- It’s no secret that advertising is a powerful influencer of public opinion. NPR has already projected that $4.4 billion will be spent on TV advertisements alone for the 2016 election campaign to try and win voters over for the respective Democratic and Republican candidates. There should be a strict limit on how much money is allowed to be spent on political campaign advertisements regardless of if the campaign is funded by grassroots organizations or by multi-million dollar corporations.

A true knowledge will never be influenced by any changes and it cannot be affected by anything; it will stand alone without changing....   [tags: Plato, Soul, Socrates, Epistemology]
