That's true.

The advertisers will use ANY device to capture your attention and keep it. They will use any content that will lure you within striking distance of their propaganda.
Yes that's true. but also....Well, if you let them .

For me, well they can advertise all they want but I do not give in! They can send all the catalogues in the mail week after week and with their sales, I will still not cave in, Unless there is something I need and it happens to be on sale, then I'll buy - if I need it. Actually what I don't like is that you buy something and the following week its on special! with that you can't win

All of us are sufficiently vain (and deluded) to think we can watch the programs without buying the products. We are wrong. And the advertisers have the data to prove it.

Speak for yourself.

They know that they govern your buying and they can PROVE it to the companies that hire them.

LOL!                                                                                              

They haven't come across me

Can you doubt their power?

And who's faults that? Why do they have this power?

I believe that any educated person who learns advertising and pyschology will also have that power. 

Why else would any sane person drive thru a McDonalds and buy an overpriced meat patty of grease and salt with a pennies worth of lettuce to feign healthiness wrapped in a tasteless non-nutritional piece of bleached bread? And an order of grease-soaked starch as well?! And then eat this mess while driving down a crowded freeway?

If this desciption doesn't put people off, then nothing will, LOL  

I don't know, I like my McDonald but I don't let them rule me

One cannot escape the conclusion that participating in commercial radio/TV is to surrender oneself to blatant manipulation.

Ah, well if you know their manipulation and why they are doing it,why fall for it? And is it so hard to leave the room in a commerical break? or just let it fly over your head. I listen but that's just it, only listen I don't fall for any crap, anyway some ads are cool

You become submissive to a merciless master. A master who, regardless of his smiling charm, will feed your discontent and steal your purse.

Ah, again, speak for yourself.

What can be done! Resist and find alternatives.

Have done

Turn away from the crap. Reject the ads. Think for yourself.

F

Have done and do
