We live in an addictive culture where advertising by capitalist corporations subtly and not-so-subtly encourages kids and young and old people to become addicted to sugar, soda, fast food, energy drinks, video games, phones, computers, prescription drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and so on. Why? Because the more units sold, the more profits for the capitalist corporations. Capitalist corporations are literally indifferent to the harm any of these addictions wreak. Their priority is profit, not producing commodities that enhance and enrich our lives.
