The opening lines of Paul Simon’s “Kodachrome” speak volumes:
“When I look back at all the crap I learned in high school, it’s a wonder I can think at all/And my lack of education hasn’t hurt my none, I can read the writing on the wall…
Vance Packard, auhor of the classic expose on advertising, “The Hidden Persuadors” (1957) reported that some television commercials were taking swipes at parents.

Thanks for the clarification.
I thought First was the right to free speech, thus the right to also remain silent. The Fifth means one doesn’t have to incriminate oneself.
