The exploding spaceships isn't really a problem. That's kind of the intention of the testing process. The way NASA does things, where everything is meticulously tested and nothing can fail ever, works, but it's slower and more expensive. Destructive testing is faster, and has the benefit of possibly revealing failure modes you didn't forsee.

Yes and no. The reason companies are hiring them is for the image of impartiality they bring. If your firm gets a reputation for just always siding with the company, regardless of what actually happened, that image gets destroyed.

Plus, I'm willing to bet that there's not a whole lot of recurring business from individual companies for this type of service. That would kind of defeat the purpose of being the "neutral third party".

It wasn't so much "not mind" as it was "put up with" since there was no real alternative for the average person. Also, there's the remarkable ability of the human brain to filter out inputs it deems unnecessary. Bad smells that are a constant presence end up being filtered out.

And that's the moment where your real friends will let you know that it's time to take a break.

People put far too much emphasis on hypocrisy. Being a hypocrite has nothing to do with whether you are right or wrong.

If a murderer says "murdering is wrong", does him being a hypocrite make that statement any less true?

I'd be perfectly fine with banning Facebook too. In fact, let's just make the behavior itself illegal, regardless which site engages in it.

While we're at it, let's do something really fun, like making corporate board members legally responsible for their companies actions.

This type of stuff will take forever to get into law, so in the meantime, TikTok can fuck off.

Yeah, but I did. You can't just ignore individual words and respond to something I didn't even say.

You must have learned a different definition for "utopian" and are very much stretching the definition of "post scarcity". We ain't there yet, and aren't going to be for the foreseeable future.

As for the first paragraph, the vast majority of western society doesn't work that way. There are a few major examples in the US that do (Amazon comes to mind) that are rightfully criticized for it (although I wish the criticism came with a side of actual consequences).

They should all be worshipped privately

Pretty sure the bible specifically mentions that too.
