‘We live in a world where a tree is worth more dead than alive, in a world where a whale is worth more dead than alive. For so long as the economy works in that way and corporations go unregulated, they’re going to continue to destroy trees, to kill whales, to mine the earth, and continue to pull oil out of the ground even though we know it is destroying the planet and we know that it’s going to leave a worse world for future generations. This is short-term thinking based on this religion of “profit at all costs”, as if somehow, magically, each corporation acting in its selfish interest is going to produce the best result.

This has been affecting the environment for a long time. What’s frightening, and what, hopefully, is the last straw that will make us wake up as a civilization to how flawed this theory has been in the first place, is to see that now we are the tree. We are the whale. Our attention can be mined. We are more profitable to a corporation if we’re spending time staring at a screen, staring at an ad, than if we’re spending that time living our life in a rich way.

We’re seeing the results of that today. We’re seeing corporations using powerful artificial intelligence to outsmart us and figure out how to pull our attention toward the things they want us to look at rather than the things that are most consistent with our goals and our values and our lives.

The attention extraction model is not how we want to treat human beings. The fabric of a healthy society depends on us getting off of this corrosive business model. We can demand that these products be designed humanely. We can demand to not be treated as an extractable resource.

The fundamental way that this stuff is designed isn’t going in a good direction. Any of it. It sounds crazy to say that we need to change all that but … that’s what we need to do. We have to.’

— Various speakers, The Social Dilemma (2020)

Conspire is in essence to act behind the back of others.

No corporation, no government, nor any kind of centralized power can prevail without conspiring.

You can be certain they don't like transparency, they restrict access to information which is in fact universal.

They conspire against themselves striving for power, but mostly against the weak and poor.

So don't come to me with the argument that conspiracy theories are far from reality.

Conspiracy is the very basis of this sick society.

"If you have concerns about your technological practices, share them, discuss them, help them to circulate. Technological practices are not individual issues. They have a social dimension that we should make into an issue. Technologies should be on the collective agenda, just like health, work or political participation. We need to talk about technologies."
