I think this is one of the reasons our (((masters))) have caused so many acronyms to be put into common use, starting with small children in the schools; it gets them used to simply parroting a pavlovian response to any question or point raised to them rather than thinking about or really understanding the thing. To use a term from 1984 they're doubleplusgood duck-speakers ha ha.Yeah the unavailability of so much stuff is very confusing. I hear these stories about container ships that used to take 1 month to arrive from abroad now take 4. Because apparently there is huge congestion unloading them? I mean if that is true, can't we get the navy involved in taking the ships from port to docking bay? But I'm suspicious of all these things anyway.
I've found in general no one can explain anything without resorting to buzzwords (this has been an issue for years but gotten much worse in the pandemic).
it's because of the global supply chain.
It's because of the market.
It's because of the pandemic.
It's because of the chip shortage (not a buzzword but doesn't explain anything)
People just throw around these buzzwords all the time. I first noticed it when dating a doctor. She absolutely could not explain things in plain language (ie renal failure means your kidneys stop working correctly). People like this are low intelligence.
