Any word that becomes a marketing tool is either suspect or past its prime. Case in point, "natural."

It originates from the United Nations Agenda 21 program. Now just about every local county has a sustainable development land use program designed to separate Americans from their current property and shuffle them all into densely populated villages. Americans have no input at all as far as what goes on in their communities. It is all decided ahead of time. All the infrastructure is financed by the taxpayer and it is the government and the non-profit government agencies and planners who profit. They even use sneaky consensus building methods to make people feel guilty if they object to it. One of them is the Delphi technique.

Natural, organic, free-range, green, sustainable etc etc

The corps & gov't are pros at taking a good idea and all the terminology associated with it and then totally screwing it up so it no longer even remotely resembles what it started as. Forget about rewriting history, these ba$tards rewrite the dictionary! But, hey, at least they made a hefty profit in the meantime, right??
