Just think what humanity could accomplish if we weren’t all so preoccupied with making someone else richer.

In 2019, humanity collectively spent $563 billion (USD) on advertising. Millions of people devoted countless hours to creating gaudy banners to inconvenience people on the internet, and banal short videos for people to ignore while watching TV. All because some old guys in suits wanted 2% greater profit margins which they refuse to share with their workers.

In 2020, nature attempted to remind humanity of the futility in this kind of nonsense. Humanity has not yet understood this message.

thanks for the reminder (this is not a sarcastic thanks) that my growing nostalgia for the way things were back in early spring, however ultimately misguided and wrong, was not baseless
