That's because electrified Capitalism has commodified all aspects of addiction; everything from making it to fighting it so that there can be increasing profit going full circle around a bad kind of self sustaining loop. So that anything, and everything, is subject to over amplification, down content paths that fuel the fantasies of the basest of our base aspects. Because that has always worked. And now we have vast new kinds of instrumentality with which to work both physical reality, and fantasy reality.
This. This is what you really get now when you ask what is "Business As Usual?"
[Post Note: And then you have the problem of some of our new instrumentality actually threatening to do all of our thinking for us. And boy, didn't that just turn out great for the humans in the Matrix, because they had to suffer through having "The One" six times before Neo 6.0 came out. And even then, it may well have been the "Oracle" who kept them in the game. J.V.]
[Post Note: This is also what you get when the Commoditization of Everything is also part of "Business As Usual." J.V.]
