I'm just like Indiana Jones, only more so


I have a truly incapacitating fear of snakes. It's unbelievably intense and affects my life severely.
Except it's not snakes I'm afraid of, but something else. And I'm not so much afraid of it as that I hate it with burning intensity.
This world is full of evil machinery that is not talked about: By that I mean interface tortures.
They appear anywhere you need to interact with any system to get anything done. Many interfaces seem designed to cause maximum pain, every step obscured to make it maximally torturous (that's not quite what happened though).
The clearest example is software, followed by tech support. My most common business interactions involve asking corporations to give me back my money for defective products, and each instance has ruined a day of my life. Scott Adams calls them confusopolies.
That is how the masses want things to be, as indicated by their unprotesting acceptance (everyone but me of course).
The clearest way I can put it is to point out how difficult it is to just GIVE people money in return for a service.

* = Scientology and the Sea Org also have many painful traps and barriers, but those are the result of meticulous planning instead of brutal indifference. A quite different issue.
