Wells famously remarked, “Advertising is legalized lying.” I wonder what he would think about the government not booking the over $50 trillion in unfunded liabilities in our Medicare and Social Security systems? Every quarter I even get a statement from the SSA telling me how much I am “entitled” to receive upon various changes in my life – most of which I will never see a penny of despite government propaganda to the contrary.
This naturally leads us to another question. Many people think of “capitalism” as a system where corporations slickly manipulate people into “buying” things they don’t really need or want … wouldn’t that be a better characterization of the folks perpetuating the Entitlement Fraud? And should she be allowed to advertise this book?
