Planned Obsolescence

Just in case you don’t know what this is, there ya go.

In a world where everything is centered around money/profit, this is what they use to their advantage. It is not profitable to build a sustainable, long-lasting device. Money sure does keep the world moving, downward. And where does all that now broken shit go? The garbage to then clutter the world.

@comicsanmc, Jacque Fresco is the man. I love his work. However, I don’t think a RBE is on the horizon just yet. Perhaps a sustainable future that works with nature is though. Man can only take this rubber society for so long.

@comicsanmc, As do I. Although I hate it, because I’m in it.

@martijn, Hey thanks for bringing this up Martjn, I agree it is very important for people to take some time out and really dig into this.

You can absolutely make planned obdolevence obsolete in a capitalist economy. Apple did it. Remember how sturdy apple products first were? Then once they weened half of the world off of any other electronic-product-maker-company, they started puppin out new products every quarter that super outdate the previous one. That’s some good controlled planned obsoledevence.

This is why better business men are needed.

Anyways, thanks for stopping by. What do you think?

@nickc2007, “We all know that the biggest advertising giants use subliminal techniques to get us to want their products,” haha are you frightened my sheeple? I don’t know about you dude, but I bought an iPhone because I wanted that shiny mother fucka and because it is a way better product than most other phones. And that goes for a lot of the Apple products. It’s not my fault other companies suck.
