Pharmaceutical companies take advantage of stress and misery

“We already live in a society of drugged people. People are no longer able too or seem unwilling to deal with stress and life. The higher our stress levels the more we seem to run for shelter from the real world hiding ourselves in our homes while staying glued to TV sets and worthless social media for our escapes. This has become a weapon in the arsenal of the pharmaceutical companies to ensure you compliance in taking more pills.” NYT comment

Advertising should have respect for real human needs

“Change, and an end to ecological debt, demands that we ‘untell’ the stories told every day on behalf of the car in a thousand newspaper and magazine adverts. These adverts are, for the car industry, the equivalent in propaganda to Stalin’s state propaganda posters, newsreels and artwork of happy smiling workers. They hide a brutal reality.” Andrew Simms, Resurgence, Sept 2005.
