The Acceptable Norms of Today Are The Deranged Insanities of Tomorrow - Or Are They?

We don't need to go very far back in time to see what was once acceptable in society is now frowned upon by the masses. In fact, many argue that many past tendencies were deranged insanities of that time. But do things really change through successive generations?

Take for example the 1949 TV commercial from Camel cigarettes.

Part of the commercial states in no uncertain terms that "time out for many men of medicine usually means just long enough to enjoy a a repeated national survery, doctors in all branches of medicine, doctors in all parts of the country were asked, What cigarette do you smoke Doctor? Once again, the brand named most was camel."

Many of us will look as such commercials claiming deranged thinking and even insanity to suggest that Doctors were recommending cigarettes to their patients.

In another shocking 1950s cold cream commercial, they made dirt radioactive enough to register on a geiger counter which was then applied to a models face. "The geiger counter proved that Dorothy Gray's Salon Cold Cream cleanses up to 2 1/2 times more thoroughly than any soap or other cleansing cream tested!"

It seems unfathomable in today's societal norms to even think of applying radioactive material to a woman's face to justify it's effectiveness. Or is it?

Today, we openly promote genetically modified foods, toxic food additives, dangerous drugs with fatal side effects, poisonous cancer causing fluoride in our water, lethal therapies such as psychiatry, and vaccines with neurotoxins, carcinogens, immunotoxins and sterility agents to be injected into our children.

So one might ask, do successive generations ever really learn from the deranged and harmful ideals of previous generations? It seems the answer is a resounding NO!
