we can't wipe out all technical debt because it would be unfair to me, who already paid off my technical debt

In computer science it's easy to get caught up in the minutiae of technical details. Sometimes you gotta take a step back and look at the big picture. Capitalism is destroying the planet. There are no technical solutions, only political ones. If you're in the UK,

Exactly but there’s no one out there who will pursue FDA approval without the possibility of massive profits (to be fair, the process is expensive). We need socialized pharma that isn’t profit motivated.

Yeah, drug companies will only pursue FDA approval for their “improved” versions when perfectly good versions exist. Pharma companies are such leeches on society. They already get about half their research funding from public sources, we should make it 100% and nationalize them.

Amazon Ring in a reasonable society (i.e. not 100% driven by capitalist greed) would be immediately banned as a violation of privacy. Taking a picture in public is one thing, a private company and the police with omniscient surveillance and no oversight is terrifying.

Life under capitalist healthcare means there are plenty of useful medicines that are unavailable or prohibitively expensive. Not surprised to see has an article about this!
