My grandmother is over 80 years old. She sometimes wanders around in the village, and she sees a stick/a plank on the side of the road, and she also picks them home. The biggest difference between their generation and ours is that they can’t understand what industry is, and even the term “industry” has never been used. They have never seen the power of industry in their lives. In their world, the value of manual labor is the only measure of the value of objects. The same thing can be completely different in your eyes from your grandparents’ eyes. For example, a fried chicken wings, you see the white chicken on the conveyor belt, large-scale breeding farms and fully automated feed, from killing chickens to decomposition, after entering the cold chain, distributed to distributors. Together with thousands of other fried chickens, they are tossed and formed in a frying pan. In the eyes of your grandparents, fried chicken wings means raising local chickens for half a year. After you kill them, you have to boil water and pluck them. After cutting off the two only chicken wings, they are wrapped in flour and fried in a pot of precious cooking oil. . The cost of the latter can be ten times that of the former. Therefore, in the eyes of your grandparents, a one-dollar fried chicken has great labor value, and it is a heinous crime to throw it away at will. In the same way, clothes or fabrics, in your eyes, are a large-scale operation of sewing machines in a textile factory; in their eyes, they are a ball of yarn, which requires three days of manual knitting. You persuade them now that the conditions are good, they don’t need to take advantage of it. But in their eyes, these are not cheap at all, but things that contain huge labor value. You will never be able to explain to them what the low cost brought by industrialization is. In their eyes, a piece of cloth will be sewn for three days and a chicken will be raised for more than half a year. If things outside their worldview cause waste, for example, if you throw an old USB flash drive into the trash can, they probably won’t ask too much, because they don’t know the value of labor. The worldview cannot be compensated by money.
