Alright so uh… neocapitalism is stupid and I hate it, and it’s really bad.
What is it?
It’s exploiting search algorithms for cash.
An example: the whole Spiderman and Elsa/Kinder Suprise Egg openings/Finger Family/ Nursery Rhymes.
Basically, low quality/low price film uploaded using bots and sent to children 1–6 months old (estimates) on an app called YouTube Kids along with plenty of advertisements, creating some revenue for the uploader, and more for Alphabet/Google.
This causes a lot of problems. Namely — constant exposure to low-quality content for a large percentage of the younger population.
YouTube doesn’t care. In fact, they give verified status to channels that VERY clearly abuse search algorithms.
There’s also a similar trend in current flash games involving subpar Elsa/Disney princess titles in mass quantities. App stores of all kinds are filled to the brim with the same garbage.
So, what’s the issue?
Nobody knows what a generation raised on low quality content is going to look like. It’s unimaginable — adults, existing who grew up playing Elsa Pregnant Surgery games and watching Five Nights At Freddies Funny Sexy Montages.
It’s possible they’ll grow up to have nostoglia for shitty low quality stuff, with vaporwave’s predicted resurgence in the future. Maybe they’ll grow up and cringe at how stupid their tastes were, like we’ve seen with goths and other trend victims.
But the possibilty that worries me the most… is just a generation of really stupid people.
Just… dumb idiots who’ll watch Spiderman Reboot 17 and Frozen 8: Revenge of The Fire King and gamble away all of their money on Adult Kinder Eggs (Suprise Beer Inside.)
The worst part: there’s nothing you can do, but become one of those who — at their minimum wage job, one day — looked around and thought “this sucks… I’m going to upload videos of my family playing with toys and opening up easter eggs and make six figures.”
Even though the search algorithm exploitation market is oversaturated, a niche will always exist that nobody found or saw any significance in.
That’s where the money is.
