really liked it

A disconcerting look at corporations control of damn near every aspect of our lives. By refusing to regulate industry under the guise of parental choice, government gives industry free reign to warp children into being consumers for life, empty and incapable of thought outside of corporate messages. The very statement that parents have a choice in how their children are raised is negated by the world around them. I can forbid Bratz dolls in my home but I cannot stop their influence on my daughters if other parents do not.

A thought provoking book on the corporate search for profit.
