Why Do Things Keep Getting "Sucky-er?"

Think about all the man (people) hours that had to go into grading tests before the scantron machine for multiple choice tests was invented and implemented. It saves literally millions of hours of man power per week. Or, think of all the real estate that had to go into saving hard-copy medical records, which can now fit on a hard drive the size of a pocket U.S. Constitution.
The point is that technological advancements should be making life cheaper and easier (especially Education and Healthcare), but it in fact has become more time consuming, expensive, and complicated. This is mostly due to the fact that government sticks its tentacles into things with subsidies and bureaucratic regulation as a form of social control and experimentation. Parasitic entities like insurance companies bid up the costs of healthcare to ridiculous unaffordable prices. Formal Institutional Education has become a subsidized black hole of unproductive nothingness. Corporations, while having the rights of a person, are soulless, greedy, and cumbersome. Everyone knows the frustration of trying to get customer service while talking to a phone recording. And if you do get a person, your request goes down a black hole.
Does it have to be this way? Is it intentional or just some coincidence? Most people over a few decades old and with a few brain cells acknowledge it, but no one seems to wonder why. It is this way because our globalist oligarchs are narcissistic control freaks, so it has to be this way. When O'Brien was "breaking" Winston in ‘Nineteen Eighty-four' he explained the purpose of their system.
O’Brien: How does one man assert his power over another, Winston?
Winston: By making him suffer:
O’Brien: Exactly. By making him suffer. Obedience is not enough. Unless he is suffering, how can you be sure that he is obeying your will and not his own? Power is in inflicting pain and humiliation. Power is in tearing human minds to pieces and putting them together again in new shapes of your own choosing. Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain.
If you feel like you are overworked, over-stimulated, that your time is wasted, that everything is inefficient, and that you are metaphorically suffocating stuffed in a box, then, Congratulations! You are lucid. One cannot expect to escape his bars if he cannot see them.
It can seem confusing why people with so much money want more. The answer is that it’s not about them having more, it’s about us having less. Projecting people like Zuckerberg, Gates, and Bezos in the media is just another form of social conditioning to make you angry and jealous, and thus, your suffering (their power control mechanism) is increased. By the way, compared to the real “old money” in this world, those guys are nickel and dimers. Once one has enough money, then one has complete power and control over hiding one’s money. That is about the point when one attains temporary godhood at the cost of one’s eternal soul.
Hillary practiced being obnoxious in the mirror. She watched recordings of herself and made adjustments. Her purpose was to extract negative emotions out of you. Let’s face it, she did a great job. She’s a great actress. They feed off hatred because it fuels their control mechanisms. All these ridiculous “leftist snowflake stories” in the so called “alternative media” about airplane comfort animals and bearded-lady SJW freaks with all kinds of demands are just there to trigger the so-called “woke right.” The global oligarchs are hands-on and all powerful when it comes to media. If an outlet that doesn’t adhere to the construct gets too big, it gets silenced or forcibly modified.
The more time you focus on Hillary, the less time you have to focus on the real heroes: the standup men and women who work hard actually producing for a living (and no, flying halfway across the world to shoot people on camels and guard poppy fields is not productive). The more you hate, the less you love; and the more you suffer, the more their power grows. Please see my related article: Do the 'Proles' deserve 'Big Brother'
Furthermore, Hillary is not the problem. She is a symbolic projection of the problem. Railing against Hillary is like railing against an object, like a crucifix. You might as well get mad at a picture of a hammer because it won’t drive a nail.

It's difficult to avoid falling into the unproductive negativity trap. I still do it even though I know I'm doing it, but I'm getting better at avoiding it as I get older. Social conditioning habits take time and conscious effort to break.
I will leave you with a haunting and daunting quote from the from the 2003 Television docudrama "George Orwell - A Life in Pictures":
In our world there will be no emotions except fear, rage, triumph, and self-abasement. The sex instinct will be eradicated. We shall abolish the orgasm. There will be no loyalty, except loyalty toward the Party. But always there will be the intoxication of power. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-forever. The moral to be drawn from this dangerous nightmare situation is a simple one: Don’t let it happen. It depends on you.

@dingle things get worse because entropy increases.
To reduce entropy you would need to work, but everybody wants free shit. And God hates them.
What do you expect?
@dontgive I don't think it automatically follows that the technology that makes things cheaper, would put people out of a job. Everything should become cheaper to afford, while wages stay the same or increase.
@dingle said in Why Do Things Keep Getting "Sucky-er?":

It is in many ways cheaper, evidenced by a shitload of people not in the workforce. Bumming has become a lifestyle. The new normal.
These are from the West coast, but is becoming a epidemic in in all major population centers.
The US is becoming its own "shithole" country.
