Mr. Caples was an iconic advertising figure from the 1920s (pre-Mad Men) who pioneered many direct marketing methods.

Why? Because people are the same.
That’s why a Bible story is just an interesting or enlightening as it was two thousand years ago.
Our surroundings are certainly different, but our human nature is the same.
Just as it will be two thousand years from now.
