OK I've had it with capitalism reducing the quality of food just for the sake of the 'bottom line' aka profit.
For example, the brand of biscuit that i tried a year ago I try today and guess what, less choc chip, smaller biscuit, more deceptive packaging and
most importantly less tastier.
Some other examples might be a prawn curry where each year a few more prawns are taken out of the recipe to increase profits. the more astute among
you should have noticed this gradually and slowly happening with most if not all food stuffs. Take KFC for example, notice how the coating is now
much thinner than it used to be and consequently 'less tastier'.
They try to con us with the packaging too where they will pump in more air into the product, or repackage by taking some out and making the package
look the same size or even bigger! Oh yes and theres the case of hams and many other meats being injected with water, mm water really tasty
So you see although capitalism is giving us materiality on one hand, on the other hand (well hidden incidently) it is slowly taking away our quality
of like a drip. Maybe you've got some examples too?
If you still stand up for capitalism and what it stands for in this day and age I suggest you start baking your own cookies cos you've obviously lost
CAPITALISM - IT COMES IN SMALLER AND SMALLER BOXES WITH FEWER AND FEWER THRILLS AND MORE AND MORE DECEPTION.
And to think we used to fight to uphold it! Hold on we still do HUH!
Oh yes I forgot this is LA LA land!
Look mummy it's the people on earth, look at them go round and round and round and round, ooh I'm dizzy mummy and I'm bored with earth now can I
