The problem lies in the greed most companies have in acquiring the majority of the market. Next thing you know, the logos are everywhere. This is one of the major things that seperates Burning Man from just another festival.

Me too. I hate advertising, I think that it's banalizing our culture fasther than anything else, and I hate that they've organized it so that lies are "protected speech." I don't even listen to radio very often, I hate ads so much, not to mention the pure blandness that prevails musically. I'm still suseptible to the tv habit, but I do love th mute. And advertising to kids is much more damaging to them than anything they could see on the playa--life in all its messy glory trumps viscious lies everytime. to cross postwaltsnipe wrote:I'm one of those people who drive other's crazy by muting the TV frantically so as not to hear one nano-second of advertising, changing radio stations in the car at the merest hint of a commercial, rail against superimposed "vitual" ads during football games, etc.
