A Facebook comment on doughnuts and public diplomacy (slightly edited)

article via ACP on Facebook

The doughnut business is resilient.
  • John Brown "Tastiest" is, of course, the hole in the middle. What a marketing trick (you induce the breakfast-less, hungry consumer to gulp down overpriced alimenatry junk, and then the most enjoyable part of the experience turns out to be not eating this culinary s--t after all -- "content" that doesn't cost a dime to the producer!). Applicable to how cynics view public diplomacy, also known to perhaps greater cynics as just crude propaganda?
