One day you inherit LCD factories from your ancestors.
However, there doesn’t seem to be a market for LCD manufacturers. There is a huge underground market but nothing much is visible.
“No body wants big LCD TV,” say black and white TV manufacturers.
“Thinking of customers as LCD TV buying object is offensive,” say customers that are not attractive enough to get an LCD.
“The invisible flying teapot hate LCD,” say pro black and white TV religious fundamentalists. “Our proof is faith, and our willingness to die and kill those who disagree,” says one of them while waving a suicide bomb vest. “By the way, do you agree?” Ask one of them.
“LCD TV is so bad, no customers would possibly want it anyway and hence must be prohibited,” say black and white TV sellers. “Also all customers want black and white TV anyway.”
“But then, why not let customers choose?” ask LCD sellers, many of which don’t know what is really going on. “Customers maximize their profit right? If all consensual options are legal, they will automatically pick what’s best for them,” say LCD sellers, not knowing the real issue.
“Well, even though LCD TV is so bad compared to black and white TV, customers would actually buy LCD if both can be done legally and openly under LCD’s customers’ exploitation schemes,” say black and white TV sellers.
“How the hell we know it’s bad if not by letting customers decide?” ask LCD manufacturers.
“Well, why don’t we ask?” say BWTV manufacturers, “Of course any customers that want LCD rather than black and white TV is a slut we need to rehabilitate.”
“I am not a slut,” say most customers.
“See. Most customers chose B&W TV,” say BWTV manufacturers
“Well, that’s not a fair survey here,” say LCD manufacturers, “Look, plenty of those sluts are willing to break the law and buy LCD anyway in underground market. Many of which are attractive enough to get a high percentile black and white TV. Customers must strongly prefer LCD compared to black and white TV.”
“Customers wanting LCD compared to black and white TV is just your opinion. The truth is most customers pick black and white TV” say BWTV manufacturers.
“Well, that’s because most popular better alternatives to B&W TV are illegal. Why not legalize all and see what customers would choose.” say LCD manufacturers.
“We can’t let them be legal because LCD is so bad. Those few poor souls that buy LCD must have done so out of coercion and deception.” say B&W TV sellers.
There we go, a never ending argument in favor of legalization and against it, where the real issue will never show up.
Eventually, customers can vote too. LCD is legal. Black and white TV, simply disappear.
Well not simply. We have very jealous customers whose main agenda is to prevent other customers from getting better TV. Customers’ interest, as a collective goal, defined by the interest of customers that speak the loudest, is still in prevention of LCD legalization.
“Legalization of LCD will put power on the hand of LCD manufacturers to exploit hapless customers whose only option is black and white TV,” says a loud customer representative representing customers too ugly for LCD manufacturers to deal with.
“They’re not our target market anyway, why should we care what those ugly customers bitch about?” Say an LCD manufacturer telling all the other TV peddlers.
“Thinking that customers are LCD consuming object is offensive. You effectively judge what all customers are. Not all customers want LCD. Some do want black and white TV,” say other thoroughly brainwashed TV peddlers. “No body is an expert at what customers want. Different customers want different thing,” added dumb brainwashed TV peddlers.
“Okay, but those who want black and white TV are not my target market anyway. Why the hell should I care what they want. They’re not even pretty even if they do want LCDs, it still won’t work out,” answer one LCD sellers that have done comprehensive customers’ preference and want more customers.
Perhaps there is another solution. “What we need is more government help to allow customers to make their own TV,” says a self serving customer that also like to make home made patched up TV because no TV sellers want to sell their TV to them.
“Customers don’t make their own TV,” say an evolutionist, “They have successfully reproduce through out millions of generation without any significant evolutionary pressure to make their own TV.”
“Customers’ made TV fall below typical market standard. And yet we have all these bullshit regulations forcing buyers to value their lesser work at the same price,” complain most TV manufacturers, “Not to mention that each customer would take 9 months paid leave just to make one TV, while my typical TV suppliers don’t need TV making paid leave.”
“Customers are good at something else, like buying TV.” says LCD manufacturers, “They should let TV manufacturing to us.”
“That’s very sexist and offensive.” says customers’ TV manufacturers’ hybrid and other undesirable customers.
Finally LCD manufacturers find customers oversea and customers oversea often come to the land with the best TV manufacturers to get the best TV avoiding all those argument. Now customers on a land with better TV will have to compete with cheaper customers with no TV.
“We got to protect those customers from TV manufacturers.” say some customers, “Some of those traveling customers have no TV where they come from and hence, they are effectively forced to move here just to get better TV.”
“That is force.” says local customers that find price of TV skyrocketing everywhere due to this bootleg import of foreign customers, “We should prohibit that.”
I mean, c’mon. We know how this will really end. B&W TV will just go extinct. So all customers that can’t afford LCD. B&W TV manufacturers are going bankrupt anyway. 50% of TV in US are not black and white as can be seen at http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/5056489/Nearly-half-of-children-born-out-of-wedlock-official-figures-show.html and customers avoid bankrupt manufacturers like plague. Those who don’t will go poof with TV they choose. Soon all the other countries will follow.
The same goes for any inefficient system. Eventually customers will specialize on what they’re good at and simply buy TV from the best TV producers.
The question is, why isn’t this work faster? Well, a few articles like this going around the world, with a little bandwidth, and B&W TV’s fate will be sealed.
