It’s funny. There is a corresponding discussion about individuals in P&R (which I will not link to, as I have no desire to bring P&R here) where someone noted that coal miners want to bring “coal” back in the sense that they want to go back to the way things were with coal mining so they all have the same jobs they used to have. But there is no going back. Technology advances, we do not need the same numbers of miners, or even miners with the same skills that miners had 30-40 years ago.
Companies would rather try to sell you on how their antiquated model is somehow better (when it isn’t) than adapt to the new model. But people are too smart. As Judge Judy says, don’t piss on my leg and tell me it’s raining, and don’t try to tell me that having a physical roll of film that I have to send off to be developed is somehow better than infinite instant pictures.
Time and technology both march on. And it is interesting how both individuals and companies refuse to yield to that and reinvent themselves, and instead try to do everything possible to somehow force the status quo to continue. Neither companies nor individuals usually succeed.
