“The computer industry is indirectly dominating society too much, and uses people’s fears against them.”
The technology dispensed by billion dollar corporations has been very helpful for many years now.
And yet, still they invent reasons for a so called “upgrade”.
So what does this mean? An “upgrade” is in fact a change.
It is a change from one set of things to another.
This change is sold always as an improvement and often plays on people’s fears by using words like “security” and “safety” to sell it.
But life is not 100% “secure” or “safe”.
Computers, phones, tablets, lap tops, they are really just appliances.
The toaster works the same way it always has done, and despite some petti differences between them, they do the job none the less.
A computer or phone or tablet from 10 years ago is still very advanced and for vital tasks such as word processing, communicating, light surfing, it does that fine.
The computer industry is indirectly dominating society too much, and uses people’s fears against them.
An advertisement from 5 years ago presented the future version of the device as some kind of “better” thing.
And yet the changes made between one version and another are so small that in decades time, no one will be able to tell much difference between all of them.
This is why the tech industry needs to be prevented from forcing these costs onto people.
If people were able to keep using the same device for years, it would save the world billions AND it would protect the environment.
Because inevitably the production of these pointless goods just destroys nature faster and for no reason.
The obsession with all of these technical things has weakened the world.
People are now forced to rely on unreliable machines instead of their inbuilt senses.
The obsession with the present keeps people trapped in a never ending chase of the next carrot being dangled before them.
And then the next carrot appears.
It is just a game played by cynical corrupt corporations to trick people into spending money they don’t have on things they don’t need.
