Marketing and Guilt

Marketing loves guilt. It uses code words to switch on the feelings of guilt and make people try to assuage them by buying ridiculous things.

Global warming! Buy fake meat!

Children in cages! Buy open borders!

Nobody really cares about climate or the children. It’s all about the cycle of activating and then assuaging the guilt. It’s like scratching an itch: painfully delightful.
