How times have changed

This is a video by the Fine Bros featuring teens who reacted to cigarette ads that used to run on popular media.
Such ads do not feature prominently anymore because we now know the harm that cigarettes do. However, for decades the cigarette industry placed profits over well-being and we let them do it. It took time, evidence, as well as social and political will to bring us to where we are today.
There will be many other things that people in 50 years will wonder why we accept today. Might we wonder why we schooled our kids instead of educating them?
