A Boring Dystopia

The world we live in is far different from the world a century ago. Countless technologies and innovations have come out, new business fields created entirely, new laws governing companies, you name it! It’s a really different place. But one thing I’ve noticed when it comes to the “money” section of life is that any entity (saying this because it’s better than company) is really only trying to do one of two things.

Now I’m sure you don’t want to have to read this entire article just to figure out what those things are. So I’ll just spill it out right here and right now:

Any entity in the money scheme of life is either trying to sell everyone something or help another entity sell something.

That’s right! You’re either in the advertising sector or the sales sector- and there’s no other option. Unless of course you volunteer a free product or service- but we’re just going to ignore that sector for now.

Now while my discovery may not be quite as thrilling as you would have hoped and you think it’s the bullshit generic opinion- let me show you just how much it actually applies to various areas of any individual’s life.

It’s important that you remember this rule of my discovery- selling refers to selling a good and/or a SERVICE. So you can’t blow my entire argument out of the water just by saying, “But…but Mason! Don’t garbage men just pick up people’s trash, and mailmen just deliver mail? Those people aren’t selling me anything.” Well yes they are my friend. In fact- they are hired by a company which therefor makes them part of that company while they are working. Garbage companies are selling you the service of trash removal and the employee is carrying out that service. I put that in bold because I think it could be debated that “carrying out a service” could possibly be considered another thing an entity does. But as of now I don’t consider it to be one.

Now here’s something interesting. As I’ve been writing this article I’ve come to find that I think I’ve contradicted myself. I don’t think there’s two things that entities do at all in the money world. There’s only one! Allow me to explain to both you and myself so I can make sure I’m right.

I was originally going to make the argument that advertising entities are attempting to sell what other entities need help selling. However, I’ve come to see that them advertising is just yet another service being sold in its self. So really all anyone who makes an income in the world is trying to do (companies and people both) is sell something to everyone else.

Ah look, I did end up making you read the whole article…

Crazy Shit.
