Dispatch from an advertising future #150


There’s been an increase. Years of on-off restrictions, recession, economic and social isolation plus the underlying hum of the culture wars. I’ve never liked drugs – even when we could get them I didn’t like prescribing them. I knew the causes were deep-rooted, the cure was more complex than chemical tinkering. Meaningless debate now of course. My patients couldn’t get them even if I did want to dole them out. So I’ve been trying it. I was suspicious. Panacea, distraction. And we know where the AdTherapy (™) research came from. But at least it’s something.They even get free programming too.
