    The Rationality of Interdependence vs. Independence (+ Self-Reliance + Inter-Reliance) 

    Many people are upset. They are upset with something the Donald did. Apparently, they feel somewhat dependent on stuff Donald does.

    Donald does stupid stuff – and so do you. We all do stupid stuff. Whether or not Donald realizes he does stupid stuff is not about you or me – it is simply about Donald.

    You don’t depend on Donald. You may feel as though you depend on Donald, but you are still free to do your own thing. You can always do the right thing even if Donald does something wrong.

    You may say I’m a dreamer, but I couldn’t care less what someone screams into a megaphone.

    This isn’t about me. Or someone. Life is about all of us.

    Whether we are or aren’t living a life of dependency depends on what you think. If you think you can live without breathing air, feel free to go right ahead and live that way. I don’t think that way, so perhaps I will choose not to rely on you.

    What I rely on is my decision.

    I don’t rely on „fake news“ or even retard media in general.

    What you choose to rely on is up to you. I hope you will be able to choose wisely, and I am also willing to help you – but it really does depend on what you want and on what you choose to do.

    50 Pages of Google 

    Retard media exploit the their audience’s lack of media literacy. For example, people will pay Google money in order to get their website listed in the search engine (or they will pay for “search engine optimization” [SEO] services). Either way: they are paying money because they lack the literacy skills required to create websites, apps and other business communications. They are simply not literate enough to communicate directly with their target audience(s). Whether they pay Google or Facebook, the local newspaper, a PR (public relations), marketing or advertising agency — regardless of which intermediary they pay: the payment (sometimes such “services” are actually referred to as “paid media”) is a clear signal they they are so illiterate that they are basically unable to communicate themselves.

    By far, the vast majority of such business communications are “handled” by Google. Google’s profit is directly proportional to the degree of online businesses’ illiteracy. Very far behind this vast media monopoly are a bunch of other media companies that also cater to such illiterate business people, wannabe entrepreneurs and “small and medium enterprises” ([SME] or [SMB]). All of these small companies and small businesses are takeover targets. If a small company is very profitable, then the large “retard media” companies they outsource their business communications to (whether Google, Facebook, Yahoo, LinkedIn, or some other not-yet-acquired startups) will probably be acquired by those companies who are very much “in the know” about the level of business activity happening.

    These very large retard media companies are definitely scrutinizing the so-called “big data” small and medium businesses are exchanging across these retard media channels. This isn’t rocket science: Google bought Youtube because they saw how much people used Youtube. Facebook bought Whatsapp because they want this data. Almost every billion-dollar unicorn is moving large amounts of data over channels owned by the biggest retard media companies — and either these companies are acquired early, or they are outright launched by angel investment support from such big media conglomerates… and then promoted to equally illiterate consumers. There are dozens of such retard media startups littering the front pages of the business section of newspapers (and most of these newspapers are either controlled or also owned outright by retard media investors).

    No business that is based on the illiteracy of both the owners as well as the consumers of the product or service in question is a business with a future. Either the business will be acquired, or it will fail — end of story.

    The only way for businesses and consumers to escape this death spiral is to acquire media literacy skills — to become sufficiently literate themselves… — and thereby to liberate themselves from an otherwise destitute dependency on retard media for a short term bare minimum of life support.

    You Need Nothing in Order to Be Independent 

    Let me tell you why I don’t feel independent.

    I need air to breathe. I need water to drink. I need many things more.

    Needing something isn’t bad — it is a very obvious way to explain the simple fact that to make independence a goal is a folly, and that anyone who does so is simply setting themselves up for failure.
