Question by jjjen09: How much power does popular culture have over how people learn about values, ideas, and cultures?
Why do people subscribe and try to live up to advertising culture’s standards? What do you think we should do as cultural critics to resist the power of popular and advertising culture? To what extent should individuals take responsibility and to what extent would you hold corporations and popular culture industries (Hollywood, major media networks, advertising companies, etc.) accountable?

Depends on your age and wisdom. As i get older I find myself being less of a capitolist wh*re. Unfortuanly people feel this need to be a generic cool. Making them a generic tool. For instance…. Justin Beiber, Nsync, Having the newest phone even though it doesn’t do anything more than last years model.
I find much greater joy in doing my own thing, listening to good music not what’s catchy or cool. I also find greater joy in my individualism.
We need to take a stand against idiotic things.. like Twilight and Basketball Wives.
