Its not about technology or progress, its about
Valuing life with materials.

I see everyone as mindless working bio robot, slave to money and life pressure. People working so damn hard just to make ends meet. - This must stop, why is it should be this way ?

True story...
A:I need to borrow money to pay my debt
B:Ok, but what debt ?
A;A car and some personal loan I made.
B:You already have a motorcycle, fits for your own need for now, why do you buy a car ? You still pretty much single.
A: It normal for .... I .... I.... (fell into silent tears)

He was beaten by life based on materialistic value and greed.
Capitalism + Greed = Life pressure
Socialism + Sharing = Utopia

A mobile/handphone is just that but an iPhone is a mobile/handphone that have "status".
A computer these days is turning to a necessity, a computer with water cooled processor with an alien face stuck to it have "status".

A computer is comfort, an alienware is greed. A mobile is comfort, the latest iPhone is greed.

Wikipedia
Greed is the inordinate desire to possess wealth, goods, or objects of abstract value with the intention to keep it for one's self, far beyond the dictates of basic survival and comfort. It is applied to a markedly high desire for and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.

Im no luddite. I dont have a problem with technology. I have a problem with gross dispays of greed and unbridled envy. That is what capitalism is.

I dont like it because it makes people stupid because they value the wrong things. Here we are living in a world where a corporatist like Steve jobbs is sold as sime kind of hero. He was great at exploiting people. Thats about it. Yet morons will worship him for rebranding existing technology and buying out competition. Yay! People are stupid.

What if some people just like having lots of stuff? Is that the same thing as being greedy?

I have to commend you on your enthusiastic endevour. You have grown so much my little Germanicus.
From the early times venturing out into the world of ATS with I'm Hitler's baby" through your formative period of many many posts a day (it seemed).
You have now blossomed into fully maturity


I am proud to say "I knew you when....."

How fast they grow and leave the nest

It's much easier to contact and take pictures the ladies your not getting on my Iphone. I do see your point on some of the rant but most of it sounds like scorned hillbilly that can't keep up with technology.

my 2 cents

I love how people are trying to turn this around...

"you just cant get the girls"
"you just can't keep up with technology"
"you are just jealous of people with lots of stuff"

You people really don't understand anything do you...

It's all right, I understand you're just trying to shield your ego...

I'm laughing my ASS OFF. Great thread.

Basically the guy has no dough AND a small penis so he's mad at the rest of us with money and a less then small penis.

Is this off topic?

Sounds to me that someone in their Moms basement is experiencing a mild case of Sour Grapes.
It will be okay little man. God save the queen and have a nice day

Was this a poem? It was a good message, almost poetic. Keep all those feelings, but do no harm. By the time you are my age, the only thing you feel is how your joints hurt from 32 years of nursing.

Such an angry little man! You sit there, with your avatar showing a perfectly modern faux hawk. Looks like someone is a hypocrite.

Funny thing is, i bet many of these "plastic people" you rant about are much happier (if obviously more plastic) than you. If you were as confident as you say you are, you simply would not feel the need to post such tripe, would you?
