    In this country, everyone is trying to sell you something

    I guess that's the ultimate goal of capitalism. Everyone selling something, everyone buying something. Because everyone needs something. The key to riches is exploiting the needs of others.

    But needs are limited, so what do you do? You convert the "wants" to needs. All you need to do is convert people into mindless consumer droids.

    Every single day, despite signing up to the "Do not call" list. I still get a call or two a day asking to by things, services or products that I don't want, need or even care to hear about.

    The techniques they use are simple. Intimidation, pushing, promising "free" stuff, falsifying hope, appealing to your politeness and catching you in that wrong time of day when you would just say .. yes .. whatever!

    Sadly, in the last couple of visits to Jordan, I faced the same techniques. Couple of young men/women, nicely dressed, will approach you as you enter your favorite theatre, shopping center or whatever and they will be all over you and not leave you alone taking advantage mostly of people's natural tendency to avoid a scene. They also work by trying to some unworthy products to the want, or even better need, and sometimes the "must have"

    If there is one thing I hate about capitalism, it's this endless exploitation ... and there is no end to it ...
