“Electronic Soup Cards”
That term, “electronic soup cards“, is simply brilliant. It is powerfully brilliant because it is entirely correct.
As a person who searches for simple word assemblies to covey significant issues, I must admit that concise terminology is the best turn of words I’ve heard in years.
Factually, if the number of American people on EBT or SNAP welfare benefits had to line up for soup and meals (instead of just get money on an electronic card for use anywhere), there would be massive lines, miles-long lines, all day and all night in hundreds of thousands of soup kitchens nation-wide. Such visibility would make the soup lines of the great depression seem insignificant by comparison.
The EBT and SNAP cards are exactly that, “Electronic Soup Cards”.
[…] Apologists for the status quo contend the last eight years couldn’t possibly be classified as a depression. The narrative of economic recovery has been peddled by corporate media mouthpieces, feckless politicians, Too Big To Trust Wall Street bankers, Federal Reserve puppets, and government apparatchiks flogging manipulated data as proof of economic advancement. They point to the lack of soup lines as proof we couldn’t be experiencing a depression.
First of all, if there were soup lines, the corporate media would just ignore them. If they don’t report it, then it isn’t happening. Secondly, the soup lines are electronic, as the government downloads the “soup” onto EBT cards so JP Morgan can reap billions in fees to run the SNAP program. Just because there are no pictures of starving downtrodden Americans in shabby clothes waiting in soup lines, doesn’t mean the majority of Americans aren’t experiencing a depression. (read more)
This. Exactly this.
“Electronic Soup Cards” perfectly encapsulates the systemic lie behind the economic conditions sold to the American electorate.
“Electronic Soup Cards” hide a reality, that if truly visible -if people actually had to line up for meals created as a result of that governmental expenditure- would crush the professional political apparatchik within hours.
Not within months, weeks or days…. within HOURS.
The only difference between the historical soup lines (featured in imagery above) and today, is a reality that today’s soup lines are invisible.
That, my friends, is a cognitive paradigm shift.
“Electronic Soup Cards” is the perfect term to instantaneously deconstruct the Liberal/Fabian ideologues. That is a powerful term, and so easy to clarify to the disconnected political observer.
A term we should all begin using immediately.
