When we lead ourselves to believe our illusions, we can find ourselves trapped in an unrealistic perception of life. These illusions are attempts to distract ourselves from the reality that we are not satisfied with life. When these illusions turn out to be false, we often attack those who revealed the illusion to us. This is perhaps to hide our anguish, and feelings of inadequacy. These illusions are almost always damaging to us; however, to view life in a realist perspective is often too hard.
We have the social media to blame for many stories that aren’t told truthfully. The sad part is that some people believe if you read it on Facebook or twitter it must be true. Every day the media is tweaking stories to make their ratings go up so more people will watch them and bring in more money. There are many stories written in print that are true from someone’s point of view but more than likely another person who witnessed or lived through the same event would tell the story with a whole different twist. A major story that was reported with misleading information was a news story over "Fukusima 50".
Artists, musicians, and writers take advantage of the various platforms in order to gain publicity. Businesses are slowly making the transition over to online selling and advertising, marketing their products to more people than ever before. Consumer culture has never been as large as it is now, and it will only grow larger as the years go by and that is almost entirely due to media. Comparatively, in the beginning media was mostly contained to papers, prints, and magazines. Later emerged the radio, television, and after that the internet and social media.
That is why advertisers promote their products by misleading children with distractions of toys. In the advertisement I spoke about earlier where Minion toys were being used to catch children’s attention, food was discussed for less than half of the time it took for the advertisement to play. It is not just unethical to advertise to children without them being aware of the truth in the product being advertised, but in the case of food, it is harmful because they are unaware that what they are eating is not beneficial to their health. That is why companies need to change the way they are advertising to children. In her article, “New Federal Guidelines Regulate Junk Food Ads for Kids,” published in 2011, Marion Nestle points out how “The food industry has consistently opposed giving the FTC more authority over marketing of foods and supplements.” The food industry will continue to oppose any regulations trying to be placed on food marketing, which is why food companies need to take it upon themselves to regulate the advertisements aimed at children.
Impressing others or trying to fit in is what Orwell did when he was going to shoot the elephant. There have been times where children show off in front of others. It may be having a candy bar or maybe even a brand new Hot Wheels car or a new Barbie doll. Having something that someone else doesn’t have tend to make people feel like they are better than the rest. People are usually more frightened at the thought of what others will think of them than being themselves.
A stain in one’s name is a serious dishonor. Rumors, as well as wrongful actions, affect how the world sees us and how we see the world. Thus human beings are victims of their own reputation. To avoid this, one tends to use pride as a shield. However, instead of protecting us, pride hurts us even more by impeding us from solving our issues.
Just like how Stephano threatens to hurt Caliban if he makes him angry. Just as in real life, people will react to a situation in their own type of manner because of who they are. The conflicts, setting, and characterization are all techniques used to illustrate how people become corrupt and greedy in order to keep power when it 's given
Sports are a very popular all around the world, and it is a billion dollars’ business that fans get a rush from watching it. There are many famous events all across the world that fans will pay top dollars to watch such as the Olympics, Super bowl and the World Cup. It sometimes puts pressure on the athletes to go out there and perform their best even if it puts their body at risk (Covassin, Elbin III, & Stiller-Ostrowski, 2012).Year after year the numbers of concussions have decrease a lot because of the new technology that they are trying to create by the year but the numbers are still outrageous (Covassin, Elbin III, & Stiller-Ostrowski, 2012). Research has shown that the more the physical the sport, there are more likely to have more fans (Covassin, Elbin III, & Stiller-Ostrowski, 2012).
The bargaining power of buyers is high. Unlike the necessities of life, people choose their recreational activities only when they have extra time and money. As people are final customers and users, they have the power to determine what kind of entertainment they are willing to spend money. Disney needs to learn about consumer preferences and satisfy the requirement of them (Olsson, 2017). For example, if the prices of foods, hotels, clothes, and gifts in Disney’s theme parks are too high, visitors will be unwilling to pay for
They are concerned more in being unique in a rebellious way. They try to be avant-garde. They push the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm. Actually the situation is more than alarming. The works of art which are negative, pervert and ridiculous seem to be over appreciated.
