Advertising isn’t going to disappear just like an abusive spouse or lover won’t disappear. Ads will continue to hit consumers on every level. However, you the consumer still have some power in this relationship. Just learn how to recognize ads that are trying to manipulate and exploit you. Then ignore them. Buy based on consumer need not fancy ads. Avert from advertising. Don’t fall into a situation where you like an ad so you get hooked on a product. If anyone asks what happened to you when they see your marks from advertising do not recite for them the age old excuse of ‘I walked into a door’ or ‘I fell into my TV’.
Break up with advertising. You’re too good for it anyways.
