Re: Real Atlantis Story Suppressed?
>>That's unlikely, as it would halt the economy. In fact, modern capitalism actually leads to a DECREASE in quality of materials and construction because poor quality are cheaper and also because a lower lifespan of appliances and other products lead to greater consumption and therefore greater profit. Cars, radios, televisions and many other appliances have become LESS durable during the last decades as a consequence of this process.
You assume they had capitalist ideology? An advanced race? You can already see in our society that efficiency will one day make all jobs obsolete. Once free energy comes into play there is no consumerism. They went out at their peak, so where are those atlantian shell suits and plastic shopping bags?
