Google Maps vs Apple Maps vs Waze: Are we being guided to our destination or driven to consume?
Are Humans being manipulated and moved like chess pieces through a Matrix-like game of Life, as we are continually updated on more efficient paths to take? Where one route may give preference to or promote taking us along the toll road, the other is paid to steer us past a Starbucks, (which they know we frequent) or perhaps a Ford Dealership because we searched for “used Ford F-150” just prior to leaving our home.
We all know of dirt road shortcuts, but we are never presented with these options, perhaps due to a lack of commercial or retail options along the route, perhaps because “popular” routes create more traffic which calls for increased gas and energy usage as well as opportunities to monetize you and promote our American Capitalistic Consumerism?
Just as an App thriving from increased usage time, your retail consuming probabilities exponentially increase with each passing moment you spend outside of your home. Turn by turn, each move is strategized and monetized.
When all is said and done, are we all just some cat, dog or Cookie Monster emoji icon upon a Waze game board, literally being played on a modern Illuminati influenced video game platform???
Perhaps we are not just cattle being domesticated and raised as obedient consumers.
Perhaps subliminal advertising is but an illusive sacred cow...
