Obey Clothing Under a Microscope
Since the 80’s “Obey” started out as a street art with the picture of Andre the giant posing with the writing obey. Both image and wording…Obey became synonymous with a clothing brand of today’s market. The Obey brand is artistic with rich graphical appeal where the modern youths find it “cool”. The brand is flirting more into symbolisms that are seemingly aesthetic with an allure of glamour which is being promoted by music artists of today.
Now Let Us Take a Closer Look Behind the Message, “Obey Clothing”
First and foremost, what is the dictionary meaning of the word OBEY? It means to submit or conform in action, to be obedient or agree to obey (some guiding principle, impulse, one’s conscience). Having those terms in mind, mix those meaning with the symbolism that many of us barely understands and that’s where the concerns will start to arouse. The fact my kids will see pop stars wearing clothing which has the insignia of the infamous “Devil’s Horn” or the all seeing eye of masonry elite groups. What is it that we are obeying behind the ritualistic symbols? Not having the basic understanding of symbolism and promoting it is in fact mindless of an act to support. The fact Obey purports these ritualistic arts of secret society brands is indicative of its mere commands that one must obey an order that we do not understand or know anything about.
The Science of Today’s Media Manipulation Using Symbolisms
The word slavery comes to mind when I think of obeying through manipulations and conformity through control. The media uses the power of psychology on various levels to impress upon both our subconscious and conscious minds to obey into their ideals and cryptograms whilst deliberately using colours to attract various personal emotive responses to their desired effect. If you unknowingly buy blood diamonds that fuel the genocide in central Africans countries then you are supporting that regime whether it is direct or indirect. In that, we are feeding energies into something that is in one hand, portrays aesthetic art and yet it has a darker meaning for an agenda in which promotes modern slavery.
The term slavery denotes According to Oxford Dictionary the term Slave is defined as “a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them” as in the case of the United States during the 18th and 19th centuries where slavery was a legalized institution. Oxford dictionary also defines slavery as “a person who works very hard without proper remuneration or appreciation”. It also describes a slave as “a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something” or “a device, or part of one, directly controlled by another” excessively dependent upon or controlled by something” or “a device, or part of one, directly controlled by another”. Base those definitions, we are in part or wholesomely withdrawing our birth right to think freely and be REVOLUTIONARY with a unique sense of nature. To conform isn’t a bad thing unless it is manipulated for an agenda which was not purchased as advertised in the first place. So what are we OBEYING?
