Advertising makes you unhappy. By design. That’s how it works.
Advertising makes who you are, what you have, or how you live seem inadequate, incomplete – lacking (wanting) a fix.
Advertising makes you unhappy with life as it is. You buy what you think resolves the issue. Rinse and repeat.
Advertising brings dukkha to life.
Advertising consumes the consumer … while the consumer consumes the planet.
