Example: Clearly, alcohol abuse is endemic amongst American teenagers which demands that alcohol manufacturers be prohibited from advertising to youth, and requires the entertainment industry to censor their alcohol-related content.Just like tobacco companies, alcohol manufacturers know that the best customer is a life-long customer, so they naturally want to target the youth with their ad campaigns, as these campaigns have proved both effective and profitable for the companies. After all, 12-20% of all alcohol purchases are made by people under the age of twenty-one. But also like the tobacco companies, alcohol manufacturers contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to politicians every year, and because of those vast donations, Washington has been slow to pass any legislation that might harm their donor. Because the youth is currently exploited by alcohol campaigns, and because the alcohol manufacturers are in the pockets of the politicians, Americans cannot expect the government to solve the underage drinking crisis on its own. Instead, it is up to the American people to launch aggressive lawsuits against the alcohol industry until it has cost them enough to make them change their ways. Through a series of unrelenting lawsuits, and an onslaught of new legislation protecting America’s youth from alcohol ad campaigns and media influence, a new day will be won, and America’s youth will finally be protected.
