How fitting that at the end of the article is an ad for the Edward Bernay book, Propaganda.
I had this book in the seventies.
It is a rather dry read, but fascinating in its content.
Bernays coined the term, "public relations," among others.
The term, "Lifestyle," comes from marketing also.
The whole idea of buying a new car every year comes from Bernays fomenting the idea of consumerism.
