Many of you know the meaning of the word “greed“, but very few of you seem to know how defining it is. Many of you believe that the worst things that happen to humanity are war, murder and famine? No dear, this is just a consequence of greed. Unfortunately, the media will no longer inform you of this because they themselves are obsessed with this greed. Don’t expect them to go against themselves. It seems that the human species is the only one that possesses greed, unlike other animal species that never collect more than they need for a normal life. Strange right. The human species is so blinded that it does not even realize this. If humanity ever ceases to exist, the most likely reason will be apathy.
According to many studies, the human species is the highest intelligence on the planet. If this is so, why hasn’t the human species learned to control its flaws so that it can live in harmony with other species. The simplest answer – he didn’t want to, and now he doesn’t even realize that he has to. The human species is now only thinking about how to survive until next month, and does not care at all what will happen in 20 50 or 100 years. So why should they care, when it is clear that they will not be alive until then. From here derives another basic and pervasive quality for a person – Egoism.
The nature of the human mind is the subject of much research, but no one seems to be working to answer a very simple challenge. For example, why does the slave no longer seek to be free, but wants to be the master himself. Nobody wants to be normal anymore. Everyone strives to be a master and to have slaves under his command. It seems the history of the Roman Empire is about to repeat itself. And everyone knows how that ended.Even worse, no one wants to stop it.
Why does the human species strive to possess much more than it needs? The simplest but incomplete answer is the desire for dominance. While in India people are divided into castes, this notion seems to have been degraded over the years. The levels of human development are no longer measured by intellect, knowledge, enlightenment, but by quantitative gains. How many houses, cars and phones will there be? But this is the desire of the common people, while the desire of the current world elite is no longer measured in this, but in how many people it will be able to dominate.
This human degradation is quite evident in IT as well. Years ago, the richest people were the oil producers, a resource that nature created millions of years ago and gave it to humanity. These sources were occupied by certain people and companies, and they started selling it to us. Can you imagine what audacity?! They have no credit for it, but they behave like owners of a natural resource. But in the 21st century, things have changed. The biggest rich are now the owners of IT companies. of course stock market speculators quickly lined up behind them. While in the 1980s Internet technologies promised something good to happen, and it changed people’s lives and quality of life, at the beginning of the 21st century, things obviously started to degrade. Then there were thousands of companies that produced a product, looking for people’s interest, and now the interest is simply imposed and suggested. IT firms realized that people were fed up with all this false offering and decided to make people dependent on IT. This process is most visible now, with the introduction of AI.
AI was initially presented as a tool to simplify various job functions. However, it is apparent that it seeks to substitute human workers solely for the sake of profit. This is achieved through an extensive propaganda campaign that aims to deceive and manipulate individuals. The reason behind this is quite apparent when looking at the stock market; it is evident that the majority of IT giants’ shares have been decreasing over the past two years. Previously, these companies absorbed smaller businesses to maintain a fresh supply of resources. However, they have now grown so extensively that they are impossible to replicate. Any claims of competition are merely a propaganda ruse.
But let’s look at the facts:
Amazon, originally a book delivery company, has expanded into the IT industry. However, despite expectations for new jobs with good working conditions, the company’s growth has been accompanied by significant exploitation of its employees due to greed. Jeff Bezos, the company’s CEO, has crossed ethical boundaries, leading to employees being forced to urinate in bottles as they are not permitted to use the bathroom. This treatment of workers can be likened to slavery. Although Amazon’s aggressive policies and increased use of robotics may restore the company to previous levels of success, this will come at the expense of its employees, suggesting a lack of concern for people.In fact, Bezos paid more for his divorce than he ever paid his workers.
IBM was once a renowned and innovative company, despite its past business dealings with Hitler’s Nazis. Although money knows no bounds, IBM was deemed a dependable and commendable organization. However, avarice and ineptitude resulted in its downfall, which may have started with Ginni and her incessant transformations, which became synonymous with substandard management. IBM managed to acquire various companies in its pursuit to remain afloat, but ultimately severed ties with GTS, an orphaned company that they ruined and no one was willing to adopt. Presently, it is known as Kyndryl. Apparently, the act of consuming competitors is no longer as fruitful as it was in the year 2000.Now, in the eyes of its workers, this company is synonymous with bureaucracy, bad management and brainwashing. Not that other companies don’t.
Microsoft: The master of survival tactics. Bill Gates, the shrewd entrepreneur, has consistently found ways to endure over the years, developing both meaningful and meaningless software. While many applications are riddled with glitches and overly bulky, sales remain the top priority. In instances where purchases don’t occur naturally, Microsoft obliges consumers and businesses to buy. In times of disastrous malfunction, Gates persistently proposes new products, leaving clients unaware of their similarity until it’s too late. Additionally, vaccines administered at the appropriate moment also contribute to Microsoft’s success. Perhaps the company’s recent triumphs stem from the trendiness of AI and ChatGPT, though some see this as a fleeting novelty. Regardless of the reason, Microsoft continues to receive copious amounts of money. In November of 2021, the organization faced significant hardship, but it swiftly adopted a more aggressive approach toward its clientele, insisting on the use of solely Microsoft products. But the people who work in this company don’t seem to be happy.Greed as Usual.
Facebook‘s financial success is remarkable, considering the platform’s lack of tangible usefulness for people. It transports users from the real world into a virtual one, and it’s concerning how easily people’s value systems can be manipulated. Humanity seems to have degraded in its preference for this small, smoky window over the beauty of nature and the surrounding world. The platform’s success is likely due to human exhibitionism and its appeal to a wider audience. A discussion of Facebook could easily span a whole separate topic, as it is quite extensive. However, unwanted side effects have arisen. The platform has proven useful for organizing real events, which has garnered negative attention from those in power. Additionally, people have used the platform to share inconvenient truths that are not well-received by politicians and world governments. Consequently, censorship has become a reality on the platform; users can no longer express their true thoughts freely. Robots monitor keywords in our so-called democratic and normal world, which is quite alarming. In my personal opinion, Facebook will eventually lead to its own demise, but this is not a concern given its lack of production.Globally, trust in the media is decreasing, as well as in similar platforms where censorship is imposed. That’s why I wonder how similar companies like Facebook manage to keep their income.The greed now it have own Face.
Alphabet Inc, the parent company of Google, was originally designed to be a useful platform for users. However, it has transformed into a problematic entity. Google replaced the once-popular Altavista search engine and was initially a highly effective tool for internet browsing. However, as is common with many tech companies, greed has contributed to Google’s decline. While the company relies heavily on advertising revenue, it has recognized that this is not enough to sustain it. Consequently, Google has acquired smaller companies to eliminate competition. Google’s behavior is not unique in the tech industry, but what makes it problematic is that it relies on the labor of contributors who receive no compensation for their efforts. Examples of this are Maps, Wiki, YouTube, and Waze. These companies allow Google to monetize the work of others while contributing nothing in return. Google has been sued multiple times for engaging in unethical business practices and manipulating search engine results. The root cause of these issues is greed.
This is not an exhaustive compilation of companies that prioritize profit over people. We will periodically supplement this roster with additional firms. Please revisit this page often. I wish to emphasize that this business strategy is unsustainable. In a world with limited resources, the unrestrained growth of these corporations will ultimately result in a collapse. Unfortunately, everyday citizens will bear the brunt of the repercussions. It is imperative that we manage our avarice if we seek to maximize our survival.
