    Question Mass Advertising and Social Control


    Here is a clip from a brilliant series that came out in the U.S. a few years ago.
    In the scene , the advertising agency is trying to promote a cigarette company, this is set in 1960.
    One of the advertising guys says that there has been mass manipulation against the tobacco companies. But here is the question, In 1960 and for a while afterwards, the tobacco companies had massive monopoly power. The Health Industry was only in its infancy, so who was manipulating the market against the vastly powerful tobacco companies?
    I doubt sometimes whether a quiet and unagitated life would have suited me - yet I sometimes long for it.

    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.
