Post Waste - planned obselesence
You know how those really old TV's tend to last a really long time, while a new TV today just doesnt last very long? If one of them gets a part such a fuse out in them, you're better off buying a new TV because it costs more to repair the TV. This is such a waste.

How about computers? Software is purposely made to take up more memory and cpu cycles in order to force you to buy a new computer.
If you take a look at Windows XP and Windows Vista, they are pretty much the same operating system, except one takes up more memory. I can give Microsoft credit that they back ported certain Windows Vista features to Windows XP via SP3, but there's certain things about it that are just cool looking but it's pretty useless (aeroglass) besides, you can do the same effects as aeroglass on video cards with less than 256 mb of memory.

Making money is good. But what are they going to do when all the resources run out from making so much shitty product? Id imagine they'd probably have to recycle (Which is already happening in a lot of industries, taking old product back and recycling it.) Though most just get thrown on the landfill.

It's called depreciation. It can be exploited by companies to make a lot of money. More on this later :)

Agreed.
I vote we go to a socialist government. Which is actually the best form, if a "good" person would lead it.
But, power corrupts, so, unless G od wants to get off his thrown (yeah, spelling sucks, sorry) and come lead us, then, horray for capitalism.

I'm personally quite tired of the system in all honesty the deceptive marketing strategy, the failure to produce quality products, The incredible disparity of the working class in comparison to others at a exponentially growing rate which will soon leave us with the rich and the destitute. Pretty much all of it. Unfortunately by the time the middle class realizes how well fucked they are I'll be to old to enjoy the ensuing Anarchy.

People already get, no one is blind to the fact. Changing it is near impossible, and most people are too put forth the effort to do anything at all.

As for cheap products? Is it not obvious? It breaks, with almost no real way to fix it, you buy more. Simple economics.

Actually, G-od would be power. Not obbessed with it, G-od is it. There is no other way to view it if you actually read the books, because all things work through Him.
