Advertisers cleverly mask their products with promises that you’re buying ‘happiness’, ‘confidence’ and ‘character’ when really NONE of that can be bought or sold. Self-esteem is developed, nurtured and strengthened by YOU and you alone. (except with children – then parents and family members strongly influence the development of the child’s self-esteem).
REMEMBER this next time you feel ‘compelled’ to buy something. Also watch this first episode called The Century of the Self. (BBC film) Episode 1: The Happiness Machine. You’ll quickly learn how your thoughts/feelings have been manipulated by media and WHEN it all started. Edward Bernays is a misguided individual who misguided his fellow man and nation. He used psychological warfare on his own people and happily helped corporations employ his techniques.
