One of the most depressing things about living in a capitalist society is realizing how much human effort is devoted to useless, and often harmful things like ads. Some of the brightest people in the world are wasting their talent on this garbage while our planet is dying.


@yogthos a former employer of mine has a job that is something like "Manager of Software Product Activation".

The entire job of this person, and their team, is to maintain the activation tool and services that limit the functionality of the company's *actual* software products in accordance to what the user has or hasn't paid for.

Literally they are the "preventer of IT" department. Not only do they not directly produce some thing, their job is to make things *less* useful.

How depressing.



We're quite literally being distracted....people that are struggling to keep their heads above water don't question the status quo :(
