All very good points, waiting for counter points.
 
Any good counter-arguments to this?

Nintendo's share price has dropped by 17% and dumped over $6 billion in market cap since investors realized the company doesn't actually make Pokémon GO. #AppsGames #News #Nintendo

Are you free?
In this provocative post, Nassim Nicholas Taleb says we are slaves to our employers & they want it that way.

It's true - without complete financial independence, you're somewhat at the mercy of your income source. But there are reasons for optimism:

- We have more tools than ever to pursue the life we want.

- We now have power to choose our obligations, especially women & minorities who've had few options historically.

- Most are free of the toil & drudgery of working for basic necessities. Many of the things we work for are wants, not needs. We can control them as we chase our ambitions.

Are you optimistic about being more free in the #future?

A Harvard trained mathematician, O’Neil spent the last several years teaching at Barnard, working for DE Shaw, one of the world’s leading hedge funds, and launching a technology start up designed to deliver targeted advertising. Her key takeaway from the last two experiences—that Big Data is increasing inequality and threatening democracy —is the subject of her important new book, Weapons of Math Destruction, out on September 6.
The math that determines your whole life is racist & predatory, says Cathy O'Neil

America's Ugly Strip Malls Were Caused By Government Regulation

The common wisdom is that they result from “the market,” as monuments to American capitalism and consumerism. But that is a big fat myth—they have been forced into existence by government regulations: http://on.forbes.com/6269B4DbW
