Yet people will spend $2,000 on a TV...
Folks that spend $2000+ on a TV, are likely to spend $600+ every time their cell phone company has a new promotion, and they are the target audience.
I just wish people found less pleasure and value in things that they feel separates them from others than they do from those things that connect
I have to agree with @General Eyes. Items that are designed to make others covet, whether they are bragging about how theirs is bigger, better,
brighter, or secretly wishing they had one, and it was bigger, better of brighter, creates just another artificial difference for us that can, and
will be exploited.
My shed and garage are full of old, unused, or nonworking appliances, electronics, and TVs, going back over 40 years. I rarely watch TV, and would not
even bother having one set up in my house, if my mother didn't enjoy watching her odd show here and there.
I don't want these items in a landfill near me, and I can't give them away for parts, because they will end up contaminating the soil and water in
some third world country, which with time, the results will be even more devastating. I am not blaming people for going along with the present social
construct. It is designed to make it extremely difficult to break away from what we have been conditioned to consider normal. I just believe in
