    ...and on the trolley, listening to some dubstep and lurking on EDF...and I decided that advertising doesn't contribute to society. We should get rid of it, perhaps by making it illegal. Because of the following notes, numbered and shit:

    1. The majority of advertising attempts to persuade consumers in ways that do not inform the consumer, for example, drinking Bud light will not make you popular, for instance.

    2. If I watch a million dollar Pepsi ad, then watch a million dollar Coke ad, the advertisements have cancelled out, with millions of dollars wasted. No, wait, that's not it...it's now down to what advert is more witty or eye catching for the same price..but for the record, Coke is superior to Pepsi.

    3. If you want to purchase a video game, do you go to Bethesda.com? Of course not. You get your information from a third party source. Perhaps a single website of product reviews could exist where people go to get information, paid for by the government or by subscription.

    I know what you're thinking...but watching advertisements pays for my tv!

    4. Yes, but the money Coke saves by not having to make advertisements would be passed on to the customer. (Or maybe the money is pocketed by Coke, but that would make Cola sales become a more attractive business, making more competitors, making prices lower.)

    In closing, It may be hard to imagine that prices would really lower significantly due to companies not having advertising budgets, but I believe it must. If advertising contributes nothing to society, then it is not useful.

    For example, if the government employed millions of people to dig holes and millions more to fill those holes, we would be only wasting effort. Same with advertising, advertisements cancel each other out, employing millions, but also wasting millions of people's effort.

    Your father may make a good living off hole digging, and it may therefore seem as though hole digging contributes to society. But his efforts are being wasted.

    Just my thoughts. My stream of consciousness about advertising while lurking EDF, and my attempt to get it on the record before I forget forever.

    Ah, your naivete is so amusing.

    You ever hear that one anecdote of a coke advertising meeting that took place on a train?

    A young ad exec asked why they were spending so much money on advertising given how famous Coke already was. The head of the Advertising department looked at him and asked "ok, so the train is up to speed now, why don't we just go and disconnect the engine?".

    Stormtrooper, you are a national socialist and don't deny it. The nationalism is not evident in this thread, but your socialist leanings definitely are.

    Not that there's anything wrong with that, I just think if I've ever seen someone hold views that fit the actual meaning of the word national socialism, it's you. The Nazis wish they would have been as much of a national socialist as you.

    As I've been saying for about two years on EDF (in its various forms) that more people have fascist leanings because man is inherently fascist.

    No, man has party leanings, because man is inherently PARTY HARD.

    Partying hard and fascism are not incompatible concepts. In fact a fascist government is a one party system.

    I'd recommend getting her off her face, and then ramming a turkey baster full of little The Member Formerly Known As Baya swimmers up the Stormy tunnel of love. Any kid that survives that environment will be a force to be reckoned with.

    On the contrary, if that people get paid to do that, we are creating an economy. That's how it works.

    Seems like you haven't quite grasped some of the basic tenets of advertising.

    Without advertising, cities would look incredibly dull. I mean, think of the future! No advertising, no sweet Blade Runner-style neon-gasms, and I definitely want Blade-Runner neon-gasms to happen.
