The Lack of Humanity

Over the years I’ve become suspicious and concerned over the lack of humanity being shown by large organisations, such as banks, universities, software companies, phone companies and internet search engine providers.

I’ve found myself more than several times stuck in a loop duking it out with banks because some app has just helped itself to some of my money that I didn’t consent to. It’s become the hallmark of modern times.

In the UK many charitable organisations have been reduced to effectively nothing, especially those who deal with addiction and mental health. Whilst the world is a buzz at the moment over the topic of mental health, governments seem to be hellbent on doing their absolute worse to damage it.

The era of “the customer is always right” is truly over. Most companies treat you like their own personal slush fund, to be tricked, manipulated, spied on and basically treated like a subject rather than a stakeholder – or customer.

We’ve got toys in children’s rooms now that spy on them:

It is the terrifying stuff of a dystopian nightmare science-fiction, big corporations muscle in taking over people’s lives and don’t seem to have any accountability. If you would have described this world to someone 20 years ago they’d struggle to be believe you.

Is this where the world is heading? An uncaring sadistic hostile takeover of humanity? Where are we heading with this? How are we able to stop it?

We’re all going to lose when abandon principles that took hundreds of thousands of year of evolution to generate.
