Dystopian controls

How we are being controlled by technology and advertisement

advertisement

Have you ever been at home and a commercial comes on and you do not want to buy the product? This happens to lots of people even though they do not want the product at first by the end of commercial it's all they can think about. Society controls us this way because they can put anything into our minds. With just a 30 second commercial ,anything that they want us to buy or desire they put it into a commercial, this is how they control us.

Technology

Technology is a big part of advertisement because it puts advertisement on the air. Technology grows everyday but without technology advertisement would not be able to convince people as easy then with technology. Television is a major pare of advertisement because that is what commercials come on. Transportation is major part of advertisement because the septa bus always has advertisement on some part of the bus, trolley, train.

Technology is suppose to be our friend but it really is a handicap.

Why do we accept this control?

We accept the control of technology and advertisement because it is what we are used to. Because we do not see what our society government has done to us. Everyday a person will use some sort of technology, because technology has become a equal to survive. Every time we use technology our societies grip on our lives become controlled by the governments desire to make money through advertisement.

Who controls what we see on TV and the media?



"With the large diversity in genres and brands, it may seem like many different people, groups, and companies control what we view. And, from a distance, this assumption would be right. But upon closer inspection, this is in fact untrue."

"Through a complex system of subsidiaries and parent companies, ninety percent of all media that we are exposed to, such as newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and movies, are all owned by six major corporations; Comcast, Disney, Viacom, CBS, News Corp., and Time Warner." For those who may watch cable TV, these big six corporations control roughly seventy percent of all cable channels."
