What do you believe?
Who is the evilest of them all?
Today’s blog is more like a reflection post inspired by a heated conversation around a dinner table. I’m really keen to get your input.
Who do you think is the most evil corporation in history that is currently operating/ making huge profits under the guise of being a “positive brand”? Who is most invested in keeping us sick?
I’ve listed a few that come to mind.
Monsanto – solving world hunger
McDonalds – affordable fun family food place. #ImLovinIt
Coca-Cola – open happiness
List yours in the comments section below….
Pfizer – dedicated to the improvement of human life.
Bayer – science for a better life
Ps. Bayer (German drugs and crop chemicals company) acquired Monsanto. Mmmm…. does that make them doubly evil?
Here’s an article about the 10 most evil corporations we buy from everyday: https://listverse.com/2013/02/21/10-evil-corporations-you-buy-from-everyday/
Does that make the people working for these companies evil? I know some great people working for such companies. Isn’t the main shareholder of McDonalds & KFC in South Africa the President of the country? Can he still be considered great?
Is it acceptable to “make a good honest living” even if it means working for one of these companies? If you are providing for your family is that all that matters? A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do, right?
Does it make us evil if we support these companies when it’s convenient for us? (like buying the vegan burger at Steers like I did the other day. I guess worse is buying a real burger/ part of cow at Steers? Steers is South Africa’s home equivalent to McDonalds/ Burger King) Thoughts?
How are we going to make genuine change? By condemning these companies and publicly shaming them and the people who work for them? Or by trying to extend a hand and find a way to work together towards something better? Like buying their vegan burgers… It’s a tough one.
If I had to choose the most evil corporation in the history of the world. It’s definitely McDonalds.
They are a child friendly combination of:-
- Factory farming/ Mass slaughter/ Animal holocaust – they have been responsible for the violent murder and violation (rape) of BILLIONS of animals. Think about how many Big Macs and Egg McMuffins they have sold! When you say it like that it sounds so innocent and nice.
- Monsanto – have you ever thought about how they get their fries to be how they are? Monsanto probably a close 2nd to McDonalds in the evil-ometer, is benefiting too from all those Macky D fries we inhale. Mmmm tastes good still?! The earth is being crippled right before our eyes. For a good looking chip!
- Coca-Cola – Coca-Cola has probably single-handedly infected the population of the world with an addiction to sugar and contributed greatly to making the world’s population sick not to mention the plastic endemic that the ocean is enduring just so the “black disease” can go down smoothly in a straw. (We can’t blame Coca-Cola for all straws but certainly they account for millions and millions of them!)
Is that the kind of happiness we want for ourselves, our children and the world?
Good old Ronald McDonald who every kid in the world basically knows and worships has encouraged more consumption of murder and violation and made it fun for kids.
I gotta give it to you Ronald McDonald. I don’t know who your PR company is. But they are fucking geniuses! Talking of which, can they be considered good people for helping to spread the lies and violence?
I believe Ronald McDonald will be remembered alongside Hitler and the Apartheid government and the like one of these days. To be honest I think Ronald and good old Colonel Sanders from KFC have killed and exploited and traumatized and destroyed way more living beings than Hitler could ever dream!
And yet we keep taking our kids there? Are we all that sick that we can’t see this?
Can we not feel anymore?
I would love to hear from you.
I ask these questions because I really care. Please post your own questions or thoughts after reading this.
