Paradise on Earth, 26, care for weak persons

More health tips coming up.  In the last few years, I've started eating some healthy foods and taking some supplements, etc, but who knew yogurt was so badass?

Maybe she's talking about Greek yogurt.

Paradise on Earth, 24, Beautiful is a baby

We're still on the theme of family/not family on this round.  Replace bars with board games!  That'll be an interesting bill...

New at the bottom of this flyer: "MAKE COPIES. It appears that I've taken that to heart!

Paradise on Earth, 23, Afraid to be celebate?

Considering the naive, vaguely kind tone in number 22, this number 23 takes a decidedly ruder (but equally naive) look at homosexuality.  I have to admit that I had high hopes for number 23, but alas.

Paradise on Earth, 22, The flowering of civilization

You just have to love the naive concepts toward relationships in this one.  Having just looked over some of the higher-numbered flyers today, it's amazing how quickly and thoroughly the focus changes to lamp post "subliminals," doctors "self-inflicting," and various kinds of substances one might consider wearing under hats...

Paradise on Earth, 20, People are our best resource

Sorry about the tiny font they used on this one.  Fortunately, only numbers 20 and 21 use this font, and then we get back to an easier-to-read font.

Paradise on Earth, 18, Let free enterprise thrive

I must admit that this vision of "shopping malls" as places of random trades going amok in the hallways sounds pretty sweet to me--but I'm probably envisioning something closer to Burroughs' "Interzone."

Paradise on Earth, 13, Chalice of Christ

The major themes of "Chinese Subliminals" and "Self Infliction" begin to take shape here, though they're not mentioned by name yet.  And the original fixation with alternative medicine/healing stuff disappears for now to make room.  I wonder who we could get to build this huge "dirt concrete wall along our borders?"

Paradise on Earth, 12, 999 AD was similar

At this point, in my opinion, things start to heat up in these flyers.  There is a pretty amazing diversity of subjects in this edition:

Paradise on Earth, 11, Care for the weak...

She didn't swing the 3-column format this time around.  By the way, the author (or distributor?) of these flyers is a registered lobbyist in NE representing some kind of "Kindness Schools" organization based in Iowa.

I wonder if "Chrisma" is a typo?  "Chrisma Healing" is a pretty obscure concept--"Charisma Healing" is a relatively more common idea: group prayer, basically.  Chrisma, on the other hand, would deal with annointing.  But considering all of the references to slathering yourself in honey and various substances, maybe Chrisma is what she/they intend, after all...

Paradise on Earth, 3, Hold hands instead of exterminate Americans

We'll be done with the medical-related "paradise" flyers soon.  You'll notice the subtle shift from "helpful" healing ideas in this flyer toward anti-Obama sentiments.  They begin to diverge toward other forms of paranoia in #6, and from there, they go in more crazy directions than you could ever imagine...
