You broke the spell with "people need to be educated."
The problem is that people actually work pretty hard to not learn things. Knowledge is seen as a burden and a responsibility and they don't have time for it. And I'm not going to rant about the masses being a bunch of stupid sheep either, because frankly, there are times when I agree with the people on this. While I am perfectly capable of fixing and repairing nearly everything I have ever come in contact with, there are times when it is simply more appealing to pay someone to take care of things for me. Not only am I released from the burden of thought and knowledge, but of responsibility as well! Now I can point fingers at someone else when it goes wrong.
And that is the problem that we, the people, are literally asking for. It would be nice if people accepted the good old days when you had to learn to use something because even though it was a burden, they knew more about what they were dealing with and how to deal with it better. Those days are gone. And we know we can't trust companies to be benevolent. Their interests will always come first. Their partners' interests will come second, third and fourth. The law will come in fifth and the user comes in somewhere after that. We know that companies are willing to upset the law and the user in order to make profit. We know that companies are willing to upset the law and the user in order to appease a partner. We know it because we have seen it already. And we know that business most always sides with the government before it will side with its customers... been there and done that too right?
If there is any education that people need, it is that their [dollar] votes are all being cast in the wrong way. And by voting with their dollars spent, they are perpetuating the problems we all face. The nice thing about voting with dollars is that failure to vote doesn't mean some jackass will get into office... it just means they get less capital with which to continue abusing the public. But right now the public is pretty well hypnotized. They think they need to buy everything on credit and worship the "credit score god." They think they need to buy the latest versions of the latest tech without the slightest bit of understanding of what they are buying or how it benefits them. The sneeches all want stars on thars and that's all they care about.
