Value III

I am not so sure Sonny, most business models disregard the energetic input available to reproduce cyberspace and consumption.

Advertising simply uses natural resources to promote the further use of natural resources. If natural resources are limited, and I can assure you they are, then the business model actually has no social or environmental value.

That is to say the value is purely speculative, and subject to the ability to produce paper/digital profits from the increased use of natural resources.

Our value system is increasingly based on securing short term profits through longer term destruction. Those that profit promote this as a belief which many buy into because the religiosity doesn’t mention the side effects.

Collectively the human race is addicted to a system that promotes anthropogenic egotistical value above life itself. For example, the industry of war is increasingly valuable even though we know the implications.

Come you masters of war

Ah, a learned man, to paraphrase the “Thucydides trap” in postmodernist terms:

‘What makes modern war inevitable is the commercial interest in war’

The military industrial complex is what has caused the conflagration that is the “Arab Spring”‘, a trap well sprung indeed.

What would peace profit the masters of war!

 

which is of course why bob should’ve won the peace prize and not the literature prize, except of course that no one took him literally
