I don’t know if I believe in democracy any more.
Everyone has the right to vote.
This makes us equal?
This guarantees a representative government?
Ah Hell naw!
Marketing is the art of convincing people to spend money that they do not have on things they do not need.
Democracy is where the person with the most effective marketing campaign gets to be President.
So what we end up with is the poorest of the poor believing the marketing drivel of the richest of the rich and voting marketers into power.
All the marketer has to do is leverage off the desperation of the poor in the marketing strategy and then keep them that way with very minor improvements (for future marketing reference).
We might as well let ad agencies register as political parties!
