste 211, NY, NY 10023   Tel: 212 246-3942, Fax: 212 541-6665    www.americanvalues.org

The Institute for American Values has published some very good material at very reasonable prices, including Hardwired to Connect - the New Scientific Case for Authoritative Communities. 

Watch Out for the Children comes from the mothers' hearts, and needs some masculine firmness.  But the content is superb and right on target.  They document the deliberate targeting of even infants for "company loyalty", crossing the line so long respected by marketers to not target young folks.  The problem, of course, is that young folks hold an increasingly larger amount of money in their hands, and so make themselves vulnerable to these predators.  Predators is not an unkind or unfair word.  They are just that, targeting persons who have no capacity to understand what is happening to them.  They are just one more segment of the mind-control culture which is operating through government, largely through our public education system (which is neither public nor education -- and which was never, right from the beginning, meant to educate to set free with truth). 

The picture given by this book is only one segment of this much larger predatory culture which preys on the weak and unaware.  They are no less evil than highway robbers, even more so, for they steal the innocence and reason of children who are incapable of fighting back.  Like abortionists.   Their god is money and power.  Their bottom line is their bank account.  That is evil, and ought to be said so from every pulpit in the land -- if we could wake up the inhabitants of those pulpits. 

It should not take studies for us to catch on to these evils among us.  It is common sense.  Anyone with a feather weight of spiritual alertness should recognize the darkness being siphoned into our minds.   There never was a teaspoon of evidence, not one, to support the "sex revolution", but we are so well brainwashed that we do not recognize when we are being deliberately lied to.  Where are the men who will stand up and protect their families from these horrendous influences?

I have not read the second book is below, which backs up the one above.  But the one below looks a bit more hard-hitting, and may be coming from some of those men who are beginning to wake up.  But the wake up must be spiritual, not merely intellectual, or it will not flourish.

It's finally here …   'The Marketing of Evil'
'How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom'

Posted: August 2, 2005    1:00 a.m. Eastern     © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com

One of the most anticipated books of the year – David Kupelian's blockbuster "The Marketing of Evil" – is now available at WorldNetDaily.


 

Already receiving wide and enthusiastic acclaim, the book, published by WND Books, is subtitled "How Radicals, Elitists, and Pseudo-Experts Sell Us Corruption Disguised as Freedom."

According to "The Marketing of Evil," Americans have come to tolerate, embrace and even champion many things that would have horrified their parents' generation – from easy divorce and unrestricted abortion-on-demand to extreme body piercing and teaching homosexuality to grade-schoolers. Does that mean today's Americans are inherently more morally confused and depraved than previous generations? Of course not, says veteran journalist David Kupelian. But they have fallen victim to some of the most stunningly brilliant and compelling marketing campaigns in modern history.

"The Marketing of Evil" reveals how much of what Americans once almost universally abhorred has been packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped and sold to them as though it had great value. Highly skilled marketers, playing on our deeply felt national values of fairness, generosity and tolerance, have persuaded us to embrace as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations since America’s founding regarded as grossly self-destructive – in a word, evil.

In this groundbreaking and meticulously researched book, Kupelian peels back the veil of marketing-induced deception to reveal exactly when, where, how, and especially why Americans bought into the lies that now threaten the future of the country.

For example, few of us realize that the widely revered father of the "sexual revolution" (Alfred Kinsey - RJ) has been irrefutably exposed as a full-fledged sexual psychopath who encouraged pedophilia. Or that giant corporations voraciously competing for America's $150 billion teen market routinely infiltrate young people's social groups to find out how better to lead children into ever more debauched forms of "authentic self-expression."

Likewise, most of us mistakenly believe the "abortion rights" and "gay rights" movements were spontaneous, grassroots uprisings of neglected or persecuted minorities wanting to breathe free. Few people realize America was actually "sold" on abortion thanks to an audacious public relations campaign that relied on fantastic lies and fabrications. Or that the "gay rights" movement – which transformed America's former view of homosexuals as self-destructive human beings into their current status as victims and cultural heroes – faithfully followed an in-depth, phased plan laid out by professional Harvard-trained marketers (The "Homosexual Agenda" was formulated in the seminal book "After the Ball: How America will Conquer its Fear and Hatred of Gays in the 90s" by Marshall Kirk & Hunter Madsen, and the seminal essay, "The Overhauling of Straight America" by Marshall Kirk & Erastes Pill. Here is an excerpt from that essay:  "The first order of business is desensitization of the American public concerning gays and gay rights. To desensitize the public is to help it view homosexuality with indifference instead of with keen emotion. Ideally, we would have straights register differences in sexual preference the way they register different tastes for ice cream or sports games: she likes strawberry and I like vanilla; he follows baseball and I follow football. No big deal.............." - RJ)  .

No quarter is given in this riveting, insightful exploration of how lies, both subtle and outrageous, are packaged as truth. From the federal government to the public school system to the news media to the hidden creators of "youth culture," nothing is exempt from the thousand-watt spotlight of Kupelian's journalistic inquiry.

In the end, "The Marketing of Evil" is an up-close, modern-day look at what is traditionally known as "temptation" – the art and science of making evil look good.

Until then, every copy of "The Marketing of Evil" sold by WND's online store will be autographed (at no charge) by the author.

'Important and groundbreaking book'

Already, Kupelian's book is receiving high praise from his peers:

"David Kupelian dares to tell the truth about the overwhelming forces in our society which take us far away from our original American concept of freedom with responsibility, happiness with commitments, and traditional values. 'The Marketing of Evil' is a serious wake-up call for all who cherish traditional values, the innocence of children, and the very existence of our great country."
– DR. LAURA SCHLESSINGER, talk-show host and author

"It's often said that marketing is warfare, and in 'The Marketing of Evil,' David Kupelian clearly reveals the stunning strategies and tactics of persuasion employed by those engaged in an all-out war against America's Judeo-Christian culture. If you really want to understand the adversary's thinking and help turn the tide of battle, read this book!"
– DAVID LIMBAUGH, syndicated columnist and author

"David Kupelian's research brings into sharp focus what many have sensed and suspected for a long time: The effort to change America's mind on issues like abortion, homosexuality, church-state separation, and more, is a well-thought-out strategic campaign that uses the methods of Madison Avenue to market rank lies. But the good news is that the truth will eventually win out, and Kupelian's important and groundbreaking book makes enormous progress toward that end."
– D. JAMES KENNEDY, Coral Ridge Ministries

"Every parent in America needs to read this book. David Kupelian skillfully exposes the secular left's rotten apple peddlers in devastating detail. From pitching promiscuity as 'freedom' to promoting abortion as 'choice,' the marketers of evil are always selling you something destructive – with catastrophic results. Kupelian shines a light on them all. Now watch the cockroaches run for cover."
– MICHELLE MALKIN, Fox News Channel

"Over just a few years, life in America has become indescribably more squalid, expensive, and dangerous. Like the dazzling disclosures in the final page of a gripping whodunit or the fascinating revelation of a magician's secrets, 'The Marketing of Evil' irresistibly exposes how it was done. It will elicit an involuntary 'Aha!' from you as you discover who did it and your soul will soar with optimism as you discover the only way we can undo it. In years to come Americans will acknowledge a debt of gratitude to David Kupelian for his honesty, courage, and laser-like insight in this must-read book."
– RABBI DANIEL LAPIN, Toward Tradition

"Marketers are out to get America's youth, and they'll stop at nothing to do it. In 'The Marketing of Evil,' David Kupelian treats parents to a rare insider look at exactly how our children – and adults too – are being lied to, confused, and seduced by radicals and phony experts. The game's over, folks – the con men have been exposed. I urge every parent to read this eye-opening book."
– REBECCA HAGELIN, the Heritage Foundation

"Did you ever want to know – I mean really know – how and why America is being transformed from a unified, Judeo-Christian society into a divided, false, murky, neo-pagan culture? Even if you think you know the answers to those questions, in fact, especially if you think you know the answers, you must read David Kupelian's 'The Marketing of Evil.' So clearly does it expose the incredible con game to which Americans have been subjected that it offers real hope – because when our problems come this sharply into focus, so do the solutions."
– JOSEPH FARAH, WorldNetDaily

"Excellent! Simply excellent. If you want to solidify your Christian worldview – or just understand what the culture war is all about – you owe it yourself to read David Kupelian's 'The Marketing of Evil.'"
– DONALD E. WILDMON, American Family Association
