    • Wiki Discussions - Example This is an ad that appeared in a Boston newspaper in 1770. The text at the top introduces the list of men that follows by saying that they boldly go against the united feelings of the merchants of America because they continue to bring in British goods for sale in America. Notice that Mr. Lillie, Constance’s uncle, is on the list. Imagine yourself as a shoe store owner today. A group of people resents that you import the shoes and sneakers you sell from Asia. They feel that you should only sell things made in America. In addition to not buying in your store, they take out an ad on TV in order to embarrass you, and to let others know what you are doing. Is this fair? Should they have the right to hurt your feelings and your business in this way?
