Ralph Nader coined the term way back in the early 70's.

It's called "planned obsolescence".

Hello, me again!


And again, I mentioned that resource management is the problem, and there is a reason that I mentioned it. Western nations waste more food than many less developed nations ever produce or eat. That is a resource management failure of massive scale.

We over eat, we under exercise, we use plastic for packaging of near enough everything, when it should only be used to make things which are intended to last lifetimes, like equipment housings for computer components, or other things which need to last. We waste fuel on trips of less than two miles, trips which we should be walking, but justify driving for reasons of no importance, whether we are in good health or ill. We fail to manage our resources properly. Hell, there are things we could be doing with our human waste which we do not do, all because we fear a little dirty work.

Again, its not the number of people that is the problem. Its how irresponsibly those people use the resources of space and material which come unto them.

1) Nothing is made to last anymore. Corporations figured out that they make more money by putting a life limit on their products.


you hit the nail on the head, and drove it with one swing of the hammer here. i use to own a commercial/industrial electric equipment shop. worked there for 20 years before i bought it.

when i first went to work there in the early 80's we use to joke about how well new stuff was built compared to old stuff.
the new stuff/same model numbers may have looked identical to the old ones on the outside, but on the inside you could see that the components were getting cheaper and cheaper as the years went on. after about ten years it stopped being funny because of what we were seeing take place. we knew it was becoming a throw away industry.

the older stuff would run years and years with very little normal wear and tear if used properly, and even if abused it they would run for a fairly long time. and you could get just single parts to repair them.

on the mechanical end for example then they just stopped making single parts and started making assemblies. like if just one gear was bad, you use could get that one and it's mating gear. but then they started selling whole assemblies, and charging more for the part and that effectually made the cost of repair unfeasible.

on the electrical end, they started using circuit boards on everything, instead of electro mechanical. where say a circut could function with a relay and a switch they started using boards, that were built dirt cheap in taiwan or china and sold them for outrages prices.

This is fun! I'm like bouncing up and down with glee!

I love this topic! It's a perfect example of doom porn. Some snake-oil scientists sitting on the street corner of life singing the %sky is falling...the sky is falling!!!...and there's no hope% with a coffee can out in front of them labeled "research grant donations please"

I love it!!

Can we do this all day??? Huh, can we, can we???



Yeah... that was pretty funny.

Yes. ok, you have a point. We do not use the res wisely at all and we do have too much of it. i've said it elsewhere too... that we have too much. For instance, I've got a choice of 3 small shops all selling the same stuff near enough. one is 2 mins away, another is 3 mins away and the other is just over 3 mins away.

It's what I said on another thread: Why don't people work together instead of against eachother all wanting that pound/dollar (Or whatever denomination is used). This would save a hell of a lot of res.

Don't you just love the ignorant people with no academic background in science or anything close to it, telling us these scientists are wrong and that they know different.

So here's an idea...an idea which will save the world AND save the economy all in one move...

Create a worldwide lottery system where everyone adds up the serial number on a $1 dollar bill. If it's an even number you're golden, but if it's an odd number, sorry Charlie...get in the line labeled "Free grape Kool-Aid". Never mind the bodies up by the front of the line; they're just napping.

Wow, that's an excellent point. Built to fail, or built to facilitate buying another. What a twisted culture we've created.


Fridges. Cookers/Ovens. TV's. Computers.

It's true.

Don't you just love ignorant people with no academic background in science or anything close to it, telling us the scientists are always right (despite the fact there is an equally opposite and conflicting scientific point of view) and that they know different.

I had three kids in three years. Without bc I would be have had 20. No thanks.

I dont buy into the bc conspiracy. Just another way for the destroyers to control vaginas. Barefoot and pregnant and all that.

I seldom see a post I have absolutely no idea how to respond to.

Wow...I have absolutely no idea how to respond to what you just typed!!!

Uhhhhhh...what???????

edit....I'm literally just sitting here shaking my head!!! So let me see if I've got this straight...your vagina is completely out of control. Is that pretty much the bottom line here? Because, if it wasn't for birth control...well, there would be a population explosion, right? Does it like talk to you? Tell you what to do? What kind of shoes to wear...or not to wear shoes at all? This is all so confusing...and, frankly, a little bit spooky!

I have no children so why should I? And I didn't say to STOP altogether now did I?


do you consume products?
do you use public transportation or ride a bicycle for your local needs?
do you live in a high rise apartment that houses hundreds of families or in a single home?

point is, just about everything you do contributes to what these scientists are saying. you consume and take up space. if your truly concerned about it. instead of saying others need to do something, you need to step up and lead by example.

that's great you don't drive, or have kids. but you can do more, so step up and volunteer to do more. give up your comforts, get off the internet, give up your computer, tv, or anything but the basic necessities and if that's doesn't help forfeit your life, instead of demanding that others do more. lead by example.

YES!

Proper sharing of information, proper collaboration between the hemispheres of the globe with regard to resource management, food access and responsible agriculture, collapsing the big agribusinesses, collapsing the fuel economy by decentralising power production to the level of the home...

Hell, we have a massive problem even with the space industry at the moment, with all the trash we generate that gets left up there, bits of spacecraft, old, broken satellites, some with still warm nuclear material on board as a power source, fragments of this that and the other... Imagine if the nations of the world put their heads together, and managed to figure out between them, a method of harvesting all those scraps, and building something from them in space?

It would be hard, but WORTH it. Theres enough material up there to build something far larger and more useful than the ISS out of, assuming it could be harvested. Working on these problems requires co-operation. But with nations squabbling with one another, controlled by corporate interests and greed, there will be no solution. A different approach must be arrived at!

I know. I have one child. Only planned to have one child.

Haven't been on the pill for a long time now because it makes migraines worse. Hubby and I get along just fine in the bedroom dept, but somehow ... I have managed to avoid popping out 20 kids without the pill.

I must have a much more mannerly woman part.

Put half of the world population on a spaceship and send them into deep space.

Build cities underground

Build cities on the moon or Mars

Release a deadly virus that target all ugly people

Actually, Idaho has dozens of laws directed at only people with vaginas. To force giving birth. Mormons control our state government and they want a woman to have lots of children. The church is their safety net. But water is already hard to find on available lands. New housing construction is rare because having to dig so deep for Wells.
