PhilosophicalMan

Pro

Introduction:

I, pro, will defend the position of explaining that Advertising can be harmful to citizens at times.
Definition of "Advertising"
Advertising is simply a business that persuades americans to simply go to their website, or support them.
Arguments:
I think Advertising is harful at times because multiple websites support bad behavior that might influence children and adults at times. It also might encourage people to consider doing those types of stunts.
Conclusion:
I've concluded this case in explaining the immaturity of advertisements. I will await your description in contending this argument.

Con

In accordance to the definition of "harmful", if you consider something harmful, you would think that whatever you consider harmful either has the intentions of harming people, or it is that thing/person's fault that people are being harmed. Well, it wouldn't be the advertisement really, but rather the person who let themselves involve/watch/etc whatever the advertisement leads to. If they think it's bad, why would they watch it? If they are still gonna watch, regardless, then they don't really care about morality
