Creating Desire

In a commercial capitalist system like ours, it’s the job of advertising to create desire in potential customers. They do this by trying to convince us that their product will make us happy, but such a belief is never accurate. There is nothing external to us that will create lasting happiness. We can fight against that truth all we want, but nothing will change it. If we want to be happy, we have to learn to love ourself.
