One group has so far escaped blame: designers. […]

design has been to create the branding and collateral of desire.
For those who can afford entry into this world — no harm is
done. For those who can resist the blandishments of this world —
no harm is done. But for those who have neither the education nor
emotional maturity to deal with this, immense harm is done.
Poor people are too stupid to deal with well-designed stuff. OK.
