19. not getting your point

Are you saying that marketing is a scam? If so, I think you want to bring down our whole capitalist system.

Although I would agree with you that anything that creates needless demand for things that the taxpayers fund either directly or indirectly, should be banned. That would include ads for pharmaceutical drugs, which are enormously expensive and may bring down our whole Medicare system. However, I would not object to pharmaceutical ads if individuals had to bear the cost, because the rules of supply and demand would be in play.
