Funny. They bring in automation, now they claim we are obese or almost obese. We have to “pay” to work, when the manual labor really served two purposes (exercise & paying bills). Your point is well taken. Everything we’ve been sold is a bunch of bull. From cars to medicine, to food.
In America, marketing has done a number on our mind, bodies, and pocketbooks. Seems like the marketing has evolved using new tricks. The people don’t really care. We are at a point of no return. Just look at how and why we select leaders. Enough said!
