Get to know the lies and you will find a common pattern. The big wall consists of that we believe that there are ”natural” limits for our understanding. In the same fashion so called planned obsolescence make you believe that there are ”natural” limits for the life time of products. When you get to know the real facts you understand that the very idea of limits is a construction for both products and our understanding.

This documentary explains how we get deceived to believe in the lies.
”Instead of forcing planned obsolescence on the consumers they were to be seduced by it.”
