Foundational Value

Building a system on a foundation of value not backed by reality spawns a cancer.

This cancer helplessly latches on to false value to guide its measures of success. It will find no competition as it grows since its reality is maligned, which gives it a clear path towards its flawed definition of growth. It can produce some truly good value, but since this value is not the primary objective, its production will not be optimized nor prioritized. The cancer simply needs to be fed with capital to stay alive. And you best believe these flawed systems are nefariously funded. It's very clear where the US Gov decided to not base its value creation in reality: https://www.wtfhappenedin1971.com
