I Grew Up With This Sh*t!
All my life I have watched the steady march of the brainwashing industry known as advertising. The very best are informative and amusing. The worst are doom laden, guilt evoking and fearful. Bear in mind these same people run Government propaganda, too. That is virtually always, except during elections, the latter Armageddon format.
My rant is about this ridiculous soap dispenser advert of recent weeks. For pities sake, everywhere we go we touch things. Toilets, handshakes, car doors, trains, buses. How in God's name can you you not touch things every minute of every day. What do we have an immune system for? Of course, if we can sell your own body fluids back to you as "clean" water, there's nothing we can't con you out of. Be it Government taxes or commercial lies, or whatever.
What is your favourite confidence trick? Mine was always National Insurance to pay for health and pension. Just a tax, now. A whole multi-trillion business exists to sell us the most horrendous muck.
"Fries with that, Sir or Madame!"
