The Ongoing Capitalist Apocalypse
Hmm. So I've been thinking for a long time about how capitalism handles externalities poorly, including social ones, and this article is a perfect example. I would say it goes deeper than this, though. Advertising in general is about getting people to buy your shit, regardless of if it's good for them, and it often screws with people's ideas while it does so - usually some variation of "you're not good enough, buy our shit". :/
