A common mantra of mine concerns the power of Madison Avenue to massage the masses. Pay them enough and they can probably solve many problems facing the USA and the world.

They could reshape the food industry and slash our national healthcare anchor.

..but Madison Avenue works for the corporations with the most money, their lies and deceptions protected by the 1st amendment.

The corporations with the money to spend on Madison Avenue are 'in it to win it.' They know the best way to make obscene profits is to get people hooked early on consumerist crap, unhealthy food, and unhealthy life styles.

..and yeah, Madison Avenue has its equivalents in just about every nation on the planet.

Imagine a world in which truth in advertising was an absolute requirement? Food could only be promoted for its true nutritional value. No more sexual innuendo in advertising non-sexual products?
