A grain of salt in a bag of sugar, nichodemus. The proportion of truth to lies is greatly unbalanced.

Doesn't mean we should entirely reject ads as a mere caricature of real life.

Just stating my opinion on the title of the thread and not everything else that is going on, mainly because I am not motivated to read all 9 pages and respond to all of them. Anyway I personally can't stand the world we live in call it angst or anything else, but I have a reason instead of just flying off the handle. To further clarify, as a whole I can't stand the world we live in. Some people I like and some things I like (nature for example). It is just humans have a way of just screwing everything up and making a mess of things in a short time. Sure we have done some great things, it just gets on my nerves at how cruel people can be (I am not saying I am some perfect angel or even that I am better then someone, just annoyed).

Life is super glue waiting for you to get stuck and struggle on. (Hey a good analogy!)

The ME has always and rightfully should hate them heh.....It's just far more dangerous now IMO because of the turmoil they have in political transition; the people are feeling the power they have for once.

Thanks to the Internet in good part. Now people can help and educate each other from every parts of the World. No wonder evil Corporations such as the music industry (Mafia) and diverse governments tries to censor and police it.

If you think paint such broad strokes of corporations, why do you use the Internet, an Internet device, which are all made by corporations? MNCs and large firms have been disastrous on many accounts, but basic economic theory and history have shown that they are often more beneficial than harmful.

That's a dumb question. You can't compare the Internet which bring many good things and opens us to knowledge, narrows the borders with the music industry or drugs and insurance companies who abuse and treat their customers like garbage. I mean come on.
