In order to present you the entire supermarket scheme I have to start from the outside.
What are supermarkets made of? This may not apply to all countries, but the majority of the supermarkets are nothing but ugly metal warehouses with a few glass windows. It’s obvious that the architects of those ”buildings” are trying to keep the projects as cheap as possible so that more chains can be opened with as little commitment as possible. If something goes to hell, at least all that metal can be recycled, right? The keywords here are: quantity over quality. Profit over style.
Supermarkets never invest into a solid construction because it doesn’t fit their plans. They want to pay little and sell big. Thus, people are shopping in easy to maintain and construct warehouses that resemble military bases rather than constructions with tradition, character and style.
While the outside of a supermarket can tell you almost the whole story, the real fun starts once you get inside and start rubbing elbows with hungry humanoids ready to fight over nice deals. Usually, the first thing that hits you is either the sweets section or the fruits and vegetables corner. In the first case, we have an attack meant to exploit people’s addiction to processed food – an essential element of the 21st century. After all, we have all been nurtured with candies. As a kid half of my teeth melted into ruins from overeating with cheap bonbons.
Today, everybody craves that modern technological taste. We are essentially sugar junkies – even the little children. ”Mommy, buy me a waffle or I will cry like a little bitch,” says the stupid looking spoiled kid chewing on a plastic action hero figure.
The supermarket strategists know that and often put all sugar goods close to the entrance. Humanoids finish slavery and the first thing they see in the store is chocolate. What do we recognize in it? The same thing an addict identifies in a drug dose – a pain killer.
Vegan products represent another potent strategy. It works like this – fruits and vegetables are fresh, colorful and make for a nice image. When you enter the store and see a wonderful selection of those, your mind is tricked into believing that everything else is like this. Also, people associate fruits and vegetables with vitamins and health. This reinforces the idea in your mind that you are at a good place that will make you a stronger and better looking human as long as you are willing to cooperate (pay). That’s not the case. Nobody cares about your health condition. You are just a mindless walking bank that needs to be drained and loaded with sugar.
This is not planned by the staff of the supermarket. Those underpaid and exploited poor souls have no idea what’s really happening. They just ”do their jobs” as told by the upper management. The whole system is orchestrated by greedy entrepreneurs, marketing teams and psychologists. This is not a joke. They really rely on behavioral experts to determine how clients react to the various elements of the strategy.
The next crucial element is hiding the foods containing protein (meat, cheese, milk, nuts…etc.) at the back of the store so that you have to pass through loads of other garbage before getting to the essential. I realize that this may not be the case for all supermarkets and sometimes arrangement varies, but in most situations there is a lot of junk on your way to the better stuff that holds larger value. Why? Because the supermarket wants to sell you tons of garbage and make you exit with something extra usually sold at a discount. By the way, those discounts are nothing but a joke. First, they are always placed on poor quality products. Second, the supermarket is still making a nice profit since they buy goods in bulk for pennies from poor countries. Consequently, you have a bunch of people getting lost in a sea of cheap poor quality products.
I often laugh internally at the garbage humanoids around me put on the rolling mat before paying. The best part is when a couple of ultra fatsos spends a monthly salary in one day on junk food. It’s not uncommon for similar individuals to buy five chocolate bars, 10 gallons of Coca-Cola, 5 boxes of bonbons, 10 packs of pancakes, 5 packs of roasted peanuts, 5 six packs of beer and, of course, 5 kilos of shiny sweets for their little boy that already has a fat gut and tits bigger than those of most girls in the school.
Some people call pigs vacuum cleaners, but it goes both ways – humans can behave like pigs too. Supermarkets are one of the many things that give us an opportunity to prove this fact.
This post will not be complete without mentioning the criminal media and the celebrities who put their moronic Photoshopped faces on the door. The role of the media is to form the social opinion of a brand. People need to be persuaded that the supermarket can only do good. This is accomplished through commercial pushing idealistic imagery of happy families. Fuck that.
Next come the sellouts known as celebrities. Those are often worse than the bodybuilders who do g4p. Why? Because most of the people who sign PR contracts with supermarkets are already rich and well known in the public realm. In other words, they are not struggling to survive. They just want more and more. That’s why you see brain dead sport celebrities advertise all kinds of bad food. Those greedy bastards get paid more in a week than ordinary people make in a decade, and yet those guys still want more. Fuck that too.
The main problem comes from the lack of education and will power. Because of the ill system we always think of price rather than value. As a result, we have people who can’t see clearly. We only identify the shiny labels while the true core remains hidden. The result? We are taken by the elite. They see their clients as drones with wallets that need to be emptied through purchases of smiling candies, painted meat, sugar and stolen fruits and vegetables.
