Marketers know more about you than the government does.

I bought a product at the grocery store a couple of days ago. I didn’t post about it in any way. Now, my Facebook feed has suddenly thrown that product’s page at me several times.

This isn’t the first time that’s happened.

It shows you how marketers keep track of everything you buy, especially if you use credit or bank card, or a store’s “points” card.

We’re all worried about the government tracking us. That’s nothing. Marketers and businesses know a lot more about you, and track everything you do, far more than the government does. They not only track what we buy, but they also track what we look at on the Internet, they track where we go, the places we stop, where we work, our health, what doctors we’re visiting.

We’re all product. We’re not here to live our lives, to love or be loved, to better ourselves or our world. We’re here to consume and to help businesses make more money and sell more stuff.

So get out there, work your ass off, make as much money as you can so you can fulfill your one and only purpose as an American.
