    Thanks for posting your draft. I’m trying to see everything as a draft these days but that’s easier said than done.
    I like your point of view and struggle with the word “consumer”. It implies us-and-them when in reality there is only “us”. Brand Managers and Marketing Directors etc are consumers too. In that sense, it’s a meaningless term. It’s far too easy to sit in an agency meeting and think about faceless “campaign targets” rather than real people. If you can at least try to put yourself in someone else’s shoes, have a little empathy, then hopefully business will become more human-friendly.
