We are not the real owners of
anything anymore. We just borrow things from the System. Shiny, colorful
things, we agree to play with for a fee. A fee for life.
Because this system works only if you keep working to buy new things.
Not important if they are good things, just buy new crap, even better like that.
So everything gets outdated soon.
You home, stuff, car and computer, you will pay for everything you have for all
of your life. All the time: a monthly fee, forever until you die. That’s the
future; nothing is really yours. LAAS – Life As A Service.
You will rent your life.
I don’t support everything Anonymous do, particularly their scatter gun approach to targets, but this quote accompanying their release of 12 million Apple iPhone and iPad device identifiers found on an FBI computer could not be more germane today.
That might be small beer compared to the greater concerns of hacking and tracking that they raise but I’m getting increasingly annoyed at not being able to access songs, films and books that I have paid for on one device or platform or another. Maybe a return to physical CDs or LPs and books is the way to go. or maybe Bruce Willis can come to our rescue. Yippee-ki-yay, motherfucker.
