It’s hard to find, in these critical competitive times, truthful marketing campaigns.
They do try to squeeze out of you every little penny they can.
Some campaigns are blatantly fake (like the irritating spam we keep receiving in our mail boxes); others seem to be absolutely honest, but… there’s the small print, or “applicable only to available stock”, etc.
Being a skeptical person by nature, and a cynic one by life's experience, I thought impossible that I could ever see truly honest publicity.
Look at this result when searching for “faked abduction product”.
Isn’t it just completely, totally and absolutely honest?
Unfortunately, there’s just one tiny, little detail that spoils the perfection. Or, to be precise, two tiny, little details. See if you can spot them.
Look at the "popular tags" on the left of the screen:
- narcissistic personality disorder (2)
- unanswered questions (2)
- biography (1)
- cover-up (1)
- deliberate warped use of amazon tag system by... (1)
- evil internet creeps (1)
- fraud (1)
- jon benet ramsey (1)
- lies (1)
- making money off of neglectful parenting (1)
What are “biography” and “jon benet ramsey” doing in the middle of such truthful tags about the Black Hats?!?
Could I ask you, Amazon, to take out just those two tags off that particular page, so that I may become, against all I believe in, a believer in perfection?
Not as a “Post Scriptum” but as a sequence of the above, let me add the following thoughts.
I imagine that Kate McCann may by now be thinking “Why is the whole world against me? Oh why?!?” Let me appease you Dear Kate. No, the WHOLE world is NOT against you.
There are still out there some voices defending you. They’re very few.
Maybe less than a dozen, ridiculously hysterical, and honestly making a sad, sorry spectacle of themselves. NOT laughable because laughter is an healthy human reaction that is NEVER triggered either by pity or by disgust.
Just a few days ago, the world reached it’s 7th billion human being. A dozen does in fact represent very, very little.
Or even less than that. A percentage that is to be discarded, I could say, but won’t. You know why?
Because I’m applying the exact same principle you are when it comes to your understanding of “reasonable doubt”.
Although almost the totality of facts known do point to your guilt, you cling on to the smallest infinitesimal probability of occurrence of a ridiculous number of coincidences to claim your possible innocence until PROVEN guilty.
So, using the same reasoning, 12, more or less (and I’m being generous), out of 7 billion, means, if you want to be really, really, REALLY precise, that the WHOLE world is NOT against you.
