In the end, it's only big corporations who do.

I remember reading about a bunch of Silicon Valley bigshots who took a course on influencing people by showing them things that make them angry, at UC Berkley (?), who are now running Facebook and Google and Instagram . . .

Big corporations revenue depends on how the public perceives them. Take a look at some of the former brands that used to enjoy a good public image, like Kodak or General Electric, and see what they have become because of public perception and corporate rebranding. Buying those stocks, a person couldn't go wrong. Now I wouldn't buy anything with their name on it.

And who is it that has the most influence over people? The media. 100% of their revenue depends on public perception, which has led to the trend of link baiting and fake news. Remember that next time someone dis's the CBC. :idea:

Well some far-right governments like Ford, Kenney and Trump are but mostly it’s big corporations especially fossil fuel, mining and forestry, and big polluters and agribusiness, the usual villains.
