Wir Autofahrer sind nicht nur betrogen, sondern auch nach Strich und Faden belogen worden. Allein mit der bereits vorhandenen Technik hätte man – konsequent eingesetzt – auch vor ein paar Jahren schon die Grenzwerte sicher einhalten können

Der ganze Artikel ist sehr lesenswert.

Was mich immer wieder fasziniert, ist das Meckern über die bösen Konzerne auf der einen, und das weiter bei ihnen einkaufen auf der andern Seite. Das gilt auch für Lebensmittel und zig andere Bereiche. Es scheint nicht klar, dass der Konsument tatsächlich die Macht hat – mit dem Geldbeutel an der Kasse! … Continue reading

Ich gucke das ja schon lange nicht mehr. Meine Tochter ist – soweit ich das sehe – längst aus dem Alter raus, in dem diese Sendung relevant war für sie. Trotzdem hat mich der Titel aufhorchen lassen, und ich war froh, solche klaren Worte zu lesen zu diesem Thema. Sehr gut!

I have been watching a little bit of TV lately and noticed two commercials that both dealt with teenage supervision. One was a Volkswagen commercial, showing a dad in his Passat. I didn’t pay attention to the beginning of it, but I think he was picking up his daughter’s boyfriend at an airport. The two teenagers were sitting in the back seats. The dad was watching them through the rear mirror. All the time. So they couldn’t kiss each other. The point here was the traffic jam detection of the car, and that it would automatically slow down and accelerate as the traffic moves. But the interesting thing was that the dad in the driver seat could watch his daughter all the time, without taking his eyes off the rear mirror.

Another commercial I saw had a very similar message. I didn’t even catch the brand that was advertised. But the message was identical. In that spot, the dad used a home automation system to play with the blinds in his daughter’s room and other tricks. Again to prevent her from kissing her boyfriend.

So I am like, what the fuck. Is this behavior becoming the new norm in this country or what? Holy fuck. Whoever did those commercials, or approved them, or has them attached to the brand now, doesn’t realize how sick this is? I mean, come on. The teenagers in those spots were like real people.
