How long before computers come carrying a safety rating like the NCAP's?

That has more to do with bowel control.

The purpose of advertising is to create demand for your product. The easiest way to do that is by making people fearful. Paint the absolute worst-case 'what if' scenario: "If you don't have health insurance you could suffer from a life threatening illness that would result in enormous medical bills that would devastate you financially. If you don't have OUR health insurance, you could still be financially devastated because your insurance provider doesn't cover enough of the bill. With OUR insurance, you will be protected."

The ad doesn't actually TELL you ANYTHING that you can use in making an informed decision, such as the likelihood of this worst-case scenario occurring, or how much this insurance is going to cost. But it DOES instill worry in you.

Cast a critical eye at the things you are bombarded with every day; from ads for toothpaste to political commercials to stories about Iraq or Global Warming. In the vast majority of cases, their focus is on the negative aspects and the worst-case scenarios "could, may, might, possible".

Why?

Because our survival instinct is only triggered when we are in FEAR. I'm not motivated to do something to change my condition if I'm sitting happy. I'm only motivated to do something if there is a gain in it for me, and survival is the most primal of all gains, but enhancing my survival is only possible if I think my survival is threatened, i.e. I'm in FEAR.

In the UK, lawyers are banned from advertising. Just as well!
