adbusters_flag-795110

Compliance refers to the act of responding favorably to a request by others. The request may be explicit, such as a direct request for a charity donation, or implicit, such as an advertisement promoting some product without directly asking for a purchase. In all cases, we realise that we are being urged to respond in a desired way

We’ll discuss the above and then view similar practice from a different perspective via former Defense Secretary Robert McNamara’s WW2 experience in the Pacific realm via the award winning documentary Fog of War.
