From the Paper:

"America is a cesspool of corporate advertisement. Corporate marketing is everywhere. We are constantly having products shoved down our throats. The corporate influence is everywhere. It is impossible to avoid it, and most people simply accept it and assume it is the way it has to be. To the corporations, we are nothing more than potential profit separated only by demographics. Clothing corporations have even gotten us to pay them to become walking billboards. We have become a culture at the mercy of this commercial onslaught."
