Say goodbye to the simple things, you know those that families love to do together so much like maybe spending time together without dreaming about some new jeans or that new product that corporate has poisoned you with on the mainstream TV. Everything is so shallow, the look has been pasted into our underdeveloped brains so much so that we no longer look at the quality of anything. We don’t even care that that Polo shirt was made for around a buck is being sold to us for $70. People walk through the big box stores like crack addicts searching for a fix as they recognize the brands that they saw while watching their favorite show last night.
Everything is about how it looks on you
This also has allot to do with the opening of South American borders as well, places like Brazil and Venezuela are huge brand admirers. Injecting the U.S. population with some mixed culture makes perfect sense for the big corporations, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain and they will kill you with toxic products in order to do it. Auto makers are more focused on looks than quality as cars now are made to last as long as the warranty mileage and term. They lack on safety standards, they lack on quality parts and interiors, but they look cool and that is what is important.
What happened to the simple things in life are the best things
Big Corporate doesn’t seem to think so, they are all in banking on the fact that anti nuclear family works best, creates more spending and compulsive less informed buying of crap. When you are single and stupid you will buy anything, you will feed your dog toxic food and treats from China, or kill them with the flea medicine that CVS will not remove from their shelves. Single people will most likely spend more money on garbage brands in retail, they are less likely to look at or even care about ingredients. Yes there are some singles that care but families are much more likely to care for there families.
You have Subaru which uses love in their commercials and it is very nice to see that some companies still believe in love and the family. The simple things are usually enjoyed most by families together so with the war against the nuclear family, it is clear that the big companies do not want this. They make much more money dealing with single people, in fact surely families are the ones that become more frugal and save money but most singles blow it all on brands and whatever else consumerism brings. A husband is not likely coming home with a pair on hundred dollar jeans and having to explain to the wife that he felt like buying these jeans although they were saving for a new house.
