People actually make this claim? rolls eyes. In all of these argument articles, I think we would be doing the article a better position if we could find actual real world uses, examples we can link to in ads, or in religious/political propaganda if possible. --Green mowse.pngGodotWhen I graduated, Cognative Science of Religion didn't even exist! now it's everywhere 18:23, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

I've heard it as a straw man argument from Luddites before, and some "family values" types. ТyrannisPlead 19:49, 7 June 2012 (UTC)

More examples[edit]

How about more examples, if possible?--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 09:00, 13 January 2020 (UTC)

It's common in advertising where products are regularly billed as "new" and customers rush to get the latest mobile phone even if it's worse/slower/buggier/more expensive. It's also seen in tech stock exchange bubbles, the enthusiasm for things like blockchains, transhumanism, techno-libertarianism, etc. This needs worked up into a form suitable for the article. --Annanoon (talk) 13:50, 13 January 2020 (UTC)
Good idea.--Deli-delibirda! (talk) 08:50, 14 January 2020 (UTC)
