Idiocracy and Technology

Left as a comment on this post by the esteemed Doug Hill, author of Not So Fast.


The movie Idiocracy showed people in their recliner chairs, reduced to insignificant blobs of meat that lacked basic intelligence. Everything ordered from the Internet, and all of it was major brand name.

Endless media consumption, medicine vending machines, and Monster truck shows.

Is that where we really want to head?

Sad thing is, most people will read these types of articles and write them off as some “crank” had written them. These people will think that some Luddite is spouting nonsense (not knowing what the Luddites were).

So the brands will win with their normalcy-invading brand advertising. The drones will become a thing because endless, unadulterated “Progress ™” is NECESSARY DANG IT!

You Have To CHOOSE To Make Your Life Better…It Won’t Be Done For You…

Come on people…really?

Do you really think you can get to a “good life” for yourself by letting any bigger “agencies”, circumstances, the lottery, or other environmental issues be in control?

Nope. It doesn’t work that way.  Never will, no matter how much you “hope” that will happen.  No one “owes” you anything for free, and no one is going to provide you a “break” in life until you’ve earned it…period.

The above-listed items are only there to provide a “minimum” standard of life, period, end of story.

If you want something more, you’ve got to create it.  You’ve got to work hard and make it happen…or it won’t happen…period. It’s on you to create the life you desire, and the results will reflect how well you are creating that life…period…no one else is to blame for the life you have, except you.  That’s the bottom line.

Oh and one more thing (and the inspiration for this post)…if you spend time on the Internet writing foul insults about successful people without conclusive and direct evidence to back up your claims…shame on you.  Just because you don’t enjoy a successful lifestyle, don’t rip down the life of someone else who is successful based on only opinion or conjecture.  There are scammers out there, no doubt, but they actually comprise of less than 5% of all business owners out there…so if you’re placing the permanent record on the Internet before proving it…please don’t.

There’s a good chance (a 95% chance) that the person you’re ripping has part of their life ruined by what you’re saying without just cause, also that record stays on the Internet forever, so please…at least do the decent thing and think about that before placing a permanent record online.

Instead, go create something, add value to someone else’s life, or start a business to deliver value to a community.  We look forward to your offering. 🙂  Oh yeah, your pocketbook will thank you too.
