  1. I don't think so, to be honest.

    Advertising can be different – it is honest, interesting, provides information for reflection, and expands the boundaries of a person's choice. Sometimes advertising is manipulative, giving distorted or obviously incomplete information, pushing a person to make a certain choice. It can also be outright deceitful, built on direct lies and falsification of facts, but… I can't even consider it violence, because I believe in the ability of a person to critically evaluate the information that comes into it and draw their own conclusions based on all the data that they have.

  2. What does violence have to do with it? If there are some elements of violence, it is not in advertising, but in forcing its viewing. And you can not watch the ad itself, do not listen, and even more so do not take it seriously. I just turn off the sound during ads.

    If they said “advertising is an unconscionable deception”, then this would be true in many cases. In advertising, “doctors” who are not doctors at all, girls who allegedly became beauties for something there, are attributed to goods with properties and qualities that do not correspond to reality. Discounts that aren't discounts at all. Etc. Complete manipulation, and if not outright deception, then such a construction that is easily misleading, although formally it does not seem to be a deception.

    I must say that some of the advertising is not clear who it is designed for at all, and this impression is created on “kickbacks” or is intended to convince the advertiser more likely.

    In the advertising business, there is a lack of reasonable, clear and strict legislation (and, of course, its implementation).

  3. and what does personality have to do with it? I have always believed that people who grew up in the information society are already intimately ignoring it.

    if a person can't do this, it means that they are adapting badly, it's a pity)
