Get used to adverts, they are part of the beautiful dog eat dog capitalist society we want
but learn how to ignore them! Posted Feb 25, 2012 2:30 PM
Exactly. Advertisements are a part of the capitalist world, where companies will dance, beg, threaten or worship as necessary to get those last kina out of your pockets and into your hands.
The fast food and toy businesses will try and jump over parents to reach the kids directl, so that the kids, next time they're in town with their parents, beg for unhealthy foods..... only because they saw TV advertisements that promoted these foods as 'cool' or good for you.
The high tech companies will try to convince you that you simply can't be a happy human being on earth if you don't have the latest electronic gadget.
Get used to this. The process has impoverished millions in the developed countries as people get into greater and greater personal debt because they simply can't resist all the goodies that are advertised on TV. Greater personal debt leads to greater personal stress, disharmony at home and all that. All because they couldn't resist the propaganda and brainwashing that companies try to do through television, radio, and newspaper advertising.
But that's the real world and it's not going to go away. The only way to survive this satanic influence is to simply learn to resist. Practice ignoring advertisements so that you can keep the money in your pocket to use for more important things and the stupid and gullible people amongst us (there are plenty) can fall victim to the advertising messages and end up with no money at all.
Also teach your kids at an early age to resist the evil.
Go to a developed country and find caring families and parents of middle class or higher income and you'll find that they often are very strong about learning how to resist advertising and teach that resistence to their kids.
If you're a parent and you don't teach your kids to resist advertising, the advertisers will end up bossing your kids, not you.
