The Most Dramatic, and Somehow Best Take on That Polishing Cloth

The Apple Polishing Cloth Is Everything Wrong With Society - Victoria Song

But the silly dumb thing that makes people laugh inevitably becomes warped into something it wasn’t meant to be. It gets co-opted by the Elon Musks of the world, corporate dingbats with more hair than brains who somehow hold all the power. There’s nothing I, a lowly writer, can do about that, even though I’ve been complicit this entire time. I just wish we could’ve enjoyed the stupid funny thing a bit longer.

It does seem that as everything becomes a meme that nothing can just be chill, it always has to become a thing.
