Safe Mode: On
Planned Obsolescence Part 1 of 3

Products are designed to break down so we keep consuming. We need to take back control and save the environment and stop getting ripped off. We are a 100 years behind on technology that is owned by the major corporations. Help wake people up and do something about it!

  • Some products are designed with Obsolescence and Jet ink printers are the worse offenders, that's why I don't use them.

    But most products have a limited life time that's why they are cheaper than something that designed to last 50 years.
    Over all thing's failing in a predictable manner is not a big deal.
    Better than then them being to costly to buy or failing way before there useful life times.

  • One of the great flaws of capitalism.

  • The world will continue to be as it is until everyone painfully learns why its simply better and easier to do things the right way.
    There's too many variables to elaborate on one comment, so a simple generalization of all the unfavorable events that happen everywhere at once is good enough.
    Peace.

    • @Orwellian_Society

      Regardless of how painfully we learn, practice leads to something else. We may hurt ourselves, but I'm OK with that. Because nature will go on.

    • @T0M65 Mandatory independent testing of parts with a label with the expected life span. Then you could go further and tax the recycling / waste of the product based on this time.

      It's hard to know what product is expensive because of greed or because of good quality.

  • You're welcome! I found this on Youtube a while ago but as more and more people started watching it they have now deleted it. Luckily I got it just before and was able to upload it here. I left it with the original name as it was posted on there. There are a few films out there but i checked and hardly any of them exceeded 15 mins. This is 52 mins in total. Apologies for bad quality, had to split file and convert it for it to fit within the upload limit from liveleak. Haven't yet become a f More..
