Lecture: A Serious Plan to End Advertisement

"Advertisement is to capitalist society what propaganda was to communist society".

These words are from Sven Lindqvists book "Reklamen är livsfarlig" (Eng: Advertisement Is Lethal), published in 1957 and more or less making him journalist non grata.

Obviously, we failed to heed Lindqvists warning, and advertisement is more ubiquitous than ever. In this talk, I will describe the various problems with advertising, why we don't need it, and how it undermines democracy. I will even present my plan to stop it.
