At this point, I'm starting to think it's a prerequisite for being at the top of the pyramid. Everyone can blackmail everyone else so the overall direction of the borg never changes.

Lizardsquad had a theory before he was whacked that deep fakes would ultimately change everything by destroying that dynamic, and we might see actual feudalism rise into open warfare of the elite once all existing blackmail becomes useless.

It's an interesting, and scary, proposition.

I'd almost prefer some competition at the top to be honest. To know it's not just one group of evil fucks controlling everything.

I'd like to think both good and evil vie for the same positions at different points in time, but who the fuck knows anymore. Anymore, it really does just feel like our labor and existence is meant to serve someone in a higher position.

Our labor and existence is only meant to serve someone in a higher position because we willing submit to slavery.

That's our fault.

I'm not so sure. I don't know how old you are, but I was born in 86, and this country was on its way to rot long before then. The soonest I could have done something was maybe 2008 or so, but at that point, I was just thrilled to be getting out of academia.

And in all seriousness, trying to do something in 2008, when you're 22 years old, after the country has been rotting for well over a few decades, when I didn't even know half the shit I know now... it would be like pissing in the ocean and expecting it to stop waves.
