Advertising - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
Advertising has woven the love-nexus and the money-nexus together in ways that confuse the soul, that is the magnet to the moral compass; we need the practitioners of this art to educate themselves about each and make the necessary changes.
In an era that needs to tackle pollution, targeted advertising (that in itself is an abuse of personal data) that uses psychological profiling to increase consumerism needs to end. Consumerism and pollution are directly correlated from production, to packaging to transport and disposal. The age of "Buy, buy, buy," needs to give way to a more grown up consideration of planet Earth and the needs of all of her inhabitants - of which humans are only one species.
Advertising accelerates the movement of goods and people, sustainability requires the opposite. And so as we transition into a sustainable era we need to evolve new approaches that morph us from the money-nexus to the love-nexus, that bring us to safety.
