Think Of Me As Evil - Opening the Ethical Debates in Advertising

Depression, over consumption, global warming, economic inequality and a seemingly never ending list of problems haunt our society as we try to produce a livable and just social network around the world. Attacked individually these issues seem insurmountable, and yet this report by the PIRC and the WWF suggests that another simpler issue might be at the heart of each of these individual problems. You can guess what that issue is by the nature of this blog but I suggest reading this report for a better understanding of the systemic problems created by an overabundance of desire creation materials promoted by the advertising industry.
