T&i :-The Absurdity Of It All

It’s nice to know that holidays bring out the best in people.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way—in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. Charles Dickens

As I read the day after Thanksgiving news I see so many people rioting, all for that favorite gift for someone. Why does it seem that our best qualities are not quality at all. We’ve moved from a society where Love, Family and togetherness has been replaced by I’ve got to have it by any means.

What gets everybody in a frenzy over the latest fracking toy? Print media doesn’t work well with advertising any longer and billboards just clutter the highways. Advertisers need to find ways to get people to buy or get the message out in front of people so they know what offerings are available. Mind altering

Yes I posted the conspiracy type link but who knows governments and businesses are not transparent with the people there are so many things behind the covers we would be appalled at how we are used as guinea pigs for some nefarious plot.

Firms such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook and maybe others spend massive amounts of money on research with a large portion of the research money going towards sales and marketing.

Did you know assets such as digital assets in games don’t really give you anything in return but might make you a better game player đŸ€Ș and give you longer life while playing the game. The real catch is how much money you can spend on those assets. Xbox live Gold subscription’s roblox cards. Minecraft lots of crap to buy for that game too.

So it’s no wonder that parents want to feel special to their kids. BUT we must stop the maddening disregard for spending without limits and put down the baseball bats and be the persons you were meant to be. Oops too late…

One possible consideration is that retail businesses and the government truly enjoys this madness, possibly push through more ways to harm our personal security. Cameras and metrics are everywhere Cover the face.

Your store wants my dollar. I feel that you will-do anything to make my dollar you’re dollar. I blame your bottom line with-all the riots taking place around the globe. All for that grandiose sale. I might add one special gift per each million people to fight over is not the answer.

Thoughts and ideas,
