Planned Obsolescence: Shiny Toys for Human Pets
By Aaron Dykes
The game is, of course, rigged.
Admittedly, technological devices all around us, in our everyday lives are planned to fail – to break down, stop working, need frequent replacement. From light bulbs, to automobiles, to computers, software, smart phones and more, planned obsolescence is implemented officially (and unofficially) with products and goods across the marketplace.
This means the lives of products marketed and sold to us are shortened to enhance profits for the companies that make them (making suckers and easy marks out of us as consumers).
Reality is suppressed. That game is rigged, too.
In a wider picture, it is also evidence that we are a kept people – highly entertained by gizmos and gadgets – but on a rather short leash with the things we rely upon. Rather than durable goods that can be used to build a future of personal independence and prosperity, most must turn to the same leading companies that have effectively bought up government channels, steered the public consciousness and even socially engineered the thoughts and attitudes of future generations.
Who has the power, if you can’t even trust that you are getting a fair deal, or a say in how technology is used, pursued, developed or unveiled?
Unveiled? Obviously, many technological and scientific developments have been suppressed. Some are just being planned for future markets; others are simply not suitable to the dynamic between the consumer-populace and the owners.
Truthstream News will be pursuing this idea in greater depth in the forthcoming Episode 4 on Free Energy. So please stay tuned…
But for now, please watch this documentary on the historically known Phoebus Cartel, which fixed light bulb prices globally, and shortened the life of bulbs – offering consumers much less than the technology is capable of yielding.
And ask yourself, where are we headed?
Is it any wonder that Ray Kurzweil, Bill Joy and other founding minds in future technologies see humanity as pets – to be kept, cutely, on a leash, or otherwise pruned, dumped or disposed of?
But hey, the wearable iPhone 9 is supposed to be coming out soon, right?
If THEY could use planned obsolescence globally back then with something so simple as a light bulb, what are they really holding back from us?
And just what is The Impact of Science on Society that Lord Bertrand Russell warned about in 1952… oh yeah, it is the emerging Scientific Dictatorship.
You might want to look that up, because we’re living it.
