Persuasion in Commercialism By Damian Light COMS 554 Liberty University Persuasion in Commercialism 2 Abstract Advertising and Commercialism revolve around the ideology of persuasion; the act of convincing your customers to partake in your brand products and services venue. Those who recite a message through advertising often come into theories and regulations founded by society from the inspirations of Aristotle, an ancient philosopher who taught values in communication and theories of philosophy. The study and ethics of proper advertising and persuasion techniques in hopes of deriving a broader perspective concerning the purpose of ethical advertising and how it merges with the perception of ethical business practices by advertising brands. Companies like McDonald’s employ advertising methods used and encouraged by scholars and ad agencies today, but how many values are interpreted through McDonald’s merchandise and products and services?

Whats Up with the Boy Scouts? Part II

Boy Scout leaders confess to all kinds of atrocities. Forcing kids into initiations forcing them into vows of silence. They force them to be quiet about issues they might have questions with. Such as going out to drink, writing up fake permission slips for fake service project weekends and camping trips, hanging out at the scoutmaster’s house, drinking alcohol with older scouts with the assistant scoutmasters with the scoutmaster watching him screw a hooker, have him watch them screw hookers and screwing hookers, watching ragged strippers dance to party music, smoking and selling crack rocks, that kind of thing. BSA has stringent policies against such behavior, but when it comes up they tend to bat a blind eye, unless you keep reporting it and you keep at it. They know nothing of the trauma they cause in other’s lives, in the way of the wind. They care little for the emotional disturbances they cause they care nothing for what the kids have to say. Boy scouts have all kinds of ritual…

What's going on at the Boy Scouts of America? Part I

WWhats going on at BsA?? Boy Scouts of America, the many echelons of politics and greatness brought down time and again by abuse, hazing and the discussion of sexual orientation, sexual misconduct and the lust of leaders who crave companionship, aggressively. The sad part of this organization is, that, at one time, it belonged to people and children who longed to be a part of something greater. The world needs survivalists, it needs people that can pull it together when the going gets tough. Children are trained in basic camping, hiking and backpacking skills. How to plan menus at camp, and to cook and feed their patrols. How they can pack a backpack, pitch a tent, fly a tarp and sit and eat as a functional unit. In the summer they can get away for a week or two at a time and then they can learn and earn merit badges, professing in arts and sciences. They can learn forestry, astronomy, plant life and insect study, there is time for building bridges and pioneering, learning to buil…

This month in ... STUFF THAT HAPPENED TO ME

So, what a glorious month I have had. I was forced out of an amended complaint and filed my second one. I was forced out of a room in Staten Island and went to Ontario, my first visit to the land of factories and business parks. I won a few coins at the casino, high on moon rocks and drank some 10.00 beers in Niagara falls. I took some photos and then was forced out of my room in Ontario to spend all my winnings getting to Montreal and then having to leave because I was broke and walked out, 60 miles to Vermont. I was forced into custody at the border for not having a passport and the chick there, hotter than sin, working for Border Patrol gave me a case of gangrine, as cops often do, so now i have a bleeding and pussing finger to attend to ,,,,, oh no. I was forced into this town in Vermont that is filled with angry conservative liberal cheese heads who reminded me of amish people, who are less conservative, way too much. Or is the witnesses, I had an amish woman gaze at me over the …

Pop Up Blocker Settings Haunt 2018

How do i fics these settings. Fuekn Google sending notifications to my computer that linger and all of them are from career builder and nowhere but the company you probably work for's butthole. In the corner no less when I have to look meticulously at the margin and the corner margins on the lower right half of the computer just as much as the microsoft google notification that I can find nowhere in the settings so I am pretty much eratic and looking at the computer like a mad amn for a few uttered seconds from the god of wrath and senseless debilitating and derogatory language that could be considered obscene. When I am submitting hundreds of resumes and articles over the internet and focusing on the fine tuning and constant need of format in the written word or the published word because of the need to publish them and the perhaps long winded effect of fine tuning the mind enough to settle down the raging impulse to grab the laptop and device and smash it into pieces because th…
