yeah bill is right too.
Here's why:

imagine all the influence power that is very real, being applied to making people part with their money for stupid shiat they don't need and won't actually make them happy.
Imagine it was being applied to influencing people to not be racist fooknutts or intolerant hater butt whiffs, or encouraging people to want a world of haves and have nots to measure their own self worth by, or to be more selfless and caring of others around them.


but no this clearly very real and serious power of influcen, is just applied to hawking junk and taking people's money and carrying on with an unsustainable chase the status culture.

If you have this power, and that's what you do with it, killing yourself is the most humanity improving act you could undertake.

Because PSAs aren't a thing that already exist, more than pay for themselves the way advertising does, and dismissing all ads as "making people part with their money for stupid shiat they don't need and won't actually make them happy" isn't oversimplifying it in the least. You can make spending money on virtually anything look like shiat if you say it could have been spent on anti-racism. That's just scratching the surface with what's so farking dumb about this post.

Oh, not to mention that you're posting on an ad-supported site while talking about an album and performer that were of course advertised.

Summary of your post - "yet you participate in it, curious.  I am very intelligent."

Last i check the only opt out on life as it is when you were born to it is suicide.

the challenge of life is to be able to observe the truth of it, while having no choice but to live with what it is like it or not.

To understand the motivation and purpose of marketing, not just parting the monye as the one easy example to give, but influencing for personal self interest gains.Sure PSAs are a thing, but it is the pier chart of resource and effort expended.We are far what the middle bell is not what some tiny side of bell fraction is.So if our public influences messages are by and large, for my private self interest do what i want, and far far less, for the good of the future of us all do this/don't do this.Then we do make it clear what matters to us most in that, and it's dominated by the selfish messages not the humanity improving ones.
