The Ishmael Community: Questions and Answers
The Question (ID Number 638)...
I was watching the tellie (television) the other day, and one of those "The Truth" anti-tobacco commercials came on. While watching it, I got the idea that we should write and produce a bunch of commercials that tell people the truth about our planet, our culture, and our possible future. T.V. reaches millions of people (as opposed to the 30 people privy to the speeches I give in my philosophy classes), and if the commercials were demographically targeted for maximum effectiveness, it may be able to help get the message out faster than any way we've tried thus far. I was wondering what you thought of this idea, and also if you knew of any people in this little community of ours that has the means (read: cash) to help make it a logistical possibility.
...and the response:
An admirable idea, but what you're describing is the work if an organization with a budget of millions of dollars a year. If such a thing was burgeoning in "this little organization of ours," I think I would have heard of it (and I haven't). Not that such a thing is impossible to create. If it's something you'd like to do, by all means go for it!
