The Daily Post Prompt : False
In response to daily post’s prompt : False
We are living in a world where there is a struggle between real and false. More and more we see false is replacing everything real. Take for example the metal gold, while it’s price is soaring in the stock market, ordinary people who at one time could afford to buy a gold necklace are now satisfied with an imitation, it’s done so well that you’d never be able to pinpoint which is real and which is false.
Whenever I hear the word faut fur i.e, fake fur, it disturbs me. I’m satisfied knowing when I’m unable to afford real, I won’t go for fake. To me it’s better to buy something which tells me it is real, cotton, linen, or silk. I do understand fur is not something people want to buy because of the number of animals killed to produce fur coats. I’m pleased we’d save the animals from extinction. What troubles me is why on earth should we buy coats or parkas made of fake fur. I am curious to know what kind of material they use to produce coats that look like fur but in reality they aren’t.
The food industry scared us by saying butter was bad for us and they produced the imitation of butter called margarine, now word is around that margarine is bad for health. We the consumers are always deceived by the producers who make it their business to make us unhealthy, and we are naive enough to believe them.
This is why the word false irritates me.
