1.1 Background of Study

Over the last three decades, the fast foods industry has infiltrated every nook and cranny of the Indonesian society. An industry that began with a handful of modest hot dog and hamburger stands in Medan, Jakarta, Bandung, and other cities has spread to every corner of the nation, selling a broad range of foods wherever paying customers could be found.
Erik Schlosser (American investigative journalist) states that:

“Fast food is now served at restaurants and drive-throughs, airports, zoos, high schools, elementary schools and universities, on cruise ships, trains and airplanes, K-marts, gas stations and even hospital cafeterias.”

This trend is sustained by the innovative ways in which marketers target the ever growing sector of the food market. Twenty five years ago, only a handful of Indonesian companies directed their marketing at children. Today children are being targeted by phone companies, clothing stores and restaurant chains as well. The growth in children’s advertising has been driven by efforts to increase not just current but also future consumption.
The ever growing large number of fast food restaurants, has become a way of life for many consumers – young and old. Consumers, particularly children, find it tough to resist the temptation not to notice these advertised products as a result of the persuasiveness of the advertising. Advertisements on television (TV) are favoured by fast food…...

The incidence and value differ substantially, but penetration of such consumption habits is wide spread and is on the increase. Although largely an urban phenomenon, the pattern is also emerging in rural areas with better road connectivity, increased vehicle ownership and rise in income levels. In a country with more than a billion people, opportunities in India are abound. This has led to a rapid growth of the QSR industry. However, simultaneously, it has also created a canvass that has many failures and carcass. Several outlets have been closed, a large number are struggling, still a large number are just about surviving and lot many of them have not been able to find their feet.

...experiences suffering the actions of love directs them to moral redemption on a celestial level. Before facing redemption, characters such as Jean Valjean undergo dramatic life changes. In spite of the reasons Jean Valjean becomes a “fagot”, throughout the narration it is forever present that the main character is on a path to salvation (Hugo, p.66). It is in an expressed opinion that he is suffering from being devoid of human contact for over 19 years. On the other hand, some will see the desire to interact with another as a weakness worthy of living without. Moreover Jean Valjean is forced into emerging from the Galley’s of Toulon as an outcast of society not even wanted among “dogs” (Hugo, p.11). Meanwhile one can only wonder about the mental effects such depravation can cause. For this reason it is expressed that the character in question is disabled, suddenly confused about right and wrong. In addition to the main character, Marius is clouded by ignorance and anger undergoing a powerful transformation. (Hugo, 1961) Not long after finding out the truth about his father Marius blindly runs away from his problems. Equally important is the way Marius was able to re-examine his life due to the emergence of the Jondrette (Thenardier), forgetting briefly about the raging feud between himself and his grandfather. Therefore it is reasonable to say that the suffering of humanity is necessary to grow as a morally correct human begin. After discovering what keeps them venerable,......

Just like entering college, it’s like entering a new chapter of our lives. One may feel excited in meeting new classmates and friends; others may feel afraid of committing a mistake, might feel nervous of meeting the instructors or professors , and may feel curious of seeing and discovering this out of his new environment. Studying is fun and exciting. This will be more interesting if we are working together with the ones who understands us and to whom we are comfortable with. This is what we called friends. This group of people may bring a positive and negative effect on us; it might also help or destruct on our studies. The effect will just be depending on how we will react and respond to what is happening around us. Friends are sometimes the ones who bring the curiousness out within us. They are the ones who usually let us try and discover things out for the first time.

...not completely to blame. But he added that there failure to post warnings about nutrition content and their sophisticated marketing strategies make them partly culpable” (Malek, 2011). A small amount of people started to boycott the fast food nation because of their unethical ways of not mentioning the needed information about the food’s nutrition. Many researchers and people against the fast food nation started to carry out experiments, for example the documentary “Supersize Me”. This show conveys the shocking effects of having fast food everyday as regular meals. The fast food companies started to make sure that the information is available to the consumers. Protestors against fast food started boycotts that conveyed that the information isn’t displayed in a way where it prevents the consumers from actually having the meals. Later, the fast food industries made the information available knowing that it wouldn’t affect the demand for their food. One solution to the effects of excess consumption of fast food is taking responsibility for one’s actions. People should start understanding that they actually have a choice in the situation. Knowing the fact that the food they are buying and eating is causing their bodies to lack health, logically, should make one avoid buying or eating that food; yet, people would rather blame it on the persuasion, which is half to blame, to remove the guilt. People need to stop being ignorant and take responsibility for their actions, and realize......
