Why do you suppose, after all these years, that flour is still sold in the same folded and glued paper bag? The bag that can’t be opened without tearing the bag and spilling flour. I don’t get it, packaging has been changed, in some way, for almost everything else.

Sugar is the same way.
I always open a bag of sugar over the trash can.

I don't (usually...) have a problem with the bags.
What aggravates me is sugar that has been exposed to enough humidity/moisture to turn the whole bag into one 5 pound lump.

While we’re at it why is the flour canister/container that’s part of the dry good set only able to hold exactly one bag of flour? This means you have to be out entirely before you refill it. How about it hold 1.5 bags worth, that way you can refill before being completeky out? First world problems!
Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.
Interesting that I had the same discussion with my wife a couple of days ago. Not only is it difficult to open the bags without tearing them, at best a little flour (or sugar) will have escaped at the top and will always spill no matter what.
“Without its tough spearmen, Hellenic culture would have had nothing to give the world. It would not have lasted long enough. When Greek culture became so sophisticated that its common men would no longer fight to the death, as at Thermopylae, but became devious and clever, a horde of Roman farm boys overran them.”

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" ✡ I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Yeah, we now have packaging that require the use of scissors or tin snips to open. Try opening a bag of potato chips or a blister pack for examples. So, is spilling a tiny bit of flour a worse inconvenience than having to take a trip to the ER to get stitched up because you were foolish enough to try opening a blister pack with a box cutter.
To be blunt I LOATHE modern packaging. If you thinks it's better it's obvious that you aren't old enough to remember when ALL packaging could be opened easily with bare hands. BTW, I'm old enough to remember when breakfast cereal was packaged in a wax paper bag that was simply folded over inside the box. If you want easy opening it really doesn't get much better than that.
I've stopped counting.

Paper flour sacks are about as minimalist packaging as you can get.
I don't use canister sets, especially for flour. Most don't seal, and can't keep out weevils and such.

If I'm just getting the 5#ers, I go for the Wheat Montana brand that comes in the plastic bags with a ziplock closure. Great flour and great packaging. You might see if you can get it down there.

When did that change? Guess I dont eat cereal anymore.

Could be that maybe the fact that flour does have a shelf life, and that just topping off a near empty container can mean you can possibly have several year old flour at the bottom.

Yes! I wholeheartedly support switching to something that helps my stock portfolio. The chemical division of integrated oil & gas companies make the base chemicals and sometimes the actual poly sheets that are used for modern packaging.
My Texas grocer has their own store brand and sells in these bags:
