How can consumers buy consumer goods, when no one has money and everyone is locked in a camp? That's not a sustainable business model, and you'd better believe they're in it for the money

You may have temporarily amnesia-ed yourself from the horrible truth that there is money--lots of money--in keeping people interned.

Especially when you consider the slave labor that provides to make those consumer goods.....

It can only go so far though. They cannot put the cat back in the bag. People are accustomed to a certain level of freedom and prosperity. Look at the amount of unrest around the world already...

Yeah. Things like automation will surely be taken advantage of in order to spread moral degeneracy in society. But the status quo will take a long time to change. They already advanced a lot in terms of censorship.

True, but so has people's understanding of it and lack of tolerance for it. It's forever a cat-and-mouse game. The same tactics cannot be used for too long or the masses figure them out and overcome them
