Clearly, there was a "War on Children" in the 1970s. This was a covert and widespread conspiracy to infiltrate our minds with complicated subliminal ideas and confuse us with non-sensical connections. If you're old enough, you remember the nuclear war film from middle school. It told us that we would:
1. Probably have to be in a shelter with people we didn't know.
2. Put on a radiation suit and take freshly dead people outside every morning, even if they were your loved ones
3. Determine who was too far gone and immediately cease care
4. Assign someone for latrine duty to discard human waste outside in the radiation zone
Obviously, sneaking this in between Shock and Its Symptoms and Compound Fractures and Splints was a way to subliminally terrorize us.
I recently found an old chemistry textbook that also seems to have a hidden agenda to cause disturbing dreams and paranoid delusions. I especially like the text innocently placed like a caption that reads "Flesh is Grass". What in the name of God does that mean? It sounds like line from A Nightmare on Elm Street. It's creepy and clearly written by someone very, very sick.
There is a super strange tongue diagram that makes me want to try to find these alien growths on my tongue and scrape them off. And finally a bizarre diagram that tells me poison gas and soldiers equals a tasty dinner. WTF? I like the seemingly harmless and nice illustrations of disparate elements (or are they subliminal metaphorical symbols that might be used to "activate" us in the future?).
If you have any doubt about this evil subliminal campaign, consider the McDonald's characters: Hamburglar, Grimace, Mayor McCheese, Birdie the Early Bird, Captain Crook, Fry Kids, and Uncle O'Grimacey
