I wish I could highlight 2 different sections and staple them together. I’ve worked in marketing all my adult life and the people who follow those pied pipers aren’t the sort that “already made it to some satisfying station in life when you’re allowed to focus on your own personal development for subsistence rather than a survivalist climb out from the bottom”

Most often, they ARE the people trying to climb out of the bottom. And they stumble around, weighted down with broken dreams and unpaid bills and they’re looking for someone to show them the path out. Someone who “knows” how to be successful.

But as you say, there’s a thousand different tunes by a thousand different hucksters and it’s damn hard to watch.

Thanks for writing this.
