A worrying yet perfectly plausible trend observed online over recent months involves what appears to be an increasing number of war and conflict related ads being displayed in the Facebook newsfeed. Despite having never played, downloaded or demonstrated any online interest in such battle gaming exploits, my daily Facebook feed and sidebar is becoming increasingly cluttered with unsightly and unrelated combat and conflict themed ads.
Yes, Facebook is now a colossal advertising platform and yes, there is of course the option to remove and even report these ads but that is not the point. The point is that these garish images designed to make money from glorifying war and bloodshed are being displayed in the first place and ‘conveniently’ at a time when the Western war machine is once again beating it’s deathly drums, and if ads like these are showing to someone who has expressed no interest whatsoever in such subject matter, then you can be certain they and others like them will also be displaying to millions of other users around the globe who maybe unwittingly have.
Users perhaps, who unlike myself, may be far more impressionable and subconsciously susceptible to these mesmerisingly designed and boldly captioned creations and who could become accustomed to seeing such combat related fictional media in their daily Facebook ‘fix’ which would of course run alongside any other conflict based ‘news’ material coming from the corporate propaganda outlets endorsing the military industrial complex.
Below are just some examples of the ads that have been repeatedly popping up in my newsfeed for some time now despite me having never clicked any of them. Notice the language used – “Soldiers” “Domination” “Nuclear” “Conflict”…
With yet more war just around the corner and future global conflict inevitably playing a huge part in the illuminati’s divide & conquer agenda, are these ads to “like” games designed to desensitise people to warfare merely coincidence? With something as powerful and immensely popular as Facebook, I highly doubt it.
