‘There Shall Be Signs’: Societal Declines, Love of Money Still the Root Pt 5

    While multi-national corporations depend on the public to continue purchase  of their products, regardless of their public relations programs, they still could care less about the lives and safety of their buyers, and that of Planet Earth.

Take the case of cat food manufacturers, who responded to published reports about domestic and feral cats decimating bird populations by running expensive ad campaigns showing beauty models kissing cats so people will buy more cat food.

paradisepet.net insists that pet food companies earn over $ 9 billion dollars  a year re-chemicalqzing animal waste (often diseased meat) and throwing it into a can.  bornfreeusa.com adds:  “What most consumers don’t know is that the pet food industry is an extension of the human food and agriculture industries.”

And with their billions of dollars, food companies pay millions to assure people that cats don’t kill birds, that cats shouldn’t be euthanized, that they are harmless, fun-loving pets.

In the same way, Coca-Cola, and other beverage companies, greatly resist recycling––regardless of what their public relations images may portray.  Rob Wohl writes in SumOfUs.org:  “Coca-Cola, the world’s largest beverage company, is suing to crush the world’s best recycling program.

“When a state government in Australia considered creating a 10-cent refund on recycling plastic bottles, Coca-Cola poured money into a misleading campaign to oppose the plan. Then, when common sense won out and the plan passed, Coke sued the government to stop the program.”

Wohl argues that Coca-Cola “runs similar campaigns all over the world.”  That corporation sells some 2 billion units of their beverages in plastic bottles soda a day.    It is well proven that non-recycled plastics usually wash out into oceans where seabirds mistake them for eatable food.

For years, researchers have found, and filmed, vast islands of floating plastics in ocean waters.  Wohl argues:  “The recycling program Coke is suing over, which is called a “container deposit scheme,” or a “bottle bill” in the United States, won’t cost Coca-Cola anything. Instead, consumers pay an extra ten cents for each bottle, which they can get back by recycling the used container.”

However “Coke claims the program is a tax that hurts its sales.”  This is the salient point––money above all else.  Wohl is raising a petition program on this issue.  Readers can contact him at SumOfUs.org.

In addition, it is time believers to take a stand: The beauty and life of God’s creatures cannot be sacrificed so that multi-billionaires can make more money.  Only anti-christian fiction argues that money is a god to be worshipped.  God’s Word, however, says, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows (1 Timothy 6: 10).”
