Advertising and marketing doesn’t just apply to products that we buy, it also includes ideas and beliefs. If “they” can persuade you to buy what they are selling, you are hooked as a consumer (customer) and will blindly follow them with no questions asked. Why? Because you think you have gained something that you didn’t have before. Politics and religion are prime examples of this type of marketing approach but it includes every aspect of our society.
Food for thought… or not.
