While it is no secret that exploitative practices are interlaced with capitalistic tendencies, the practices are becoming intolerable. Signing up to pay usually takes only two clicks that are prominently visible whereas cancelation options are hidden away in deep settings requiring multiple clicks. Pricing often feel arbitrary with no reference points. Every large company grows with the intention of exhibiting monopolistic behavior. This is not sustainable and should not be tolerated.

    But at a certain point, it’s still a cop out. And part of the trick. If you drown anyone in enough bullshit, you can’t expect it to all get called out – but that doesn’t mean it’s not all bullshit. It is divide and conquer in another form.

      How so? You can’t work on everything at the same time. And the more immediate and direct an issue is, the more it needs your direct focus.

      Meaning that issues such as dark patterns in cookie signups are automatically lowest-tier-ever-for-once-I-got-fuck-all-left-to-worry-about.

        There is no war other then class war. It all ties back into our way of life. People don’t like to think about it because it’s such a huge cultural and political shift to fix it, that they can more easily imagine a post apocalyptic future. Rather then a future where you and your children aren’t exploited from cradle to grave.

      Covid has shown the world that we can drown the world in bullshit. Before that, people used to care more and companies had a name to lose, now there’s just apathy and greed left.
