It’s funny to think that the human society is run by corporations, but it is so true! For example in week 6 of this term Lasens talked about the power of corporations, and how they are modeling our minds. Don’t think this is true? This past weekend I was at home watching the Daytona 500 with my father and couldn’t help to notice that corporate America is running this event, how so? Let’s start by looking at their cars:
They are all covered in sponsors, and they bigger the sponsor the bigger the ad on their car.
Or how about this weekend during the NBA All-star weekend. How great drives are sponsored by the “Sprite Spark of the Game!” or how every piece of information is introduced by “brought to you by…” Corporate America is running everything behind the scenes and people are almost oblivious to it.
But if you’re not a sports fan, lets jump to week seven and how the article “Hunger is Ideology” and how it brings up how advertisements only show people with perfect bodies. Do they want America to become fake to please others? But yet they will do just about anything to get you to buy their product. This is why I believe Corporate America runs society as we know it!
