Amazon is a perfect #enshittification parable - platforms subsidize end users until they're locked in, then make life good for business customers at users' expense, until *they're* locked in, then claw back all the value they can, leaving just enough to keep the lock-in going.

So Zeit mal wieder die Aluhüte auszupacken.
Sie fragen sich warum viele Unternehmen weiter auf der #Wokeness Welle schwimmen obwohl es nach hinten losgeht?

Die #Schufa kennt ja wohl so ziemlich jeder - aber kennen Sie auch den #CEI?

Den was? Den Corporate Equality Index.
Quasi der "Wokeness-Schufa-Score" welche von der "privaten" NGO Human Rights Campaign (HRC) vergeben wird.

Welche Kriterien man für einen "guten" Score erfüllen muss kann man hier einsehen:…
Die Kriterien unterliegen dabei keiner wie auch immer gearteten staatlichen Kontrolle - man legt selber fest was die Unternehmen denn bitte jetzt zu leisten haben, gern wird der Katalog auch erweitert.

Spannend wird es dann wenn man sich mal die Finanzierung dieser NGO anschaut.

With the #IRSFiles, @propublica ripped away the veil of performative complexity disguising the scams that the ultra-rich use to amass billions and billions (and billions and billions) of dollars, paying next to no tax, or even no tax at all.

Each scam is its own little shell game, a set of semantic and accounting tricks used to gussy up otherwise banal rip-offs. The finance sector has a cute name for this kind of complexity: #MEGO, which stands for "#MyEyesGlazeOver."

#Enshittification is platforms devouring themselves: first they tempt users with goodies. Once users are locked in, goodies are withdrawn and dangled before businesses. Once business customers are stuck, all value is claimed for platform shareholders:…

Enshittification isn't just another way of saying "fraud" or "price gouging" or "wage theft." Enshittification is intrinsically digital, because moving all those goodies around requires the flexibility that only comes with a *digital* businesses.

1/ Who is to blame for America’s gun madness? The answer is simple… "GOP politicians on the take, greed driven gun manufacturers without a heart or soul, #ALEC, the #KochNetwork and a small minority of truly sick #gun addicts all have blood on their hands"
2/ "When #Koch became a leader of #ALEC back in 1995, ALEC's publications proudly touted its #gun agenda and the #SecondAmendment right to bear arms, in contrast to it's recent attempts to distance itself from this agenda."…
3/ In 2005, #NRA lobbyist Marion Hammer pushed the "Castle Doctrine" bill to create legal immunity for shooters claiming self-defense. It was "unanimously adopted by the private and public sector members at that meeting."

Tan lejos como en el 1964 se creó la ley 75, y en 1990 se creo la ley 21. Estas leyes muy sutilmente le conceden exclusividad a los distribuidores de los productos. Básicamente dicen que si tu tienes el contrato de distribución de X producto, nadie más puede venderlo. 3/
