An interesting perspective about political advertisements
Right off the bat, I wish to say I more or less consider myself to be a libertarian.
Furthermore this is meant to be sort of a though-provoking discussion.
On the news, ads and commercials we quite often see politicians talking about how much good the state has done to the people. However this most of the time ends up being propaganda, as politicians and governments tend to lie a lot.
Now, what I found terrifying is the following: the other day my 7(!) year old cousin just word for word repeated a commercial video about a fridge or something. And personally I find it really sad that even the youngest ones can be influenced by corporations this much. In my humble opinion children should not be influenced by politcal ads nor “business commercials”.
My questions would be:
We can all agree that political ads should not have any effect on children whatsoever. And if you support business commercials and not the political ads, dont you think it is hypocritical to support one but condemn the other?
Dont you think advertisements of any sort should be regulated such that the this sort “memorizing effect” will be minimalized?
To give me personal opinion, what I heavily dislike about capitalism are the commercials. They are almost anywhere, where they are let to exist.
P.S: I am not an english speaking native, so apologies if its a bit bad on the grammar side.
