I can't believe how many otherwise reasonable, self-reliant, get-it-done people are absolutely addicted to modern gew-gaws like eBay and Amazon and Facebook and Google and iPhones and such.
They seem to think that the world cannot survive without these companies, which are generally run by globalists like Zuckerberg and Bezos and Gates who are trying to control everyone's lives.
People will put up with the most egregious intrusions into their lives and freedoms, and complain up street and down alley about how bad they are, and yet the same people pump literally hundreds of billions of dollars into these services.
I mean, we had NONE of these things in 1990 and (as I remember, and I do) we lived just fine; bought what we needed, raised our families, raced, rallied, and rode our old bikes.
Why do so many people seem to think that it's impossible to live without them today, even at the expense of our privacy and freedom?
Just Say NO!
