oversell

On a real estate billboard in Melbourne’s Carleton area, I spotted the following slogan:

NOT A HOME BUYER BUT A WARLORD BATTLING FOR TERRITORY.

As Kylie sings, Can’t get that out of my head. Does the overlord state encourage its citizens to extend the metaphor of external militarism to activities at home? They do say that TRADE is legalised warfare of a cut throat variety.
