Corrupt in the sense that we're making decisions based on marketing manipulation rather than cold hard objective data.

There will always be debate about what is good and what is bad, but let's at least start with the facts. Marketing is all about getting us to forget about facts and make impulsive emotional decisions.

I'd rather us make bad decisions based on not analysing the facts properly instead of disengaging reason altogether.

Our genetics will probably need to shift for us to value reason over emotional reaction.
