I’ve had the same feelings you express for a while but have not been able to articulate it until recently. Thanks for sharing :)
I’ve written a blog post myself on the same kind of subject actually. It’s not precisely the same but covers similar ground. I’ve been really conscious about sharing it as I’m wary of pissing people off (not shared on social media yet) but I think I need to be brave and do it anyway.
