A country where the presence of ad resistance training is notable is Germany. East Germany. After the reunification Germany quickly became a single economy. Soon, however, marketing companies realised that the advertising used in what used to be West Germany did not work at all in die neue Länder. Apparantly many years of dictatorship with a vigorous propaganda machine had given the population some immunity to that kind of indoctrination. Advertising campaigns in Germany therefore have two kinds of advertisements: manipulative ones in the west, and more informative ones in the east.
