As predicted so long ago (1964) by Paul Simon

And the people bowed and prayed,
To the neon god they made,
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming,
And the sign said “The words of the prophets are written on the subway walls,
And tenement halls”
And whisper’d in The Sounds of Silence.
Truer than ever. It’s all about advertising everywhere you go, baby. Everything must be bought and sold. Everything must be advertised and promoted more than ever before. The gods and the prophets are Madison Avenue. Still. A materialistic society and age. Still. Got your shiny new annual car or iWatch yet?
