Eliminate\Reduce Advertising and Marketing Globally
In developed socities where Tv, Radio, and Internet are common luxuries in a household we are influenced daily by biased opinions and thoughts on cultural trends as to what is "Stylish, Good, and Acceptable".
Advertising in essense is to create a trend in which a product is selling itself based off a mindset that is bestowed upon a society.
To often kids in particular are creating judgments on other kids based off what "brand" their parents can afford. This particular style of judgement dosn't end with their childhood people carry this misguided sense of worth deep into adulthood.
This is why we need limited influences on our youth. Until we disolve this "barbie" lifestyle we have influenced this world with we have no real future. As materialistic items should not be what drive humanities existance. Living life for "things" is a plague on the earth and will continue to hinder our species until it is abolished.
"How will people sell things if they can't advertise" I'm not saying stores shouldn't be allowed to put up signs for people to see. What I'm saying is we don't need the same commercial for a toy played 10 times in 1 hour in attempts to brainwash children in thinking the toy is a MUST HAVE in order to be cool.
We need to start eliminating bad programming at its very essence if we wish to have humans being individuals and not a programmed society.
