Yuwie.com is a networking website that pays its members for various contributions. In the meantime, businessmen are coming up with new ways to promote their products: pay people to advertise.

The global landscape is not what it used to look like 30 years ago, advertisement has overtaken it. Everywhere we go, from subway stations to taxis and buses to advertisement boards displayed on streets and highways, one can not escape seeing the promotion of a product. Now, promoters have come to think about paying regular citizens to advertise on their cars, and why not, advertise wearing t-shirts, in their homes, offices, on their backpacks or suitcases, basically anywhere there is space to advertise.

That would mean that we could make a reasonable income without having much to do. All it takes to make money from Yuwie.com is make its webpage as attractive as possible for others to view as often as possible. The more people accept view your invitation to join the website, the more money you make. And one can make up to 800 USD a month just through doing that. How much money would one make from putting a Coca-Cola t-shirt or a Starbucks sign on his t-shirt?

The idea might sound crazy at first, but when people will realize that it’s easy money, they will quickly accept the idea. And this alternative source of income might mean that, one day, people will no longer have to work, as they will make a reasonable amount of money out of advertising.

That’s right. There will be no more weekends, no more office hours, no more having to wake up early in the morning to go to work. But in that case, who will take care of the means of production? Of course, the most ambitious people will still work, but by then, most means of production will have been outsourced to poorer, Third World countries, which means that Third World countries will work for richer countries in exchange for an income and a better life.

And who will take care of the few jobs that are necessary to keep a country running? Garbage men, handymen, waiters, receptionists, security guards, firemen, policemen, military officials will all be “imported people”, or immigrants. The new social hierarchy that will then be observed in advanced countries will be that of:

  1. Entrepreneurs
  2. Advertisers
  3. Immigrants

It will then be clear that immigrants will have a certain role to play, otherwise the plan would be impossible. That is, only a citizen from a certain country will be allowed to make money advertising, leaving foreigners with no other choice than doing “old-fashioned” jobs.

People will soon get there income from alternative ways, leaving studies and traditional ways of making a living useless. Soon, the exploitation of developing countries by advanced countries will become more visible, yet more accepted by people from advanced countries, who see that exploitation as a blessing, since that’s where all their money and goods come from.

At that point as Fukuyama informs us, history is over and Man has arrived to heaven on earth. Actually, it sounds very much like Herbert Marcuse's "One Dimensional Man or C.S. Lewis' Man without chest." Nietzsche's New Man it ain't, for sure!
