I read this line, and it was attributed to someone named Chuck Palahniuk. I could not find any information actually connecting this quote to Chuck Palahniuk — besides many other people basically doing a “copy” and “paste” of this same quote with this same attribution. Since I don’t know who actually said it — since I cannot find a link to Chuck Palahniuk as the source of this quote, I will simply listen to the words and then tell you what I think about them.
I find the quote very interesting.
Here is my take on it:
As good parents, people teach their children to ignore advertisements. As good workers, they pay to promote and advertise attention towards increasing business activity.
