The Yes Men

Have you heard of The Yes Men? They perform satire and play out spoofs on our current systems. They pretend to be powerful people and spokespersons for prominent organizations and present outrageous possibilities to huge corporations and governments in an attempt to point out how dehumanizing our current beliefs and actions are and can become.

An example of 'outrageous possibilities' was their presentation stating that human bodies could be "rendered" in order to replace our use of oil. And you know what the scary part is..... it was that many of these so called leaders-of-industry believed them. They were taking the idea and were immediately beginning to think about how it could be implemented. WTF?!?!?!?!

ohmygawd!! Its so scary.... so scary that so many of these so called smart people believed them!! A Twilight Zone nightmare coming true!!
