    Hope you guys find this topic interesting? Feel free to give feedback.
    I've got another political theory video in the pipeline which should be really neat (not unlike the North Korea one). Probably the video after next, but I think it's going to be good!

    also with your fake currency make sure different purchases have different conversion ratios, for example you could pay $5 for 50 coins or you could pay $9 for 100 coins. if you do this then 1. players will be incentivised to pay more money and 2. they wont be able to easily convert your currency back to real money so when they spend it they wont know how much they're actually spending.

    No way to return imo. While people are paying money for that garbage, corporations continue abusing these psychological technics, polishing their way to use our genetic/mind vulnerabilities to sell crap.

    People need their 'god' - something they attend to religiously. Since they abandon classical religion they need to find something else to anchor them. Some is social media, some is videos, some is games. It is of course healthier to devote oneself to good relationships or productive hobbies but I do not think there is inherently anything wrong in people trying to cling themselves to 'something'.

    This is in the context of games, which is easy to implement cause there are tons of other example games. Now, I would make an utility app "pay-to-win"?
