Is there fundamental goodness in marketing

Knowing what to buy

Bringing people together

Badness

  • Planting fear and desire in people’s minds to sell crappy consumer goods that people don’t actually need (you need a new bag, because yours is out of style, and out of style people are less successful and happy)
  • Recruiting people into terrorist organisations (join us in destabilising societies because it is basically what god wants)
