Christians, Capitalism, and Stretching the Truth

Capitalism is guilty of lying. Free enterprise stretches the truth.

Here is an example in advertising.

You deserve the best.” What is the best? Something very expensive! Who is the you? Everyone who has a television set! What is deserve? To be worthy of merit. That is like saying everyone is awarded Eagle Scout or the Congressional Medal of Honor because everyone deserves them. This word is ubiquitous in advertising. What is the catch? This thing you deserve is not awarded to you. You have to pay for it and you can’t afford it.

Christians in advertising, refuse to lie.
