Doing large scale edits on #openstreetmap really make me realise how small I am.

There are literally billions of us.
"Retail workers are less important than people." BRC
something I sometimes struggle to explain to some of the elder millenials in my life is that the cost of entry into everything gone up AND everything's been hollowed out. Education is more difficult to obtain AND the quality of it has gone down. Renting is more expensive and difficult to get approved for AND the houses are more neglected.
Benefits are more complicated to apply for AND they're worth less.
I feel like there's an ideological cold war out there in tech (and possibly in tech education) between
1. "computers MUST be fully user-programmable or a massive social disaster will occur on the order of Fascism and Communism, but now with pervasive surveillance"
2. "computers are far too dangerous to allow users to control, so they MUST be centrally managed and filtered by a genius tech elite".
I stand firmly in camp 1.
Whenever I see people espousing Camp 2 ideas, I shiver and run.
And now her sisters tumour is back :(
Fuck no. Retailers, please stop fucking us.
Come to think of it, they also offer Flu jabs (which I got 🤷♂️) not because they care about our wellbeing, but because it's cheaper for them.
Doesn't sick pay come out like that? Cheaper to give someone the day off than have it spread through everyone?
Greedy bastards can't even do #Capitalism right
