: I won't correct you because you aren't wrong, but I fail to see how little flags and presents can be viewed as psychological violence. These are merely goods that are bought for cash that the children or their parents pay McDonalds.
I didn't say these things WERE psychological violence, not in the literal sense. The original poster of this phrase is from Italy, so I think English is a second language and the poster probably meant McDonalds giving "Gifts" to kids so they'll keep on coming back (I don't think brainwashing is the right word here either). Something may have been lost in translation!
