I believe that advertising, while not the root of all evil, is certainly one of the major branches. I want to form a cohesive argument to convince others that all product advertising must be halted, and the whole industry made illegal/put to death/tortured at the very least. I like things in black and white, so you can vote your opinion as to whether advertising is evil or not, to be clear I'm only in reference to advertising to make people buy stuff, and maybe vote for stuff. What in your opinion is a benefit of advertising? What would be the effect of removing the industry? Would the little man do better or worse? Would large corps hold as much market share? Would the world be a better place?
