No worries, I never thought you were being racist.
Just putting things into perspective from my view, because the advert lacks some of the more traditional "fascist" elements, nevertheless there is
something interesting about it.
I'm thinking more NWO ideals linked with a product in a way that make both seem desirable and normal.
Perhaps I could say that "fascism" tends to turn off critical thought and heightens appeals to emotions very quickly, be it religious or political, or
In that sense I see a long connection in styles of advertising going back to propaganda, because what we actually and factually hear about the product
It's more a sense of breaking barriers (which my generation recalls with powerful symbols, like the Berlin Wall being hammered down - a flash of which
is actually in the clip) and future promise.
In this sense Germany then also becomes a symbol of a reunited world.
Perhaps the last vestiges of the Cold War being reunited in future through communication.
Of course, that's an elitist communication, appealing to a certain class and age, and not everyone found the economic freedom to enjoy global travel
just because the wall fell.
So it's the fascism of a corporation.
It's not just a product, but a social message that they have solved our problems and will solve them in future.
They're not just selling phones, they're virtually a religion or social movement.
That is corporate fascism, I suppose.
