On one hand, an affordable choice has to be that anybody selling anything has to make customers knowledgeable about what's readily available. You cannot constantly rely on buyers to actively seek you out. Marketing is reasonable enough, on that basis.
On the other hand there have constantly been limits to how prevalent this business invasion into our lives can get. Roadside billboards, radio ads, TV ads and printed advertisements are a passive effort to engage with individuals with money to invest. They're great. You don't have to pay attention if you do not wish to, even though lots of people do however.
