Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour
Episode #052: America Consumes Itself
This show is a satirical and sardonic look at American consumerism, our addiction to television and the radicalization of our government and many of the people who subscribe to the extreme beliefs of one or the other. The fact that we have 31 flavors of ice cream to choose from, an infinite spectrum of entertainment options and society that glorifies the indignities of its citizens, The fact that we are pitted against one another though the use of media coercion and propaganda and that we willfully comply with the acting regime as if we had no other choice. This show is meant to sharpen your thinking and hopefully open paths of dialogue where we can engage in our differences with the hope of gaining insight from one another, rather than automatically dismissing the view of those who do not believe as you do. From that, I am a party of one. Join me and we are two, three….and maybe, just maybe, a way of existing harmoniously towards a better future…..or you can just buy something to make yourself feel better about a system that abandoned you long ago. The choice is yours. In the meantime, enjoy this sarcastic blend of music and comedy.
