It's sad that all of you have failed to understand modern capitalism. It's no longer about the highest quality for a set price, it's about the lowest quality for a set price.

20 years ago, Taco Bell was gourmet food, now, it's just shit. What happened here is that some dude gets millions of dollars in a lump sum if he figures out how to make the product 1/2 cent cheaper, he then retires.

Multiply this by 20 years and what you get is a piece of shit on a plate.

I can still wear t shirts from 20 years ago, new ones only last about 4 months.

You folks who speak about the beauty of capitalism are mentally masturbating about the golden age of capitalism, not the true capitalism of today.
