Consuming Kids throws desperately needed light on the practices of a relentless multi-billion dollar marketing machine that now sells kids and their parents everything from junk food and violent video games to bogus educational products and the family car. Drawing on the insights of health care professionals, children’s advocates, and industry insiders, the film focuses on the explosive growth of child marketing in the wake of deregulation, showing how youth marketers have used the latest advances in psychology, anthropology, and neuroscience to transform American children into one of the most powerful and profitable consumer demographics in the world. Consuming Kids pushes back against the wholesale commercialization of childhood, raising urgent questions about the ethics of children’s marketing and its impact on the health and well-being of kids.

1 comment to Peter Russell: The Primacy of Consciousness

  • Another Peter – philosopher Peter Wilberg – anticipated and has clearly argued and articulated Peter Rusell’s arguments for the primacy consciousness for many years through his books and essays on ‘The Awareness Principle’ – see http://www.theawarenessprinciple.com

    Put quite simply this principle is that AWARENESS cannot – IN PRINCIPLE – reduced to or explained as the property or product of any thing or we are aware OF – whether a body, brain, being, ‘self’ or ‘mind’ any sort. On the contrary, awareness alone is the sole reality and all things are an individualised portion embodiment, personification of a singular universal awareness field. The conceptual rigour of Peter Wilberg for the primacy of consciousness – not consciousness ‘of’ this or that but consciousness as such – awareness remains unsurpassed.

    “Awareness is everything. Everything is an awareness.”
