I thought about something similar to this while going to work: if we have automated machines that can create a surplus of products, that can replace most of our jobs (I’m thinking a retail store where you just buy stuff through a redbox-like kiosk, and the machine spits it out to you like a vending machine.) Then why are we working so hard for stuff that costs so little to make?

One of my guesses is ownership of the machines….

For my personal notes: This is a helpful distinction between experiential products (tennis racquets, books, musical instruments) and consumer products (clothes, jewelry, etc.).

I’m for this policy.

Companies are modern day churches. Not offering salvation in an afterlife, but offering gratification in this life - as always, for a (sacri)price.

a kid from my school sent me a pic an elaborate painting of atticus finch shirtless smoking a blunt while a colt 45 is being poured on him along with a text that read “hot dad 2: dad harder” and this is the closest thing to a sext I have ever received

my mom has been a cop for over 20 years and she is the one who constantly warns me about police aggression and young male cops and told me that if you’re ever alone on a rural road and a cop throws their lights on to put on your four ways and drive to the next gas station before stopping because so many cops are scum and it’s not worth the chance of getting hurt. the fact that SHE feels the need to tell me this shit scares me to death

"The Man Who Fell To Earth" is a great and tragic movie on how a person is capable of amazing things, yet is socially destroyed from the squandering and leveling of jealous and cowardly people who would rather see that everybody is to be & feel exactly the same - difference and multiplicity of what makes life thrive - extinguished.
