    On this from Bell brings that mind back to the many ads and talk, before cable and before advertising was a main industry of economic growth, as I grew up in and into what was being built during and well after WWII by that greatest generation. Advances in washing machines the came dryers and better refrigeration as well as away from gas stoves to electric with power mowers and not push generated and on and on, before computers and the internet and when phones were just that phones.

    All the talk of advancing technologies that were making our lives that much easier and would continue to do so. Into work weeks to 30hrs. at better wages and benefits thus more family and leisure time and the ability to afford that.

    The dreams were coming true then the capitalist changed the ideologies of capitalism and into the tank we went, watching and living in that experience till today, them young aren't better off then the not so old previous generation!!
