Advertising: Are We Happy Yet?

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.
