“Next to Christianity, advertising is the greatest force in the world. ..”

"Next to Christianity, advertising is the greatest force in the world. .." Does God make you discontented?
A quote from an ad man:

"Next to Christianity, advertising is the greatest force in the world. And I say that without sacrilege or disrespect. Advertising makes people discontented. It makes them want things they don’t have. Without discontent, there is no progress, no achievement." 

 – Ray Locke, an owner of Tracy-Locke Company, an advertising agency (quoted in Adman: Morris Hite’s Methods for Winning the Ad Game, by Russ Tate.)
