The Subversive Use of Sacred Symbolism in the Media
'Have you ever wondered whether the billion-dollar artifice of the media, and of the advertising conglomerates, has any lasting negative effect on your mind and behavior, or whether the young are particularly affected by the all-pervasive presence of ads? Is it rational to expect large ad-corporations to jeopardize their vast monopolies by becoming more responsible in the future?
Can Madison Avenue agencies and other "Hidden-Persuaders" ever be held accountable, if it is discovered and proven that the glamorous creations of their industry do indeed have lasting negative effects on our minds and behavior? Is the new designer disease of our age "Affluenza," and is the consumer the consumed, in these times of excess and chronic commercialism?'
